    Default Kumho Ecsta XS

    Are these any good and which tires are they comparable to?

    I liked them when I had them. They take a lot of heat. Apparently they're horrible in the wet, but I wouldn't know about that. Close to Dunlop Star Specs, and Advan AD08s, I think.

    Yeah, they are good. Not quite as good as a Yokohama AD08 or Starspec. But for the price they are right up there with the better high performance street tires.

    My experience with Kuhmo street performance tires on track, although it was Ecsta MX, not XS, is that the sidewalls are weak and I would never touch them again.
