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 General G-MAX AS-03

This tire is the Bee's knees! The stock Kumho's were trash, didn't last very long and did awful if there was anything but pavement under them. This are very responsive, smooth, and great traction in wet conditions. I've only had a couple days on light snow and ice, but didn't have any slippage yet. Makes my car fun to drive again! Also can't beat the price.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z III

Okay, I decided to give a shot on this Sumitomo tires after reading reviews and watching TR comparison vid. Prior to these tires, I had Kumho Eczta and Falken Azenis. These were quite similar w/ Falken having a slightly performance edge. These are also about 40% more expensive than the Sumitomo. The bad news first: Although in the video comparison, TR says...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred

Tires were bought and put on my wife's car but I drive most of the time. These tires are so much more comfortable than the factory tires (Kumho). The ride is quite and so smooth it seems like we bought a new car. They were a little more expensive than tires we could have purchased but we felt confident they would provide us with everything we were looking...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA71

My 2013 Dodge Dart came with Kumho KH16 from factory (205/55/16) brand new when I purchased the car in 2014 it had 13,000. 2 years later those tires lasted me to about 56,000 Miles. After doing my own research and chatting with Tire Rack online, I went ahead purchased these Kumho TA71 over the General Altimax RT43 and I believe I made the best decision. I...  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 Ecsta PS31

With a thousand miles I'm still enamored that all tires match. I purchased the car with 17,669 miles on it along with Dunlop's on the fronts and Bridgestone on the rears. Fronts probably original, rears replaced. Had some curb rash repaired, the rims refinished and tires mounted at the same place for under $800.00. So far I've been on the LA frwys on 100...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LE Sport

Have this tire replace the oem P zero nero at 14000 miles, which is very noise! This Kumho is much better on noise level as well as performance compare to these OEM. I go for a plus size 215/40-17 instead of the stock size. On Tire Rack, these tire will not fit the Fiat Abarth or any other 500. But they do fit without rubbing on a stock rim. These tire...  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 Solus TA71

These tires are fantastic. They replaced the original Michelins that lasted 65,000 miles and could have gone a few thousand more. The Kumho TA-71 seem to handle as well or better, but the big difference is the reduced noise level. The Michelins were good, but being a Honda it does pick up road noise more than a lot of other cars. Problem solved. One small...  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

i highly recommend these tires. steering response is great & the sidewalls are stiffer which i like. it absorbs the bumps pretty well. handling is great for both dry & wet. car drives smooth & i feel confident driving on these tires. i haven't tested them on winter yet so hopefully they will do ok. i'm running 35psi on these tires & it's comfortable & drives...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA11

I haven't had these tires long, but they are a newer model of the Kumho tires I bought for my car last time, which I loved. So I'm assuming that these will perform just as well, if not better. I drive a little 4-door Hyundai, and my previous Kumhos got about 35,000 miles on the tread life. These TA11's have a better wear rating on them, so I expect a bit...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KR21

I drive a 96 Sentra 100 miles a day, mostly all highway. Much of this driving is on cruise control at 55-65 mph. This is what I would consider light duty for these tires. I do not challenge these tires much, but I have driven with them in all sorts of weather, including deep show, and they've been flawless. I have never slipped, hydroplaned, skidded, or even...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA11

I've had these on the car for about 1100-miles or so (maybe closer to 1500), and couldn't be more pleased. My wet review opinions might be a little skewed because it was likely pretty greasy the last time it rained, but I'm still very pleased with this purchase. I think these tires are a great value so far and wouldn't hesitate to purchase them again. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

I drive about half my miles on twisty country roads, the rest is normal city/highway. I tried these cheap Kuhmo's after chewing through the OEM Dunlops in only 20K miles and then sliding around for 35K on the dangerously bad wet traction of the Yokohama Avid Ascends.These are the best tires I've had on my car. Good wet and dry traction, fine on road noise (a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KH25

I am not quite sure what tires the previous people are riding on, but that is not my experience. I bought my 2014 Hyundai Veloster Turbo two years ago brand new. I have driven this car very hard and whatever the car could give I took it. With that being said, I have driven in heavy rain with no problems and well above the posted speed limits. I have taken...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

I purchase these tries back in Dec 2015, and so far to date i've put about 1,500 miles on them. As far as snow and Ice go i have no report because i baby my 2012 Volks CC so she stayed in the garage doing our Southern MD snow storms. The noise level is so much better than the OE Continental that came with the car. The only thing i noticed and I saw this in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus XC

This tire was standard on my 2015 Hyundai Sonata Limited 2.0 T. After 2000 miles I am extremely satisfied with the performance on both dry and wet roads. The ride is quiet and smooth, and works well on the car. I would definitely recommend it.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KH25

OEM tires. Bought the car with 6K on it. In the 4000 miles we've put on it, they have been barely acceptable going on road trips. Somewhat harsh ride, VERY LOUD on certain types of pavement, especially on concrete. Handling was acceptable. The real problems appeared the first time it rained. These tires are HORRIBLE in the rain. I was going 10-20 miles an...  Read More
