Zetum Tyres/Tires

I see there is a great Tyre thread on here about tyre's in general but I'm wanting to get some info about Zetum Tyres specifically - they look to be a good middle of the road tyre which is commisioned in Australia and made by Kumo - but there is very little information on the web about them (good or bad)

http://www.bobjane.com.au/Tyres/Zetum

If they were crap I'd expect to see a lot of comments slagging them - but I dont so does anyone have any personal experience with these tyres?

The best info I've found so far is by ringing up all the shops here in Auckland that sell them and then asking them to tell me about 3 brands they have there and which they like the best - usually the do end up talking about Zetum and as yet there has been no negative feedback and no customer returns (apparently) BUT they're all trying to sell tyres so do you believe what they say?

I've also found a couple of places online but for me thats not enough info - one is a quick throw away comment and the other is actually a good professional looking review but its the only one I've found!!

what tyres do u suggest?
A mate has been running tyres called Zetum Sport on his XR6, at first I thought he had lost the plot, but... they’re pretty good.
Tyre wear seems good so far (drives rural) and they do all the nice things well in all the bad conditions. They’re made by Kumho (KU37?) and he got them at Bob Jane.

PASMAG | PERFORMANCE AUTO AND SOUND - Ultra High Performance Tire Test 2010 - PART II

Currently I'm looking at purchasing 4 for $100 each - which is half the price of the other "semi-performance" tyres I'm looking at and yet the Zetums claim similar performance and longevity????
(If it sounds too good to be true.........check out the facts)

P.S - like most threads people like to suggest other brands but please don't in this thread - its purely about Zetum. I know there are other great tyres out there and I could list a few of my Favorites as well but that wont tell me what the Zetum is like - thanks.... : )

A hard to follow thread...
Soarer Central: ZETUM ZU37 sports tires

I think they're kind of talking about Zetum's?

Re: Tires that you prefer on you car
I got some affordable Kumho Zetum's on my 17 inch wheels. I've been driving on them for two weeks and love them, they seem to have a bit less traction in the rain.
