The Ecsta PA31 is Kumho’s High Performance All-Season tire for drivers who want to experience persistent tread wear along with everyday driving. The tires are intended for mid-level sports cars, sporty coupes and high-performance sedans. The PA31 delivers Kumho’s awesome combination of ride comfort, low noise and all-season traction, even in light snow. With the ECSTA PA31, drivers can expect high performance handling in both wet and dry conditions. Kumho’s engineers used an advanced technology tread compound that allows the ECSTA PA31 to deliver high performance handling, all-season traction with prolonged tread wear. The directional tread produces even wear; better steering, stable cornering and braking traction in all-season conditions. The directional tread design of four circumferential and multiple cross grooves quickly expel water to resist hydroplaning and improve wet weather traction. The tire’s high sipe density and tread block edges enhance both wet weather handling and wintertime snow traction.
