I bought this tire according to USA customer's review on tirerack. They show great reviews with this tire, so I decided to try it. Also it was classified as 'ultra premium tire' on Kumho tire website, and I feel like $117 is bargain for premium class.
I received tires late, because TA71 is new model and 1010 tires doesn't have in stock.
Right after changing the tires, I could feel the difference. Tire noise are gone and extremely comfortable. cornering is great and feels safer now.
I only tried 3 weeks, so I can't tell about treadwear.
So far so good!
