Kumho Tyres @ Tyremen.co.uk
The Kumho Tyre Co is a south Korean company which was formally known as Samyang Tyre founded in 1960 which make Kumho Tyres a relatively young company, having a good presence in the original equipment market supplying tyres to BMW, Mercedes, Ford, Hyundai, Kia and Mitsubishi. With prestige manufacture like BMW & Mercedes allowing Kumho Tyres to be fitted as standard can only mean quality in my eyes.
Test results 2017
Recently Kumho after an 8-year absence entered there Ecsta HS51 into the Auto express summer tyre test although it did come 4th the Ecsta HS51 showed some very good quality, coming 1st in the wet cornering category and joint 2nd for in cabin noise. Yes, I did say 4th however, in the tyre world there is what we call the top 6 big manufactures Michelin, Bridgestone, Continental, Goodyear, Pirelli & Dunlop with Hankook nipping at their heels. The Kumho Ecsta HS51 was beaten by 1st place Continental, 2nd place Dunlop & 3rd place Bridgestone beating the 5th place Hankook 6th place Goodyear and the poor performing Pirelli down in 8th. Price wise Kumho sits very well in the midrange category and looking at the results above very good value for money.
