Kumho Tires

    Established in 1960 in South Korea, Kumho is in the top ten tire manufacturers in the world, and their products are fitted as original equipment on Hyundai, Kia, Mitsubishi, and Smart Car models. In addition to offering state-of-the-art passenger vehicle tires, Kumho specializes in race track, high-performance, and heavy truck applications (Kumhos are fitted as OEM equipment on Mercedes-Benz commercial trucks and Sprinter vans.) We offer a wide variety of Kumhos created for all climates, vehicles, and driving needs.

    Kumho won the Tire Manufacturing & Design Innovation of the Year Award at the Tire Technology Expo for perfecting a process of laser-cutting tire tread patterns, which has allowed their engineers to improve every style of their tires. This refined laser etching system makes possible innovative dual-layered tread patterns that provide more effective grip and noise reduction and permits sidewall designs to be shaped more aerodynamically for lower rolling resistance.

    If you need tires for ultra-high performance, Kumho has a wide selection of summer performance tires, pure track racing tires, and all-weather tires designed to enhance the performance of any sport sedan, GT coupe, or compact. And if you need tires for your Ford Super Duty F-450, heavy truck, or van, Kumho offers over a dozen choices in their impressive line-up of heavy commercial radial tires. Their selection lets you further choose tires customized for paved highway driving, poor roads, or no-pavement conditions. Higher- and lower-profile sidewall choices with or without wide bases are available as well.


    CARiD's web site has been set up to automatically guide you in the tire buying process for your vehicle whether you're looking for same-size replacement tires or considering upgrading tires and rims to a larger size. To find Kumho tires available for your specific vehicle, select your make, model, and year. You'll notice a range of sizes appear on the left (anywhere from 13 inches to 26 inches in diameter for example). When you're ready, choose your current size or browse from other diameter sizes that will typically fit on your vehicle. Next, you have the option of narrowing down your search further with preferences of all-season, summer, or winter tread designs. Then, you can choose between tires with tread designs optimized for types of driving: performance, all-terrain, or economy.

    Understanding Tires

    There is a lot of information on the sidewall of a tire. Typically, you'll find UTQG ratings for treadwear, traction and temperature, the size of the tire, the load rating index number with a speed rating index, the construction type (bias or radial), the D.O.T. compliance code, and construction details. On some tires used as original equipment, you may also find a marking that indicates its OE status.

    These are good tires. I have almost 50,000 miles on them and still have tread. They have got noisier as they got older, but they are MT's. I'm really happy with them. Thanks, CARiD.

    I have them and I like them a lot. Very sticky, can get a 1.9 60' with them. Good wet traction too. Can't speak for wear only 4000 miles on them but seems to be holding up well.

    I have had these tires for the last year and 20,000 miles. They are W rated and ride rougher than the stock tires. They are better in the rain, about the same in dry. However, you must rotate these tires frequently.

    I bought a set this spring for my 06, and I am totally happy with them. They ride better than the OEM tires, and they are a bit quieter. I did quite a bit of research before buying them, and most people who have them seem very happy, and I found no big complaints.

    Have over 25000 on mine so far, great tire... Perform awesome offroad and onroad. They are very sticky on the rocks and as everyone else has said, clean out great in the mud... My two front ones started cupping but that was 15k in without any rotations so I blame myself, not the tire...

    I purchased some Vision rims and some Kumho tires. People at CARiD are great, I recommend them highly.
