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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I commute 180-190 miles per day mostly on interstate under mix of all seasonal conditions and frequent sudden turns and hard braking to avoid sudden traffic stops. I am very pleased with these tires and their performance. Wear is outstanding. I'm at 65K and can still read the snow S on tread. I've actually been considering running through another winter due...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred

Tires were bought and put on my wife's car but I drive most of the time. These tires are so much more comfortable than the factory tires (Kumho). The ride is quite and so smooth it seems like we bought a new car. They were a little more expensive than tires we could have purchased but we felt confident they would provide us with everything we were looking...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Road Venture AT51

New tire, recent install. Awesome in the snow.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA71

My 2013 Dodge Dart came with Kumho KH16 from factory (205/55/16) brand new when I purchased the car in 2014 it had 13,000. 2 years later those tires lasted me to about 56,000 Miles. After doing my own research and chatting with Tire Rack online, I went ahead purchased these Kumho TA71 over the General Altimax RT43 and I believe I made the best decision. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X

Ive had this current set of tires on my car for only 23,000 miles or less. I am not a very aggressive driver and only put about 15 miles per day with the occasional highway road trip. within the past 6 weeks, Ive had 3 different tires blowout on me. all interior sidewall with exposed wire framing. Discount tire tells me, oh this is normal wear and tear BS....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PS31

With a thousand miles I'm still enamored that all tires match. I purchased the car with 17,669 miles on it along with Dunlop's on the fronts and Bridgestone on the rears. Fronts probably original, rears replaced. Had some curb rash repaired, the rims refinished and tires mounted at the same place for under $800.00. So far I've been on the LA frwys on 100...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA71

I just purchased this tire after the terrible experience of ContiProContact. The Contis were extremely noisy and a very uncomfortable ride. I literally hated driving. I was torn between the Conti Extreme Contacts, General Altimax and the Kumhos. My wife's Lexus has the ContiPureContacts and they are really a good tire. Very quiet and smooth. So I was torn on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LE Sport

Have this tire replace the oem P zero nero at 14000 miles, which is very noise! This Kumho is much better on noise level as well as performance compare to these OEM. I go for a plus size 215/40-17 instead of the stock size. On Tire Rack, these tire will not fit the Fiat Abarth or any other 500. But they do fit without rubbing on a stock rim. These tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

this tire honestly exceeded my expectations for it. Dry traction is outstanding, the only way to ever get them to break free of the pavment is to punch the throttle hard from a dead stop and even then a couple chirps of skidding rubber and there stuck to the ground again.The Wet traction is way better then I had expected from such a summer looking tread...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA31

The tires only have 4200 miles on them. I have been to the poconos 4 times. The tires hold the road. Steering is great. My ride is firm. No Sway. Took speeds to 120 mph. The turnpike was all new roads and speed limit was 70 mph. Nice ride at highway speeds on the new roads.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA71

These tires are fantastic. They replaced the original Michelins that lasted 65,000 miles and could have gone a few thousand more. The Kumho TA-71 seem to handle as well or better, but the big difference is the reduced noise level. The Michelins were good, but being a Honda it does pick up road noise more than a lot of other cars. Problem solved. One small...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PS91

Exceptional grip in all conditions. Compared to the original F1 Supercars that came on the 1LE, these PS91s offer improved traction when accelerating and cornering and they don't turn into water skis as soon as the road gets damp. At 7,000 miles, I estimate that these tires will easily make it to 15k (the original F1s made it 11k). I can verify that the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Radial 857

These tires de-laminated in less than 2000 miles < 2 years. Sidewall separation.. 19' trav. trailer <3000 GVW. Stored indoors. Fortunately I caught it before total failure.. Unfortunately, it's the only 14 load range D tire I could find. If possible, I would steer clear of these. Some searching found this to be a common failure.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A

Excellent set of tires as compared to Kumho Solus(uneven wear after 25,000 miles)) and General Altimax(uneven wear and quality decline after 20,000 miles). Plenty of tread even at 65,000 miles and decided to get new tires(Michelin Premier) as road noise was becoming apparent(beginning of tire being compromised).   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KL21

Yes even though most tire stores in Colorado by where I live told me to not put Kumho Tires on none of them knew I worked in the tire store / auto repair industry for almost 30 years. These tires are awesome on my vehicle!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

I love this tire ... on this car. It's actually my wife's car, but since she doesn't commute anymore, it's there for both of us. The OEM tires survived for about 50k miles, but they were puncture magnets and finally, when I found a screw imbeded in the tread about an inch from a previous plug, I decided to swap them out. I have to admit I chose the Kumhos...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA71

I purchased these tire mainly on the past reviews that were good the price was fantastic for these tires I would definitely purchase them in the future   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

My first set of the KUMHO ECSTA 4X II's got me about 38K miles before I replaced them and at that point the tread was basically gone off of at least two tires. That being said, they're inexpensive and when they're new they perform wonderfully. I bought a 2nd set and I may drive a little less spiritedly to see if I can get more life out of them.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

The Kuhmo's have been a pleasant surprise. Excellent road manners, very quiet compared to Goodyear, Sumi's & BFg's. Side wall has some give but predictable. Dry traction is excellent while wet traction is comparable. Very pleased would definately buy again for the SS depending upon durability, time will tell. Kuhmo's have come a long way since my first set...  Read More
