Great Tyres from Kumho
Previously I’ve had tyres that wear and puncture very easily. These tyres were recommended by Our favourite tyre dealer in town - Murphy’s Tyre Power. So far very happy with the tyres!????

Kumho Ecsta KU 22
I have now bought these same tyres 3 times. They wear very well, are quite on the road and grip well under all conditions. The big advantage is these tyres are load rated which is ideal when carrying loads on my ute.These tyres are very reasonable in price as well. I have no hesitation in recommending these tyres. Kmart tyre and auto price matched and fitted these tyres. Overall I'm very happy with the service I received. I will be back.

Good grip in most situations, 3-6 month wear time max
Although these are sometimes on excellent special prices, these tyres simply do not last long enough to be good value (fitted to a 2009 VE Commodore). The grip in wet and dry great, silent on highways, handle great. But they are a soft compound and compared to closely priced Bridgstones RE92, they get half the lifespand for identical driving conditions. The grip, noise and handling of the Bridgstones is better in most scenarios. 10+ years ago I used to run dunlop exclusively on my cars, they too also had a very soft compound. For modern, heavy cars, I don t recommend these tyres. They wear out too fast. For older, lighter cars, the softer compound offers grip and handling these cars would have never had previously.

Cant fault these tyres
4/ 205-50-17 fitted to Mazda 3 SP23 and now needing replacement after 70,000K s suburban driving! Rotated regularly through KTAS tyre plan. They replaced Dunlops after fed up with tyre noise and the Kumhos cut the noise with no noticeable loss off handling. Great mileage!

Good tyres
I got more than 60000 out of these tyres on a combined highway, city and mountain driving. Had two puncture - a sharp rock piercing and a 5 inch screw (yes, it was huge and no, I didn t see it on the road!). Is slightly higher on the road noise level, but has provided excellent traction everytime I ve needed it.

Great set of tyres
The tyres are extremely durable after 1 year of moderate usage. Performance has been slightly poorer than previous Goodyear tyres though. On road noise, especially when on the freeway is quite low. Be sure to rotate the tyres though as I found out with my previous set on a Nissan 350Z!

Second generation Kumho ECSTA 4X II (KU22) - best tyres ever bought!
I bought the second generation ECSTA 4x II for my BA Falcon and they are by far the best tyres I have ever used. Note, these are the updated version of the original ECSTA 4x. Kumho website stated that the second generation ECSTA 4x II has a much improved tread life than the original ECSTA 4x as well as better wet handling. Spot on. I have traveled 25,000 kms to date with minimal wear. Car is driven aggressively and weighs 1.7 tonnes, so this is a amazing result compared to the many other brands I have tried over the past many years. Over the years I have tried many different brands, including other Korean, Taiwanese, Japanese and even premium European (made in China) brands. The Kumhos are perfect even in the wet (anyone who has driven a Falcon knows how important rear-wheel traction is in the wet, especially on corners and roundabouts). They drive very smooth, are quiet on the freeway, grip very well in sharp corners and have amazing braking in dry and wet conditions... And they are much cheaper than the premium European brands too. Can t fault them.

Hold on well in the dry but....
My car sits in the garage all week,brand new wheels and these tyres on the front.discovered steering shake when driving off intially. Bit of research discovered that these are notorious for flat spotting when sitting for extended periods. Very soft compound,good for grip,not good for sitting.Explains why the shake eventually went away. They sit on 20 rims on my fg falcon.wont be getting these again.

They hang on but start saving for new tires immediately
Good tire. Smooth, quiet, very good grip wet and dry but you may be replacing them within 12 months. They are on our second car (towing mostly) I noticed wear within months, moved them all around the car to even out wear but now they re all at their wear indicators. This car isn t driven every day and needed replacing at 13 months, The car I drive every day does 600k a week on kumho KH17 fitted 2 months later and will probably need replacing around the end of 2017.
