Nice tire. Really nice tire. Rather smooth & quiet. Exceptionally true (no run-out) on the balancer. Could feel the difference through the steering wheel at any speed. About half again better treadwear rating than the previous set (Yoko Avids). Had a pull to the right, but now drives straight after swapping the front tires side-to-side. One of the least expensive tires in its class, but rated better than average.

I've had two other sets of different size/model Kumhos on another vehicle. Wore like iron, had a night & day (better) ride and handling compared to the Generals they replaced. In other words, I'm sold on this brand. It'll be tough to get me to change!
