Product Description

The Ecsta AST combines exotic appearance, modern tread design and technology in one low-profile package, while delivering all-season, high performance grip and handling to the entry-level tuner enthusiast. An advanced belt package design is constructed using high-tensile steel belt and jointless nylon cap ply to reinforce the tread area, assuring high speed stability, while an ultra-hard bead filler maximizes lateral grip and high speed durability. The AST’s shoulder blocks feature a sharp leading edge and a rounded trailing edge to prevent heel and toe wear. The leading edge increases wet and snow traction by cutting through ice and water film. A rim protector in the lower sidewall safeguards wheel against scratches and abrasions.

I've had Kumho tires before. They are great for those of us who want a performance tire, without getting into all the details the reviewers go into about which tire is truly best, as far as performance. When you get into the 18" wheel diameter and larger, tires start getting more expensive so these are priced right. The AST's are labeled an H for speed, which is recommended for speeds up to 130 mph which is way over any speeds I would drive. I use them mostly for city driving and I stop and go and corner a little on the aggressive side. These handle great, I can feel a little bit of a pick up at the start and they have really good comport for a 225/40. I think these tires should last 50-60,000 miles without a problem, as they are said to wear evenly. There are some reports of them becoming loud after about 5,000 miles but I just got mine, so I can't say personally, I've had that problem. I am willing to live with a little noise for an overall great, all-season tire that will meet my driving needs. I am very happy with my purchase so far. I placed my order on a Thursday night, and had them installed on the day that they arrived, Tuesday (had arrived sooner, if not for the weekend). Not only were these tires special order at the nearby tire store, but I saved about $80 ordering them through Amazon; even after install.

Very disappointed! Two side wall bulges have developed. The tire will have to be replaced! The tire is not even 1 year old ?!

Tires are awesome for the price. Not a top performance tire by any means but handle fast driving well in the rain.
