Talking new Kuhmo Ecsta LE sports review

so far 500 miles, very quiet thus far and comfortable. Sidewall isnt the stiffest under load, but for $600 installed cant complain..compared to the RFT's they are amazing..will update after 2,000 mile trip to ATL for the Petit le Mans race..

I have put 15k miles on them this summer. Staggered set up with no rotating. Still ultra quiet. Maybe 1/3 tread life left. I'm impressed, and they are a good looking tire.

tires don't last long enough on our cars to justify buying $$$ sets
thumbs up to manufacturers like Hankook, Dunlop, Kuhmo, and falken for providing summer rubber at a reasonable price

I bought these like two months ago. Zero problems. Night and day compared to the garbage RFT's that it came with. Will probably go with these again once i'm done with the current set. If I still have the same wheels.....

I just ordered Kumhos for my 1998 Nissan as I no longer feel like spending $110+ on tires for a 15 y.o. car, but for the BMW the Pilot Super Sports are at an amazing price point.
