Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

I drive mostly highway (averaging 100 miles a day) commuting from home to work. I reached the 12000 mile mark since buying them about 5 months ago, and noticed the road noise becoming more and more unbearable. I have the radio on between 15 and 20 (max is 40) and the tires still drown out the music. When first mounted, the tires were quiet and very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

This is my second set of these tires on 2 different cars. The first was an AWD Volvo wagon and they were fantastic in all weather. This is my second set this time on a nearly new Mazda 6. The Mazda 6 comes with hard riding noisy Dunlop tires. At 18000 miles I hit some road debris and damaged 2 beyond repair. I insist on 4 matching tires so my choices were to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Road Venture AT51

Have had these tires for a few months and so far I'm very happy. I like the look of these tires and they have provided perfect traction in multiple on/off road conditions. I can't comment on tread wear as I have only put around 5,000 miles on them, but they are shaping up to be a great value! Would definitely buy again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I commute 180-190 miles per day mostly on interstate under mix of all seasonal conditions and frequent sudden turns and hard braking to avoid sudden traffic stops. I am very pleased with these tires and their performance. Wear is outstanding. I'm at 65K and can still read the snow S on tread. I've actually been considering running through another winter due...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X

Ive had this current set of tires on my car for only 23,000 miles or less. I am not a very aggressive driver and only put about 15 miles per day with the occasional highway road trip. within the past 6 weeks, Ive had 3 different tires blowout on me. all interior sidewall with exposed wire framing. Discount tire tells me, oh this is normal wear and tear BS....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA71

I just purchased this tire after the terrible experience of ContiProContact. The Contis were extremely noisy and a very uncomfortable ride. I literally hated driving. I was torn between the Conti Extreme Contacts, General Altimax and the Kumhos. My wife's Lexus has the ContiPureContacts and they are really a good tire. Very quiet and smooth. So I was torn on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

this tire honestly exceeded my expectations for it. Dry traction is outstanding, the only way to ever get them to break free of the pavment is to punch the throttle hard from a dead stop and even then a couple chirps of skidding rubber and there stuck to the ground again.The Wet traction is way better then I had expected from such a summer looking tread...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

I love this tire ... on this car. It's actually my wife's car, but since she doesn't commute anymore, it's there for both of us. The OEM tires survived for about 50k miles, but they were puncture magnets and finally, when I found a screw imbeded in the tread about an inch from a previous plug, I decided to swap them out. I have to admit I chose the Kumhos...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

The Kuhmo's have been a pleasant surprise. Excellent road manners, very quiet compared to Goodyear, Sumi's & BFg's. Side wall has some give but predictable. Dry traction is excellent while wet traction is comparable. Very pleased would definately buy again for the SS depending upon durability, time will tell. Kuhmo's have come a long way since my first set...  Read More

Are Your All-Season Tires Ready to Handle All Seasons?

There‚Äôs no doubt that when it comes to driving in inclement weather during the winter months, nothing beats a set of winter / snow tires. However, if you reside in an area that receives only light snow and an all-season tire is all you need, how that tire performs during the winter months is typically the deciding factor when purchasing your replacement...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KR21

Initially these tires were impressive in a positive way. Unfortunzately as the miles mounted up the noise they create is almost unbearable! Ice traction leaves much to be desired. Tread ware will probably be 2/3rds of the rating which is 85k. My advise is donor buy this tire!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

This is my second set of these tires on my current car. The first wore out after only 30,000 miles. The dealership from which I bought them replaced them with the same tires based on warranty rates (these have a 60,00 mile tread wear warranty). However, I'm having to replace my current set only after roughly 27,000 miles. The tires drive great, even in light...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

The Dunlop SP 7000's that came with my accord were ok for dry but were mediocre in the rain and Snow. These Kumho's are better in every aspect except road noise, the PA31 can be a little noisy on concrete highways no problems on asphalt.Turn in and stability are great for the price and definitely better than stock unless some other moderately priced...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Purchased the Pilot A/S 3 91V-rated to replace ContiPro Contact SSR 91H run flats. I carry a spare in the trunk.Conti lasted about 25-30k and were gone. Run flats give you piece of mind but they were noisier than Pilot - I noticed it from the beginning I installed these on. Pilots are also provide a softer ride over small bumps and anomalies on a road; Conti...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Outstanding! I had Bridgestone's and Kumho's installed on this 15 year old car before. But after reading the reviews on this tires, I decided to trust the public. Man was it on the money!Before buying these Pirellis I just had the rear struts replaced. I didn't wanna write a review until I tried it in the snow around Chicago. I'm absolutely satisfied, happy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LE Sport

On this car I have had Conti DW, BFG, and Toyo proxes. I would never buy the Toyo all season Proxes 4 again. Simply a horrible tire. The BFG had two compounds blended together which made them wear funny and after 10k miles they were terrible. These Khumo's are the best tire I have had on this vehicle. They are y rated and aa traction.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Great tire, amazing dry & wet traction. Driving an SL(Sports Light ?) requires a tire with sure footing at speed and occasional wet weather conditions. This Michelin A/S 3 sticks like glue dry road or wet. Has minor noise around 45 mph, not intrusive but disappointiing to me. Good ride, handles well like a performance tire. My car has gvw listed 4,4xx lbs....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

Sadly, this car was lost in a recent flood, so we did not have time to really put these tires through all of their paces. Nonetheless, this Kumho set exceeded my expectations. They were far better than the highly-overrated Michelins they replaced, which rode hard and had poor grip (typical of Michelin--they came with the car when we bought it). The Kumho...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Road Venture SAT KL61

I don't understand all the negative reviews for this tire. I have driven over 20,000 miles on these tires and they have performed flawlessly. By the looks of the tread I should get a least 50K on the set. I would definitely buy another set but I understand Kumho has discontinued this tire. Great looking tire at a reasonable price.   Read More
