    I've got KH11 on the work horse ibiza and they are surprising good in both wet and dry. i know they get mixed reports, but been happy with mine. can't comment on any others though.

    My understanding is that the Kumho Tyres were originally a 'budget' tyre. I had them on my TSW Pace alloys when I first bought them, and to be honest they were OK, but there's obviously better out there.

    I believe they have spent some more money on development and the tyres are much better. Just remember you get what you pay for.

    I had a set last year and they were terrible in the wet and only lasted about 9k. I'm no wheel spinner ether so was a bit gutted at the wear rate.

    I had Kumho Ecsta's on my Saab and for 225/45/17's i paid £56 each and £5 for fitting/balancing.
    A very good tyre in the dry but not as good as the Pirelli's i did have originally, then again they were less than half the price

    My nct5's are getting replaced with Kumho's when they finally hurry up and wear out, I've had
    them on the last vec and my astra before that and I really rate them. I had a set of KU11's on
    the astra and i'd done 22,000 miles on them when I sold it and they still had about 3mm left on
    them. I can't really comment wear wise on the ecsta sport's that were on the last vec as they
    weren't really on long enough before I got rid but performance wise they were fine.

    All in all, a really good tyre for the money. Like AJA said, they originally started out as a budget brand
    but they have put a lot of money into r&d over the last few years and have improved vastly.

    like AJA said they use to be a very low budget tyre 4 / 5 years ago i used them on the Omega £48 a corner they must have made big leaps in quality for a price like that.
