Kumho designed the Ecsta STX KL12 tire specifically for drivers of sports utility, light trucks and crossover vehicle applications. Blending an attractive look with a year-round performance the Ecsta STX KL 12 delivers great traction even in light snow. Designed with a bold tread pattern with big firm tread blocks, this tire provides quick response and sporty control. Lateral grooves help to disperse water from beneath the footprint to resist hydroplaning.
The interior structure of the Ecsta STX KL12 consists of matching high tensile steel belts strengthened by two nylon cap piles, which stabilize the tread region to provide better handling and high-speed stability. The tire’s sidewall is designed with nylon bead reinforcements and two polyester body plies to provide a blend of ride quality and steering response. The lower sidewall has a rim protector that helps protect the wheel from curb damage. Variable pitch tread blocks minimize cabin noise to deliver a quieter and more comfortable ride. The Kumho Ecsta STX KL12 tire guarantees supreme all-season performance in both wet and dry weather conditions.
