Kumho Ecsta ASX
Initial Review: 6,000 miles on tires
February 03, 2012

I bought these tires slightly shorter for my 26 yr old bone stock GT so I could autocross and still drive them all over. They are not a race tire but they are a competent tire in all regards and real bang for the buck. I still have 1/2 tread left with no chunking in FL xcross heat and great hook up in rain. I can beat alot of new cars with these tires and the better gear ratio they give me. I got an extra set of factory rims and mounted new RS3 Hankooks for serious racing with 45 series tires Wow. BUT when we want to take a trip back on go the Kuhmo ASX's for another happy ride at 75-80 all day long with never a whimper. Great all around tires. They ride and handle way better than the Firestone 60 series that came on the car. Very pleased. Will be getting a set of these for the 93 Crown Vic next year.
