The Kumho KU31 is the ideal solution for the summer season. It is a mid-range product designed for drivers who place a premium on both safety and superb driving comfort, and offers outstanding grip on both dry and wet roads. The tyre's design is based on a model once used as original equipment in Mercedes vehicles (among others). It is the number-one product manufactured by Kumho, a company which is very popular among drivers.
The Kumho KU31 tyre took first place in the Auto-Świat rankings published in 2007, and was described as a model which delivers superlative grip on both dry and wet roads. Driving stability is guaranteed by the tyre's central rib, and the tread design ensures adaptability to every type of road. The tyre architecture minimises rolling resistance and ensures a uniform distribution of forces, which reduces tyre noise. Two wide channels which disperse water ensure that contact between the tyre and the road is maintained continuously, and the risk of slipping is reduced to zero. The diagonal sipes on the shoulder also guarantee comfort when going round corners. The designers of the Kumho KU31 chose a silica-enhanced compound which improves both the quality and mileage performance of the tyre.
The reliability of the Kumho KU31 has been demonstrated in many tests, and the model has also been highly ranked for its grip on both dry and wet roads. The Kumho KU31 is the ideal summer tyre for owners of mid- and premium-range vehicles capable of high speeds, and an outstanding choice for fast drivers. The Kumho KU31 delivers reliable performance in a wide range of different weather conditions.

I have my Kumho KU31 tyres in the size 225/55R16. I bought them because they have good resutls in the tests, and they are cheap, compared to Michelin. At first, I bought two tyres for the front axle. Comapred to my previous Sunny they are way better. After two months, I bought another two for the rear and it was there where I got a bit disappointed. At the speed of 95 MPH the whole car shakes. I got the wheels re-balanced three times, but with no avail. It turned out that my two new tyres were faulty and I got two new ones. Now it's fine, but I was nervous for some time due to that. I can say thar Kumho KU31 are very good in the rain - you don't hear anything, they cut through the water nicely. I don't know if I buy Kumho KU31 again in a year or two after such trouble, but overall I can recommend them. Kumho KU31 are good tyres for a decent price.
I did drive for 22000 miles, relax driving style, still legal to drive on protectors fabulous shape still in there, but this is only been used for short period of the time as I'm cab driver and did 22000 miles within 5 month, looks still like new probably another 3-4000 mile will last for me, handling very good in any type of weather and road condition, I would definitely recommend for easy going drivers on XL, never had any failures, balancing easy and drives straight, it's been used with no swaping in front wheel, and car front wheel drive, in general I do recommend this tyres there do more than its cost, enjoy driving :):):)
Kumho KU31 look nice on my alloys. The ECSTA mark on the tyres looks very effective but it wears off after a few thousand miles (on the drive axle). Very quiet tyres, they drain the water from under the car like crazy. Perfect sports-class rubber compound (only the best tyres have a compound with the addition of silica). I am very pleased with them. Kumho KU31 are underrated but they are frequently used in Dakar trucks and in the US. It's worth to look through Kumho offer. They have a huge variety from slicks to go-kart tyres, car tyres and terrain tyres.
I will be using Kumho KU31 tyres for the second season now. I have them fitted to my Honda Civic Type R. Compared to to Toyo Proxes T1-R they are much more durable, cheaper and they give pretty much the same grip (however, remember that you need to warm the tyre up before dynamic and fast driving). On wet road Toyo were average, much worse than Kumho KU31. When it comes to noise level, these tyres surprised me as well as they are quite silent for directional tyres. I definitely recommend buying Kumho KU31.
Kumho KU31 have never let me down, so I don't look for any other ones. They are not very popular, probably because they are not as widely available and not as cheap as they were. I used to drive on quieter and louder tyres, but it's not a drawback for me. I need efficiency, and Kumho KU31 do the job very well. I am not surprised by its highest braking and wet performance indicators. They disperse the water wery well and on dry they behave great as well. I definitely recommend Kumho KU31 as a decent tyre.
