Kumho Tire Treadlife?

While at the dealer for the crank sensor problem, service tech told me the right front tire tread is past being legal. These are the original stock Kumho tires for a 2011 GLS (not sure of model or size), with only 23,525 miles.

Seems kinda soon for highway mileage for only ONE side to wear so much. Tech said it is even-wear across the tire and not just on inner or outer tread.

How long is the Kumho expected treadwear warranty?

How many miles have Sonata drivers here gotten out of the original Kumho tires?

I replaced my 215-55-17 KH25's at 30,000 miles. They were probably good for another 5,000 legal miles.

I have 20,000 miles on mine and they have alot of meat left on them. I can't wait for them to wear out. I want rid of them. They're awful.

2011 Sonata GLS. Hopefully it will last.

22,000 miles on my Kumhos, probably good for another 10,000-15,000 miles. I rotate them every 7,500 miles.

Pretty crappy. I had 60K on my Michelins that came standard on my 2006 Sonata when I traded it in for a 2012. It will make me sick if these tires don't last 25K.

Seems the service tech didn't report it all. BOTH front tires are well worn. Right side is on the wear-bars, left side is almost on the wear-bars. More worn in the middle of the tread, which would indicate over inflation.

I was told by several local tire stores that the only OEM tire that comes with a mileage warranty is Michelin. All other brands that come from the factory just have a warranty against defects.

No treadwear warranty! I just changed mine at 37K, could have stretched it out to 39-40K, maybe! The Kumhos have no treadwear warranty. They were very noisy.
Switched to Hankook Optimos. Do your research! These are one of the best rated tires. Came out to $409 installed at Pep Boys (Buy 3 get 1 free). Very smooth and very quiet ride.
AND 100,000 mile warranty!

I have the Optimo's on my 2.0T - very very good tire; I was impressed... and I generally run Continental's (which wil lbe on my Sorento come Spring).

I have heard, not sure of how accurate it is, that the stock tires on new vehicles are not manufactured to last as long as a tire you purchase in a store... the car manufacturers get deals with the tire companies banking that folks will replace the stocks with the same brand..


Don't sweat the petty things, and don't pet the sweaty things.
