Initial Review, 30,000 Miles on Tires
July 15, 2012

Gone through many tires over 130,000 miles and these have been some of the best in terms of wear, dry and wet traction, and noise. Cornering with these tires is superb. I have a test situation where I measure this and the Kumhos come out well first time and every time. I am replacing two.

Work well also in the mix of seasons in North Texas with decent light snow/ice (nothing is really good in ice) traction, sane wet weather, and of course, the summer like now when the ground is so hot there is no such thing as "cold" tap water.

Price can't be beat - had some more expensive rubber (Dunlops) and did not get mileage I get from the Kumhos.
