The new ECSTA AST combines exotic looks, high technology and everyday use durability in a low profile package. Built especially for sports cars and 'Tuned' sedans, the ECSTA AST is the perfect choice when the desire for larger rims meets a slim budget. Designed to provide all season traction, long mileage and good looks, the ECSTA AST also delivers high performance grip and handling.

A unique V shaped design provides excellent grip in the snow and wet without compromising dry road performance. The combination of aggressive and wide tread blocks integrated with multiple sipes to evacuate snow and water means the KU25 is truly an all-season performer.

I've put just over 6,000 miles on these tires and I only have 4/32 left on the tread. The tires are noisy and awful in the snow. Directional tires just shouldn't be made anymore. Don't be cheap and buy from a proven brand like Michelin.

I bought 2012 Hyundai Sonata and these tires come with it. I have 39k on the tires and the tread is down to 20%, very noisy and wear off fast. I would never buy this brand again.

Near Stock 1990 Miata (205/40r17 tires/rims, and engine compartment stiffening bar) Tires are fine for highway cruising/day to day driving in dry weather ( rare thing here in the Willamette valley, Oregon U.S.A.) in the wet or cold they are poor.. and in "spirited driving".... well, I REALLY miss the old Federal 595SS tires that were on the car when I bought it... the Kumho's (which I used on all my prior cars) plow like a draft horse.. I mean SERIOUS understeer (slide right out of a corner type understeer if not carefull) where the feddies stuck like glue (blowing a Z06 corvette that was REALLY trying hard... away on a twisty road, in a Miata... THAT is stuck like glue) maybe I should have gotten the next step up Ecsta... but the price on the AST sucked me in (low bank account when tires were needed) Still like Kumho tires... but no more AST's for me.

2012 WRX/Stage 3. Decent cheap tire. Grip seems fair when pushed, comfort is fine. Not sure about noise, my turboback exhaust, and blowoff is what I hear under power. No issues with noise when cruising freeways. Sidewall flex is fine as long as tire pressure is correct. Steering feedback is very good IMO, better than OEM Dunlops. I had a set of these on my 04 WRX and got 30,000 out of them, before they got whompy. I really don't think you can buy a better tire for the money. If I were to target anything its extreme cornering in wet, which I try not to do, otherwise siping is pretty good. This is a softer compound tire which ill wear a bit quicker and can only be rotated front to rear. Being symmetrical AWD, frequent rotation is a must!
