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 Sumitomo HTR Z II

Have had these sitting in the garage after taking them off a couple years ago when my daughter took the car off to college. Just put them back on for the spring, replacing worn out Kumho Ecsta 4X All Seasons. On the way home from getting them mounted it was like getting to know an old friend again. Better responsiveness, launch at stop lights, and general...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

I had a set of Kumhos on my 98 Outback before i got these Hankooks. best tire i have ever used. very good traction even in gravel. packed snow and ice traction is fairly good, if you do not drive too fast and drive easy in the snow and ice you should be good. noise level is pretty good, much quieter that the Kumhos. i do not drive easy and after about 25k...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

Bought these tires from tire rack because of several reasons; First was price, @ $86 dollars a piece how could you go wrong, next was warranty, which comes with a 24 months hazard warranty, plus the tires are 6 years 50,000 miles tires, I didn't have to pay sales tax for the tires being from PA, I did have to pay for shipping, but the tires arrived next day...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KR21

I have a stone age 85 Honda Accord Sei approaching half a million miles. I am astounded by the performance of these 185/70x13 dunkin donut tires. Traction and cornering are exceptional for a tire of this size and price. The tires response to input and the feedback to the driver make my old car a blast to drive.   Read More

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

Bought these for my daughter's car. When we bought it, it had the original type Dunlops. They were pretty rough and the reviews weren't so hot. Replaced with some Kumho Ecstas. Better than the Dunlops but.... So since the originals had worn poorly, put factory struts all around thinking this will make the ride, handling and NVH better, and it did, but.......  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Best set of tires i have owned in several years. I replaced a set of Michelin Primacy and what a difference. I have not had them in the snow yet but wet and dry conditions, the tires performed better than any Michelin, Yokohama, Sumitomo or Kumho tire. Not sure about the in-tread designators - we will see. I wonder what makes a set of tires better for one...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

First impressions are that this tire has transformed this car. The handling is much more secure and the car is more fun to drive. Just came back from a 1500 mile drive and was impressed. Only one problem is that it has a very slight vibration that 3 efforts at balancing haven't eliminated it. The previous Kumho Escta Platinums were better in that regard.   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 Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

I just had my Kumho Ectas replaced with the P7s, and the difference is amazing. The Genesis is a comfortable car but with the P7s is is far better. When I bought the car, the OEM Dunlops had already been replaced, so I don't know how they were but P7s really bring the Genesis back to highway cruiser. They are much quieter, provide a much softer ride and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

Best tires ever. I'll never forget the day they were put on my car, my car felt brand new (it had 175,000 mile on it) and drove better the the day I bought it! Quite smooth, overall great deal, looking to get these tires on my new car asap!!   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 Ecsta 4X

These are great tires, but if you aren't a spirited driver get a touring tire. I found them to be great in the dry with very good feedback and low noise at the limits. They got me through 3 Michigan winters with acceptable performance. Probably the best all season performance tire for my car and very affordable as a bonus.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KH25

I grew up and learned to drive in Maine and have been driving for 20 years. Never before have I had to drop to 40mph or less on the highway in moderate rain due to slipping and hydroplaning, but I routinely have to on these tires. In winter my car becomes a death trap, I might as well be driving on bald tires in the snow, as good as these things perform....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

I've had these 4 months driving an 2006 Acura TL manual transmission in Denver, Colorado. Pros: - Quiet, much quieter than I expected. I don't think I've heard a single squeal in 4 months. WAY more quite than the awful Bridgestones I used to have. - Good wet traction, including snowy slush - Attractive price - Good dry traction- Decent snow traction, I guess...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

Good winter tire. Slight tread wander on dry roads when new, but not much more than the Goodyear's I've had. Overall, can't beat it for the price. Bought them specifically for the winter on my AWD car. These aren't Blizzak's, but they are more than acceptable. I just had to slow down a bit.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KR21

These tires are great! We have 3 sets. I have 63,000 miles on my SUV with these and my girlfriend has over 40,000 on her 2005 Altima . I see many bad reviews but wonder how many people get a wheel alignment after installing new tires like you should. I also noticed some people had put them on old cars. That makes a difference too. I take very good care of my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I have a heavy E320 4-Matic....I tried the Kumho Ecsta...Good traction but wore at 7500 miles and felt flimsy. I went cheap and Bough Fuzion All Season, It was the most DANGERIOUS SCARIEST TIRE I HAVE EVER SEEN....PURE HORROR!!!Then I decided to go for this Continental Pure Contact...This is the ONLY tire you need EVER!!! It is the Most Traction....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

I have run Yoko H4S, Yoko S.drive, Sumitomo HTR A/S P01, and Kumho 4X. This is, without a doubt, the absolute best tire to date. The box is lowered on BC BR coilovers with TRD rear sway bar, and the 195/55-15 BFGs are mounted on 15X7 Trakelite Burn wheels. This is a stiff/lightweight setup, and every tire until now has either felt too nervous or just jiggly....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

We got hit with a foot of snow and sleet and had the opportunity to drive these tires during the winter storm. For an all season tire these things did great especially when mounted on a 300HP RWD sedan. While hordes of cars were getting stuck going up a snowy/icey mix covered hill these tires propelled me up, with some slippage, but I didn't spend the night...  Read More
