    Hi peeples
    I need new tyres on my Ford rather soon...wondering if anyone has used Kumho tyres and have been happy with them? A mechanic suggested them to me a while ago. Not sure but they may not be cheap tyres but you get what you pay for and if this is the case, then I am happy to get them!
    cheers

    Burns rubber!

    Bender 3 years ago I put a set of toyo tyres and they still have a year left in them this is on my Fairmont.
    Now I'm not a slow driver especially on winding roads , a set of boots is usaly only good on my car for 2 years at best and the thing I like the best about them is they still have wet grip just about every tyre I have had drops of in wet grip as the rubber hardens up about 12 to 14 months regardless of tread depth ......
    They are a high silica compound .

    Jim, I've had Kumho tyres on a couple of different 4wd's and couldn't fault them. They are not cheap tyres, but neither are they expensive. Treat them right, ie correct pressures, periodic rotation, balance and wheel alignment and they will serve you well.

    A lot of vehicle owners elect to go with cheapies and they don't last as long as better quality tyres and in my opinion, it is a false economy to buy something cheap that will need replacing long before the higher priced better quality gear - a bit like fishing gear when you think about it.

    Boss has Khumos on her Ford focus hachback. They seem to be pretty good. A bit road noisy but that's likely the car's fault as well.
    My V8 Jeep has Bridgestones and with most of them while towing 2 1/2 tonnes of 20' caravan plus about half a tonne in the Jeep, they have clocked up 80K to date and still going strong. Pretty good value I think. Have forgotten about the prices etc.
