Kumho Ecsta LE Sport
Follow-Up Review: 11,000 miles on tires
Dry traction is still good. The tires have gotten noticeably louder and steering response is still soft. Unfortunately, one tire went flat on the freeway and developed sidewall bulges as a result; this may have been due to the valve stem (i.e. not the tire's fault), but I don't know for sure. Tread would probably have lasted until around 20,000 with proper rotation, more or less as you'd expect with a softer summer tire.
Initial Review: 1,500 miles on tires
Good ride quality and low road noise, slightly number steering feel. Can't comment on treadwear or inclement weather performance yet.
