Initial Review, 42,000 Miles on Tires
April 19, 2014

Bought a pair for the front my 93 Sunbird SE,everyday work car. These tires out performed any tire I have ever owned. I never rotated them,always been on the front of a FWD car. I have pushed these tires to the test with hard cornering and fast accelerations at times. I have a 3.1 V6 with a lot of torque, with stock tires on hard acceleration would easily spin, these tire barely squealed,and grabbed the road. Had great traction in wet weather and really no hydroplaning,unless hitting a large puddle at a high speed, but manageable. These tires ran smooth and had grate responsiveness. I live in New England and these tires are not for winter driving, they do okay in a few inches of snow but beyond that you need to run dedicated snow tires! Great tire based on performance and price! I have had Kumho tires on other vehicles I owned and have always performed well! Do your homework and read the reviews see what best fits your driving needs. Good luck and I hope this helps
