Top Kenda KOMET PLUS KR23 Review

Given 71% while driving a Volkswagen Tiguan (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 60,000 average miles
I mostly used on highway and got it over 90,000km and still can use at least another 15,000km before I change to Toyo PROXES CF2. City drive is okay but on highway especially wet road condition can feel it float on water rather than cut through. The tire feel is hard and not comfort.
Overall if you are city drive and not a racer, don't see another wrong with it but if you can spend a bit more for a more comfortable and safety tire. Why not then..

Given 53% while driving a Mitsubishi Mirage Hb Gls 2015 (165/65 R14 H) on a combination of roads for 0 average miles
I purchased new tyres, Tuesday mechanic put 4 new tyres on my car, 5 days later driving to Bathurst I only got 26km out of town and left rear tyre went whoosh whoosh, I slowed down slowly from 100km/h and lost control of the car. Managed to pull over and stop. Tyre ripped badly. Was planning on heading to family tomorrow which is 4 hour drive not sure if I will make it before Christmas.

Given 54% while driving a Fiat Uno Hatchback (146) (155/70 R13 T) on mostly country roads for 25,000 average miles
Average in dry conditions, screeches in corners even at low speed. Absolutely no grip on wet roads, even applying the brakes slowly makes the front lock, I lost grip while going through a roundabout at 10km/h. If you try to push the car you start losing grip in the corners even in 40C heat, and I am driving a 800kg 57hp city car, I wouldn't recommend these tires even to my worst enemy, awful experience, I recommend to avoid them for the novice drivers, these will get you in a crash. Only good thing about them is the wear and the price.

Given 32% while driving a Ford c max (225/55 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 6,000 average miles
Fitted new in Sept 2019 to a 2009 ford cmax. Im now replacing them next week for a set of Michelin CrossClimate + 205/55R16 91H. Brought these Kenda as an all-weather tyre with apparent mud+snow rating. One line to sum these up: They are dangerous ditch finders. Going around roundabouts in the rain? = Expect to be going sideways with no grip to regain traction... hair-raising! Stopping normally from 40mph+? = Extend your stopping line by about 4/6 meters more to account for poor stopping ability. Good luck to those fitting these.. Shocking to say the least.

recommended for normal usage.

Given 51% while driving a Hyundai I10 (165/60 R14 H) on mostly motorways for 6,000 average miles
Four new tyres were needed at the wrong time, due to premature perishing of Kumho Solus KH17 after two years. Kenda Komets were reluctantly fitted and are abysmal. Grip is OK, but the amount of heat generated after a long run is worrying. Fuel economy has dipped by 4mpg at motorway speeds and, during hard cornering, it feels as though the tyres will come off their rims. This is despite inflating by 3psi over the recommended maximum. The tyres are marked M+S and do seem passable in the winter. The I10 has always performed decently in the snow. I'll switch to a decent brand soon. At 15,000 miles a year, the increase in economy will probably pay a decent chunk of tyres' cost.
