The Solus KH25 (so’lus) is Kumho’s Grand Touring All-Season tire developed for the drivers of sporty coupes and touring sedans. Solus KH25 tires are designed to blend noise comfort, ride comfort and balanced all-season performance with dry, wet and wintertime traction, even in light snow.
Solus KH25 tires mold a silica-enhanced all-season tread compound into a symmetric tread design that features full-depth circumferential grooves and variable-pitch lateral grooves to enhance hydroplaning resistance and snow traction while reducing noise. The tire’s internal structure features twin steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped nylon to promote stability and high-speed durability while polyester body plies provide casing strength and a smooth ride.

Rough ride, loud, quickly wearing, barely acceptable on snow, down right frightening on ice. Definitely not recommended if you live anywhere that gets snow or ice, these tires are really quite terrible in the snow. I had a drive to work where the road was almost entirely iced over, and the tires made that drive extremely difficult to maintain control. The backend of the car saw no traction, and you could feel that at the steering wheel. These are noisy and wear quickly. Highway driving is pretty harsh. In 12,000 miles, I’ve lost 3/32″ on two of the tires, both of which are at opposite sides and ends of the vehicle; tires are regularly rotated. I’m not doing burnouts folks, just driving back and forth to work!Breakdown – Scale: Terrible, OK, Good, Great/Excellent.Snow/Ice: Terrible. DO NOT BUY if you will be driving in an area prone to these conditions.Rain/Wet: OK. Definitely not the best and not all that confidence inspiring, but good enough. Accelerating in the wet quickly gets the wheels spinning.Dry: Good. Noisy, but otherwise good. Highway: OK. Would be passable if you needed tires right now, but they are noisy and ride is harsh over bumps.Summary: Relatively crappy OEM tires that, sure, they’ll get the job done, but are not comfortable and are relatively useless in the snow and ice.
I am the second owner of this 2013 Dart. It had 44k miles on the tires when I purchased the car. It now has 110,700+ miles before the wear reached the tread wear marks. The DOT labels are 11/14. Dry traction is good to excellent even with very little tread. The wet traction leaves a lot to be desired.
I bought my 2013 Dart new and I have found these tires to be better than the other brands I have owned. My Dart has the turbo charged engine and from time to time I punish my tires and have found them to be very durable and responsive in all types of weather conditions. Considering that these are the factory original tires,I never expected to get much over 25,000 or 30,000 miles out of them,so I am impressed with the fact that I’m at 52,000 miles and and just getting to the point in which I am thinking of replacing them,but I still have tread left and could probably go another 2,000 or 3,000 miles. I highly recommend these tires!
These tires are the original set on my 2014 Dodge Dart SXT. Im the 2nd owner of the vehicle and I really wished I had pushed for a tire swap before purchasing it. On rainy days even at the lightest bit of acceleration you will peel out. On snowy days you’re SOL and better hope no one stops in front of you and you get all green lights. I use snow tires in the winter but my mom mistakenly bought these for her Pontiac G6. She completely regrets purchasing them as well. She says they are the worst tires she’s ever had in her 40+ years of driving. Did I also forget to mentiom how loud they are? If you want to save money, purchase a used tire just as long as they’re any brand but these. Buyer beware.
Tires had 75,000 miles warranty. Bald at 40,000 and nobody has anything to say or do about warranty. I’d be scared to stand behind there tires too. Without grip the rolling car wouldn’t stop and kill you.
These tires were the original equipment on my Hyundai Sonata Limited. Had no problems or issues with them the whole time the were on my car. Since they were original equipment I figured I’d be luck to get 40,000 to 50,000 miles out of them. Was happily surprised when they went all the way to 82,000 miles before needing to be replaced. Had no noise, vibration or wear issues, and never even had the tires balanced in the 3 1/2 years they were on the car. I drive in Southern California, and commute to work on the freeway approx. 27 miles each way every day. Usually my commuting speeds are between 67-75 mph, but may be faster at times. I also take long road trips around the Southwest, to Arizona and Las Vegas NV, etc., and do speeds of 80-85-90mph for regular time periods. Have driven cross country to Buffalo NY and Baltimore MD and Wash D.C. as well.. also do my share of city/town driving in this car, but the majority of miles is Highway travel.I try to keep the air pressure at 32-35psi, and rotate the tires myself approx. every 7000 miles. Really didn’t do any winter/snow driving. And being in SoCal, there was just occasional rain or wet weather mileage, but they still seemed to perform well.When it came time to replace these tires I wanted to get another set of these, but found there wasn’t any mileage/wear rating listed for them, and they were priced at $105 apiece at my tire dealer. But having been impressed with these Kumho tires I decided to stick with the brand, and bought a set of Kumho Solus TA31’s for my car. I found they had good ratings from other folks online, are rated at 60,000 miles, and were only $85 apiece. So I saved $20 per tire, and I’ve been very happy with them so far. I used to buy Michellin’s at Costco, but a set of 60,000 mile Michellin’s for my car would’ve cost almost $900 at Costco. I got my set of Kumho’s installed for about half of that. Again, very happy with the Kumho’s and that deal.
