Kumho Ecsta XT KU37 Reviews

Given 91% (breakdown) while driving a Audi a3 s line (225-40-18-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 500 average miles
Only done about 500 miles on these tyres so far but I couldn't be happier. Just got sick of putting cheap Chinese tyres on my audi which is always false economy.Still getting a bit of road noise,but I still have crap tyres on the back so it's probably coming from them. Price wise they are mid range (about £75 each. Haven't found the limit of the grip yet in the dry or the wet as that's not the style I drive. Would recommend this tyre to anybody who is after value and quality.

Having bought a Golf R32 these are terrible. These were on the car from purchase, but getting to the point of pulling off for a set of Michelin PSS

Given 54% (breakdown) while driving a Porsche BOXSTER 2.7 (225-40-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 100 average miles
These were on the Boxster 2.7 from the used car dealer - previous owners choice. I have only driven around 100miles and they do not inspire any sort of feedback in steering - just hope people behind dont think I am a "granny" Wouldnt buy them myself, having had a z4 with Falken's and they were inspiring

Given 90% (breakdown) while driving a SEAT Leon Cupra R 225 (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 11,000 average miles
Great tyre for the price of £71 a corner. Instantly felt a difference in cornering stability on my Leon Cupra R, from the previous Conti's.
Not pushed hard in the wet yet, but moderate speeds are good with minimal wheelspin.
Deffo recommend as a cheaper contender to the high end tyres.

Driving on mostly country roads for 3,000 spirited miles
Car is very nervous in damp conditions, you can easily lose the front end on roundabouts. In the dry they are good. They have noticeable wear after only a couple of thousand miles, wish i hadn't been tight and bought the Uniroyal rainsport 2s I have on my Golf!

Driving on mostly town for 450 easy going miles
fitted these on and had them for about 600kms already. quieter than my previous yokohamas and comfortable as well. gives me decent feedback, probably still new. loads of confidence in straight line driving situations and will update once again as the tyre breaks in. overall great value for money and will recommend these

Driving on a combination of roads for 40,000 average miles
I have Kumho ku37 tyres fitted to the front of my Audi TT, I have covered approx 4000 miles on them with minimal tyre wear and I feel they perform every bit as well if not better than the Pirelli Pzero Rosso's they have replaced. I would definitely buy them again.
