Put KH18 on my 04 Outback. Fairly quiet (Quieter than OEM
Bridgestones) Snow and ice traction were excellent but wet traction
worse than Bridgestones. At 30k miles they are about 70% worn (rated
for 60k) and wet traction has degraded noticeably. If there is a
lot of snow this winter I may have to replace them. On an awd car you
can get away with more tire wise but on your taurus pay more and get a
name brand- dunlop are good and reasonable $$.
You get what you pay for when buying tires. Go get yourself a name
brand, i suggest goodyear, tire.
Any Kuhmo i've seen are loud tires and do not wear well, especially with
a midsize car.
I have had very bad luck with cheap tires, such as President, and Kuhmo,
I stick to all goodyear tires now on my three vehicles. End of the day,
the 25 bucks you save you will get back out of hte tire life, and tire wear.
