Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KH16

Replaced the OEM Dunlop's on my CX7 with these Solus's. Much lower noise level, and seem to track well. Very good in the rain on the interstates. Feel safe. Based on mileage so far and tread depth remaining I figure these will match the mileage got on the Dunlops. About 51,000. Bought them on a rebate deal from Tire Rack, so they were a bargain if they last...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

I had a set of Pirelli tires on my 04 Mazda3 s5door. Once they warmed up, I had traction through almost any corner I found on the roads. But the cons of the tire made me look elsewhere. 1st, they had an enormous amount of road noise. Not quite as bad as being back in my old Jeep, but you still had to raise your voice to carry on a conversation, or turn the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KH25

NO SNOW YET,NO TREAD WEAR YET. CANNOT UNDERSTAND THE BAD REVIEWS--NO IT IS NOT THE BEST A/S TIRE BUT I DRIVE TENNESSEE MOUNTAIN ROADS, INTERSTATES, GRAVEL RAODS, ETC. AND NOT GENTLY. I HAVE HAD NO GREAT PROBLEMS WITH THESE. DART HAS THE TOURING TYPE SUSP., SWAY BARS, STIFF SHOCKS ETC. NOT A MB RIDE BUT NOT BAD FOR THIS TYPE OF CAR. I HAVE HAD A MUCH WORSE...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LE Sport

Have this Ecsta LE Sport about 9800 miles on 2014 spring and summer in NYC. So far I like them a lot. noise level and performance is sure much better than the OEM Pirelli P zero Nero. My Abarth, has not much of tire choice for me either in 205/40 or 215/40-17 size. At the time I start search for replacement due to the noise level that I can't stand from my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Road Venture SAT KL61

When I found these tires on TireRack.com in 2011, they were rated near the top of the On-/Off-Road All Terrain survey group, and the price was a real bargain compared to the other tire models which were also rated high in that group. They also had the design and construction features that I wanted -- I always do thorough online comparison research before I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KH25

OEM on a lease and I am looking to buy a new set after 24k mile, I need 36k. I am down to 4/32 tread and I rotated the tires every 5k. Worst tire I ever owned in my 46 years of driving. Not only do they wear fast, they are maybe average traction and handling. Up until 10k there was hardly any road noise now I can't believe how loud these tires are and my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

I can write this review with zero miles on the tires because this is my third set. The Hankook's are a very good value, probably the best value to performance tire I've put on this car. And with 170k miles on my Mustang, I've put a lot of tires on this car. Unfortunately I bought this set a little before I needed them, because they were on close out. Which...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KH25

these also were the factory tires that come on the van, we purchased at 26,000 miles. They perform great in snow, my wife prove that this past winter. so I bought some for my car recently. I will buy nothing but KUMHO tires now.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X

These were a huge improvement over the Mich. stock tires. I will buy a new set mainly because of their excellent handling and traction. I was getting cut off on the highway doing 70, and all I did was a slight turn of the wheel; the response was perfect--no swaying and no need for heavy breaking. That was the day I swore I'd buy them again. I still have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X

Huge improvement over factory run flats, not as glued to the road as a Pilot Sport but for the price a great performance value, comfortable in rain and surprisingly capable in snow, pulls about 70% as hard off the line as a snow tire and lets the car move around a bit but you feel like you'll never get stuck. I have not had these on a track but based on the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KR21

Have been very satisfied with my now second set of Kumho Solus KR 21 tires. They deliver a comfortable ride with reliable handling in dry, wet, and even snowy conditions. I once drove 500 miles through blizzard-like conditions on plowed highways at almost regular highway speeds and my car handled remarkably well. No loss of control. Good traction.This tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X

NOISY, NOISY TIRES! HORRIBLE, STIFF RIDE. These tires cause my BMW 325i to feel like a barn wagon and to have a loud humming noise that sounds like a prop airplane engine. This car WAS fun to drive BEFORE I put these tires on it, but now with these tires, I have to blast the radio to compete with the noise from these tires on the highway. Please note that I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X

I purchased this tire based upon test results. Tire Rack has always provided great tests, no other tire store that I know of provides this service. They really liked this tire because it gripped like a Summer tire, but was an all-season tire. Well, the grip is really good. But the tire has two big faults.1. Tire squeal! This tire squeals loudly way before it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

I have been a Kumho guy for over 20 years. Owned 2 sets of the Platinum LX. Tires seem to drop off the inside tread prematurely. Both vehicles were aligned. All alignment specs are ok. 40k is the most mileage I could safely run these tires. Probably will not give them another chance. Snow traction is fair a best. But all other areas they are above average....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

Keeping in mind the price-point of these tires, I have been very impressed with their performance to this point. I have about 2000 miles on them and have driven them in just about every weather condition. Wet/dry traction has been impressive and I quickly gained confidence in these tires in light snow. In heavier snowfall, I adjust my driving style to the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

Purchased these tires thru TireRack to replace the P Zero Nero's on the X3 when I bought it used. (96K miles, now at 103K after 4 months!) We took the X on a 1200-mile road trip with the Pirellis still on it, then changed to the PA31s just before the winter driving season. (Oregon allows AWD passenger vehicles with M&S tires to opt out of chains when...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Sense

I went from having 18 Pirelli PZero Nero's to buying a 16 rim with these Kumho Sense tires and the difference couldn't have been greater. With the 18's road noise was almost unbearable. You almost couldn't carry on a conversation and the noise was even present at low speeds. Now the cabin is silent. With the 18's any amount of snow meant I was going nowhere....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X

This tire has incredible dry and wet grip, and it is very resistant to hydroplaning so far with about 14,000 miles on them. They are also very responsive to steering input and give a stable ride. Be aware that these tires do have stiff sidewalls though, so they will firm up the ride and they are a bit more noisy than a touring tire, so if you want something...  Read More

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

I bought these tires a month ago to replace tires damaged by road debris. These are by FAR the best tires I've had on this car, including OEM Potenzas, Kumho Solus KH16, two sets of General Altimax HP. The General's were pretty good, but wore fast and did not corner/brake on snow well. These Pirelli's are amazing. The car is noticeably quieter and rides...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max

I got two years and 50,000 miles out of these tires and for the most part, I must say that I am pleasantly surprised that they lasted as long as they did. These are the OEM tires on my 2011 Prius 3 and they have been absolutely trouble free from day one but there are good and bad parts about any product so here goes. The bad:For those not familiar with the...  Read More
