Kumho Ecsta HM KH31 available EXCLUSIVELY at Tyrepac

The Kumho Ecsta HM KH31 has landed in Singapore! Tyrepac has landed another first as this tyre is only exclusively available online at Tyrepac – get yours today before they are sold out!

The Kumho Ecsta HM KH31 delivers tyre performance that is very adaptive to both wet and dry roads. You can feel the difference with supreme braking in the rain and less road noise in all conditions. The cross shaped side of the shoulder breaks the water tension, the streamline round grooves push the water aside and the four straight grooves maximize drainage. The modern and distinctive sidewall design features solid lettering and comb shaped serration band.

The German magazine Auto Bild (one of the world’s most successful automotive titles (2.8 million readers in Germany alone) ranked the Kumho ECSTA HM KH31 third overall out of 14 summer products from 13 tyre manufacturers – including Michelin, Continental, Pirelli and Goodyear – and ‘exemplary’ overall.

Tyres in the popular size of 185/60R15 were assessed for handling, braking, driving comfort and fuel efficiency. The resulting report concluded that ‘the KH31 demonstrated a high degree of balanced performance on both wet and dry surfaces, good aquaplaning resistance and low pass-by noise levels’. The summary recorded that the KH31 was one of three tyres to offer ‘reassuringly high reserves of safety’.

Last year the KH31 tied for second place in a tyre test conducted by another well regarded German publication – Autozeitung. With its upgraded ultra high-performance tread compound technology, the KH31 boasts enhanced driving ability and extended product life.
