Kumho Solus KR21
Follow-Up Review: 30,000 miles on tires
December 01, 2012
My trusty car at 236K went on life support this past spring. I sold it, but I can tell you this, the Kumho's never let me down. This is a great tire on this big real wheel drive beast with an LT1 V8 Corvette motor.<br><br>I have purchased three different series of Kumho tires for different vehicles, and so far, none have let me down. I may not buy Kumho every time, but I always review what they have to offer.
Initial Review: 100 miles on tires
December 13, 2010

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.
