Initial Review, 2,100 Miles on Tires
December 26, 2013

Wow, these tires rock. I have gone through a bunch of different tires on my car (Kumho Ecsta 4x, Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position, Continental ExtremeContact and Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus to name a few). Since I drive aggressively, I don’t get to many miles from my tires.
I live in the northeast and have already experienced 4+ inches of snow with these tires along with icy/slushy hail, and high 70 degree weather (imagine that in DC area in Winter!). These tires are ultra-quite, have great predictability in steering, and awesome performance in snow/ice/dry weather. Even though there more expensive than other tires, I will be making sure to place these on our other cars when those tires wear out (Mustang and Infiniti FX45).
Hopefully Pirelli doesnt stop selling these tires.

 

Which Competition Tires Suit Your Needs Best?

Wednesday, December 18, 2013 by Neal O'Neal

Many are already thinking about the 2014 track season and some of those that live in warm climates are still racing. Wherever you may reside, choosing a competition tire can be overwhelming, especially for the beginner.

Racetrack & Autocross Only

Majority of tires in this class feature a slick type design that offers the top in dry traction, steering response, braking and acceleration. These tires are delicate and are not intended to be driven on the street or exposed to cold temperatures. Their life can be extended by using our in-house heat cycling service. A few of the top performers include:

Wet Racetrack & Autocross Only

These tires feature a more aggressive directional tread design and deep tread depths to provide excellent wet traction on the track. Tires in this performance category are delicate and not intended to be street driven or exposed to cold temperatures. If this sounds like something you're looking for out of a tire, Hoosier offers a great option.

Drag Racing Radials

Specifically designed for straight line racing, this class gives the driver drag strip performance from tires that are streetable. Due to their soft sidewalls, meant to help the tire deflect under straight line acceleration, they can feel softer than normal around corners in street conditions. These tires are delicate and not intended to be driven in wet conditions or exposed to cold temperatures. Top performers in the category include:


BFGoodrich g-Force R1

Hoosier Radial Wet H20

Toyo Proxes TQ


No matter what your level of expertise on the track, Tire Rack has the tires you need!

Kumho Tires Make a Great Option

Thursday, August 29, 2013 by Steve Huffman

So, you're in the market for a new set of tires and you've come across Kumho, a brand you may not be all that familiar with. Fair enough, they may not be as big of a household name as Goodyear or Michelin, but this Korean brand is one of the top tire manufacturers in the world. In the United States, you will find Kumho tires as Original Equipment on many Hyundai, Kia and Ford vehicles. Simply put, Kumho makes a good tire at a good price.

Their Ecsta LX Platinum is a highly rated Grand Touring All-Season tire. This tire has been one of our best sellers for the past few years. It has very nice ride qualities, including a very smooth, quiet and comfortable ride. The tire has good all-season traction, to go along with a long-lasting 60,000-mile treadlife warranty.

The Kumho Solus KR21 is their Standard Touring All-Season option. While this tire may not have the premium qualities as the Platinum model mentioned above, it is a nice value option none the less. Going along with great all-season traction, this tire is one of the longest lasting options with an 85,000-mile treadlife warranty.

Kumho's Ecsta 4X is an Ultra High Performance All-Season tire that provides awesome handling and great responsiveness, combined with year-round traction. This sporty tire has a cool tread design that is backed by a 40,000-mile treadlife warranty.

How Good Are Kumho Ecsta Tires?

Thursday, August 1, 2013 by Gary Stanley

Many drivers have heard of Kumho tires since they've been sold in the United States for over ten years. If you have not considered Kumho tires in the past, you may want to take another look at them now. While Kumho does make some entry-level tires that compete on price, they also manufacture tires that compete with some of the top tires on the market.

