Review 1 of 13

Price Paid:  $450.00 from Sullivan Tires

Year / Model Reviewed:
1997 Mountaineer

Strengths:
My 1st set of Kumho KR 21's lasted 17,000 miles and vibration starting at about 10,000 miles. 2nd set of KR 21's installed (dealer paid for 80% of cost) with immediate vibration as the SUV accelerates. I've had it. Removing these crappy tires and installing Michelins. Save yourself a lot of trouble and just pay the $100 difference and get a good tire. The Kumho's just don't cut it..

Weaknesses:
You will get 20% of the mileage advertised.

Summary:
The government should step in and investigate if these tires are safe.

Review 2 of 13

Price Paid:  $0.00 from Tire Store

Year / Model Reviewed:
1996 Buick Century

Strengths:
They were new

Weaknesses:
Unusable

Summary:
I have run Kumho tires on all my vehicles for years with no problems. These tires are 2 years old with 15,000 miles. I started having ride and vibration problems at 10,000 miles. Rotate and balance helps the problem for about a week (maybe 100 miles) then it starts again. This KR21 is the worst tire I have ever owned. I am replacing them with 15,000 miles of driving only. The belts are constantly changing inside the tires. Kumho will not return my calls about any kind of warranty. The tire store I bought them from will not honor the warranty either based on their experience with Kumho. I replace the tires with Hankooks and the car rides smooth. I installed the used Kumhos on my Chevy S-10 and you can barely stand to drive it from the vibration. Therefore, I will never buy this tire again and I will never buy any Kumho tire again because of lack of customer service.

Review 4 of 13

Price Paid:  $93.00 from Frank's Discount Tir

Year / Model Reviewed:
2004 Pilot

Strengths:
Great price and reduced noise. Handled better than the OEM.

Weaknesses:
Didn't get value of 80,000 miles off this tire. More like 40,000. Tolerable noise came back after 7,000. As I mentioned before handled better than manufactured tire but expected more based upon tire rating 640AB.

Summary:
The tire did perform much better than the Integrity but I'm willing to increase my budget slightly for a tire that will give me what I paid for: longevity and performance.
