Kumho Solus KH17 Reviews

Given 74% (breakdown) while driving a Nissan Micra (155-70-13-)
Driving on mostly town for 5,000 easy going miles
Great tyre overall, but after year and a half there was small cracks all over the tyres. Will not buy again for that reason.

Bought kia rio 2012 1.4 turbo D brand new
just getting mine replaced on front wheels, done 18,000 miles
backs still look new though
i am keeping to the same tyres as were on the car as they are really good
they are just as good as 150 quid + tyres ive had in the past on other cars
they do sometimes get driven hard and they never complain
I can't honestly fault them at £62 each fitted

Given 36% (breakdown) while driving a Hyundai I10 (225-45-17-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 800 average miles
Replaced the Hankooks with Khumo K17's as they are the new OEM replacement tyres for the i10. At 65mph plus, the car started to drone as if a wheel bearing had gone. The chassis, bearings, steering and suspension were all checked and given a clean bill of health. As a last resort the tyres were changed - droning gone. No way to replace or exchange, so will be replaced with something else. Waste of £100, during the 800 miles use I did get before they were found to be U/S, I was not impressed.

GRRRRRRIIIIIPPPPP!! The grip on these tyres are phenomenal. Usually after pulling away in 1st I get wheelspin but after fitting these my car launches itself down the road. I would definitely recommend these tyres. Great for the price.

Very easy tyre to drive with, I don't understand the haters, considering every person that has had an issue with tyre wear drives a Hyundai, and everyone else is fine, maybe that's your issue? Buy a quality car... /rant

Dry grip is excellent and the tyres are rather quiet, very little squeel.
Comfortable ride.
Lower road noise than the tyres they replaced.

A lot of tyres feel good in dry conditions but are horrible in the wet, rest assured the KH17s are very decent. Even hitting one tyre on a wet patch under hard braking, the car remains stable and lockup was prevented (no ABS.)

One of the best budget tyres on the market, no question.

For the price you can't buy better. Having used them on 3 different cars now I can safely say they are great all round tyres which i would recommend to any one.

Im using 215/45/17.......replaced a pair in the front,my car is front wheel drive.....excellent dry grip and unpredicted suprise on the wet! Even michelin is not as good as these tyres in wet....wear rate is good....the only downturn is its noisy in city driving 40km/h to 80km/h...beyong that it transforms to one of the most silent tyres...why is this?

Replaced the set of Goodyear GT with these 1000 miles ago. From the first mile the road noise reducing was mind blowing. Very comfortable ride, good grip, everything you want from a tyre in city drive. Would byu them again.
