Kumho Solus KH16
Follow-Up Review: 55,000 miles on tires
After more than 50,000 miles put in to this set, it has performed credibly well enough for us to recommend this to anyone. We were able to run the entire set down to the allowable safe tread which is 2/32 without any mishaps such as punctures or worse a blow-out. The tires stood up well against those road hazards no one knows how or when it can get you stranded.<br><br>The noise level has remained tolerable and not that intrusive inside the cabin.<br><br>In adverse winter conditions, it has performed very well, except during the later stages of its useable life wherein treadwear has become shallower.<br><br>Again a very good solid purchase.
Initial Review: 5,000 miles on tires
The Kumho Solus KH16 exceeded my initial expectations. Very minimal road noise, my car handles great and for the value for money aspect, this finishes near the top. It's still summer here in the East Coast so I will make another update once winter sets in and we will be fortunate enough this year to have a pretty decent amount of snowfall.
