Kumho KL78 is an All-Terrain tire. Do you need a tire that is aggressive. A better choice would be a tire built for the highway rather than off road use. If you like Kumho, the KL51 is an all-season tire. Uniroyal Laredo HD/H or Firestone Transforce HT are a couple of other quality, well priced tires.

There are many others, but IMHO you need to look for an all season tire.

The tire size 235/85R16 LR "E" is the replacement for the 7.50R16.
