Product description

Kumho Ecsta PS71 245/40 R18 97 Y XL, ZR


Kumho Ecsta PS71 is a mid-price summer tyre that fits any car, whether it's a mid-range, luxury or sporty class.

  • The compound used to create the tread is a highly dispersible micro silica compound - it causes slow wear and tear and durability of the rubber layer, which does not deform regardless of temperature.
  • Numerous notches in the tread blocks and wide circumferential grooves ensure excellent handling on wet roads. The water is drained off almost immediately when driving on water, minimising the risk of slipping and preventing aquaplaning.
  • The tyre's construction makes it ideal for fitment on sporty cars. The tyre's construction is robust and makes it easy to drive even during dynamic driving. Precise cornering and dynamics - that's what the Kumho Tyre Ecsta PS71 delivers.

Choosing the Kumho Tyre Ecsta PS71 is all about performance, safety and economy.

Fuel efficiency (rolling distance)

Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a colour-coded scale. The highest fuel efficiency rating is A (green; the lowest rolling resistance), while the lowest fuel efficiency rating is G (red; the highest rolling resistance). Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and vehicle emissions; the lower the resistance, the lower the fuel consumption and exhaust fume emissions.

Wet grip

Wet grip is the tyre's ability to adhere to the road surface in wet conditions. The EU rating focuses only on the wet braking performance of the tyre. Wet grip is rated from A to G, where A represents the best braking performance and G represents the worst. It is one of the most crucial safety parameters.


Tyres contribute to the amount of noise a vehicle generates. Choosing a tyre with a good noise rating will lower the impact of your driving on the surrounding environment.
