Kumho Ecsta PA31
Follow-Up Review: 1,500 miles on tires
Update: Have racked up about 6000 miles on these tires, I keep liking them more and more. Tread wear is even and smooth, snow performance is on par with anything I've had on this car. I might purchase another set soon for my daughters VW Passat. My only gripe is they are made in China........just a personal thing I'm sick of supporting another country's industry when our country is turning from manufacturing to a service base industry. In fact, I probably will buy Generals now that I think of it unless Kumho opens a factory here in the US.
Initial Review: 500 miles on tires
My third set of Kumhos, I always was satisfied with these tires, not the best in class but always an excellent value (KU-27's and ASX's prior). SO far I have to say I am VERY impressed with ride quality, low tread noise and excellent wet traction. They balanced perfectly, NO shimmy all the way to 90 mph, I mean not a trace! Well see about winter traction, I suspect they will be good. My car is AWD and last season the KU-27's got me through almost three feet of snow at half tread depth....no easily mind you but three feet of snow is not a cake walk for any car. Will
