The Ecsta PA31 (Performance All-Season) is Kumho’s High Performance All-Season tire developed for drivers of mid-level sports cars, sporty coupes and high-performance sedans looking to combine everyday street performance with treadwear. Designed to provide high performance handling in wet and dry conditions, the Ecsta PA31 delivers Kumho’s unparalleled combination of ride comfort, low noise and all-season traction, even in light snow.
Ecsta PA31 tires feature an advanced technology tread compound that blends high performance handling and all-season traction with long treadwear. Its compound is molded into a mildly directional tread design that promotes even wear, responsive steering, cornering stability and braking traction in all-season conditions. The directional tread design’s four circumferential and multiple cross grooves help expel water quickly to resist hydroplaning and improving wet weather traction while high sipe density and tread block edges enhance wet weather handling and wintertime snow traction.
The tire’s internal structure features Kumho’s ESCOT Technology to enhance steering response and increase treadlife by optimizing cord tension distribution in the sidewall.
