Initial Review, 1,500 Miles on Tires
January 06, 2014

For over 10 years I have purchased only Michelins becasue I knew they would track staight,handle well in all conditions, and last for over 60,000 miles. They cost a bit more but I was not willing to take chances based on some poor choices in the past. When it was time to buy tires for our Honda CRV I cringed at paying over $650 installed for the Defenders and I looked for other options. I noticed the Kumho Sense and decided that if I was going to go cheap, I might as well go really cheap so I began to investigate the tire. I could not find any tests, but all of the reviews I could find were positive. The look of the tire reminded me of the Michelin X so I took a chance and purchased a set. So far I could not be more pleased. They track straight, ride well, and handle well in both dry and wet conditions. Every once a while it feels like there is a bit of flex or squirm in the sidewall, but it could just be my imagination because the OEM Bridgestones I replaced were very stiff. I would like to see a Tire Rack Test to verify my assessment. I would buy these tires again and recommend them without hesitation. I have also never written a review of any product but I felt that others could benefit from my experience due to the lack of available test data. Again, you will not regret buying a set of these tires. They perform very well and this is from a die-hard Michelin guy.
