Top Kumho Ecsta HM KH31 Review

Given 67% while driving a BMW E38 7 Series (235/60 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 20,000 spirited miles
Not a bad tyre for the price, certainly better than the Avons they replaced. Good in snow when quite new and quiet on the motorway. Just about made 20000 miles, about 7000 of that towing a car trailer to meetings. They have been driven hard and I have no real complaints. That said however I am due to replace them and on recommendation I am opting for the Nokian Z G2.

Given 57% while driving a Mercedes Benz E320 CDI (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 3,000 average miles
Fitted to E320 2004 saloon on the rear. The outside edges were bald within 3000 miles (5 months) of non heavy driving. The worst wear I have ever experienced.

Given 49% while driving a Fiat croma (215/55 R16 W) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
Very bad tires. The pattern is still good and tires looks like 1 year old but sidewalls and geometry of the tire went off. Also, the looks to much like plastic tire and do not hold well on a wet surface. They were on the car when I bought it and I was very happy when I throw them away. Never again...

Trying to pick the very best winter tyre? Watch this!
Given 77% while driving a Vauxhall (195/45 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 9,000 spirited miles
I bought 2 of this tyre about 8-10000miles ago and I'm having to replace them both now
This has nothing to do with the tyre at all I've never had 1 complaint about it yet!!
The way the tyre sticks to the road is unbelievable it helps you know the condition of the road whilst driving and throwing it about
Now even thought they haven't lasted me ages this is purely down to my driving (I'm 18 and not long been past my test) the car gets thrown into corners hard and it never even budges
I've already ordered my 2nd set and don't intend on changing till I drive another car that sticks better!!

Given 69% while driving a Peugeot 306 (195/50 R15) on a combination of roads for 20,000 spirited miles
Great tyres in the dry, and better than budgets in the wet. These lasted about 20,000 miles so not bad on the front of a peugeot 306 either. Much better than the Rikens I had before, and we shall see how they were compared to the Yokohama Paradas I have replaced them with!
