I put Toyo versado cuv tires on last week and the ride is so much better. Believe it. Rick2456 put on Michelin tires and has been saying for the past 2 years how much better his ride is. I cant speak for all new tires, but I know I did alot of research before buying mine and it came down to Michelins or Toyos. I should have put them on along time ago.

The V8 Borrego being able to tow 7500 LBS has a stiffer suspension than the V6 Borrego. I put a set of General Grabber HTS on my V6 Borrego for $600 OTD and it rides a bit smoother than with the original Hankooks. It is doubtful that different tires on a V8 Borrego will yield much ride difference. There aren't many (if any) vehicles with a soft ride that can tow up to 7500 LBS. If you don't have to tow something over 4000 LBS, the V6 rides a little smoother and can tow most toys under 5000 LBS.

Hi Folks,

I originated this thread. Part of the problem I had is that the shocks were leaking on my Borrego. I have the V6 model. The local dealership and Kia Canada are having a lot of trouble getting an ETA on the shocks. These particular shocks are on back order with no ETA.
