A few months ago we ran a competition to find motorists in the UK that would be willing to swap their current tyres for brand new Kumho Tyres and have them put them to the test with their daily drives. We crowned them our Kumho Tyre UK Tyre Testers.

Here are their stories below with their brand new Kumho Tyre tyres. Meet Daniel, Neal and Jake.

Le Sport KU39 – The tyres are fantastic! - Jake Kershaw

For my final thoughts; the tyres are fantastic, great grip in the dry and surprising in the wet given the price range of the tyre.

The very first impressions were they very noisy with little dry grip. This faded over the first few miles. The tires are now very quiet and grip brilliantly. The shoulder is nice and fi...
