Opinions on the Kuhmo Solus kr21?
They may not have been rotated. It appears the Element (at least the AWD) likes to cup tires if not rotated correctly. That makes them very noisy.I have a new set that came on my Element and I find them very noisy between 35 and 40MPH. I have not checked the pressure yet. Perhaps that is the reason. I was really considering replacing the tires with the Nokian WR tires but since they are brand new I will live with the noise for now. I just bought the E two days ago. Tonight I checked the cabin air filter and it looks original (44,000 miles)having all kinds of bugs and junk in it so early in the morning I will pick up a new Wix filter and replace it myself.
Since the AWD is not engaged 99% of the time, so the AWDs run normally just like the 2wd, don't see how this is likely. Mine don't run any noisier than the [email protected] Goodyear OEMs, and the ride and handling is much better with the Kumho's.They may not have been rotated.

Just trying to avoid the 2WD reply-----didn't work.:roll:
