Designed, engineered and produced specifically for today&scute;s growing number of mid-level sports sedans and coupes, the Ecsta PA31 delivers outstanding street performance and excellent mileage. Wet and dry handling worthy of the high performance moniker while excelling in light snow conditions, the Ecsta PA31 distinguishes itself with an unparalleled combination of comfort, low noise, high performance and long mileage.

  • Heavy sipe density and large cross grooves expel water quickly, improving snow and wet weather handling.
  • The directional tread design is shaped to avoid uneven wear and delivers excellent steering, cornering and braking in all-season conditions.
  • The variable pitch shoulder blocks reduce road noise throughout the life of the tire.
  • Advanced design technology and balanced tread compound achieve the ideal blend of all-season traction and high mileage performance.
  • ESCOT Technology improves steering response and increases tread life by optimizing cord tension distribution in the sidewall.

I went through two sets in less than 50k miles. The first set, fortunately I had Road Hazard that replaced them. These tires are load and provide a less than desirable ride. I have a 2014 Camaro V6 and I'm not a aggressive driver. I use it primarily to commute to and from work and as a daily driver. It hasn't had any long distance drives. These tires should have at least lasted 45k the two sets together lasted less than that. I will not buy again.

So far so good. Will report back in a year for snow and wear ratings. Much better wet handling than the hankook noble s2 that came on the car. Seem pretty quiet. Were squirmy when brand new but now that are broken in they offer a nice balance of handling and comfort on my 2013 optima.

best price for run flat tires ... they my not say they are but with a nail and no air in the tire ( rear driver side ) the tire did not get flattened and I was able me to drive with out any problems to the tire shop they wear quite evenly ... even with rotating them very seldom definitively recommend if you are looking for a good deal

I switched to this tire from OEM Continentals run-flats because tire store and several customer reviews claimed it would deliver a significantly smoother and quieter ride. DO NOT believe such claims. Ride is as or hasher than OEM tires. They do nothing to absorb small potholes, manhole cover dips or even small road imperfections. So huge disappointment here! Furthermore, while they seem to perform similarly to Continentals on dry roads and light rain. they were noticeable worse on ice and snow. and that's vs. well worn OEM tires. In summary, while I haven't had the tires long enough to comment on tread wear, I've already determined this to be a bad choice... and they live up to the belated warnings to avoid Korean tires. Yes I saved about $100 on a set of four non-run-flats (when and if I get their rebate) over other options, and about ~$300 over run flats, but not a smart investment.
