these tyres come as stock for kia forte when i got my car end sept'11. mine is the 2.0, so not sure whether the 1.6 has these as stock as well. earlier the stock forte were given silverstone m5.

after driving on them for a week, i changed the tyres. this is just my feedback ya. the road grip (dry and wet) is not that great and it is quite noisy and not that comfortable too. i can feel the car like floating when going on highway speed, both in the wet and dry. overall, for the price they are selling (if i am not mistaken around rm280 for 215/45/R17), it should be consider ok lor. i would say individual preference.

Yup, just found out that the Kia Forte 2.0 was having them as OE tyres since mid year. They only launch now because now have 11 sizes. The Forte 1.6 I think is with 16".

This is what I found from Kia Forte club forum....
Comparison with stock Kumho tyre
Dry grip: not much different
Wet Grip: significantly better!
Silent: slightly better
Comfort: not much different

No wonder bro. ymchong change his tyres after one week...... smile_wink.gif

N8000 is UHP with AA Traction and receive many good reviews
