Class-leading fuel efficiency. The asymmetric Ecowing ES01 KH27’s eco-friendly characteristics afford better rolling resistance and significant fuel savings in comparison to equivalent conventional tyres, combined with improved handling and wet performance.
A contemporary tyre for small to medium sized cars The Solus KH17 offers excellent stability and proven high levels of wet and dry traction.
Eco Performance Tyre.
High performance, driven by race-derived technology. The ECSTA SPT KU31 tyre is for the driver who wants a fine balance between comfort, high performance and safety. It is also available in XRP run-flat fitment in some sizes.
Now on my third set of these, brilliant in the dry, brilliant in the wet, slow to warm in the really cold weather, heavier wear rate on the fronts, but you cant have it all at these prices. Spain and back every year no issues. Works well at higher psi 45 front 40 rear.
Kumho Tyre Car The Improved Ultra-High Performance Tyre
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
The Improved Ultra-High Performance Tyre
The Super-UHP Tyre for Sports Cars.
Ensuring the smoothest ride for executive cars. The ECSTA HS51 is the perfect tyre for luxury vehicle drivers who want smoothness and quietness with precision handling and braking. With its cutting-edge tread design and high-tech compound, this tyre offers the best of both worlds.
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.
Power and control for high-performance saloons. Renowned for its well-balanced performance, the Kumho KH31 is perfect for drivers of higher powered saloons and estates who are looking for high-speed stability and excellent all-round performance. Now fitted as original equipment to the BMW 3 series.
