The Kumho Ecowing ES31 is a car tyre developed to help reduce the fuel consumption of a car. Kumho have designed the Ecowing ES31 with an eco-friendly philosophy - using eco-compounds in the tyre's makeup. The tyre features a asymmetric tread pattern, to enhance handling performance in both wet and dry conditions. An optimal wet performance is achieved through the use of specially designed 4 wide main grooves within the tread, to quickly and efficiently remove surface water from the path of the tyre - also helping in the reduced risk of aquaplaning. Kumho have also incorporated an aerodynamic shoulder design, for improved air resistance - in turn helping to enhance the tyre's fuel efficient capabilities. The new tyre, ES31, will gradually replace the established KH27.
