Tyre Test Highlights

2015 AMS Performance Tyre Test - 9th of 9 tyres

  • Positive - Short braking distance on dry roads
  • Negative - Poor resistance to aquaplaning, poor dry handling, high rolling resistance

2013 Auto Review Performance Summer Tyre Test - 9th of 9 tyres

  • Positive - High resistance to aquaplaning, low rolling resistance, price
  • Negative - Grip on wet and dry roads, handling on wet and dry roads
  • Overall - The Kumho Ecsta LE Sport is most disappointing on wet roads. This applies to the braking, and the reactions to the actions of the wheel. Dry running isn't much better, with poor high speed stability. Good resistance to aquaplaning gives the Kumho some plus points.

Top Kumho Ecsta LE Sport Review

Given 79% (breakdown) while driving a Audi A6 Avant 2.0TDI (225/50 R17 W) on mostly country roads for 50,000 average miles
Bought these to replace the Conti Sport Contacts which were OEM fitments and the only real differences for "normal" driving are that the Kuhmo's are cheaper and last longer so overall much better value

Given 44% (breakdown) while driving a Mercedes Benz E250CDI Coupe Automatic (235/40 R18 W) on mostly motorways for 30 easy going miles
I have just changed the Kumho tyres after 2 years and 30k the rear didn’t last quite as long as the front, being a rear wheel drive car. Generally an average tyre that doesn’t perform beyond expectations. The front pair, changed today for Firestone’s, had 3.5 mm left but were castellated and we’re becoming noisy. It is only now with the Firestone’s that I notice the difference. The drive now is quieter, smoother and the steering is lighter.
The Kumhos were £90 each fitted, I wouldn’t buy them again as there are better tyres for the same money or a few quid more (Firestones £100 fitted): I suppose getting 30k I shouldn’t knock them but I don’t drive with too much enthusiasm so I can’t really rate wet and dry performance and I would expect that sort of mileage from any tyre.

Given 93% (breakdown) while driving a Alfa Romeo 1.9 JTD M (215/45 R17 W) on mostly country roads for 30,000 average miles
I have these tyres for my Alfa Romeo 147 1.9 JTD. I bought them one year ago and i'm very happy with them. Why? Well... The tyres are quiet. A lot of grip. And the wear is good. Some people in this review complain about the grip that its not good. I have a message for you; If i drive around 200km/h and i go from left to right, the tyres give you a safe feeling couse i never slipped out of the corner. The same with rain; No unsafe feeling if you go speeding on a corner.

I have these tyres for 50.000km(!) and still a profile on it. Mayby i can reach the 60.000km with it. And i drive most of all sportive. Earlyer i have Toyo Proxes T1R and i driven 15.000 - 20.000km and the tyres are completley gone!!

I want to buy them again for sure!

Given 40% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Fiesta Zetec S (225/45 R17 W) on mostly motorways for 9,000 average miles
Do not buy, grip lasted for around 2000 miles on a Ford Fiesta Ecoboost, Not good on wet road, or slippy conditions, just caused me to slide into a parked car causing ££££ of damage to mine and theirs! Emergency braking results in skidding even on dry roads. Not sure how this tyre is even allowed on the market!! previous set were budget tyres and had greater performance on the road. Would rather spend the extra money and get some decent branded tyres next time.