Much like the name "Pilot" on a Michelin tire or "Eagle" on a Goodyear tire, the name "Ecsta" on a Kumho tire identifies it as one of their performance oriented tires. There is no one Kumho Ecsta tire, instead there's a family of tires that have the Ecsta name on them. Two of the best performance tires in the Kumho Ecsta line are the all-season Kumho Ecsta 4X and summer Ecsta LE Sport

If you aren't looking for an ultra high performance tire and instead want long treadlife and a quiet, soft ride, check out the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum. To see how this tire could work for you, read "Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum vs. Kumho Ecsta 4X."

All three of these tires rate highly in their categories and performed competitively in our testing, all while still being reasonably priced. So, are Kumho Ecsta tires good? Absolutely! 

Are Kumho Tires Good?

Wednesday, June 5, 2013 by Colin .

Many customers often ask me if Kumho tires are good and worth considering. I tell them that Kumho makes good performing tires at a lower price level than some of its competitors. In many categories, Kumho offers a great option that many of our sales specialists recommend to drivers on a daily basis.

Standard Touring All-Season

The Solus KR21 is one of Kumho's Standard Touring All-Season options. Designed for the drivers of family coupes, sedans, minivans, crossovers and SUVs, it provides good traction and ride qualities to go along with an 85,000-mile treadlife warranty. Kumho offers a road hazard warranty for one year or the first 2/32" of treadwear.

Grand Touring All-Season

In the Grand Touring All-Seaon category, Kumho's best offering is the Ecsta LX Platinum. It is designed to blend responsive handling, long wear (60,000-mile treadlife warranty) and a quiet ride with year-round traction including in light snow. 

Ultra High Performance All-Season

Kumho's Ecsta 4X is an Ultra High Performance All-Season tire that blends excellent steering response with great wet and dry traction. Currently ranked in the top ten in its category, the Ecsta 4X is a great tire at a good price.

  • Wet Traction
  • Dry Traction
  • Light Snow Traction
  • Ride Comfort
  • Noise Comfort

Highway All-Season

Finally, Kumho's Road Venture APT KL51 is developed for light truck and SUV owners who drive North America's streets and highways. It offers excellent dry and wet traction, good ride qualities and a quiet ride.

Best Tires for the Honda Fit

Wednesday, May 29, 2013 by Steve Huffman

Is it time to get your Honda Fit outfitted with new tires? Since 2007, the Fit has been a great choice for commuters, students and many drivers looking for dependable transportation while not breaking the bank. These fuel-efficient compact cars are very sporty, attractive and popular. Whether you've had your Honda for many years or just picked one up used, it may be time for some new tires.

The Fit is available with several tire size options. Unfortunately, there's not one great tire that will cover all four sizes available. For those of you with the 185/55R16 size, the best tire would be the Yokohama AVID Ascend. This is a Grand Touring All-Season tire with above average all-season traction and a 75,000-mile treadlife warranty. However, you may want to consider changing sizes, due to the limited tires available in this size.

Fit owners can also use 205/50R16 tires as an alternative. It's a little wider and you may see a slight drop in fuel economy, but you will experience better wet and dry traction, improved handling and a better selection of tire options. One of the better selections in this size includes the Continental ExtremeContact DWS. This best seller has great all-season traction, a 55,000-mile treadlife warranty and handles very well.

If your Honda fit is equipped with 195/55R15 tires, take a look at the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum. This Grand Touring All-Season is very nice to drive on. It offers pleasant ride qualities and reasonable tread noise.

For Fits with the 175/65R14 tire, I would consider the Michelin Defender. This is a fantastic tire with superior all-season traction with a 90,000-mile treadlife warranty. It's designed to enhance fuel economy by meeting Michelin's Green-X low rolling resistance objectives.

Finally, in the 175/65R15 size, take a look at the General AltiMAX HP. The tire is designed to combine reliability, comfort and treadlife, as well as provide year-round traction, including in light snow.

