Follow-Up Review: 30,020 miles on tires
November 17, 2012
BEWARE: This tire is awesome for about 20k miles, after that it's all down hill. At 35k, its not safe to drive on wet payment and would be a nightmare on snow or ice. At 38K, mine are done. kuhmo is helping with warranty. So It will save me about $300.00 or so. Awesome tire for 1st 20K or so. Super tire in snow, but not after 20K oe so.
Initial Review: 29,050 miles on tires

I have Kuhmo tires on three Mazda 3s, they have been great so I bought this set for my truck.
At first, they were awesome in ice and snow and a great tire. They were rated 50 or 60 thousand miles. At about the 20k mark, these tires were showing extreme wear and now they need replacing with 29000 miles as they are unsafe to drive on wet pavement. They replaced goodyears with 59K on them.
I would have never paid 220 buck each for a 30 thousand mile tire. What a bummer
