Smart Forfour Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Kumho Ecsta KU39 given 90% (205-45-16-W)
Driving on mostly country roads for 1000 average miles
Premium tyres at mid range prices. Pleasantly surprised how good these tyres are, replacing a set of Continental EcoContacts. Handles very well in the dry, turn in is much sharper than the Contis, making the vehicle much more nimble, yet comfort and noise is outstanding, absorbs bumps very well considering these are 45 profile ultra performance tyres, with very little road roar compared with the Contis, it transformed the whole character of the car. Wear rate should be good at 280. Sporty looking tread pattern, with squared off shoulders. Haven't had much chance to test them properly in the wet yet. I would definitely buy these again.

Writing about the Continental Eco Contact 5 given 63% (205-45-16-H)
Driving on a combination of roads for 29 easy going miles
Very average tyres, grips ok both in dry and wet, atrocious in snow or low temperature. However is quite hardwearing (30,000 miles) at the expense of comfort and noise. There are better and cheaper tyres, so will not recommend.
