Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KH25

Stock tires that came with vehicle, we purchased the car 10,000 miles ago so we pretty much got the short end of the stick with the tires. But based off on 38,000 miles, they are worn down to the bone, literally hovering around 2/32. My girlfriend and I drive like bats out of -------- sometimes but mostly it's cruising and high end speeds on the expressway....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta ASX

I bought the Kumho Ecsta ASX as a winter tire replacement for the summer tires that came on my car. I am very impressed with the Kumhos. These are a great tire for the money! Handling is great, snow traction is decent, and ride noise is very low. I may keep them on my car all year long. I would recommend them.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

For 85% of driving this tire is fine, but if you want to drive more spirited, be forewarned. You can feel the flex of the sidewall entering curves...so in a sense you steer left or right and you can feel the load shift on the tire, then the steering input takes effect. Not confidence inspiring. These replaced Goodyear OEM RS-A's. They had a much lower...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

These tires are awesome and very affordable, I replaced my old Good Year Assurance tires with these and I cannot be more satisfied. This may sound crazy but these tires in my personal opinion are way better that the Good Year Assurance tires If you are thinking about these, there is no way to go wrong. Look at the reviews and you will see why   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

I was looking for an affordable set of tires for our Jetta. The Kumho was recommended by my mechanic and even though they were less than $300 a set I took a chance and ordered them. The results blew me away! Quiet, comfortable and excellent handling in extreme wet conditions! I drove home through a major rain storm and the car was stable, steady and on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Road Venture AT51

Got these tires for a road trip from south Florida to Montana at Christmas. drove thru heavy rain, light snow, deep snow, and ice. some grades at 7 percent uphill and down hill , these never failed me and my sons. got to Missoula Mt. a day early to surprise mom on Christmas morning. The best was seeing Subarus and other vehicles in ditches all around us, we...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Bought these as replacements for the OEM Kumhos that came with my car... The Kumhos were ok as long as it wasn't too wet out. They were horrible in the snow... but these Continental PureContacts were very highly rated and that turned out to be true.This is a fantastic tire - great traction in the rain and light snow... and quiet as well. These are a bargain...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

I rarely write reviews, but felt compelled to do so for this tire.Just replaced my Ecsta Platinums with another set after 61K miles! I've rarely gotten more than 40K out of a set of tires before they started having problems - and never remember over 50K. 95% highway miles - and while I'm not aggressive with the tires, I'm no Sunday driver either. Rotated...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

BEST SUMMER TIRES EVER. Save yourself the time and just buy them. I've had Kumho, Sumitomo, Goodyear, Pirelli, Bridgestone and a lot of the Michelin's before the PS4. The PS4's are light years ahead. Unbelievable traction in all conditions, even at the limits. Yet somehow they are super quiet and the ride quality is amazing. Soft, supple even. I have them on...  Read More

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
