Outdid any expectations, so am writing a review


You'd think generally speaking a tyre is a tyre. I did. However I got these fitted (primarily because there was a special 3 for 4 at a nearby centre on the Kumho range). Didn't really think I would be impressed so much to jump back online and review a tyre, but here I am. Why?
The quietness really exceeded my expectations. I have a Subaru xv. The tyres it came with were fine, lasted 5 years/40,000 kms. But once getting the KU27's on, i realised how noisy the old ones were. Both rolling on the freeway, and even simply turning corners in carparks!
Have also had a drive in the wet and they handled well, which I would expect from a premium tyre.

Purchased in October 2019 at Kays Discount Tyres for $580.

Khumo KU27


I fitted these to a VE Commodore, 245/45/18. I do roughly 100000kms a year so go through some tyres. I rate the KU27 better than a lot of high end tyres I have used before. Durable, incredibly quiet and comfortable good for more than 100000kms. They are the best passenger car tyre I have used. I paid $140 a tyre on sale compared to a $250 Bridgestone, lasted twice as long and I could not believe how much quieter. I would highly recommend them on any passenger car. I'm not generally a review writer but really did rate these tyres.

Simply a brilliant tyre


I have just replaced a set of 225-50x18's on my Toyota Aurion that have done 50,000k and there was probably a few more k's left in them. They have been the best tyre I have ever run on any car I have owned.
They are quiet, comfortable, long wearing and handle extremely well on front wheel drive vehicles.
I cannont rate them high enough....you just need a set.

Unfortunately they do not make their this tyre in my size anymore so I tried a set of Nitto 860's and I think they are probably a better tyre than the Khumho especially in the wet.
Tyre life remains to be seen.

brilliant tyre.
I put two on the front of a 2003 camry in early 2010 (replaced the dunlop sp300), and immediately noticed the difference. Quieter, more stable, beautiful to drive on wet or dry. I have been told to expect a life of around 50-60'000kms!

The Dunlops were terrible by comparison.

I have Pirelli P6's on the rear. The Pirelli's have better grip than both the Dunlops & Kumho's, but use a softer compound to achieve this - hence a shorter life.
When they wear, i'll be replacing them with Kumho ku27's!
Very quiet, stable on road, excellent all round performance in wet & dry, very reasonable price

Great tyre, amazing price!


Do you still have KU27? How good are they in Wet/Dry, I'm assuming will be close or same as KU31.
