Kumho Ecsta 4X
Follow-Up Review: 17,000 miles on tires
Since last review--have used in ice/snow--frankly very poor and prompted me to buy a set of snow tires. Does sem to hydroplane quite a bit and wet performance is only fair--NO complaints with dry performance which remains excellent
Initial Review: 11,000 miles on tires
Excellent tires. If you don't believe how much difference tires make--buy this set--feels like a new car.
Roadholding/noise/wet performance overall excellent. Have not tested in snow--but feel it should do as well as an all season tire can. Was doubtful about buying a cheap korean tire--but these are a steal and far superior to the Bridgestone and Pirelli's I have had on before.
