Kumho Tires - ECSTA 15 Series
The Lamborghini Countach had the widest rear tyres of it's time at a humongous 345/35R15.
A low 35 Series profile was, let's just say, exotic!
Later on a lot of supercar manufacturers followed suit.
Some examples include the:
While all of these were low profile, high performance Z rated tyres, nobody was prepared for the shock a small company out of South Korea. that has struggled and is slowly making it's mark in the performance tyre segment, was about to give.
Introducing the Kumho ECSTA 15 Series:
They're available in a relatively modest size, going by current standards, measuring at a puny 385/15ZR22 for your fancy sports car!
Who's going to fit them on your wheels for you? I have no idea!
They'll glide over most pot holes but if you happen to crush a bug while driving, you're going to end up with a shattered spine!
