Kumho Ecsta 4X II KU22



Description

The Ecsta 4X II was created for those who are driven to drive. Unrivaled on cold, wet pavement, its advanced design and compound deliver exceptional handling in any condition - with styling and comfort equal to the finest luxury sedans.

  • Unmatched handling on wet and dry roads comes from an exceptionally stiff tread block that holds its shape around tight curves and corners
  • Superb handling on cold, wet pavement results from a tread design that expels snow and water quickly
  • Smooth, quiet comfort is greatly enhanced by a unique noise-canceling tread that reduces road harmonics and vibration
  • Excellent cold traction results from a unique rubber compound engineered to run at cooler temperatures and stay flexible in the cold
  • Outstanding traction due to an oversized footprint, optimized for maximum road contact
