Tire Pros

Dry traction Wet traction (rain)

Tire Cons

Snow traction

This is actually a nice tire. Wet and dry traction are noticeably different than the Goodyear Eagle RS-As that were on the car from the factory. However, this tire should not be called an all season tire. Traction in the snow is horrible even in the lightest of accumulation. The previously mentioned RS-As that only had about 1/32 of tread remaining before being replaced were better in the snow. Do not buy this tire if you have any intention of driving in the snow. I'm actually thinking of contacting Kumho directly about the fact that they adevertise these as all season and its like driving racing slicks as soon as the snow starts to fall.

Tire Pros

Pricing Style / Appearance Quite ride

Tire Cons

Inconsistent tire pressure

The Kumho is the 3rd set of tires for this vehicle, My impression is this set is superior in ride quality, road noise, and durability when compared to my previous sets from Bridgestone & Michelin.
