Kumho EcoWing ES31
The Kumho EcoWing ES31 is the company’s brand new environmentally-friendly car tyre.
The successor to the highly popular EcoWing ES01 KH27, the Kumho EcoWing ES31 is made of an eco-friendly compound. It also features an aerodynamic shoulder design for improved air resistance, which consequently improves fuel efficiency.
In addition to this, Kuhmo's engineers have designed the EcoWing ES31 to offer the lowest possible rolling resistance. This allows drivers to save money on petrol and cut down their usage of the world’s finite resources. The EcoWing ES31’s low rolling resistance is a result of its tread pattern's stiff centre rib.
The EcoWing ES31’s innovative asymmetric tread pattern also helps to improve handling performance in both wet and dry conditions. It features four wide circumferential grooves, described by Kumho as ‘drainage channels’, which help to remove surface water from the path of tyre and therefore reduce the risk of aquaplaning.

Kumho EcoWing ES31 Reviews
As it has only recently been released, there are still only a handful of reviews of the Kumho EcoWing ES31 available. The reviews that already exist praise the tyre's reduced road noise and its impressive handling in wet conditions.
Moreover, the EcoWing ES31 is so efficient that 70% of the 38 available sizes have received a B label for fuel efficiency.
