Kumho KR21s

Recommended Posts

Anybody tried this tire? A co worker of mine wants them for his Cobalt? They look like a good tire, and he can get them for 50 bucks each.

Yay or Nay?

The Solus KR21 is an excellent tire. There is a newer model out called the KR22 and it is low rolling resistance, has a higher treadwear rating, and still costs the same as the KR21. Neither, however, is available in H or higher speed ratings. A Kumho tire that is also excellent and offers higher speed ratings for the same money is the Ecsta LX Platinum. If I were to ever purchase new tires for any of my vehicles (excepting the Durango) it would be the Ecsta LX Platinum. But seeing as I'm a used tire kinda guy...

Go read the reviews and survey results for all three on TireRack. Then compare that to the $100-$150 tires in the same sizes from the other tire companies. The name brand isn't worth the premium price to me.
