No problems with them. They continue to be quiet and smooth. No excessive treadwear. I would definitely buy these again.

These Kumho tires replaced the original Continentals on my BMW 528, and I like them better overall. They are noticeably quieter and smoother riding than the old Continentals. Steering precision and road feel seem reduced a tiny bit, but the handling feels the same overall. No problems on dry or wet pavement, no hydroplaning through puddles. They have much better traction in snow than the Continentals (which were awful). They have a good treadwear rating, so I'm hoping for a long tread life.
