June 05, 2013
Update after 20,000 miles driven. So far the tire continues to be adequate. overall ride quality is decent. handling and comfort is decent on dry and wet. Thread wear is above average...but excpected with such a high speed rating. Overall, would be happy to reccomend, given the price. would consider again.
Initial Review: 9,000 miles on tires

These tires were purchased to replace the crappy OEM Goodyear Eagle's. So far the Kuhmos have been an excellent choice, for the money!! After 9000 miles, these kuhmos' have seen heavy water, light snow, deep snow, and ice. These tires have pleasantly handled all conditions. They are very strong in dry, and wet. During this December the deeper snow and the typical slush (in N.E. USA and Canada) were not as easy to handle with these tires. These Kuhmos are rated for 55k miles tread life. But i doubt that will be acheived. For a ZR rated tire is suppose that is to be expected. The least favorite attribute is the higher than normal road noise. Overall we are happy the value of these Kuhmo's, expecially considering the price! Worth considering as an alternative.
