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 Solus KR21

Very impressive performance in rain and light snow. Far better than the OE General tires, or the first set of BFG replacement tires on my Caprice Wagon. After 12,000 miles there is hardly any visible wear and no noticeable change in ride quality or performance. I will not hesitate to purchase these tires again.   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

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 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 Kumho Solus KH25

OEM tire. These tires seem to transmit every crack in the pavement and howl like banshees. I thought they were acceptable at first until about 10,000 miles. At the first tire rotation they showed noticeable wear. At 20,000 we rotated again. The rear tires now on the front show strange wear patterns, feathering and cupping, and now howling more loudly than...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KR21

I have had these tires for only 2000 miles and though just broken in, they have performed as good as and possibly better than expected. They are much quieter than I expected. In this short time, I've experienced3 snow events and 1 ice event and am extremely impressed with their performance under some trying conditions. They are VERY much better than the...  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 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 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 Road Venture SAT KL61

I don't understand all the negative reviews for this tire. I have driven over 20,000 miles on these tires and they have performed flawlessly. By the looks of the tread I should get a least 50K on the set. I would definitely buy another set but I understand Kumho has discontinued this tire. Great looking tire at a reasonable price.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Road Venture MT KL71

I bought these tires for my 1500 chevy. I hunt and fish all over the country side. I live in the north east and winter is about to start so we'll see how they do. They work flawlessly in the mud. Had them in 12 plus inches and went through in 2 wheel drive. There is road noise but that is to be expected with a Mud tire such as these. I rotate them every oil...  Read More
