Great tyres. Love the way they ride
Have driven my car in dry and wet conditions. The Kumho tyres grip the road very well and don't have a lot of road noise. Handle very well around tight corners as well. Highly recommend these tyres.
Purchased in October 2019 at Tyrepower for $640.

i bought a set of these kumo's for my mercedes and they make such a difference to the way my car preforms and handles , terrific in the wet and the dry you dont get a lot of road noise from them either i would certainly recommend these tyres for a sedan or sports coupe like mine , iam also getting little wear from using them so they have been a win win for me and i am sure you would be pleased with them as well
Second generation Kumho ECSTA 4X II (KU22) - best tyres ever bought!
I bought the second generation ECSTA 4x II for my BA Falcon and they are by far the best tyres I have ever used. Note, these are the updated version of the original ECSTA 4x.
Kumho website stated that the second generation ECSTA 4x II has a much improved tread life than the original ECSTA 4x as well as better wet handling. Spot on. I have traveled 25,000 kms to date with minimal wear. Car is driven aggressively and weighs 1.7 tonnes, so this is a amazing result compared to the many other brands I have tried over the past many years.
Ove...r the years I have tried many different brands, including other Korean, Taiwanese, Japanese and even "premium European" (made in China) brands. The Kumhos are perfect even in the wet (anyone who has driven a Falcon knows how important rear-wheel traction is in the wet, especially on corners and roundabouts). They drive very smooth, are quiet on the freeway, grip very well in sharp corners and have amazing braking in dry and wet conditions... And they are much cheaper than the "premium European" brands too. Can't fault them.
Can't fault these tyres
4/ 205-50-17 fitted to Mazda 3 SP23 and now needing replacement after 70,000K's suburban driving! Rotated regularly through KTAS tyre plan. They replaced Dunlops after fed up with tyre noise and the Kumhos cut the noise with no noticeable loss off handling. Great mileage!

Questions & Answers
What compound are these ?
The compound of these tyres are as follows:
1. Optimal 4 season performance delivered by applying endurance race proven new concept silica. ...2. High Grip Resin - Improvement of both grip power and traction capability by applying HGR (High Grip Resin). 3. High dispersible & particle size silica By applying brand new nano-size Silica, optimises wear and wet traction capability without compromise. The Tread: 1. Handling - Inside tread - Improves water clearance for high levels of wet weather performance. 2. Outside tread - Optimises cornering performance. 3. Long lasting wear - Extended wear rates - Multi-angled tread block stiffens the tread area for greater strength. 4. Low noise- Tread pitch sequencing - Delivers low noise levels for day to day driving. Rim Size 15 - 20 inch Series 55 - 35 Speed Ratings W - V Pattern Designs Asymmetric My vehicle a '2012 Citroen C4 Mk2 e-HDi Hatch' came standard with Michelin Primacy 225/45x17 and these Kumho Ecsta 4X KU22 225/45x17 ($170.00 each balanced and fitted at K-Mart Tyres) are a much better tyre both in handling and grip in wet/dry conditions and especially in road noise, which the Michelins are very bad and loud at. So far I've had these since October 2017 and I've done 20,000Kms with them and they don't show any wear what's so ever. Got them at a very competitive price and I'm very happy with them. I can recommend these highly.
I have an Ford XR 6 2010 and these tyres were recommended as well as (Kumuho KU22 - 24545 R17)
Can you assist on this product?
Hi. My wife has the KU22 sized 235/45/17 on her car a Peugeot and they are excellent. They have done 20000k's so far with very little wear evident. We replaced the equivalent size Continental Contact...Sports because they wear too quickly. The KU22's have excellent grip in the wet or dry. My wife's cousin has used Kumho's for a number of years on his work vehicle and has the KU22 on his BMW. I am replacing the Bridgestone Sereneity Plus tyres with KU22's next week on our Jaguar. I can recommend these highly. I think they are great value for money.
