Kumho ECSTA KH11 (Grand Touring Summer)

Well, I've had Kumho's on my Mustang for over a year now and they are okay. Not much dry weather traction however, they've lasted me a year and so I'm happy with that! I think I paid around 80 bucks/tire from Discount Tire. Good luck!

hi are your Kumo tires summer tires? What I understand about a summer a tire is that they are ALL about dry weather traction. They offer poor wet and no snow performance, focusing patterns with large contact area - sometimes having 1 or 2 continuous strips of tread circling the center of the tire. These patterns impede the watter shedding action of all-season, and all weather tred tires whom use large spaces and channels

Those BFGs are nice; the Nitto 555 is a nice well priced tire also. Other experiences with Toyo and Bridgestone were good. If its summer only defintely go Z-rated (or at least V).

I like my BF Goodrich G-Force tires. They have awesome wet traction!
Out of curiousity, who is the IDIOT that put plugs in your sidewalls?!!
Are you looking for an accident or what?
