I have a couple WAN sites whose DC in continuously showing KCC event problems.
Will these response times cause these issues? What is the acceptable response times for replication partners?

a time below 100 ms should not worry you, but above 250 ms can be a bit of worry. Delay will incerease based on the path the packets take and the device in between or due to the load of the device or due to congestion of links etc

This is normal ping response over Internet. The problem should be packet losts - do you have any ?

Log on to one of the DC's and run a command prompt and type replmon.
Add all the DC's in your Forest/Domain.
Respond back with any errors that you are receiving.

The ping response times look OK.

Also,
Send a Ping with the optional parameter -l 4096 to increase the packet size that you are pinging with.

KCC errors are not big error, you have to check which DC is replicating to which dc & is the correct connection objects are created or not.
Also, verify sites & subnet mapping. Check link created for selecting replication partners.

Run repadmin /syncall /A/E/P/D

Above command will sync all the dc,if error comes with any DC will be seen.
