The Ecowing ES01 KH27 is the fuel-saving tyre for a new generation. Developed using an environmentally friendly, HA oil free compound, the Ecowing KH27 offers a greater level of rolling resistance as well as 5.1% better fuel economy than the standard equivalent*

There is no doubt that the Ecowing ES01 KH27 will save you money in the long run and also help save the environment. In fact, Kumho are so passionate about this product that when you buy an Ecowing tyre, our environmental partner, Greenfleet, will plant a native tree right here in Australia#

*Fuel savings of up to 5.1% for Kumho ES01 KH27 tyres as compared with conventional Kumho steel belted radials. In 2013 testing conducted by Kumho Tyre Australia and independently observed by Sydney's North Shore Sporting Car Club, the Ecowing ES01 KH27 was found to provide a fuel advantage of 5.1% against a silica compound Kumho KH17 tyre. Fuel savings are due to decreased rolling resistance. Based on Australian Bureau of Statistics data, the average vehicle consumption in Australia is currently 13.8L/100km. Kumho Ecowing ES01 KH27 could reduce the average Australian fuel consumption  by 0.078L/100km, saving 106.2L of fuel each year, based on travelling 15,000km p.a., or more than $160 per car (based on average fuel price of $1.51/L).

Grips the road hugs the line!
Tyres grip the bitumen and roll smoothly. The difference in cornering is tight and secure.

Good grip on wet roads and very quiet
I purchased four Kumho Ecowing ES01 KH27 205/60R15 91V for $357 on tyresales.com.au. several weeks ago. They are quiet, have good grip on wet roads, and feel very stable. I can t comment on the whether they improve my car s fuel economy till I ve driven them some more. However, for $357, I am quite happy with their performance so far.

Wears too quickly
These tyres were put on a Chrysler Grand Voyager. The car handled well on city and country driving. They were quiet but the outer edge wore down after 20,000 kms, possibly due to a wheel alignment problem, but we haven t hit any kerbs so I doubt that should have occurred. Kumho took no ownership of the issue so we replaced all 4 with another tyre.

Cheap to buy...quiet and grippy!
Can t say yet for durability for the Ecowing tyre so far but I have 10 cars (from prestige to peasant!) and 8 so far have all been re shod with Kumhos! ( 8 so far ...all Citroens as the original Michelin run out plus one Ssangyong Musso!)..They have all been totally awesome and much cheaper quieter and more durable (more mileage!) than the recommended Michelin s! Ecowing on my 2001 Xsara Picasso here in Western Australia with our course aggregate roads have proven to be really quiet, compliant and grippy...we haven t had a lot of wet weather since I had them fitted but they feel as competent as the Kumho Majesties I had fitted to my C6 for sure! On my Xsara Picasso I expect them to be as reliable as all of the Kumho tyres I have on my other cars! I have to say that I am a Kumho convert for sure....they are just a great tyre! Even after 10 years of buying them I can t actually talk about their standards of customer service when things go wrong because I haven t had to deal with them! Not a failure ever!!! ( I live in Rural WA and I do lots of miles every year!)

First contact: good. Further testing necessary.
Just had them fitted on my car to replace horrible Yokohamas. They are ecofriendly and promise to save fuel. First impression on dry road was very positive. Need to check them on wet.
