    Default Anyone had experience with Kumho tyres?

    Unfortunately at the stage where I need to consider changing all four tyres

    Has anyone had experience of Kumho tyres? They seem quite good value for the money? I can get them for £59.15 each and fitting shouldn't be too much locally. That's for 225/45 R17, Kumho KH15.

    Thanks

    I've got them on my 19's and would say that for the money you can't get better. I paid around £70 each instead of £230 each for Conti's!!!!

    Serious? See that would put me off. I had a set of cheaper tyres on my last car (Focus) and I dreaded every wet roundabout because it was like driving over oil.
    Any other recommendations? Don't mind paying a bit but can't afford the really nice stuff!

    they came on my 19's that i have on now, and car feels very planted with them on

    however! they still dont provide enough grip under heavy acceleration and mine will still spinup, but i dont know if it just pumping out too much torque

    They seem fine on my Siggy, I have extra load 17's fitted. No problems that I can see, but the wife drives the car most of the time, so extreme braking and acceleration aren't an issue
