Anyone know anything about this tire? Thinking of it as a possible rear
tire on my Can Am. Currently running Pirelli P4 and previously General Altimax.
Someone on the forum came up with this brand and it look pretty good. Many riders
use the Kumho Esta Ast.

They're well-known for bicycle and powersports tires. Didn't know they were in the automotive market.

OEM on Kias. Liked them so much bought a new set from dealer.

I would consider them comparable to Dunlop, Uniroyal, Kelley, ...

They are big in the off road world. I prefer Mickey Thompson though.

They have a reputation as one of the best trailer tires. I just put 4 new ones on my travel trailer.

They used to be better known as Cheng Shin Rubber of Taiwan. I remember they used to sell a lot of bicycle tires. Back then they weren't high end, but they were reliable and generally good quality.
