How Good Are Kumho Ecsta Tires?

Many drivers have heard of Kumho tires since they've been sold in the United States for over ten years. If you have not considered Kumho tires in the past, you may want to take another look at them now. While Kumho does make some entry-level tires that compete on price, they also manufacture tires that compete with some of the top tires on the market.

Much like the name "Pilot" on a Michelin tire or "Eagle" on a Goodyear tire, the name "Ecsta" on a Kumho tire identifies it as one of their performance oriented tires. There is no one Kumho Ecsta tire, instead there's a family of tires that have the Ecsta name on them. Two of the best performance tires in the Kumho Ecsta line are the all-season Kumho Ecsta 4X and summer Ecsta LE Sport

If you aren't looking for an ultra high performance tire and instead want long treadlife and a quiet, soft ride, check out the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum. To see how this tire could work for you, read "Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum vs. Kumho Ecsta 4X."

All three of these tires rate highly in their categories and performed competitively in our testing, all while still being reasonably priced. So, are Kumho Ecsta tires good? Absolutely!

Hello Gary
I'm just a bit away from replacing my tires with Ecsta 4X.
but got a qeustion.
which one is better between Kumho Ecsta 4X and Hankook S1 noble2?
Both of them have good test result in UHP all season tire.

Both are great choices, but I would expect a bit longer wear and slightly softer ride out of the Hankook S1 Noble2 compared to the Kumho ECSTA 4X.
