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.
