Top Kumho Ecsta XS KU36 Review

Given 83% while driving a Ford falcon xr6 turbo ute (255/40 R17) on a combination of roads for 14,000 spirited miles
Noisy, dry grip is outstanding, wet grip is nearly as good as dry. Braking and turn in have to be felt to be believed. Would buy again, but I like trying different brands.

Given 51% while driving a Ford 420bhp Focus RS Mk2 (235/40 R19) on a combination of roads for 7,000 spirited miles
Good tire if the intend is track use and driven on the road very rarely.
Day to day these tires have driven me crazy with the level of noise and terrible feel the car has. They grip okay but not brilliant. Cannot wait to remove them off my car!!

Given 80% while driving a SEAT Exeo ST (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 5,000 average miles
This is a semi-slick tire so people buy it for its grip. The grip is there and once warmed up this tire has a lot of it. This is a hard tire with solid shoulders inspiring a lot of confidence in the corners. The steering feel is not very good. There is a dead-spot on center which is really annoying and then the steering improves as you increase the angle of attack but it is never as good as I want it to be. Dunlop and Pirelli in its class are far better it terms of response and feel.
The noise is bearable for now let see if becomes more noisy as it wears and so is the ride quality a little firm but what do you expect its a semi slick.
The tire feels exactly as a good budget tire - well priced and offers 70-80 percent of the quality of the top names in its class but does not feel as an outstanding product which you got on a bargain.
