Kumho Solus KR21

First off I have to give major kudos to The Tire Rack. Because of the age and type of car I own, finding a tire store who carries the correct passenger car tire my car specifies was impossible. No major outlet offers them and I was not about to install a performance or SUV tire on this car, which is all they offer in this size. At the time I bought these The Tire Rack offered six different choices, and in stock. Service - great. The tires are sitting in my driveway less than 24 hours after ordering, with standard freight.

I picked these and I thought later I may have made a mistake because of the somewhat low price and also I had never heard of this brand, but so far I could not be happier with them. They changed the character of my car. It now rides quiet like it should and has great control in dry and wet conditions, and still dampens road noise. You will not remember every tar strip between Chicago and New York. At this time my opinion is this is about the best tire I have owned. I have not driven through a Great Lakes winter yet. I'll post another review to cover that next April.

Also the recommended installer, who happened to be a local Firestone store who did not have a suitable tire to offer, offered very good service.
