Comment:
These tires were factory installed on my new 2012 KIA Rio SX. Seemed good at first, but noisy and the tread wear is not good. I have ZERO tread left and I have only put 30,000 mostly highway miles on this car! That's half of what was expected for the tread wear warranty. Maybe my expectations are too high? I live in Florida and the roads are much better than up north and I do not drive like a crazy lady or break fast. So, I am not sure I would advise getting these tires. I am looking for another brand to replace them with and I do not think I will get warranty coverage. I was told by my KIA dealer that they doubt it, but of course, they were willing to sell me 4 new tires...I love my KIA but not these tires!
