perfectly normal for both KU31 and 36.. if you want a quieter kumho get the KU39, but then the performance factor goes out the window

They are pretty noisy but mainly at low speeds in my experience. Much preferred Adrenalines...

nice one, i fitted a set of 04 WRX wheels to my bug eye with KU36's on a few days ago...... aftr the first time i drove it i had it jacked up again as soon as i got home as i thought the wheels where rubbing or something! glad i dont use the car everyday as these tyres would drive me mad, nice and sticky though )

My exhaust drowns out any road noise from them but seriously I dont find them noisy at all.

Mine drone but then everything about my car is noisy so....meh.

For grip vs price they are awesome and I plan on fitting another set of 235/40/18's (my car is 90% daily driven with a bit of track work) when the current set need replacing.

So far done 20,000kms on mine and wear-wise they dont look too bad at all. This is with multiple perth-wrx cruises, skidpans & tuning arvo's @ RAC over the last year.

Though I do drive like a granny everywhere but the track (the odd-squirt here and there occasionally).

What sort of % do you reckon remaining after 20k? Might give these a bash next.... either these or Hankook RS2....
