Review
Installed 4 Kumho PS31 without regrets. Done 20000km thus far.

Acceptable noise level, good wet grip. However, the tire does not squeak much during cornering. Wheel squeaks are easily provoked during stand still and provide some entertainment at CP ERP gantries.

Lateral grip is good and they seldom squeak, however for longitudinal grip, ABS is easily activated during semi-hard braking.

What I like
Lateral grip is good.
Great design for the tires and I like to turn the wheels to one side just to admire it.

What I do not like
The longitudinal grip of the tire can be better
Noise

Review
Installed 4 Kumho PS31 without regrets. Done 6000km thus far. Acceptable noise level, good wet grip. However, side walls tend to be softer, can feel it when cornering. Was on Nexen Blue HD plus previously. Highly recommended if you aren't into famous brands.

What I like
Price and wet grip

What I do not like
Soft side wall.

Review
You get what you pay for. Reasonable handling , noise and comfort . Used for around 600km on a RWD saloon. Previously on Mich PS3 and compared as such

What I like
Cheap ! Aggressive looking thread patterns , most common sizes are available at major tyre outlets

What I do not like
Noise, there is a humming noise that emits at low speeds < 70km
Soft sidewalls . Do not expect this o be in the same league of UHP tyres , you will go away disappointed .

Review
After driving 10000km in these tyres , here are my tots, as compared to my previous P7 tyres.

Ride Comfort- As you know, MPV needs comfortable tyres. Honestly, this one and my previous one feels the same.

Handling - Goes in the direction I wants, but I do feel abit more vibrations than my previous tyres...But could be my car is older too.

Dry Braking -
wet braking - Braking is good for this tyres, definitely on par w P7. The four wide grooves are similar to the P7.

Noise - This is the department that imho is definitely noiser than the P7. It is definitely not as quiet....But only if u r driving alone, will you be able to tell the difference.

All in all, considering the price vs the performance of the tyres, I would say it is a fantastic buy. If you are considering replacing your tyres, seriously consider this. Only reason I would think of people not even considering it, is because they prefer more atas brand like Pirelli, Michelin etc.

What I like
Value for money.
Good braking
Comfortable

What I do not like
Noiser than P7,
handling a bit more vibration.

Review
Had always supported kumho tire since day 1..

If I not wrong, this is a replacement model for KU31.

Change them in early march this year and already clock more than 15k on road.

What I like
performance - as good as ku31, probably even excel
hard braking - stop on time.. lucky, just had a fearful experience yesterday whereby the front car suddenly brake..
corner - as good as ku31, stable and road hold.

What I do not like
noisy, same like ku31.. as noisy

design wise, is not as aggressive as compare to Ku31

Review
The title of this review does sound contradictory, but I assure you that this tire does seem to satisfy both needs. Conventional wisdom would tell you that isn't possible. High performance tires need hard side walls so that they corner on rails and with hard side walls, the ride comfort goes out the window. Somehow Kumho has managed to build a tire which is comfortable over Singapore's pothole-filled roads. I get this feeling after coming from the likes of R888, PS3, F1A2, so I know what I'm talking about.

In terms of performance, I ran the tire for 200kms before evaluating it. During those first 200 kms it was grippy, but I had a feeling that I didn't have full confidence in its grip around corners, though my fuel economy was great. After the scrub in period, the grip was noticeably improved: just point the car in that direction and it goes, no protest from the tires at all. It grips and its quiet for the most part. I haven't managed to get it to slide yet, unless the road was sandy.

My only complaint is there is a humming sound due to the thread pattern, but this is low in volume and really obtrusive in the cabin. The price is really good for this kind of tire at 18".

If I were to compare against my previous tires, I would say its almost at the grip level of the PS3, but is much more comfortable and more quiet. The PS3's wear rate is high. It is better than the F1A2 in every aspect IMO. R888 is a different ball game. This is my own subjective opinion. :)

What I like
Comfort, grip, quiet

What I do not like
Humming noise
