Kumho Ecsta KU31 Reviews

Given 40% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen Golf 6 GTI (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 5,000 average miles
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...

Given 44% (breakdown) while driving a Audi A4 1.8T S line Cabrio (235/45 R17) on mostly town for 7 easy going miles
kf: purchased these tires at a discount tire for 60$ each, after 5,000 miles went to get my tires rotated at the same discount tire. While there they tell me that the tires in the front are already at the red line in terms of tread life. and the rear tires are also very close to wearing out. at 6,000 miles the tread is even with the tread bars in the rear tires which were rotated to the back, two extremely close call accidents occured, both times at low speeds turning, once during rainfall at 15mph after constant rain for 5 hours in houston ( not flooded or high water) nearly collided into a pickup.

After 7 years of all type of drive on road and trough town this tyres is very good. It's average on wet after 4 years of use but on dry asphalt even now after 7 years this tyres is remarkable.
Before this I drive same brande same size but Kumho Ecsta Supra 712 that after 5 years of same use is become almost like plastic tyres with inpredictable feeling and very dangerous, almost crash car on wet road from fog because tyres is just snap, loos controlbut now see that 712 is all season tyres , hmm... not so.

Given 69% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Fiesta (205/40 R17 V) on a combination of roads for 28,000 spirited miles
This is my 2nd set on the car (ford fiesta 05) wish I could say they were "budget" tyres in R.S.A we pay up to R1200 each (same price more or less as pirrely P zero)but still worth buying I get about 18000km on a set. R.S.A roads are not of the best. It can take a hit from a pothole (no bubbles) just mag gets bent wish they had a bigger mag protector on the tyre. Hard driving /braking in the wet they good as well just don't over work them !but they can handle it. Will I buy them again most definitely again and again

Given 100% (breakdown) while driving a Fiat Grande Punto 1.9 sporting (205/45 R17 V) on mostly motorways for 145,000 spirited miles
I just cannot fault this tyre. It is quiet on the motorway. Progressive handling. Excellent in dry and wet conditions in Wales and England. Useless in snow and ice though, but then again this is a summer tyre. It has a treadwear of 320, which means 25-28k miles after tyre rotation at 14k miles (Fiat Grande Punto 1.9JTD Sporting, remapped at 172bhp and 329 lb/ft). Superbly priced too. As good as a Pirelli P Zero Nero, at half the price and twice the durability. Other than Pirelli, I have tried Falkens, Bridgestone Potenza, Kumho KU39. Nothing comes close to the KU31, very highly recommended indeed.

Given 77% (breakdown) while driving a MG ZS (205/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 25,000 spirited miles
1. Dry grip - grat for low cost tyre (bought 4 for 260euros)- they grip well after beeing warmed a bit, true out whole live span
2. wet grip- they don´t grip well
3. wear- great - visited alps 3 times + 1 track day + city higway driving
fronts are near dead - 25000miles, left just 1mm above control mark, rears maybe 2-3mm.
