While the KU39s are not as aggressive a tyre as the old RE002s, they certainly still hold their own. The smaller sizing means the tyre no longer scrapes on the inner guard, the speedo is dead accurate and since the rolling diameter is smaller it feels less laboured particularly when climbing hills.

Tyres were 215/40/R18 in size. After running through my RE002s (45,000km and 3 years on them), I picked this size because it more closely matched the stock rolling diameter, and these KU39s presented in my opinion the best price/performance ratio.
The tyres were fitted and a front and rear wheel alignment was performed.
