Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta STX KL12

I have been very happy with these tires. Wet traction had been a concern with my old tires (don't even remember what brand they were) and these are significantly better and have not slipped or hydroplaned at all. I haven't driven them on snow or ice--hey it's Alabama--we just wait a few hours for it to melt. The sound level has gotten a little louder now...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PS91

I changed the stock Continental ContiSport tires on my A3 Sedan at around 2,000 miles since I was unhappy with the grip they had, the car would just wheelspin all the time, triggering traction control, and on turns the car would push excessively on corner entry. After deciding many different options looking at forums and friends' advice, I decided to go with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA71

Bought 4 Kuhmo tires for spouse's Accord and was pleasantly surprised how good they are performing (Ecsta PA 31) so I went back for more Kuhmo's for my daughter's Chevy Cruze. Installed set of 4 Kuhmo Solas TA-71's for her 2014 Chevy Cruze 2LT. Amazing to hear and feel the difference from the OEM Continental ProContacts to the Kuhmo's. Tires feel solid and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

While I have just recently had the tires installed I have found them to be very good and better than the Continentals that came with the car. So far all aspects of the tire have been better that the original tires and I would not hesitate to purchase them again. I did have a minor vibration issue and found that the shop that installed the tires did not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Road Venture AT51

This was my first set. I lifted my Cherokee and added fender flares. I have missed one rotation and still have gotten 60,000 miles + out of them. I got my Wrangler so this became my Mrs. vehicle now and I feel she is safe! So does she! Living in the Eastern Sierras, they are well responsive in snow, ice, and both un-plowed & plowed roads. Rock climbing is a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

I drive mostly highway (averaging 100 miles a day) commuting from home to work. I reached the 12000 mile mark since buying them about 5 months ago, and noticed the road noise becoming more and more unbearable. I have the radio on between 15 and 20 (max is 40) and the tires still drown out the music. When first mounted, the tires were quiet and very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

This is my second set of these tires on 2 different cars. The first was an AWD Volvo wagon and they were fantastic in all weather. This is my second set this time on a nearly new Mazda 6. The Mazda 6 comes with hard riding noisy Dunlop tires. At 18000 miles I hit some road debris and damaged 2 beyond repair. I insist on 4 matching tires so my choices were to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Road Venture AT51

Have had these tires for a few months and so far I'm very happy. I like the look of these tires and they have provided perfect traction in multiple on/off road conditions. I can't comment on tread wear as I have only put around 5,000 miles on them, but they are shaping up to be a great value! Would definitely buy again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

This tire is the Bee's knees! The stock Kumho's were trash, didn't last very long and did awful if there was anything but pavement under them. This are very responsive, smooth, and great traction in wet conditions. I've only had a couple days on light snow and ice, but didn't have any slippage yet. Makes my car fun to drive again! Also can't beat the price.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Just replaced my worn Kumho tires with these based on good experience with Continental tires previously and good overall ratings. Find these tires very loud compared to my previous tires on my 08 Prius. Haven't had snow yet so I'm not sure how they will perform but I am quite disappointed in the extra road noise.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z III

Okay, I decided to give a shot on this Sumitomo tires after reading reviews and watching TR comparison vid. Prior to these tires, I had Kumho Eczta and Falken Azenis. These were quite similar w/ Falken having a slightly performance edge. These are also about 40% more expensive than the Sumitomo. The bad news first: Although in the video comparison, TR says...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I commute 180-190 miles per day mostly on interstate under mix of all seasonal conditions and frequent sudden turns and hard braking to avoid sudden traffic stops. I am very pleased with these tires and their performance. Wear is outstanding. I'm at 65K and can still read the snow S on tread. I've actually been considering running through another winter due...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred

Tires were bought and put on my wife's car but I drive most of the time. These tires are so much more comfortable than the factory tires (Kumho). The ride is quite and so smooth it seems like we bought a new car. They were a little more expensive than tires we could have purchased but we felt confident they would provide us with everything we were looking...  Read More

New tire, recent install. Awesome in the snow.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA71

My 2013 Dodge Dart came with Kumho KH16 from factory (205/55/16) brand new when I purchased the car in 2014 it had 13,000. 2 years later those tires lasted me to about 56,000 Miles. After doing my own research and chatting with Tire Rack online, I went ahead purchased these Kumho TA71 over the General Altimax RT43 and I believe I made the best decision. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X

Ive had this current set of tires on my car for only 23,000 miles or less. I am not a very aggressive driver and only put about 15 miles per day with the occasional highway road trip. within the past 6 weeks, Ive had 3 different tires blowout on me. all interior sidewall with exposed wire framing. Discount tire tells me, oh this is normal wear and tear BS....  Read More

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 Solus TA71

I just purchased this tire after the terrible experience of ContiProContact. The Contis were extremely noisy and a very uncomfortable ride. I literally hated driving. I was torn between the Conti Extreme Contacts, General Altimax and the Kumhos. My wife's Lexus has the ContiPureContacts and they are really a good tire. Very quiet and smooth. So I was torn on...  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
