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 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 Ecsta PA31

I was surprised at how well this tires performed, particularly in winter conditions. This was the first all season tire I have used in the winter in quite some time. Before I had always put on dedicated winter tires. I was very pleased with the way this tire handles slush, snow and ice. The ride in dry conditions is also very quiet and comfortable with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

These tires replaced a set of Michelin MXV tires. They have excellent traction and adhesion in the rain. Good traction in the snow as well. An excellent value for the money, especially considering they cost almost half what the Michelins cost.   Read More

Kumho Ecsta 4X Replaced by New Ecsta 4X II

Many drivers haven't heard of Kumho tires even though they've been sold in the United States for over ten years. If you're shopping for a great value on a performance all-season tire and haven't researched Kumho tires because the brand name seems unfamiliar, you definitely need to reconsider.   Tires like the Ecsta 4X have proven that Kumho manufactures high...  Read More

Kumho's Ecsta V720 is SCCA Eligible

SCCA rules require that tires used in stock classes be available in at least six sizes across four rim diameters by April 30th to be approved for competition. The Kumho Ecsta V720, which had very few sizes available when I wrote "Best Autocross Tires for 2015", made it just in time when Kumho delivered six sizes that span 15" through 18" rim diameters. Kumh...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

Generally a nice tire but very noisy on my Mazda. Louder than any snow tire I've had including the General Altimax used for 3 consecutive winters.Had tires rebalanced and alignment done.I like the comfort for its class. But the noise is intolerable. One tire was returned for a defect that made handling scary. I can't recommend the tire.   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 Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

I couldn't believe the performance for the price. So I did all the comparisons and took a chance. I was excited to see my favorite tire shop accepting shipments and that sealed it. Great service all the way around. The drive home was fantastic. New Shoes!!!   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 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 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 Kumho Ecsta PA31

This tire is sold as an all season tire, but it really isn't met to see a lot of snow. It's supposed to be a sporty tire for luxury sport coupes, etc. I have Honda Fit wheels on my civic and unfortunately when I went looking for a summer tires (I have winter tires on my other set of rims), there weren't any in the oem size that I wanted. I purchased these,...  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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

Mostly bought these tire for the winter due to the summer tires my car came with. It came a ice storm and I got the kumhos in that same day and wow what a difference. The tire preformed well even though I was worried about how much torque the car puts out due to the turbo. Definitely would recommended.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

I love this tire, this is the second set of NEW tires I purchased the first one were these Toyos witch were supposed to have been all season but they were really bad in the snow so I got these Kumho tires and I got to tell you it is like night and day, it is very good in the snow for a NON snow tire, it is quite and smooth. I only put about 100 miles on it...  Read More
