Just found this forum a few days ago and have been in lurk mode until now. I drive an 02' Rio bought new in 03' with around 30k on it now. Is it just my bad luck or are the OE Kumho tires trash? Cheers-Marty

I run 17's on my '02 rio. Originally I had Nankang brand tires (PUKE) on the new wheels. They were on the wires after 15k miles! I bought a set of Kumho Ecsta 711's and they have been on for 20k miles and still haven't hit the wear bars. So compared to the Nankangs, the Kumhos are great.

BTW, I only run the steel wheels during the winter with winter treads...

my stock kumho's lasted exactly 30,000 kms. Yokohama Avid T4's replaced them and I absolutely love them. great traction, handling, feel and still look new after 3 years.
