New Ultra High Performance All-Season Tire from Kumho

Kumho Ecsta 4XThis fall, I had the pleasure of testing Kumho's newest Ultra High Performance All-Season tire. This tire, dubbed the Ecsta 4X, tested very well and was a favorite of the staff here at Tire Rack. Despite having a fair amount of biting edges for snow traction, this tire turned blistering fast times in our dry and wet track testing. 

Take a look at highlights from our Tire Test Results:

Kumho Ecsta 4X (Ultra High Performance All-Season 225/45R17 94W)

  • What We Liked: Immediate steering response and impressive grip
  • What We'd Improve: A small improvement in ride comfort
  • Conclusion: A very good choice for drivers who want a nimble handling tire
  • Latest Test Rank: 1st
  • Previous Test Rank: Not previously tested
What's equally impressive as the tire's performance is its incredible value. Despite being one of our best performing Ultra High Performance All-Season tires, the Ecsta 4X is priced considerably less than the majority of its competition.
