Wonderful Tyre in all aspects 215/60R16
Recently had a set of 4 Kumho HS51’s (215/60R16) fitted to my 2005 WL Holden Statesman. I had been running Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus and these Kumhos feel better in every way. I have already experienced Nearly 40 degree days with them & also pouring rain! They handle extremely well in the Dry and Wet! I live in the Adelaide Hills so good Tyres are essential. Road noise is non existent, Braking power is fantastic too. Highly recommend these Tyres, will be buying them again for sure.
Kumho Solus HS51 connects car to road with complete confidence
Since having my Subaru Forester fitted with 4 new KUMHO SOLUS HS51’s, I have experienced how phenomenal they handle in both extreme weather conditions from a 35 degree summers day to week long torrential rain soaked roads which also at times roads under at least 5 inches of water where not once did I experience aqua planing or loss of traction. Words cannot explain how impressed I am with the all weather capabilities of the HS51’s nor have I ever experienced such a sure footed tyre.
My fuel economy has improved substantially since they’ve be...
Got at great price via kmart tyres price matched tyresales. Good in wet and dry and quiet.
Early days but so far seem solid and happy to reccomend. Too early to tell on longevity.
Kmart were good also. Other kumhos i have had have been good also. Worth a try if the price is right.
Excellent tyre KUMHO Solus HS51 as good as Michelin Pilot SuperSports without the 'Price'-y tag
Excellent tyre as good as Michelin PILOT SuperSports without the 'Price'-y tag. need to save and still have a smile on your face in regards to Tyres on your ride, i have had Pirelli and Michelins on my small sportscombi and having only front wheel drive good tyres are a must have, just fitted KUMHO Solus HS51, 215/50 R17 95W to my SAAB 9-3 SportCombi and it drives so smooth and quite and corners like on rails, breaking in both wet and loose surface is true stopping in a phrase 'Love to drive' on these tyres they are super safe .
I find these tyres very low on road noise with exceptional wet weather grip... I thoroughly recommend them to anyone especially anyone wanting grip security in the wet. Especially when family safety is the main concern. Only fault I find is a soft side wall. I am now approaching 60,000km and still have legal tread.
Good value. 195/50 r15 on a vw up
Got 4 fitted and balance at bob Jane for $95 each for 195/50 r15, I think these tyres are excellent value for money and defiantly punches above its price. Will buy again
+ good grip, good every day tyre, don't squeal much when pushed, I've done ~50,000km, 70% highway 30% spirited driving in the city with a lot of roundabout and still have 30% tread left
Note: does not have a rim Gard, no comment on road nose other then its not loud it enough to anoy me.
- not much at this price
Very quiet and responsive tyre.
I had this tyre for about 1.5 years and done 20000km. It's now still a very very quiet,capable and responsive tyre. Previously was Michelin PS3. Grip may be slightly lower compared to my previous Michelin PS3 but its much better compared to other tyres I have used. Quite surprising for me with the comfort and very low noise level of HS51 as this tyre decent stiffness sidewalls still offers good cornering stability. The only tyre that I have used before which is just slightly quieter than kumho HS51 is Michelin Primacy-3ST. Only downside(probabl...y to some people out there) that I experienced is that due to the softer (even after 20000km) rubber compound, it tends to wear off earlier (my car alignment is in good condition) but honestly this is not a major issue for me as I prefer to utilize(consumed) all the tyres' rubber thread before the tyre expiry date than to have plenty of unused leftover thread at the end of tyre expiry and throw away.
Noticeably quieter and grippy
Bought these tyres about 4 months ago from kmart tyre and auto for my fiesta zetec. These tyres are pretty damn good. Similar to my old xr5 tyres, continental sport contact 2's. But the kumho is a lot quieter and a bit less grippy in the corners. Nice wide grooves should eliminate water planing in winter which is an issue for my car due to its size.
Very good competent tyre Kumho builds excellent tyres
Very good competent tyre Nice and quiet, I replaced my previous Kumho tyres model KU27, they were great performers with nice grip wet or dry and really quiet extremely long life, we did 127000kms on one set. I tried to get them again but they were obsolete, but these HS51 tyres were their replacement. Kumho builds excellent tyres a real quality brand so I wouldn't consider anything else. We have had these HS51 tyres on for only a few thousand Km's but they are nice and quiet with great grip, time will tell if they wear as well as the KU27's.
