Horrible tyres and they’re only a week Old!
Bought these tyres from Tyroola an online shop for tyres. Got them fitted by the shop as designated by Tyroola on the 22/05/21.
After 2 weeks on driving on these kumho sense tyres everyday for 20km each way on the m4 to and from penrith, I could say that they are what you pay for! They are horrible on the wet when we had the wet weather on the 3/06/2021 trying to accelerate and make a right hand turn in a dropped green the tyres have no grip at all! They slip out, LOOSE traction like you got bald tyres!
They are also very noisy! Had to get ...my car inspected and even had to put back my old steel rims and tyres on the car to rule out what the noise is as every time I accelerate at around 50km/h - 80km/h something was making a hissing noise on acceleration. Found out they were these kumho tyres making the noise. Other way to describe the noise is like rubbing plastic together when your accelerating on around those speeds. I personally wouldn’t buy kumho again. I only bought them as someone recommended them to us we always been with the top brands like Bridgestone, Dunlop or Michelin. From our experience they’re horrible and would never buy them again, because of especially the traction on the wet and safety. Steer clear of you love your life! Another cheap material tyres made in CHINA!
Purchased in May 2021 at Tyroola for $313.
Garbage. Do not buy!
Absolute garbage in wet weather. No grip at all & you have to come off a rolling start, if you try to accelerate from a start, they spin & slide. DO NOT BUY!

Would maybe use on a trailer.
Tyres were on the 2L Mazda 3 when we bought it. Only three years old and plenty of tread left. Made in China. Hardly any grip in the dry and less in the wet. If you value your life buy something else. Thought there was something wrong with the car until I fitted new Dunlop FM800's which made the world of difference. Maybe use these Khumo's on a trailer. Maybe.
Dangerous in the wet.
Zetum tyres are great wearing but no grip in the wet. I drive a 200c merc. No power. Twice the back end has lost all grip. At 40kms per hour i slid 150m in the wet. Full brake lock. Like driving on ice just that i live in queensland.
Purchased in January 2019 for $80.
Kumho is generally quite reliable and I've had them over many years.
Tyre is good on wet weather and so far I've been able to get about 40k Kms out of the tyres on a normal hatchback. One thing this tyre isn't good is with slight sandy road as my tyres has screeched before taking off on a slight slope.
Performance/fuel wise, it's has been the same as the other brand I've used which is generally Toyo.

Its been 7 months, 6000km with these tyres and they are very quiet, they ride very good in the wet and car brakes very good as well. I mainly drive on the freeway. I keep them on 35psi all round and i bought them on special from Tyresales with free fitting and balancing at my chosen fitment centre.
Bang for the buck
Had been using this tyres for around 2000 kms and no complains so far. Road noise is existent to none. I mainly use my car for city driving and out of town trips on the weekend. Hadn't had any issues at all. As a car owner just regularly rotate your tyres to have even tyre thread.
Very quiet tyre for commune tasks. PSI rating 38, can go up to 40 if you want but this is where you want the tyres at to be running at so you get even wear on the rubber. I'm not sure what else to say....