Initial Review, 130 Miles on Tires
April 22, 2013

I used these April 21, 2013 at a Vancouver, British Columbia autocross event. The weather ranged from sunny to cloudy, damp to rain, and the tires stuck like glue in all of it. I was expecting them to not do great in wet conditions, but as long there is no standing water/puddles, the tires are great. They do hydroplane above 90 km/h in standing water, but I've had slightly worn all seasons that performed worse. There is a lot of tire noise at speeds below 50 km/h, but it gets less noticeable at higher speeds. The ride quality is also not great, but high noise and low ride quality is expected in a tire with capabilities as high as this one. The tread wear from autocross appears to be better than the Kumho Ecsta 4x all-seasons I used in very wet winter autocross events. I highly recommend these tires for anyone looking for a new autocross tire.

April 04, 2013

I drive my 328i to work most days, and live in Edmonton, Canada - where we can get all four seasons in an afternoon, and our winter takes its toll on everything. I bought the Michelins because they were held out to be a great combination of ride, handling, traction and wear. They replaced the rock hard run flats that came stock with the BMW - yikes... Anyways, I was very impressed with the Michelins on everything, from dry straight to twisty wet - except the ice. At anything below freezing, the Michelins turn into hockey pucks. It makes driving more fun, but less safe!!!

I would absolutely recommend these to fellow BMW drivers, but would also recommend that they look at some of the lower cost alternatives - like the Pirellis, Contis or even the Kumho Ecstas. I will likely take a look at replacing these with a 4 Season (NOT all season) tire like the Pirelli or Kumho 4S - just so long as I don't have to take a huge hit on performance. As it is, the Michelin is a fantastic "almost" all season tire, and if I lived in Europe or south of the Snow belt, I'd buy it again. Or maybe I should just move to So Cal...

Initial Review, 19,000 Miles on Tires
April 05, 2013

Not understanding all the hate for this tire. Most likely it's because they come standard on 2010 thru 2013 GTI's and drivers who never experience sub-zero temperatures and snow have no need for an A/S tire on a high-performance car. As a result, they compare this tire to either max or extreme performance summer tires.
However, comparing this tire to the Kumho ECSTA 4X A/S tires on my son's Mazda 3, I would rate them at least as equals, and probably a bit better when below zero.
Additionally, using a regular rotation period of 5k miles, these tires demonstrate fantastic wear resistance. Currently at 19k miles and less than 50% wear. Very quiet on the freeway as well. The only negative is the braking and cornering traction in the wet should be a little higher.

Well this is a pretty crappy tire. It doesn't accel in any category that I can tell. The wet traction (where it's supposed to shine) is not all that good. Neither is the dry. The noise is ---awful now that they are about 60% worn down.....all in all it's not really any good.



I'll go back to a Fuzion ZRi or BFG G-Force Sport before this again. The ONLY redeeming quality was the now gone rebate I got.



These are like the Kumho Ecsta SPT only worse in every way by a slight amount...except price...much pricier per mile.

Compared to the stock Michelin, these tires are a fantastic value... Tires are just as good in every area as the Michelin, but even better in snow/ice, overall cornering, and wet traction... only failure might be treadwear might be diminished (who cares at 1/3 the cost???)

Excellent tire dry and driven aggresively. Good tire when driving straight through rain soaked highways. Lively (slides) evenly when wet out and on entrance/exit ramps. Fairly poor with snow but this can be somewhat/largely attributed to the 235mm width. Safe travels.

Just passed 5000 miles, bought this set in lieu of the OEM Michelin Primacy, mostly due to price, but for the specs as well. Not sure what kind of ice other drivers are talking about on here, but these tires are ABSOLUTELY USELESS ON ICE. Traction control kicked in with every start and even on mild curves, during a recent snow storm I was unable to get up the slightest of hills. I got better ice traction out of a nearly bald set of tires on my Pathfinder beater (2WD) than I did with these.

Water traction is significantly better, dry traction fantastic, and tread wear excellent as well. Experienced a near collision within the first 1000 miles when a driver swung into my lane without looking, I swerved hard to the right and the tires maintained control. There is a bit of an issue with (subtle) road noise, kind of sounds like bouncing one of those large rubber balls on linoleum at the toy store, becomes more pronounced above 80 mph. Great tire overall for the money.

