Hyundai Santa Fe Tyre Review Highlights
Fitted the tyres to our Hyundai Santa Fe Highlander when the original Hankook tyres needed replacing. This will be the third time I have fitted Continentals when available and they don't disappoint. Steering, braking, feel and comfort are all superior to the others I have owned, and I couldn't see myself buying any other brand regardless of price.
Not very tough as I quickly got a puncture when I drove over a piece of broken plate that I thought was paper. As I drive out of our street to join the main road there is a slight incline, but in winter weather the tyres do not grip the road and I constantly slide/skid on to the main road and have had many near misses
Sorry I won't comment on wear because they won't get the chance to wear. I bought my hyundai santa fe with these fitted & they are terrible. My wife (Who drives this car) compained about the rear of the car sliding on bends 4 or 5 times. I drove the car then & on a 90° bend going very slow & road slightly damp at worst the back slid out. It felt like it was on ice, thankfully it has auto 4wd. Never would I recommend these tyres.
Medium up range tyre but abit low wear on SUV labelled, 23000km almost their limit. Abit costly at my area, 200sgd for 225/60R18. Not willing to buy again.

Fitted these on my family SUV as, with a drive to a ski holiday booked, I wanted better winter performance than the stock summer road tyre. Nothing more embarrassing than being the driver of a 4x4 but being stuck in bad weather!.
The Quatrac is quiet and retains excellent feel through the corners. They don’t match the old Hankook Ventus Prime for emergency dry braking but there is plenty of grip even on a spirited drive. In the cold and wet they really start to excel. The car always has plenty of grip, there’s no spin when pulling away quickly. Loads of grip in the corners and braking is excellent. The ride is great too.
I needed winter certified tyres for 2 trips to the Alps for skiing. The Quatracs are compliant with European winter tyre regulations. In severe snow conditions they are better than budget winter tyres. The car retained amazing levels of grip in acceleration, steering and braking. Our chalet was up a hill away from the main road and had a very steep drive. I was the only vehicle in our group that didn’t need snow chains to ascend the hill. Fresh powder, wet snow, compacted snow and ice, nothing stopped the Quatracs gripping. When the snow melted and became deep slush the car still had loads of traction. Back home we experienced freezing rain after a night of snow and the local roads became an ice rink. Only then did the traction control and ABS braking intervene, yet still I was able to get home safely.
Many will tell you all season tyres are a compromise. These out perform most winter tyres in mild winter conditions and match them in severe snow, ice and slush. In warm dry summer drives they match summer tyres too. You are not aware that your tyres aren’t a summer road tyre. In cool and wet conditions they excel. Where’s the compromise? They are decent in light off road driving too!
Writing about the Nokian zLine

I used these Z-line tyres in my 2007 Santa Fe. Handling and grip were fine, wear was terrible though, worse than any tyre I have had before. After 18000km (just over 11000 miles) I had to replace them! Never a Nokian Z-line again for me!
Writing about the Kumho Solus KL21

Kumho Solus 21 tyres fitted by registered Hyundai service agent on 26/10/16.Passed W.O.F February 2017 and first rotation and alignment in April '17 but by September 8/17 tyres were completely rooted and had to be replaced(grand total of 18000km)travelled 95% of total km's on sealed roads by 73yr old driver.Hyundai service agent who fitted tyres initially will not do anything for owner because tyres not able to be inspected by supplier.Circumstances leading to inability to inspect came about because car was unsafe to drive at second rotation and alignment in September when problem of separation was discovered.One month before discovery of conditon of tyres was made mechanic of 35yrs experience
made comment about tyres felt off round.At this stage nothing was noticeable to 73r old driver but emphasises how rapid deterioration actually was.Very unsatisfactory state of affairs and one further comment to make.Writer always bought Kumho tyres for both ELF and Titan trucks and would swear to them but car tyres NEVER.
I have driven the car more than 40.000 kilometers, they have worned OK but, I havent drive the car that frequently, and tyres got firmer and very stiff (solid). Ihad to change them for a better grip due to their loss of grip capabilities.
Although I havent been driving the car for long with these tyres, I believe they will last long enough.
