After just over 2 years, I've had to replace these tires already. Unfortunately, the lousy tread life negates everything I liked about them before.

These Kumhos are definitely a step up from the factory Goodyears that came with my 2009 Vibe GT. Traction and handling are at least as good as the original tires, and I've noticed a slight improvement in ride comfort, noise levels, and braking performance. Not only that, but these tires are less expensive than the originals. My only complaint is the lack of rim protectors, but the positives far outweigh that one negative.
