Best mileage ever

Have been driving for 60 years multiple cars and tyres. Bought near new forester fitted with Bridgestone and had to get new tyres at 53000. Fitted Kumho 225/55R18 98H KL 33 and just change today at 159000ks. By far the most I have ever got on a set of tyres and double those of the Bridgestones. Very happy with price as well - $165 per tyre v $385 quoted for Bridgestone. Show details

immediate improved feel and noise drop

5 years on kumho crugen 7s' original with new koleos. researched the chatter, noticed what people reported and went with kl33s'. fitted alligned by a bob jane outlet. drive home 1 hour early morning, rain. this road is chewed up pretty bad. steering true responsive, tyres made handling easy, noise was sharply reduced even in these conditions. i tip my hat to all reviewers and to kumho . hopeful of 7 plus years of pleasant motoring. my only other contender was kumho hp71s'. ty everyone!!!!!! Show details

Buying them again and again says it all

my 2014 Kia Sorrento came factory fitted with these 235/55 r19 tyres and I was amazed to get 85000 ks from the first set so I bought them again last time. My car is now due tyres again and the speedo reading is 167000 ks so you guessed it, ordered again and they get fitted on Wednesday. In fairness I probably do 40% highway driving so perhaps this helps in longevity. I don't recall losing grip or feeling nervous in wet conditions. also tow a boat and trailer. While I cant compare performance with other brands I did look at other brand options and it seems that getting these fitted balanced and Wheel alignment for under $1k is also great value. Show details

These tryes are just brilliant

These tyres are just brilliant. I have just ordered another four for my Hyundai IX35, as I will be travelling over Easter. I checked my last purchase and these have lasted 6 years, they still have a few mm above the indicator. Totally brilliant value and safe. Show details

Best value for money tyre I have ever had. Went back to buy them again only to be told they no longer are in existance. Dry grip excellent. Wet Grip very good. Wear exceptional. Road noise good. Handling and comfort very good. Pity Kumho don't make them anymore.  Show details

Luxury Ride and improved handling

Had these fitted to our Subaru Outback a month ago and immediately noticed the improved ride, handling and reduced noise over the Bridgestones fitted from new. Would recommend these over much more expensive options. Would also recommend using Tyresales.com.au's mobile fitment. Easy, convenient. Show details

Good wear rate, good grip in the wet

came factory fitted on my Kia Sportage. have now done 55k with still about another 20k in tread left, however one was severely damaged by a road hazard so I bit the bullet and decided its worth buying four new ones. Cheapest price I could find was from K-Mart (My Car) at $178 each (A whole $1 cheaper than Bob Jane) but K-Mart were the only ones who had four in stock in my area Show details

Very happy with these tyres

I do a lot of driving on wet, icy, winding country roads so grippy tyres are important to me. These tyres have been great. They’re also great value for money. I’ve previously had Michelin or Bridgestone tyres but these perform as well in the wet. Show details

This is the second set I've bought, great value and handling

This is the second set I've purchased, Far superior to the original Bridgestone and about 40% cheaper. They handle better, run quieter, have great wet and dry handling. I couldn't recommend more highly for value and performance Show details

Brilliant tyres, won't buy anything else

I drive a 2007 Santa Fe Elite. 2.2 diesel. These tyres were factory fitted and got 80,000 ks out of the first set. Did an around Australia trip on the new set of KL33's and now at 182000 still have at least another 5000 ks before needing newbies. I run them at 40 psi. Show details ·  1

Not safe in wet

Average aquaplaning resistance, low wet grip, weak resistance to transverse aquaplaning... Only average dry grip and handling. My fav Kumho tyres were the Kumho Ecsta Supra 712. Every Kumho I have own since has poor wet weather performance. On a positive they are long wearing. Show details
