Follow up:<br>Well, I had some nice words for these tires, and then...<br>This turns out to be probably THE WORST tire I had in my life! They became very noisy, uncomfortable, and then the worst, one tire developed flat spot that you cannot feel under palm, but when you drive up until 50mph, you know for sure something is wrong with tire. Passangers were asking me whether my car is OK.<br>Nice try Kumho, but maybe after several decades I come back again to you!

Overall good tire! Nothing special, but it does its job well. I had on previous car Bridgestone Potenza 970AS, and Kumhos are not Potenza's, that is for sure. I got these tires new on my CC when I purchased it with 28k. Now car has 41k, and they are doing good. probably I would never buy these tires if they have not been on the car. I have to say, they proved better then Good year Eagle GT that I had once.
For this money, well worth tire!
