Latest Tyre Test Results

2013 Auto Review Sports SUV Summer Test - 10th of 11 tyres

  • Overall - The Kumho has poor wet grip, both in traction and cornering, but the good news is the car still remains predictable. In the dry this predictability disappears, with the Porsche often falling into long slides which are difficult to predict. Poor comfort and noise, combined with the worst rolling resistance give you plenty of reasons to avoid this tyre for powerful 4x4s.

Latest Kumho Ecsta X3 KL17 ASYMMETRIC Reviews

Given 84% while driving a Land Rover Range Rover P38 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 150 spirited miles
Just purchased two new for the front of my Range P38. The car was originally running on Scorpion ST's but they are now no longer produced and the newer model Scorpions didn't look as good for the money. Paid £165 for two and thus far feel good. The weather and driving conditions have been hot (30 degrees) but so far so good. Well worth the money and feel more responsive than the Scorpions that have just been removed.

I will update more as I use these tyres as I think they are a bargain for the money

Good tire so far but they are a little noise on bumpy roads and I just had my first experience on Snow and Ice. Which they performed fairly well but did slip a few times and on Icey hills it doesn't do so well.
