Top Kumho Ecowing ES01 KH27 Review

Given 75% while driving a Mazda mx 5 (185/60 R14 R) on mostly country roads for 6,000 spirited miles
Only just got these tyres a few days ago, so I can't speak for some of the categories.
Initial impression is very good, its been chucking it down since I got the tyres fitted and the wet grip is much much better than with the previous set of Conti's.
Its quieter and smoother with a nice amount of feedback.

So far well worth the change.

Given 10% while driving a Honda Stream (205/55 R17) on a combination of roads for 10,000 easy going miles
I had a pair of these put on the front of a front wheel drive Honda stream, they seemed ok so got some put on the back when needed. These are the worst tyre I have ever had. The back end slips on slightest corners, roundabouts, etc. and this is at normal speeds and even in dry conditions - you can hear them screech when it is dry. They were so bad I took them off the back, this is the only time I have ever taken a tyre off, and I have had some rubbish in my time! They are ok on the front, and seem to grip where they are pointed, but for the back have no lateral grip whatsoever. They start to split in the tread too as they wear.

I have had Bridgestone Turanza (very average, not great) Goodyear efficient grip, and Landsail LS388 (don't knock them until you have tried them), and both of the Goodyear and Landsail stick to the road at all times, but the Goodyear don't last too long on the front.

Given 86% while driving a Peugeot 106 s16 (185/55 R14) on a combination of roads for 1,000 spirited miles
Overall very very pleased with these tires. Used BF Goodrich and Toyo previously and both were just horrible in the rain as well as thread wear. These feel like a much more expensive/premium tire. Will fit them on more vehicles. Congrats for this quality.

Given 91% while driving a Toyota Corona (195/65 R15) on mostly country roads for 50,000 spirited miles
very good tyres on Toyota fielder. I have done 50,00km but still have some threat to roll on. Weaker Sidewall for the Kenyan roads king-potholes. generally they are very good tyres. good value for money.
