Does anyone have these?  I am considering a set for my 2011.  The ones I am looking at are V Rated but rated for 60k.

 

Before anyone asks, the Yokos are worn (Got them to the 60k plus) and Yokohama does not have a similar replacement unless you go to 245/ 55/18 or some oddball size.

Looks like I'll be the guinea pig.  I placed my order for these tires yesterday.  They should be in next week.  Mine are 245/60/18 105V which should do wonders versus heat but the surprise for me is that they have a 60K warranty (rare for a V-rated tire).

I now have 33,000 on the YK580's and will be surprised if I make it to 50,000.  Been doing a lot more city driving these days so I'm not to disappointed especially since we got them for $284.00!!!!  I remember being happy with a set of Kumho's I had on a Taurus but that was many moons ago.

The main appeal of the Kumho brand is price.  I've never run a set on an Edge, but I had them on an Explorer I bought.  The tires ended up being shot due to cupping that led to road noise at all speeds.  I ended up having to replace those long before the usable tread was really shot.  This from a tire that was mostly driven on the highway.

Mine are almost at the 60+K mark and need to be replaced ASAP especially since it's the rainy season down here.

This just hit slickdeals but I'm not seeing any great deals on 245/60/18s this time around.

Should have jumped on this deal but didn't wanna store them for a year:
