After spending so much money on continental's, dunlops and other premium brands, I've just paid over £100 less for two tyres and their performance is incredible in comparison. I chose a very wet day to have my tyres changed so was sceptical about pushing the tyres too far but the more and more I pushed it the bigger my smile got!

So impressed. Will never go back to those other brands now

Following my earlier comments, I remain extremely happy with my choice of the HS51 XL tyres...and thanks for the recommendation.
Winter isn't the best time to test summer tyres but inevitably most of us only use one set all year round, so it's good to know their strengths and weaknesses.
I've now completed around 3000 miles and encountered a wide range of conditions.
Unsurprisingly the HS51 tyres struggled on fresh, dry snow but as it became wet and slushy the excellent anti-aquaplaning characteristics kicked in and grip levels improved massively.
Similarly, they don't really like damp road conditions, it's by no means bad but you do experience that 'greasy' sensation that comes from a road surface that's neither wet nor dry.
Wear rate so far appears excellent, as per my previous Kumhos, and now that I've had two bearings replaced, I can really appreciate the smooth and quiet ride.
The progressive and very positive grip levels, wet and dry, is very reassuring.
This is my third set of different summer Kumhos for this car, each having slightly different characteristics but overall with nothing really to choose between them, they've all been good, very good.
Will update again after some proper summer weather but I'm confident that I'll be just as happy with them and that there'll still have many miles of life left.

Bought these tyre's 25th May 2018, so I guess I've done about 800 miles. Previously I've always fitted the car manufacturers tyre, which for the car I have now was Michelin at £130/ tyre. After a little of research I decided on KUMHO ECSTA HS51. I've been driving 50 years and suspect tyre technology has made advancement over that period of time, but I truly find it hard to believe these tyre's make such a difference - my car now drives better than it did when it came out of the showroom. If there ever was a tyre made for my particular car it's this. I don't know how long they will last, but driving moderately I expect them to be no worse than the Michelin's.

Hi, I travelled 95,000 kilometres with a set of 4Kumho Solus size 205 / 60 / 16 without any problem. I raced in the rain cornered at 80kilometres per hour in 1 feet of water and my car does not slip. But I am disappointed with Kumho Ecowing ES01, they broke and it was lost money after 3weeks, and no refund from you.I like KUMHO and I like to buy Solus KH 17 again.
In Malta Kumho does not send enough tires so that the Maltese people know what Kumho tyres do.When I say to my colleges what I done with Kumho tyres, they do not believe me. I like to order from this site but I cannot order because you ask me for a british code and my code is from Malta.
THANKS Franky.
