Given 93% while driving a Holden Caprice 6ltr (245/40 R20) on a combination of roads for 3,500 spirited miles
Only ever had bridgstone potenza tyres on this car changed to ku19s because of the reviews last year, and I wasn't disappointed. 245 40 20s up front and potenzas at back, these out cornered the old $550 p/tyre potenzas. Tyre wear has also improved, putting ku19 275 35 20s on the back, will let you know how they go, cheers.

Are cheap winter tyres safe, or a false economy? Watch this video to find out!
Given 86% while driving a Audi a6 avant 3.0 tdi s line (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 6 spirited miles
Very good tyres. I had 2 KU19 on front and 2 Potenza on back. Very good grip, very good road feedback, low noise. I have a Quattro and it never understeered. Now i have winter tires Dunlop Winter Sport 3D. Sucks grip, big noise, hard steering. Very bad tires. Very happy with KU19/Potenza RE040 combination

Given 84% while driving a Holden SS V 6Ltr (245/40 R19 W) on mostly motorways for 10,000 average miles
Replaced my Potenza RE050A's with these KU19's. A great all-round choice, they grip as well as the Potenza's wet and dry and are quieter and have a slightly softer sidewall so offer a slightly more compliant ride. On smooth glassy roads perform as well as the Bridgestones, they definitely outperform the Potenzas on rough roads with spirited driving where the main fault of the RE050A's was a tendency to tram-line and skip, far less noticeable with the new KU19's. Plenty of feedback before giving way at the limit
