Feel every bump in the road.

The salesman of course tried to up sell to me, telling me this was a great tire for the price and that it would provide a nice ride. Within 2 days a tire had blown out from trying to get out of the way of a pothole. The ride is not smooth and I am not happy with this tire or the salesman who told me all these great things about the tire and me being at their mercy because I needed new tires.

Tire Pros

grip. handling, value

Tire Cons

tread wear

have bought these tires for both of our vehicles (Mazda 6 and Ford Freestar van) and am very happy with their performance and price. I know tread wear will be a bit higher than some other types, but am willing to sacrifice that for the steering feel, handling and wet-weather traction.

Tire Pros

Price Road Noise(the lack of) Warranty Grip when warmed up

Tire Cons

Little loose when cold

I have purchased my last 4 sets of tires from Discount, this is the second set of ASX's I've bought. Had General UHP and Dunlop Direza 101's both of which were noisier than the Kuhmo's and the Dunlops were garbage, noisy and short life will keep me away from them in the future and Direct no longer carries the Generals. The Kuhmo's were the first set of replacement tires and now the 4th for my 06 Mazda 6S and will likely be what gets put on next time as well. They are quiet, ride and handle well all at a great price.
