Kumho Ecsta 4X
Initial Review: 1,000 miles on tires
October 20, 2012

Decided on these based on past experience with Kumhos and price. We are just average drivers, not spirited, but we are aware of handling. We have only 1k miles but initially the tires seems kind of floaty to me. Steering response is not immediate but adequate. These tires are VERY QUIET to us and we are extremely satisfied so far - no experience in heavy downpours or snow/ice. Only other thing I can add is that with similar Kumhos on a 2000 Miata up north, they tended to have a SET or flat spot in cold weather that would thump-thump for a while (less than a mile), before warming up in cold weather (after sitting overnight). This is probably my fifth set of Kumhos on various cars - Mazda5, Honda Accord and Miatas - never had a problem with any of them.
