Had to replace my old tires due to premature dry rot--not happy with Yokohama (bought these on recommendation). I had put Kuhmo Raod Venture APT KL51's on another vehicle and have had very good luck, so I decided to try this Solus KR21 model out. Wow, wish I would have bought these the last time I put tires on this car. My first 100 miles of experience with this tire was in weather that changed from rain to snow, and icy roads. These tires held the road like glue. I don't think my old tires were ever as good as these when they were new. I normally prefer to try to buy Made in U.S.A., but this Korean tire brand seems to really make a nice tire. And my old rear wheel drive beast seems to like them, too.
