Follow-Up Review: 600 miles on tires
May 11, 2012
I have now driven on the tire for over 500 miles and I can say very comfortably that the kumho's are much more comfortable and create less noise then the OEM Mich's. I would buy them again in a hart beat. They corner strong but provide a much softer ride then the Mich's.

I have less then 100 miles on these tires but so far the ride is better then my OEM Michelin's, I will add to review with more miles under my belt. I want to say that the whole sales process and instalation through a third party worked perfect. I odered my tires on a Friday and the instalation location, a sears auto, recieved them on Tuesday. I am in chicago and the Tire Rack dist facility is in South Bend Indiana, but still excellent service. The sears auto service was quick and very resonably priced at 48.00 for all four. Overall I am very please with Tire Rack and their choice in third party installers.
