In Reply to: Kumho 712 Tires, are they worth saving $100/ posted by 929golfer on September 16, 2001 at 22:18:14:

The Kumhos are a good tire and I will emphasize good because they are not great. They have good dry road traction, they have really good wet weather traction and they make the car ride a lot smoother. This smoother ride comes at the cost of losing some communication with the road. In a Buick that is fine but in the M3 I think it is somewhat counter productive.

I anticipate that the tires will wear for a long time. I have over 3.5k miles on the tires already and the little mold markers are still on the tires.

The dry traction is where you will really notice the good performance of these tires. Now I keep saying good because they are good but they are not great or excellent like the MXXX's or SO-2's or something along those lines. If you are looking for high performance tire this is probably not it. If you are looking for a tire that performs admirably in all areas but excels at none and is very affordable, well this may be the tire for you.

Hi all,

Has anyone have any experience with these tires? I'm looking to replace my MXX3. Don't know if buying Pilot, S0-3 would be worth the extra $100/tire. Any Opions?
