Tire Pros

Quiet and smooth tires. V good dry traction Acceptable wet traction

Tire Cons

Worries re treadwear as a function of very good dry grip

A good tire, at least as far as my 500 miles use :-) can tell. Smooth , quiet with V good dry traction and decent (better than my previous MXV4) wet traction. Although Boost onset can get them spinning wildly, in the rain if not careful. But that is more due to the car's power delivery than the tires. Notably previous MXv's were genuinely frightening under similar boost in the wet. These Kuhmos seem a large step forward.. hopefully a lasting effect, even when the tread wears ??. Time will tell.

Tire Pros

Tires handles higher speed cornering very well. Great Z rated tires.

Tire Cons

Seems that these tires loose air more than others when the weather changes.

We will absolutely look at these tires again when the time comes.

Tire Pros

Very good control; give confidence on winding northern New England roads.

Tire Cons

Tread Wear

Only about 3/32" tread left after only 9000 miles - all tires are evenly worn. Wife drives this car, and is probably the least aggressive driver on the road. I've had Ecsta ASX's on my Ford Contour, and have gotten 30,000 plus miles of wear - and my driving is spirited, though not crazy. Possibly the difference is the speed rating (V on the Contour's 205/60r15, as opposed to W for the 205/55r16 for the Mazda)?

Tire Pros

they are cheap but then again you get what you pay for

Tire Cons

they do not handle like i thought they would after 20 mile on them

after driving on the them i notice they did not handle as good as a Goodyear eagle gt hr series .... i felt that the rubber was harder therefore they could not take the turns as tight as i wanted them to be. To me handling is everything not the mileage. and these tires failed my expectations and should be labeled as a all season tire not a sport tire ...so i changed them to a Michelin tire sport . and have been happy with them ....Eddie Meneses
