I have no experience with them and my car needs some new rubber.

In a word, yes.

I've run Kumhos on several cars for many years.  

High performance, all season, all terrain: I have no complaints.

Its all I will put on the GF's car ..... they have the longest mileage rating.

Yes they do.I've sold quite a few around here over the years with no problems.For the price,they are a good tire.

Personally,I push American made,but the customer is always right.

just put some on my 4runner.  the road venture a/t's.  good tire.

Had them on the front of a used Accord I bought 20 (YIKES!) years ago.

Boy were they sticky!!!  


ETA:  I'm becoming a fan of Hankooks for the cheap stuff.  For the $$, they seem to perform, and hold up pretty well.

Put them on the wifes Toyota no problems when there were no BFGs to be found, good wear, and they have good rain stability.

+1

They are hard as rocks.  I have some on my 87 camaro. I have not left a stop light without spinning them.  Corners...spinning.  I can NOT wear the bastards out.   I have put 20k miles on the tires, and they were used when I got them.  They still have another year or more of tread left on them.

I have literally abused them with the hope that they would wear down enough to justify replacing them with something with better grip (crazy logic, I know).

The downside is they do not have much grip when stopping either.  Plan ahead.  Long tread wear means less grip.

I'm putting the second set of those on my Xterra next month.

Running a set on my F-150 and love them. Way better than the Goodyears that were OEM.

I have my eyes on these but I'm not quite ready to pull the trigger on 'em.

Have used them a few times. No complaints.
Link Posted: 3/9/2010 7:20:28 AM EDT
My friend put them on a car and hated them... he later sold the car to me, and I swear they were the worst tires I've ever had.  Though, I guess anyone can make a high-mileage tire that has no traction whatsoever.  They had rain-traction even when it was dry.

Fantastic tire.  I ran those on my Maxima and I'm ordering a set soon for my BMW.

I wouldn't put a set of goodyears on my car if they were free.



I take that back, I would - and I'd video tape a smokey burnout in my drive and then post it here. Pop!

Good tire for the money.

I have a set of the Road Venutre AT on my F150 with only about 7000 miles on them and they would not grip at all in snow even with weight in the back.  I am in the process of picking out new tires now.
Link Posted: 3/9/2010 7:33:32 AM EDT
Put a cheap set on my Accord last week. I think they're rated to 85k, and have a full warranty for the first 25% of their life. Can't argue with the price, as this is just a commuter car and I'm planning on selling it in the next month or so.

True, the ATs aren't siped enough for good snow grip.

I got a pair of the run flats on the MINI. Seems to work pretty well. Getting another pair soon when the last two Goodyears wear out.

I've had Kuhmo Ecstas on 2 of my trucks, great tires...

Dunlop SP20's. Great tire, great price.

Great wet weather traction too.

I think they are 55,000 mile rated.
