I bought these and took a chance since they are made in Korea. I had Hankook Optima 614 on my car they lasted 60,000 but very noisy. I have had these Kumho on for two months and they are very quite, very sticky to the road. They handle better than my old tires. they are 600 Treadwear, A for Temperature and A for Traction. A good value and would not hesitate rebuy.
I've only had the tires on my Prius for a few hundred miles, but so far the Prius says I'm getting better mileage than with my previous Hankook mileage plus tires. My Woodriver, IL Walmart had my four tires installed in an hour (as promised) over the supper hour on a Friday (that's where I was when they called my cell to say things were done). The price on these tires was great compared to other similarly rated tires. They got here from Tennessee in just four days. Oh, and some of the other sites I looked at let me know right now there was a $50 rebate from the manufacturer (form downloaded from their site) right now. I hope that all works out and the mileage and performance continues to impress.
From the beg of this process of ordering these Kumho Ecsta LX tires online at Walmart.com, to the installation - everything was great. The tires were delivered to the Kingman Walmart 4 days ahead of the original promised date. What a nice touch! The gentleman who checked me in was fast and efficient. The counter person, Renee, was very professional and helpful AND friendly and the installer did a good and efficient job in the time he promised. The wheel balancing is right on, which is a hard thing to get right with specialty wheels. These Kumho tires provide an excellent ride and are probably 90% quieter than the tires replaced. That is an excellent and most welcome feature. The tires also look very good. I am pleased w this product and the Kingman Walmart Automotive Department. This is the kind of customer service that has never gone out of style at Walmart and the Kingman Automotive Center folks are a pleasure to deal with! That's why I keep coming back and why I recommend Walmart to my friends when they need tires and other products for their vehicles. Thanks, Walmart!!
I purchased 4 of these tires a few years back and within 6 months had to return 3 of them becuse they got knots in the sides and its like they were egg shaped. they rode horrible. The shop said the belts had broken and replaced those for me with the same ones and within 6 months I had to have all 4 replaced again because of the same issue. Thats 7 tires in one 1 year. In the following year I had replaced 3 of those with different tires because of the same issue. Fast foward to now and I have one of these tires left on my car that is almost worn out. So out of 11 tires I only got to completly use one to it fullest life expectancy. LAST time I will ever buy Kumho.
After 30000 milles I need new tires. The tread doesn't last.60000 mile warranty isn't worth the hassle.
