    Hey just a word about tires! This 2013 pure came with Kumho tires! The rears wore out @ 25000 miles so replaced them with a new set of replacement Kumho tire in the same stock size!
    I was returning to VA from FLA & one of the original equipment front Kumho tires slipped a belt 80 miles from Florence SC! What a bummer! I have to note that these fronts had 30000 miles on them! The Continentals that were on my 09 pure lasted for 65000 miles with no problems! KUMHOS SUCK!! I have since replaced them with a new player in the tire game! Achilles ATK-K economists! I changed the sizes front & rear! I put 165/55-15 up front & 185/50-15 in rear! WOW what a difference in ride & handling!! The power steering on this before was nervous & jittery but now it has slowed the steering & is more of a pleasure to drive!! I wonder how it would handle with a set of rear rims up front shod with 195/45-15 tires? I'll keep you posted on the life of these Achillies tires from Indonesia!!
