April 17, 2014

Just bought these tires to replace my Kumhos. The Kumhos had fantastic tread life, but they kept skipping and not gripping when I put any extra pressure on the gas. I noticed an immediate difference when I installed the Potenza S-04's. I love to accelerate hard after a full stop, and the S-04's have reduced the skipping tendencies of my car by 85-90%. So far I love them, but I do worry about the tread life, which I understand will be less than that of the Kumhos. If I get 20,000 miles out of this set, I'll be happy.

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 wear showing at 15K and my aggressive driving style I think they'd hold up well. I can buy 3 sets of these or two sets, a spare and jack for the price of the garbage run flats that BMW put on at the factory.

Going from BFG super sport a/s were good for 10k, but then its different rubber compounds made them feel like my struts were bad. Then went with Toyo Proxes 4 plus which were heavy, impossible to balance, and just plain terrible. The Kumho's are the best Ive had on this car. Would recommend them without reservation.

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 not only provides a confident driving experience in all seasons, but my fuel economy remained the same at 50mpg (sometimes improved to 54mpg), the tire noise was minimal, and they are a great value. My first set of Kumho's lasted 78,000 miles; my second set 45,000 miles. Not sure why the difference, but I am still a satisfied driver and plan to buy my third set.

Easily the best tires on my MS3 so far.

OEM tires on my car were Pirellis; I'm not sure what model. They lasted for roughly 18k miles. Cornering was terrible and noise levels were awful. The growl they produced could almost drown out the running engine.

Afterwards, I went to Kumho Ectsas which grip significantly improved; however, the noise level and ride comfort wasn't all that great. After hitting a pretty substantial pothole with my second set of Ecstas, a bubble appeared in the inside wall of the front right tire and since that set had around 45k on them, I decided to move to the Pilots.

Best decision I have made in a long while. The tires run super quiet and feel like you're riding on a cloud. Grip is amazing in dry weather and is exceptional in wet, snowy, and packed snow conditions. Cornering is tight, launches are crisper and overall ride comfort is amazing. Some of the greatest tires I have ever driven.

Kumho Ecsta PA31: All-Season Traction at a Great Price

Thursday, May 15, 2014 by Zig Ziegler

The Ecsta PA31 is Kumho's newest introduction to the High Performance All-Season performance category. It's also currently ranked number one in our survey results. Ecsta PA31 tires are typically at a price-point that's a little lower when compared to similar options. These tires would be a great choice for drivers of mid-level sports cars, sporty coupes and high-performance sedans, such as BMW, Audi, Mercedes-Benz and others.

Designed to provide high performance handling in wet and dry conditions, the tire also delivers Kumho’s unparalleled combination of ride comfort, low noise and all-season traction, even in light snow.

 Kuhmo Ecsta PA31

Ecsta PA31 tires feature an advanced technology tread compound that blends high performance handling and all-season traction with long treadwear. Its compound is molded into a mildly directional tread design that promotes even wear, responsive steering, cornering stability and braking traction in all-season conditions. The directional tread design’s four circumferential and multiple cross grooves help expel water quickly to resist hydroplaning and improve wet weather traction.

If your drive demands a tire with a performance edge, quiet ride and all-season traction, and you're looking to get the most performance for your dollar, take a look at the Kumho Ecsta PA31!

You will be amazed by how quiet and steady your Kumho tires will be on your car. I got my first set of Kumho's as a replacement for Continental ContiTacs on my BMW325xi all wheel drive wagon in 2004. The Kumho's gripped better, and they were quieter. I have since used Kumho's as replacement tires on our Mitsubishi, Volkswagen GTI, BMW M3, and our Hyundai Elantra. I am a Kumho customer for life.

Bought a pair for the front my 93 Sunbird SE,everyday work car. These tires out performed any tire I have ever owned. I never rotated them,always been on the front of a FWD car. I have pushed these tires to the test with hard cornering and fast accelerations at times. I have a 3.1 V6 with a lot of torque, with stock tires on hard acceleration would easily spin, these tire barely squealed,and grabbed the road. Had great traction in wet weather and really no hydroplaning,unless hitting a large puddle at a high speed, but manageable. These tires ran smooth and had grate responsiveness. I live in New England and these tires are not for winter driving, they do okay in a few inches of snow but beyond that you need to run dedicated snow tires! Great tire based on performance and price! I have had Kumho tires on other vehicles I owned and have always performed well! Do your homework and read the reviews see what best fits your driving needs. Good luck and I hope this helps

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 only replaced my rear tires, so there are only two of these tires on my car and the ride comfort has plummeted dramatically. I can only imagine how unbearable it would be to have all four of the tires as the Kumho Ecsta 4X. I am very disappointed because most of the reviewers had reported that these were quiet tires, but that is not the case for my car. Now my car feels like a very low end vehicle on its last legs. Awful. Don't buy these tires. Or wear earplugs while driving that you would wear at a rock concert.

