I have had these tyres on all 4 wheels and iI have driven over 20,000 miles and they have plenty of miles left on them, the only problem I had was that my tracking was out and this has left one tyre a bit low on the shoulder but I still have well over 1,000 miles left easily, I reckon that the mactrac kh35 is not a budget it is just a name that someone has stuck on the tyre, it gives great comfortable good gripping in wet/dry and snow and great wear, best tyre I ever bought and I will be getting them on any car I buy as long as they are still being made. these reviews that show extremely bad or poor points are probably placed by some young boy racers that like to drive around corners and roundabouts at 40 miles an hour just to hear their tyres squeal, so ignore all the stupid lousy bad reviews, I am just an ordinary driver and I drive the way that I should drive "IN A SENSIBLE MANNER" so if you nwant a tyre that is good value for money, gives good wet/dry/snow gripping, great mileage, comfort, handling get the marshall mactrac kh35 and I am sure you will agree with me. THIS IS A REAL REVIEW FROM A REAL PROPER DRIVER
Good dry grip, ok wet grip if driven sensibly. Lasted 4 years and driven for about 23000 miles. Just taken off the car as failed MOT as had splits in inner tyre wall. Still had 6mm of tread remaining so shocked at MOT fail, so if you have them do check the inner wall regularly as this is the weak area. These tyres have a relatively hard tyre compound hence the tread lasting for many miles but at the expense of wet grip. My Michelin PS3 tyres were more expensive but awesome grip and good wear rate provided the car's geometry is in good nick and set up properly. If you drive sedately and sensibly and can get these at a good price then I would recommend but if you push your car get Michelin.
I drive a mondeo titanium x 140 as an average motorist on a variety of roads,mainly "A" roads to and from work with a bit of motorway driving when going on holiday. These tyres were a second choice as my dealer could not get Khumho extas in time,i was glad that he couldn't! these tyres definatly out perform the extas (i wasnt disapointed with the extas,still a good tyre!). These tyres have only done 13000 miles so far and there is lots of wear still left!! They have seen a lot of wet weather driving this winter and the grip has been very good,they havn't broken away at any point and aquaplaning has only happened in the most torrential of conditions! As for the dry, i can only say execelent!! I would say that they would grip far beyond what an average joe could push them.The comfort was a supprise too,i expected the ride to be a little firm being a "40" profile but they have performed well with feedback being good! Will definatly buy again and i would certainly recommend them.
