I have had less than admirable service from Kumho 857's on my TT. In last two years, separation of tread on two and one had a huge bubble on sidewall of tire. No overload or aging, just poor quality tires made in Vietnam! Only reason I purchased was for the 8 ply rating for 14" tires. Purchased at Discount Tire and must be shipped to store from Rancho Cucamonga, California. Just completed trip and had tread separation first 200 miles. Fortunately had time to layover in East Texas on departure date and ordered tires (2) through Discount Tire. Kumho had four in stock and I bought two! Not a reliable supply!
