Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus XC

This tire was standard on my 2015 Hyundai Sonata Limited 2.0 T. After 2000 miles I am extremely satisfied with the performance on both dry and wet roads. The ride is quiet and smooth, and works well on the car. I would definitely recommend it.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA11

I bought this tire to replace a set of Firestone Touring Affinity Tires. Those tires lasted over 55,000 miles but experienced the occasional flat and had loud road noise. The Kumho Solus tires have greatly exceeded my expectations over these first 10,000 miles. I cannot notice any treadwear thus far whatsoever, which makes me believe these tires will live up...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

I purchase these tries back in Dec 2015, and so far to date i've put about 1,500 miles on them. As far as snow and Ice go i have no report because i baby my 2012 Volks CC so she stayed in the garage doing our Southern MD snow storms. The noise level is so much better than the OE Continental that came with the car. The only thing i noticed and I saw this in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

I just replaced the original Continental CV95 with these Platinums and the are possibly the best tires I've ever purchased. Important to my driving habits are Road Feel, Cornering, Braking, Acceleration & Wet Traction. Also Treadwear, Durability against NYC potholes and Value are vital. Said and done, this tire exceeds my expectations!This past Summer I had...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KH25

OEM tires. Bought the car with 6K on it. In the 4000 miles we've put on it, they have been barely acceptable going on road trips. Somewhat harsh ride, VERY LOUD on certain types of pavement, especially on concrete. Handling was acceptable. The real problems appeared the first time it rained. These tires are HORRIBLE in the rain. I was going 10-20 miles an...  Read More

Are Your All-Season Tires Ready to Handle All Seasons?

There’s no doubt that when it comes to driving in inclement weather during the winter months, nothing beats a set of winter / snow tires. However, if you reside in an area that receives only light snow and an all-season tire is all you need, how that tire performs during the winter months is typically the deciding factor when purchasing your replacement...  Read More

Tires for Your Daily Driver

Sometimes all we need is basic transportation - a way to get to work and then back home again. When it comes to simple driving, it is easy to forgo some features in exchange for reliability. One feature that should not be forgotten is tires. This is not to say that you need to break the bank, but arguably the most important safety feature on your vehicle is...  Read More

Three Tire Brands You Shouldn't Overlook When Shopping for Affordable Tires

It can be easy for a consumer to be overwhelmed by the dozens of tire brands available on the market. During the shopping process, unfortunately many tire shoppers often overlook unfamiliar brands of tires without actually looking into them first. It's understandable that very few people want to take the time to research all of the lesser-known brands of...  Read More

Affordable Snow Tires for Winter Driving

These all-season tires are offered in many sizes and are available for a variety of different applications. They also are a great value for all-season tires for areas with no or very light snow. If your area has moderate to heavy snowfall or if you are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Road Venture SAT KL61

I did a ton of research before settling on these tires and I'm so happy with them so far. Such a better difference then the stock tires that were on this before. Have great traction on dry and wet roads. Haven't got any snow this season yet but I can't wait to see how they do this winter! Really a solid city tire for my Jeep. You won't regret these!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2

I owned the original Revo; this review is for that. They were a great tire for winter driving in CO and MT. They were shot/mostly bald by 30k when they were retired; fwiw they honestly could have been rotated more often than they were. The traction was quite poor on wet/snow near the end of life, but they still worked well in dry conditions. Considering the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Road Venture AT KL78

If you live in the northeast, you must get these tires. Terrific all season tires, especially in snow i could drive through over a foot of snow from basic startup & drive. Steering quickly is not the best, but you don't need to take corners at 60mph anyway. I would feel safe letting my kids drive with these tires. Treadwear was average, I drive spirited so i...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

Bought these tires as recommended by Tire Rack. Wow, what a difference tires make for steering , braking and noise level. These Kumho Tires replaced the harsher and much louder B. F. Goodrich Tires. The car has actually made the car seem brand new. Anyone who has a mid- size car will seem a different animal if you use these tires. You could pay more for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA31

Haven't had the chance to try them out in the snow and ice yet. No side wall roll when Corning, does not follow groves on concrete highways. Responds very well. No noise at all and took very little weight to balance. I work for a dealership, this is the best bang for the buck. Highly recommend.   Read More

Original equipment and still the best.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LE Sport

I purchased a set of these tires for my '88 Toyota Supra in staggered sizes: 235/45R17 Front, 255/40R17 Rear My car is summer only, and used as a fun car and not a daily driver. I wanted a set of performance tires that weren't so expensive that I would feel bad doing a track day, auto-x, or a smoky burnout. These tires fill that gap quite well.There's no...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KR21

Initially these tires were impressive in a positive way. Unfortunzately as the miles mounted up the noise they create is almost unbearable! Ice traction leaves much to be desired. Tread ware will probably be 2/3rds of the rating which is 85k. My advise is donor buy this tire!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta STX KL12

So far so good. I bought these tires to replace a set of continentals and so far I am very pleased. Due to the sticky compound these tires are composed of, traction and cornering stability is awesome. I am also impressed with the wet weather performance even though my particular tires are wide, 255's on the front and 285's on the rear. At this point I cannot...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KH16

Factory tires were Firestone FR710s. Those wore out at 33k. Thought these would be better. Toyota dealer highly recommended the kumho's. These tires have about 15k left. Noise continues to increase as the tires wear. They are wearing evenly as they are rotated every 5k. My advise is spend a little more up front and get a quality set of tires. The kumho's are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

This is my 3rd set of tires on my Hyundai Genesis. OEM tires Dunlop 500 were horrible. 2nd set were Kumho and they were better, but these Continentals are by far the best traction, ride and noise level of these 3 tires I have had on this car. My next set will definetly be another set of these Continental pure contact with ECO plusA great tire for this car....  Read More
