I bought the Kumho Solus KR21 to replace the loud and poor wear Continental tires on my Mazda. The Kumho tires have been great. I have 40,000 miles on them and the tread looks great. These are so much quieter. I love them! Would buy again without hesitation and highly recommend.

got a great deal, couldn't beat price. Possible long tread life so I'm told. Seems to get squirrely on grooved payment, never had new tires do this before, but am told this is a common thing now days. Not a month old yet but other than that real happy with tires.

I bought these tires to replaced the original equipment Continentals which were terrible tires. I was told by my dealer to expect around 40,000 miles treadlife although the tires had a 85,000 mile treadlife warranty. But considering the price, it was not a dealbreaker. <br />However, I now have 55,000 miles on these tires and probably can get another 10 to 15000 miles. Handling, ride comfort and noise have been excellent. I will definitely consider buying another set when the time comes.
