Same as Butts. Swapped the Kumho's out a bit earlier though at the 35k mark for Bridgestone D697s. Not noisy at all - very happy with them.

Kizz, I think mrcazbir is a spam post. He posted the identical blurb on Whirlpool under the WK2 thread and it was deleted marked spam.

If your belt is not buckled, it requests a manual release of the park brake. A simple downward press of the button. It ain't hard.
