Anyone heard of Kumho tires?

Just picked up a set of Cad chrome wheels. They came with a set of near-new Kumho 732 Touring Plus tires (215/60R16 M+S), which I've never heard of. Was planning on replacing them, but decided to use 'em temporarily on the latest '90 convertible acquisition. What a difference! Fantastic ride, great handling. Marked improvement over the original Goodyears. Stamped "Made in Korea." Treadwear 460, Traction A, Temperature B. Anyone have any experience with this brand? (EDSO: know you like Yokohamas, but what's with Kumho? Even the name is weird.)<P>Jerry

Kuhmos are a big tire name in the import racing scene. Make great tires just dont make a lot of sizes. You get lucking to find one to fit your car, be glad and keep buying them, if you can find em.

Asked my tire dealer (independent) friend about Kumho tires. He says he is selling quite a few of them and has had no problems with them, a quality tire. He looks for them to be a main line tire in a few years. Kumho is making a name for themselves by putting them on the race circuit and by doing much advertising. Prices are reasonable like prices on everything from Korea until they establish themselves in the world's market. Look at the Korean autos.

I have a set of offroad Kumhos on my Jeep Grand Cherokee.<P>Excellent tire, they were my replacement for a set of recalled Firestones (the dealer was out of the proper replacement).
