Kumho Ecsta PA31 review
What is it?
The Kumho Ecsta PA31 is a high performance all season tire designed for mid-level, sporty coupes and sedans used through four seasons.
Strengths and weaknesses?
The Ecsta PA31 offers noteworthy grip and handling capabilities in dry and wet road conditions. Just off the pace of the class leading Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (V-Speed Rated).
Comfort characteristics are above average for the category.
Treadlife could improved some.
In wintry conditions, the Ecsta PA31 fares much better than the ultra high performance Kumho Ecsta ASX and offers true winter use potential. Within the high performance all season category, the Ecsta PA31 offers arguably the best winter competence.
How does the Ecsta PA31 compare?
The Ecsta PA31 ranks third out of sixteen tires per user feedback.
In 2013 Tire Rack comparison testing the Ecsta PA31 bested four high performance all season contemporaries to finish first overall in final scoring.
Anything else to know?
Along with offering well rounded, true four season performance, the Ecsta PA31 is one of the most affordable high performance all season tire options.
If you require an all season (including winter) tire with performance, also see the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06.
We highly recommend.
