Check out Kumho's new Max Performance Summer Tire. Last summer, Tire Rack put the Kumho Ecsta LE Sport up against the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2, Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric and Continental ExtremeContact DW. Some pretty heavy hitters if you ask me. Even though Kumho finished fourth in our overall tire test, it was extremely comparable on ride comfort and ranked the quietest tire of the four. It was only after we pushed the tire harder did Kumho's test results begin to drop. One thing the Kumho Ecsta LE Sport offers is a capable tire at an economical price point.
Take a look at some of the test video footage and read the full data test if you want some more tire information.
It is also important to remember, many of us do not push our modern sport vehicles near their performance limits and do not need a higher priced premium tire.
I would Recommend the Kumho Ecsta LE Sport for the driver that may not be an extremely spirited driver but does drive with some spirit in dry conditions.
