Kumho Ecsta Aroma 205/60/16 Thoughts?

Post  pistonring8 on Sun Jan 11, 2009 4:22 pm

Here is an interesting tire I found while looking for another performance tire. Do you guys think it is just a cheesy gimick or a decent performance tire?

I loved the review talking about it stinking up the garage and why they couldn't have made it smell like Brute or something since Lavender doesn't belong in a garage! Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

Well, as much as I was curious about the performance of tire that smells good, I decided on a slightly used pair of 205/60/16 Toyo TPT Proxes. If I don't like the way the Toyo grips, I can always resell the pair and try something else. I still LOVE the Yokohama as430. Might want to move up to the Avid V4..... Oh these damn car tires last so long, I won't have the oppertunity to try and compare many of them for myself!

A good year for me is 5K miles, at that rate it'll be 4 or 5 years before I get to try a different tire.
