Kumho Ecsta XS Tire
The Kumho Ecsta XS offers the ability to pick up an excellent track tire for very little money. These tires are borderline slicks, with amazing levels of grip for the money. In terms of dry performance, the Ecsta XS can rival tires that cost much more thanks to its high levels of traction and good handling characteristics.
However, these tires suffer in terms of daily drivability due to its poor performance in wet conditions. In the wet, it's best to stay off the roads as these tires become unpredictable. Road noise is decent while new, although both the noise levels and ride quality suffer as the tires age. For those seeking the ultimate dry cornering grip at a budget-friendly price, the Kumho Ecsta XS are an excellent choice.
