Good quality tyre at an affordable price
Bought this tyre as a replacement to one of my punctured tyre on a bad luck day.
It is the exact same brand and model as the original one that is provided with my KIA Cerato Sports+.
Sleek and sporty look, with good drip on normal days. Glides easily on wet days from stationary to acceleration position on slopes but not a big deal.
Purchased in August 2018 at Bob Jane T-Marts.
Great tyres at great price
These tyres were suggested to me for my Audi TT .. after doing some research and then I spoke to various tyre companies and they also highly recommended them ..
-They are quiet
-They hold so well to road in wet -conditions
-They look good
-And the price very reasonable in comparison to rival tyre brands
Purchased in July 2019.
Excellent all round tyres
Needed to replace some Bridgestone tyres which I wasn't happy with. Did not want them again as too pricey and not good value for money. Had Kumho recommended by a few colleagues so spoke to a few tyre places. Kumho did come recommended by all. Decided to take the plunge and purchase.
These tyres are very durable, handle great for a front wheel manual vehicle and solid in the wet. Still.slides a bit in the wet but far better than Bridgestone. Would recommend to others as a good value tyre and very well priced for quality
215/55/17 Kumho Solus HS51
Changed from 2 stars to 4 stars
These are a very noisy tyre - I found they do not like my 2011 Honda Odyssey at all, I have already had 2 tyres replaced straight away as I had a bad shudder through the whole car which felt like the tyres were out of round - the shudder has never really gone away just got a little better then it was but now the shudder is coming back and its getting worse, I will never get another set of Kumho tyres - In saying that they do seem to handle and grip very well in any condition so I do feel safe with them on my ...car - but this shudder and noise is driving me insane - I also feel that the tyre is a little more ridged than anything I have had on in the past which also contributes to dash rattles and stuff.. I am about to take them off and put a new set of Bridgestone or something else on. These tyres have been on my car for now for about 13mths & the tyre wear is pretty good but I just cant stand the shudder so im just going to grin and bear the cost of another set, I hope the tyre dealer may give me a trade in on them ?? **Update** So I went and had the tyres changed to another manufacturers tyre, but the same vibration was felt through the car, so they changed to another cheaper set of tyres, and still the vibration was there - so they have ruled out the tyres that are causing the vibration (so I had my original Kumho's put back on). The noise that is coming from the tyres is caused by a negative camber in the rear suspension which in turn is causing uneven wear and feathering, and there is NO adjustment for that in the standard suspension format from Honda - I have been told that I can by aftermarket offset bushes or something and have them fitted but its expensive. Although I swore black & blue that the root cause of the vibration was the Kumho tyres, I have to eat my words "as above" these Kumho tyres didn't cause the vibration, and they are noisy because of a mechanical problem causing feathering - So I hope this helps when purchasing a new set of what ever tyres. I have change from 2 stars to 4 stars because I do feel safe with them - they do grip well in the wet, they wear very well & they and they didn't cause the problems I have been feeling. I still think that they are a harder tyre then others that I have had on there but maybe that helps with cornering.. Also must say thanks to Noels Pitstop on Progress Rd at Wacol - nothing was a problem, they bent over backwards to try and fix the problem and wouldn't charge me even when it turned out that the tyres were not the cause.

Excellent value for money!
Had these put on my MC Mondeo as a replacement for the OEM Continental tyres, I have gotten about 45000kms out of them and they are due for a change. Perhaps a bit soft, but happy to compromise on wear if that gives additional traction. They are not too noisy when the wheels are well aligned else they scream, as I found out upon visiting KTAS.
Had them installed at KTAS and have had a good run with them, perhaps my bad luck but two punctures in two tyres requiring replacements. Not sure if that is an issue with build quality or that its soft, or that its just bad luck.
Overall I would consider using them again.
Good performance tyre at a good price.
These run quiet on my Subaru. Great handling in the wet and dry too.
These only came out mid 2014, so reviews are sparse, but I thought I'd be the one to start!
Don't pay more than $145 each fitted.
