Kumho Solus KR21
Initial Review: 1,500 miles on tires
June 28, 2012

Put these tires on before a trip from San Jose to San Diego. My initial impression is that they are great tires and a great bargain. Very comfortable and quiet on the freeway and handled nicely on the curvy mountain roads. Considerably better on those respects than the Goodyear Integrity tires that were on the SUV when I bought it. The tires felt very planted and gave me a lot of confidence going through a dangerous stretch of road known as Pacheco Pass. I don't keep detailed mileage records, but I got 21 mpg going 75-80 mph for most of the trip. I was afraid of a drop off in gas mileage, but I normally don't get 20 mpg on my long trips. Can't comment on tread life as I only have about 1,500 mile on them...but so far I'm very glad I tried these tires.

I don't like how the tires pull all over the road on a grooved highway. My old tires did not. 155/80-13
