I am happy with my Kumho tires. I had them put on in Oct. Great tires for the price.

I need to purchase another one due to a slow leak. It has been plugged but it is still leaking

I brought my tires from Tirerack and of course the price went up since Oct 2008. Oh well, what you going to do?? I had the dealer install my tires but I will try one of their recommended dealers.

Love my Kuhmos!


20k miles and still going strong with lots of tread, great traction wet and dry, quiet riding, and best of all GREAT PRICE!

I suffer from reality

Are you all still finding they work well in snow with some miles on them?

Dang, just found Kumho today at local dealer. Looks like my Eagle LS are shot to hell at about 32K miles, second set no less. Not going to be fooled again. Eagles have no mileage warranty, Kuhmo has 85K.

The tires are 107 each and add tax and disposal, mounting or whatever else. Driveaway price 563.00. Going to get them in maybe a week, they have 50 bucks off that price as a President day sale rebate.

Why can't a US manufacturer come with that price and that warranty? I had been set to get BF Goodrich Long-trails at 158 each till I saw this today.

I am glad to see many others are following with Kumho purchases. I paid about $460 installed at a Sears auto center. In Canada where I live, these tires sold for $189 each plus,plus. My original Eagles were OK and lasted about 94000kms so I got decent life out of them. For the price of these tires, I won't be too disappointed if they only last 60000kms although they are rated for 110000kms!

These are great in the snow and wet.

Highly recommended.

OK, I'm sold on the Kumho's.

After almost 90,000km the treads on the original GY's is now down to the wear indicator, and I don't want to go through another winter slipping and sliding through the snow.

I was having a difficult time justifying $1500 for new rims and winter tires though. All the tire shops I spoke with recommended staying with an 18" rim due to clearance issues with the front rotors. But I don't want ANOTHER set of expensive rims and tires...I guess I better find a good quality set of all-seasons.

Most of the reviews about the KR21's have been extremely positive, and I know that cost shouldn't be the deciding factor when selecting a set of tires...but $500 out the door is VERY tempting. I'm willing to give them a try. Even if I end up with a few balancing issues, it will be no different than what I've had to deal with owning the GY's.

Though I 've read about balancing problems with the Kumhos, this is the first I've heard anyone complain about that issue with the GY's. For just a little more $$, you can go with the Coopers and not have the balancing problems some have reported with the KR21's.

I've had the Kumho SOLUS KR21 on now for about 4k miles. No balance issue here. They're all around a pretty great tire, and much quieter than the orginal Goodyears. Hope they last the 85k they're warrantied for.

I'm about 15,000 miles in. I've had to have them balanced more times than I'd like. Overall I'm satisfied, but next time I'll probably get the Coopers.

I'm at 10K on the Coopers and couldn't be happier with them. No balance problems at all, and ride, looks and wear are all great (so far). But winter weather is coming, so we'll see how they are then.

Mine is almost at 40k and at first look, if you didn't know any better, the threads look new.

Almost 20K on the Kumho's, no visible wear. A slight price to pay for tires that show no wear, they are a bit noisier than the stock Good-years.

I would get them again if I ever needed to replace them but now the tires may outlast the Mo.

How do you find the wet traction on these? I have them and find them a bit slippery when wet. Great dry traction though.

Can't say I noticed a difference but I honestly don't drive that much in rain or at least at interstate speeds in rain.

My stock tires would have been 3/4 shot with 20K on them, these show no wear.
