The Geolandars seem to get terrible reviews. I wasn't looking for an off-road tire, so I went with Kumho Solus KR21s; while researching that, I found Kumho has a pretty good reputation. Can't speak to the ones you're talking about, though.

i had Kumho Road Venture AT KL78 all around back in feb. 2010 and seem to work wvery well for me. but last month i had replace my front 2 tires with lexington ES-335. they were the cheapest ones that they could sell. and i noticed a big/ huge diffference in preformance. these tires have exllent traction. i dont like the solo just better getting any other kumho but solo. also my dad has Michelin Cross Terrains on his 04 trailblazer and he love them. for the price he paid it was worht it.
