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 Ecsta PS91

Exceptional grip in all conditions. Compared to the original F1 Supercars that came on the 1LE, these PS91s offer improved traction when accelerating and cornering and they don't turn into water skis as soon as the road gets damp. At 7,000 miles, I estimate that these tires will easily make it to 15k (the original F1s made it 11k). I can verify that the...  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

My first set of the KUMHO ECSTA 4X II's got me about 38K miles before I replaced them and at that point the tread was basically gone off of at least two tires. That being said, they're inexpensive and when they're new they perform wonderfully. I bought a 2nd set and I may drive a little less spiritedly to see if I can get more life out of them.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

The Kuhmo's have been a pleasant surprise. Excellent road manners, very quiet compared to Goodyear, Sumi's & BFg's. Side wall has some give but predictable. Dry traction is excellent while wet traction is comparable. Very pleased would definately buy again for the SS depending upon durability, time will tell. Kuhmo's have come a long way since my first set...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta ASX

Replaced OEM tires Dunlop Sport 5000 M. Cost of replacement Dunlops, $173ea. Cost of Kuhmo Ecstas $82ea. The Kuhmo's ride is softer, less thud on bumps/tar strips and quieter, less transmitted pavement groove noise and tread noise. The steering is not quite as accurate. Cornering ability is slightly less on dry pavement, noticeably better on wet pavement.Stop...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

I had these tires installed at the South Bend Distribution Center in March of 2016. First off, I can not recommend having Tire Rack install your tires enough. Fantastic experience!South Bend's location is such that you are just south of Michigan in Indiana and only about 50 minutes from Lake Michigan to east. I tell you this because when I drove from central...  Read More

Excellent tires that upgrade my old Nissan Cefiro Brougham VIP 3.0 from a boring sedan to an excellent ultimate driving machine 😎 http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Kumho&tireModel=Ecsta+PS31&sidewall=Blackwall&partnum=345WR8PS31XL&tab=Sizes   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

I've purchased Kumho tires from Tire Rack previously for several other vehicles including this one over a 16 year period and this set rates as high in most categories than the other models. I always got great long-term comfort, wear and satisfaction from them, all were high performance-oriented tires with H, V and W speed ratings. This set has proven to be...  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 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 Ecsta LX Platinum

I just replaced the original Continental CV95 with these Platinums and the are possibly the best tires I've ever purchased. Important to my driving habits are Road Feel, Cornering, Braking, Acceleration & Wet Traction. Also Treadwear, Durability against NYC potholes and Value are vital. Said and done, this tire exceeds my expectations!This past Summer I had...  Read More

Three Tire Brands You Shouldn't Overlook When Shopping for Affordable Tires

It can be easy for a consumer to be overwhelmed by the dozens of tire brands available on the market. During the shopping process, unfortunately many tire shoppers often overlook unfamiliar brands of tires without actually looking into them first. It's understandable that very few people want to take the time to research all of the lesser-known brands of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

Bought these tires as recommended by Tire Rack. Wow, what a difference tires make for steering , braking and noise level. These Kumho Tires replaced the harsher and much louder B. F. Goodrich Tires. The car has actually made the car seem brand new. Anyone who has a mid- size car will seem a different animal if you use these tires. You could pay more for...  Read More