Despite my displeasure with the tires, I must say is that the service from TireRack has been excellent. The tires arrived when promised and the installer honored the prices agreed upon. I would definitely purchase tires from this website again, but they would be a different brand and model.

The Kumho Solus KH16 exceeded my initial expectations. Very minimal road noise, my car handles great and for the value for money aspect, this finishes near the top. It's still summer here in the East Coast so I will make another update once winter sets in and we will be fortunate enough this year to have a pretty decent amount of snowfall.

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 starts to lose traction. I can be well under control and people around will look to see who is about to have an accident. The tire grips very well, but complains loudly while doing it. I cannot get anywhere near the limit of this tire without drawing huge amounts of attention to myself.
2. This tire is one of the worst tires I have had with regards to steering responsiveness. This tire is so slow to respond that the car feels like I'm driving a boat. I will admit that I have just come off some of the best tires I have ever had (Bridgestone RE01, this tire was the most responsive tire I have ever had on my SHO. The Bridgestone made my car handle like a Porsche). These Kumos have such a soft sidewall. The response from the sidewall is almost 1/2 second late. Breaking is fantastic, and the tire is hard to spin on takeoff, but turn in is slower than my grandmother! I am having to buy a new tire because I miss judged the response time of this tire and hit a curb and cut a gash into the sidewall. I have been traveling this road for 12 years and this is the first time I have ever hit that curb! Not a happy camper!

My third set of Kumhos, I always was "satisfied" with these tires, not the best in class but always an excellent value (KU-27's and ASX's prior). SO far I have to say I am VERY impressed with ride quality, low tread noise and excellent wet traction. They balanced perfectly, NO shimmy all the way to 90 mph, I mean not a trace! Well see about winter traction, I suspect they will be good. My car is AWD and last season the KU-27's got me through almost three feet of snow at half tread depth....no easily mind you but three feet of snow is not a cake walk for any car. Will

Winter Tires Off and Ultra High Performance All-Season Tires On?

Thursday, April 10, 2014 by Cy Chowattukunnel

It looks like spring has actually sprung! This week we'll get more than one warm day in a row. That's great for us, especially after this winter, but consistent warm weather isn't so good for your snow tires. Their specialized rubber compound will wear prematurely in warmer temperatures. So winter tires off, summer tires on, right? Not necessarily, as you may want to consider an all-season tire. Consider the following factors on whether you should get a summer or all-season tire.

Summer tires, especially on a powerful sporty car with great innate handling, allows you to push your vehicle to its limits. In order to benefit from the higher grip and crisper steering response of summer tires, you really have to love to drive and/or your vehicle is so performance oriented that it needs summer tires to handle correctly.

Are you not as intense during your daily commute? Exact attributes will vary from tire to tire, but you might be disappointed with a summer tire's higher tread noise, harsher ride, faster wear and poor grip in colder temperatures. Maybe you'd rather emphasize a quiet, more comfortable ride, with better longevity and cold weather versatility combined with enhanced emergency handling? Then consider options in the Ultra High Performance All-Season category instead of a summer tire.

I'd take a good look at the Michelin Sport A/S 3 for its superior wet and dry grip, the Continental ExtremeContact DWS for its versatility in the face of an unexpected spring or fall snowstorm and the Kumho Ecsta 4X for its combination of decent wet grip, crisp steering response and value.

March 31, 2014

I just switched to the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 tires as I had my third blow out on a set of Kumho SPT tires in about 5K miles and 13 months. On two occasions I could not see any rhyme or reason for the blow outs. On the first occasion it was a nasty pot hole and I totally understand.

The Michelin's are absolutely amazing, in particular for the price point that they are at. I managed to put about 500 miles on them in 3 days in dry, wet, very wet, cold and light snow conditions. The tires just performed amazingly well. In the dry, the level of adhesion is beyond the other three sets of tires I had on this car (Bridgestones and Kumho). On the same on / off ramps, I am going about 15 MPH above the other two tires limit and these just keep on sticking! The breakaway characteristics are very linear and very predictable and in the GTI with its FWD very easy to manage. Even more impressive is their traction in the wet, where on a trip to upstate NY in the rain and heavy down pour, they did not hydroplane even once and I had to physically watch the speedometer as the confidence that these tires inspire can easily inspire one to go a lot faster than one should! There was light snow when we got to the mountains and in the light snow there was no issue whatsoever with traction or predictability.

