Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

The Dunlop SP 7000's that came with my accord were ok for dry but were mediocre in the rain and Snow. These Kumho's are better in every aspect except road noise, the PA31 can be a little noisy on concrete highways no problems on asphalt.Turn in and stability are great for the price and definitely better than stock unless some other moderately priced...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KH25

I think this will be like voting for Carter over Reagan in 1980. Shows my age. But, here goes. These came with our 2012 KIA Optima so that makes them 3 years old Tread depth average is now 13/64 with a min of 11/64 and a max of 15/64. New was 20/64 and should easily go at least 50k+ We live were there is snow, Ohio, and it is my wife's car.She is from...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

I got these tires for the wet weather traction to deal with the Florida climate. Overall they did perform well, but I am experiencing tread separation issues on 2 of the tires. I really wanted to like these tires, and I even recommended them to some friends because my initial experience was quite good.Enjoy these terrific tires, but keep alert to any low...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

Wow! It's like driving a different car. Oe Michelins were like driving on a cloud in a bad way - absolutely no connection to the road, floating on straight sections, and huge sway/roll on corners and curves. With Kumho's, I feel connected to the road, lost the role on curves and corners, and humps in the road that used to bottom out the suspension are still...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X

VERY noisy! Can't have a conversation in the car at highway speed. They seem to be wearing fast too. Probably the worst tire I have ever had.Definitely cannot recommend this tire.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

What a great replacement for the Kumhos that came on the Elantra Touring - smooth, quiet, stable, no loss of traction on wet surfaces, and an all around great improvement!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KR21

I purchased a set of this for my wife's Blazer SUV 4x4 and these are the worst set of tires I have ever owned. The Tiger Paws that was OEM was better-replaced these at 39,000 miles with LTX M/S, those lasted until 96,000 miles (60,000 miles on those). Should have bought another set of LTX 2's. Well Be replacing them this winter will be worn out by then down...  Read More

Track & Competition DOT Tires That Should Only Be Used on the Track

Are you looking for more grip than the sticky tire options covered here? Track & Competition DOT tires give you the highest level of grip, but their lighter carcasses, shallower tread depths and gummy compounds also make them too fragile for street use. Street use will also expose them to more heat cycles eventually causing severe drops in grip level. These...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KR21

Adding my review mainly because I have read so many bad reviews for these tires on wet surfaces. I have enjoyed EXCELLENT traction in extreme Florida rain. I feel very confident traveling in a pack at a moderate rate of speed in very wet conditions and with almost as much confidence as I do when traveling in the wet at speed in my 2007 Tahoe equipped with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KR21

I'm a 67yo retired COP. Saying this I still drive lika a COP, but I am driving a Kia Sportage. Nice running veh., but not a Corvette. So far I am extremely pleased with these tires. They gave me good handling & traction in snow when living in Maryland. Now in Myrtle Beach, SC I longer think of ice & snow. Wet weather traction is great, as is highway &...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

Living in upstate New York I wanted a tire that would be good in the snow. I purchased these tires last Wednesday, they were delivered the next day and I had them mounted on Saturday. Over the last three days I have driven through driving rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow mix, moderately deep snow and slick roads. Under all of these conditions the tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Though I absolutely love these tires on my VW Passat 4Motion wagon, they are completely different story on the Avalon. This is a large front drive high output V-6 sedan with a soft suspension. They handle just like the Michelin MVX4S that came on the car. Couldn't wait to get rid of the Michelins after 40,000 miles. Steering response with the Pure Contact is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Sense

I have driven on this tire in dry, wet, and snowy conditions with both empty and fully loaded vehicle conditions. This tire has exceeded my expectations for performance in all areas. I push my Neon fairly hard everywhere that I drive it and these tires have been great at inspiring confidence in turns, acceleration, and hard braking.The Kumho Sense is a great...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

I just purchased these are instantly noticed the upgrade over my cars OEM tires. Fantastic upgrade in my opinion, though im still in the break-in period so another update will soon follow. however good price was a huge factor in picking this wheel along side the surveys and reviews of the wheels from others sites.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Purchased the Pilot A/S 3 91V-rated to replace ContiPro Contact SSR 91H run flats. I carry a spare in the trunk.Conti lasted about 25-30k and were gone. Run flats give you piece of mind but they were noisier than Pilot - I noticed it from the beginning I installed these on. Pilots are also provide a softer ride over small bumps and anomalies on a road; Conti...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X

Great tires in both dry and wet conditions. Much much better than the OEM Bridgestone Potenza. This is my second set of Kumho tires on this car. The first set lasted over 40,000 miles. This one has 25,000 so far but I don't see it going to more than 28,000. That's been disappointing since I expected these to last close to 40,000 miles. I'd recommend these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Actually with a few miles on the car they are perfect. But my main concern is treadwear, after trying a set of sumitomo and kumho ectsa 4x, both last close 2 years(30 000 miles). I hope to go for 3 years with these DWS Next review in the summer 2015.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

I really must be honest, I was never a fan of Kumho tires.....since I was not sure where our local tire sellers bought the brand from and especially the mileage was extremely poor. However, I decided to give the brand a chance, since Tire Rack and myself have such a wonderful relationship. I must really say.......I am impressed. Our Roads in Antigua &...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy Alpin PA3 ZP

Great tires! There is slight tire noise at low speeds but dry and wet traction is very good. Snow and ice traction is excellent compared to brand new Kumho 4X I had on the car last winter that made driving scary even on just wet roads. Also getting a much more comfortable ride compared to the Kumho. I use my Mini as my daily beater and im glad I found tires...  Read More
