    Default Khumo Tyres = Bad?

    Heard a couple of people now having problems with blistering or blowouts on their Khumo tyres...

    Might be worth checking yours for odd defects?

    I got 2 on the back and I'm so impressed with. The feel and lack of noise since changing them I'm saving up for 2 more to replace the poor grip of the old ones on the front
    Which ones have the problems might be worth a little investegating

    Could it be wheel damage or a puncture?

    Same here got them on mine, never had a problem had the car for 4 1/2 years. My son has them on his Mazda6 ts2 estate no problems, and my daughter has them on her Kia Cee'd no problems either.
