Influenced by AutoBild magazine review and price. The Kumho's have replaced Pirelli P6000 and are considerably quieter in town and motorway driving. Excellent dry grip and after hitting standing water at speed, resistant to aquaplaning. Decreased the firmness of cars' ride don't feel every pothole with a sudden jolt. Can't comment on wear but would recommend.

Did mean to buy Kumho KU31 after looking at reviews on this site, however I ordered the wrong ones. These tyres however, are fantastic. I was going to replace the continentals with the brilliant Uniroyal Expert, but found the sidewall was a bit too weak for my driving. However as soon as I drove home I sensed a difference, much quieter, much smoother and much grippier in wet and dry. It has stopped the previous over steer and grip brilliantly.2000 miles later its only got better. Recommend them highly.

Only Had these on for about 700mi, but so far very impressed, they were the cheapest tyre I could get for my awkwardly sized wheels (only had a choice of 6 or 7 makes)and I'm very impressed with them. noise is very low compared to the Hankooks I had previously. Looking forward to seeing how they perform in the snow thats forecast later this week.

No problems in wet or dry, even under heavy braking/cornering.

Definitely recommend these, I was dubious of buying the cheapest tyres available to start with but they're performing better than the continentals that were on the car as standard.

Will update later for wear and snow performance

Subaru Impreza

Great tyres. Took roughly 800kms to really come good. A first were a little greasy, but still progressive. Once I had roughly 800+kms on them they really started to work well. Very balanced, with reduced understeer and very confidant on full power out. The shoulders have stood up well considering I have done 3 track days on them.

Will definitely grab another set once these are done. Yes, there are better tyres out there---At double the price.

Easy decision really.