The tires are soft to the touch but in the 50 or so miles of the dry back road twisties I went to and threw the car around, I could not see any tread-wear whatsoever. I have not seen that on any new tires that I have tried on any of my cars as I have always got them to grain a little bit in that type of spirited driving. The steering response is immediate and predictable and I can really toss this car around knowing what the tires are doing as they communicate the surface really well. They are the quietest tires I have ever had on any car and there were no harsh noises or jolts when going over expansion joints.

I wholeheartedly and without reservations recommend these tires.

The G-MAX was my third set of tires on this car. 35000 miles seems to be about the maximum amount mileage I can get out of a set of tires with this car. I keep it aligned and watch tire pressure closely but, I cannot rotate the tires due to the different size tires and offset of the OEM wheels. For all around performance, the G-MAX was better than the OEM Bridgestones and the second set Kumho LX, which performed well except on ice and deep snow. However, there is a reason why I only got 27,000 miles instead of 35,000+ with the G-max. I had to replace them because I couldn't stand the noise anymore. The first 5000 miles were fine but after that it sounded like I was running mud tires. Handling on dry, wet, snow and ice were fine. Treadwear good and even. Noise was awful. My radio only goes up to 10. VanHalen called me and ask me to quit playing their music so loud. Now trying the Hankook Ventus and Eddie hasn't called once. I'll report back in 20,000 miles. BTW,Tire Rack rocks. Working on about my 10th set of tires with different vehicles from them.

Best Tires for Subaru Outback

Monday, March 31, 2014 by Gary Stanley

If the tires on your Subaru Outback are nearing replacement, be sure to check out the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus. While many drivers associate Pirelli with producing ultra high performance tires for exotic high-end sports cars like Ferrari and Lamborghini, they also make outstanding all-season touring tires. In fact, the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus is currently ranked number one by our customers in the Grand Touring All-Season performance category.  

The tire's great balance of traction, handling and ride quality to go along with a 70,000-mile treadwear warranty make the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus an ideal match for many Subaru Outback drivers.  

Take a look at what Outback owners are saying about their experience with the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus:

"So glad I did my research with Tire Rack and compared the tires side-by-side. After a full week of research, I went with the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus and the difference is amazing. The noise level from my previous Bridgestone Potenza is a 180. The Pirelli is hands down the best tire I've owned!" -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2003 Subaru Outback Wagon 

"This tire has amazed me since it was installed 10,000 miles ago. Immediately, I noticed a difference in decreased road noise and increased ride comfort over the O.E. Continental. It has been a great tire while driving in heavy rain and an equally as great tire when taking corners a little faster than you should." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited

"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 O.E. Potenzas, Kumho Solus KH16 and two sets of General AltiMAX HPs. These Pirellis are amazing. The car is noticeably quieter and rides smoother - it's like a new car. We have had a snowy winter so far in Connecticut, so I have had many chances to test these on snow and ice. Truly impressive." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2003 Subaru Outback L.L. Bean

While you're thinking about tires, check your tires' air pressure since they can lose 1 psi per month. To learn more about this important safety issue, read "Winter Air Pressure Versus Summer Air Pressure."

March 11, 2014

Living in central Alabama, I needed a tire capable of handling a little bit of anything. We get plenty of rain, and the occasional dusting of snow. However, I didn't want to totally compromise dry handling characteristics. This tire fit that bill quite well.

For pure dry grip levels, it's an all-season. Don't expect sports car levels of grip. However, it handles mild spirited driving just fine (even did an autocross or two on these). It doesn't make too much noise either. Treadlife and wear is nice, and appear that these will last most drivers well.

In the wet, they are great. We get some heavy downpours here, and I've always had full confidence hitting even large puddles on the highway at reasonable speeds. Wet traction is well maintained, and very respectable.

What little bit of snow we get (as well as the bit I've experienced with these during my travels out of state) was handled well by these tires. Obviously not a dedicated snow tire, but in light snow, slush, and even patches of ice they remained a solid choice.

If you're looking for an all-around go to tire that you won't have to worry about what the weather will be, at a great price, you won't be disappointed with the Kumho Ecsta 4X!

The Kumho ECSTA PA31 is probably the best passsenger car tire I have ever bought and I'm 48 years old. I have driven this tire on a 2007 Acura TL for 10,000 miles and it has been nothing short of outstanding. I drive 280 miles a day, 3 to 4 days a week from the Eastern Allegheny mountains to the Pittsburgh airport. Through driving rains, dry roads, sleet and snow, you name it. I always wondered what my car would be like if it had AWD. Now I know, this tire is SOLID!!!
