Kumho Ecsta LE Sport
Initial Review: 5,000 miles on tires
March 21, 2012

What a difference from what the factory put on this car a 2010 Scion XB. The car has 44,000 miles for the first set which is good. This is checking the air once a month and rotating every, oil change which is 5000 miles. The original set of Dunlop's always felt mushy. Gas mileage was ok with the Dunlop's 27-29. As for the new set of Kumho Ecsta LE Sports 205/55/R16 summer performance tires. This is not a Hi -performance street car but these tires make it handle like it was. They give a firm feel but not a harsh ride. They have a speed rating of 186mph we will never see that but it is good to know we are safe. We have put over 5000 miles on them and the mileage has improved to 32 and the feel is very sure footed in dry and rain. We are so happy we are purchasing a set for our Chevy Van, and street /strip 600 HP Supercharged 93 Mustang. Great tires for the price.
