Tyre details:

The Kumho KU31 is the ideal solution for the summer season. It is a mid-range product designed for drivers who place a premium on both safety and superb driving comfort, and offers outstanding grip on both dry and wet roads. The tyre's design is based on a model once used as original equipment in Mercedes vehicles (among others). It is the number-one product manufactured by Kumho, a company which is very popular among drivers.

The Kumho KU31 tyre took first place in the Auto-Świat rankings published in 2007, and was described as a model which delivers superlative grip on both dry and wet roads. Driving stability is guaranteed by the tyre's central rib, and the tread design ensures adaptability to every type of road. The tyre architecture minimises rolling resistance and ensures a uniform distribution of forces, which reduces tyre noise. Two wide channels which disperse water ensure that contact between the tyre and the road is maintained continuously, and the risk of slipping is reduced to zero. The diagonal sipes on the shoulder also guarantee comfort when going round corners. The designers of the Kumho KU31 chose a silica-enhanced compound which improves both the quality and mileage performance of the tyre.

The reliability of the Kumho KU31 has been demonstrated in many tests, and the model has also been highly ranked for its grip on both dry and wet roads. The Kumho KU31 is the ideal summer tyre for owners of mid- and premium-range vehicles capable of high speeds, and an outstanding choice for fast drivers. The Kumho KU31 delivers reliable performance in a wide range of different weather conditions.

Ecsta SPT KU31 Reviews

I have never encountered a tyre that slips as much as this tyre - Cant make it for a few hundred meters without the tyres slipping when I press the gas pedal...
These Kumo tyres replaced Bridgestones on my Subaru Spec B and have performed excellently. Wear is very good for a car with 245HP and despite being summer tyres have enabled me to drive through deep snow out of my housing estate while other people have been stuck. However it has to be considered the Spec B is 4 wheel drive with a limited slip differential.The general road handling is superb and in particular wet road driving/brake is so very safe. For example on one occasion I had to drive from Frankfort to Luxemburg in heavy rain and easily maintained a speed of 85 to 90mph. At no time was there any change in steering feel or load, the car just felt safe. On the Autobann running at 140mph the car feels totaly stable which is a compliment to both car and tyre. I have owned the car for 6 years and driven a total of 55,000 miles. Kumo tyres were fitted just after purchase and this report reflects my experiance with two sets of Kumo tyres.
Bald after 18,000 miles is pretty average. The grip is 'OK' average, middle of the road etc. They are a decent enough lower-mid-range tyre, but for anyone looking for something more, i would spend a little more. The PS91 is a much much better tyre than these. Handling feels a bit vague too.... on the plus side, these look fantastic on the car - the design is great!
