Kumho Ecsta KH11 review
What is it?
The Kumho Ecsta KH11 is a grand touring summer tire designed for luxury and sport coupes and sedans. Often purchased as an affordable original equipment replacement/upgrade tire option.
Strengths and weaknesses?
Strong performance in both dry and wet road conditions for a grand touring summer tire.
Civility and road manners are a high point. Ride quality is excellent, and road noise is low.
User data suggests that treadlife could be improved.
How does it compare?
Direct comparison data is lacking, but in the very sparse grand touring summer tire category, the Ecsta KH11 stands out on the basis of value and performance.
- Treadlife Warranty: None
- Uniformity Warranty: 1 year, first 2/32" wear
Anything else to know?
Very limited sizes remain, and special/closeout pricing may apply. As far as grand touring summer tires from Kumho, the Ecsta KH11 is/was it. This fact is much to the dissatisfaction of loyal users who appreciated its blend of performance, civility, and affordability.
Overall the grand touring summer category lacks standout options at this time, and accordingly we would direct consumers toward a grand touring all season option like the excellent Bridgestone Driveguard.