These tires are great so far much better then the Dunlop's that cam on my 2011 Subaru WRX. they made a huge difference in handling with an proper alignment. I am very vigorous on checking inflation rates as well. Dry weather- Hnadles excellent steering response turn-in and driver control/confidence. Wet- Handles great in my opinion drove through plarge puddles with plenty of confidence no hydroplaning in the rain now this might be bias due to the Subaru AWD system(4wheels are always in motion)But over all I like them so far and have owned several Kumho's in the past like the Ecsta and ASX. My favorite were the ASX and I really wanted the 4X this time around but didn't have the budget. So there you go if you want an inexpinsive affordable tire with great control low noise and grip in dry weather and decent in wet weather BUY THIS. If you have the extra money get the KUMHO 4X and Im sure you will be happy.

I purchased these as a year round alternative for my Saab. These tires are towards the bottom end price-wise so don't expect otherwise. They performed very well in all areas, except for winter, which was okay. Dry and even wet conditions they were better than I expected. This vehicle has had all new suspension installed. The tires seemed to harden up in the cold temps. Getting that initial "bite" to start off is where these lacked. I do have a manual transmission so it is tricky to get traction at times. I have had snow tires and know that all seasons will never be the best. With that said, they tracked okay in the snow once moving. There are better options out there for all season winter use. But after 10k, these tires still have 7/32" tread depth and should last me 40-50k.
They ride quietly and feel very solid, yet smooth. The steering response was sharp. Overall satisfied with these tires.

Great tire. Nice and quiet. Decent response. Smooth ride... I'm no crazy driver but I do once in a while like to drive fast. My first concern was about 10-11k miles in when I was driving on wet road. I was making a decent curve and right away I noticed the car was going out of control. I never had that problem with them but I guess traction was reduced already. Ever since that day, I would be super careful driving in the rain. Great in the snow. We don't get crazy snow in North Jersey but it handle pretty well. Didn't leave me stuck anywhere. The one thing I did not like was the soft sidewall. Here in NJ we some of the worse roads I driven on and these tires didn't not like it. Three of them developed bubbles due to impact. Most of the impacts weren't as bad as of the ones I hit when my old falken 912 tires. When I saw bubbles, I was really disappointed. Tire still had good amount thread left and I was force to get new tires. :( Overall, I would recommend this tire but I would be more careful while driving but in NJ that's almost impossible. I didn't like that tirerack doesn't let you buy hazard protection if the manufacture offers it. This tire offer for 1 year or 1st 2/32nd thread but I was way over. I was stuck getting new tires..

The original Nexen CP662 were surprisingly good for OEM tires, but these Kumhos are awesome. They're categorized as Ultra High Performance All Season, and they're all of that, yet they don't look like anything special. Under aggressive acceleration, wet or dry, the tires spin no more than half a revolution, then ferociously bite the pavement. The car seemingly rides on rails and the understeer threshold is much higher and more predictable. At under $90 each, they're an incredible bargain.

Ok people I am going to be straight forward as I see people complaining about this tire. Look it is pretty much the cheapest tire you will get off tire rack. If you want quailty then pay more. You get what you pay for. Overall it is a good tire. I have only put 100 miles on them so this is a glimpse and I will do another review in the furture. It performs great during the dry but have not had them in the rain yet. It does not snow too often where I live so I cannot say about its snow ability. The tire is a little loud when driving and is not the smoothest of rides. I have even babied them and its still a rough drive. I'm not the best driver so I am used to it. C'mon people its a low profile tire of course its not going to be smooth. I am just hoping I get better tread wear than the other reviews. The way I drive I am probably going to eat through the tread anyways. I think it is more of a track tire than a daily driver. It would be perfect for a car that is only driven on the weekends. Just my opinion.
