    Kumho KH-17 Tyres

    I'm considering 4 Kumho KH-17 tyres for my astra - anyone had experience of this make or particular tyre ?
    all reviews point to it being a good buy - but thought i would ask on here as well

    blackcircles say about £50/£55 each

    i run the kumho brand, ecsta sports on my coupe (215/40/17) and i know not everyone likes em, but i personally think that kumho's for the money are very good, mine have bags of grip, wet and dry and in the recent snowy weather did extremely well

    I used the the Ecsta sports a few times in the past (KU31). Never had a problem with them, worth the money. Can't comment on the KH-17's though

    I run these at 215 35 19 and find the side walls dont last as long as the tread. But as always on these forums you only get personal veiws.

    I liked mine when I first got them but they didn't last long at all!!

    Running falkans this time at not a hell of alot more cost but have done a kick in the arse off double the miles!

    cheers guys - other reviews i've read say the kh-17 have similar grips in both wet and dry - also had a look at the falkens tyres as well... think i've seen a few running them, but reviews not so good
    i guess you never know until you try really, everyone drives different, some harder on tyres than others under braking and cornering - not quiet worked out which i am yet - though i reckon its probably harder !
