Given 24% while driving a (205/50 R17) on mostly country roads for 0 miles
On a wet surface, a car slides down the ice ... On a dry, fast-moving car the car just floats ... In the second word tires are bad!!!

The rubber is to hard. Works well in dry and wet, but no grip on ice and snow. Water risistent is okay but not the best. I will go premium next time.

Steering turn in very firm, quite good lateral grip and braking on wet. Low-pitch rumbling noise on highway.

excellent grip in deep slush and snow with good braking and quite at speed on dry roads but more noisy at low speed .
covered 5000 miles with no noticeable uneven tyre wear .
would i recommend these ? Yes I would
Previously had Nokian WR4 winter tyres and I would say that these are nearly as good

Total waste of money. Dry grip is good ( in fact quite good for a winter tyre), but for this we have summer tyres..The compound of this tyre is hard and this is very bad. Comfort is low (even compared to low budget tyres) and they are very, very noisy. Especially between 40 and 60km/h expect to hear a noise like a 10 year old winter tyre.
On wet, lateral grip is low, handling not so precise as you would like, dsc blink often. Braking in wet is ok.
I didn't test them yet in snow but it can't be good; the rabber is to hard to have a good adherence in snow.
Definitely I wont buy Kumho winter tyres again!!!

These tyres are dangerous in the wet. Also you must not have them on the back with better grip tyres on the front. You must have a full matching set only. "but" you get exceptionally good mileage from them. So as long as you drive carefully you will be OK. With tyres you cannot have both good mileage and good grip. These give good mileage but poor grip when wet

On the one hand I find these tyres to be very good on snowy,dry and wet winding roads. They have a very good grip on snowy hills too. But on the other hand, they are a little bit noisy on highways. About wear....can't tell yet......
