Kumho Ecsta STX is a tyre designed specially for sport utility vehicles and light trucks. This ultra-high performance light truck tyre is manufactured to meet the demands of drivers with its high performance and trendy looks. The all-season tyre is very similar to the passenger car in performance, irrespective of the weather conditions. The technically designed tread pattern with good wet traction minimizes aquaplaning risk. The wide and large tread blocks increase the contact patch for good vehicle handling ability. The perfect shape of the moulded tyre reduces all external vibrations caused on irregular roads and ensures comfortable rides. The reinforced beads and the nylon cap plies assure enhanced durability and makes driving pleasurable. The rim protector protects the wheels from external damages like scratches.
Kumho tires finished third with Miracle Motorsports at the 24 hours of Le Mans, in June 2006. A winner's temperament seems to best describe this manufacturer's philosophy, who established its general headquarters in Seoul, South Korea. The face of this multinational who won the respect of consumers all over the world, with its ultra safe tyres, conceived to get the best out of any car, scarcely reminds of the small factory, born in 1960. Always facing future and innovation, this South-Korean producer monopolizes today the ninth place in the top 10 of the greatest tyre manufacturers. Facts, speak better than words: in 2002, Kumho released the very first 26 inch ultra high performance tire (UHP). The leading word in this manufacturer's attitude is development. Kumho has planned to double its production by the end of 2007.
