Kumho I`ZEN KW27 is a high performance winter tyre from our mid-price range and is designed for mid-class and executive cars with high engine power. It optimizes the tyre technology for its price point, and provides great value-for-money. It uses 3d siping to provide the best grip and traction on snow or ice. The sipes flex just before contact with the road is made, and they bite the underlying surface, and allow the tyre to lock onto the surface for a split-second. This helps the ride become more stable.

Kumho I`ZEN KW27 reduces low-rolling resistance by using a next-generation silica compound. This compound ensures that the tyre erodes more slowly, and maintains its spec and performance over the tyre’s lifespan. This improves the mileage from the tyre and even prevents excess emissions being released into the environment, making this an eco-friendly tyre.

Kumho I`ZEN KW27 uses an asymmetric tread profile which effectively removes excess snow and ice in the winter, and provides greater cornering stability on dry roads, by having a large contact area on the sides of the tyres.

Kumho I`ZEN KW27 is thus characterized not only by a favourable price, but also by fuel efficiency. The model is ideal for users who appreciate balanced performance at a reasonable price, and at the same time want to feel the pleasure of driving, regardless of weather conditions and type of surface.

Kumho is an independent tyre manufacturer originating from Korea since 1960. The company specializes in the production of mid-range tyres, which are characterized by the best ratio of price to product quality, optimum performance and safety of driving. Kumho also produces tyres for High Performance and Ultra High Performance, which often are used in various motorsports and racing.

    Opinion from outside the UK

    Kumho I'ZEN KW27 are not bad on dry, black tarmac but they are useless if the road is covered with just a bit of snow. Grip on snow or after-snow mud is almost none. I have to corner on 1st or 2nd gear because I am affraid of crashing. Going up-hill makes a lot of problems as well. Last year I got Fulda and they were much better than Kumho I'ZEN KW27.

    These tyres are actually rather good, quiet and rather grippy especially in the wet which is mostly what we are having at the minute. This is my second year with them and they performed well in the snow and frozen compacted slush. An excellent all round tyre that performs well. Read more Collapse

    Uses these tires of the Passat CC 2011 2.0TDI 170HP. I drove them all winter, especially moving to motorways. The problem, which usually appear at my tires are teething. At Kumho after driving 24 000 km still no sign that anything had happened to them also recommend this model. In the summer, was using RainSport2 235/40/18 Uniroyal. After about 10 000 km to wyząbkowały also wondered if anyone on this model is definitely not recommend at least when it comes to the Passat CC. Read more Collapse

    Opinion from outside the UK

    I bought the car on new tires. I thought that the manufacturer is a cheap chinese but after the first kilometers I was very surprised by the quality. Firstly, for the size 245 / 40R18 are very quiet. Although winter tires run very confident at speeds well over 200 km / h. Second, they do not wear out quickly. They have a nice pattern. Thirdly, they are universal - snow, slush, rain. Everything about. Disadvantage - and it large. No upstand protection. Read more Collapse
