High performance tires for your Corvette!
Kumho's family of Ecsta (x' ta) performance tires is designed to enhance every vehicle's capabilities. The Ecsta MX member of the family is Kumho's Extreme Performance tire developed for the drivers of sports cars, performance sedans and sporty coupes. The Ecsta MX is designed to deliver Kumho's ultimate level of dry road performance while maintaining good wet traction. The Ecsta MX is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.
The Ecsta MX molds Kumho's advanced silica tread rubber compound into a directional tread pattern that features massive, stable blocks to increase cornering traction and steering response, while four large, circumferential and multiple directionally aligned lateral grooves resist hydroplaning and enhance wet traction. The tire's structure includes two wide steel belts that are reinforced by spirally wound nylon to provide excellent strength, uniform ride quality, and high-speed capability while the sidewalls are tuned to resist lateral deflection and to provide handling control and positive feedback.
