Kumho Tire’s Ecsta HS51 Gets Top Award From Auto Bild

Kumho Tire’s best-selling Ecsta HS51 was ranked first in the new Summer Tire contest and received an “exceptional” Auto Bild rating. Auto Bild, a respected German journal, recently compared 53 summer tires sold in Europe based on their dry and wet braking performance. The Ecsta HS51 is Kumho’s best-selling brand on the European market and was awarded the first position. It defeated rival tires from Michelin, Continental, and Bridgestone.

The Kumho Ecsta HS51 is a new premium tire that has been designed to provide motorists with the highest possible degree of comfort, safety, and high performance. It comes with unique features such as exceptional traction, improved wet braking, high mileage, and better tire wear. This gives it excellent stability on all road surfaces.

The Ecsta HS51 is constructed with a tread design that features wide side grooves designed to optimize the amount of water extracted from the tire’s path when cornering. Its strengthened shoulder block enhances handling while its unique composition results in excellent and steady driving performance.

According to Auto Bild, the Ecsta HS51 delivers outstanding grip on dry and moist roads and has precise steering and short braking distances that allow the best driving behavior and stability. Kumho Tire clarified that the Auto Bild test’s outcome served as a credibility assessment for cars and related products.  Kumho’s Ecsta PS71 also ranked third among all other applicants from 17 firms in another test conducted by ADAC Motorwelt, an internationally recognized automotive journal.

Ecsta PS71, the flagship model of the Ecsta sports tire line-up among Kumho tires, also got a “healthy” ranking in the 17-inch ultra-high performance category. It had the highest score.

In the customer reviews, drivers rated Ecsta HS51 very highly. They mainly appreciated the tire’s performance in both dry and wet conditions, its increased fuel performance, quietness, good grip, and nice handling during driving.

The fantastic tire grip took away worries for one driver who lives in a remote area. He claimed that living in a remote region also meant that ice and snowy patches are on the highways in winter, making it impossible for them to drive on bad days. However, his new tires served him well. In addition to having a good price-performance ratio, the drivers said they would buy the same tires again.
