Hi, I have run the Pirelli PZero Rosso on my last 16' Prestige and they lastest very well (about 40+k of normal driving). My current car I run Dunlop Sport Maxx TT. A little pricer but have hung in for 2 track days and about 20k so far. Getting a little tired now though.

Michelin Pilot Sport PS2

Yokohama Advan Neova AD08

I'd also look at Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric2 (amazing tyre), Hankook Ventus S1 Evo or Toyo Proxes T1 Sport. Any of these will be far superior to the Kumho you have one the front. The Bridgestone Potenza RE002 is also worth a look.

Oh and i prefer to buy from the likes of kmart tire etc just because less hassle of buying online etc and taking them to get installed..

Im on the gold coast.

Kmart tire quoted $269 for kumho ku31 $245/40 18" and $319 for 255/35

So you guys recommend the Pilot Sport 2 over Kumho KU31?

KU31 is about $219 for 235/40 so it seems they are similarly priced

IMHO, I rate Michelin over Kumho in a heartbeat.

KU31 is not a bad tyre, but too noise for my like. Pilot Sport 3 is just superior, but not sure about Pilot Sport 2 tho.

If you are in Sydney, call St. George Tyres or Taleb Tyres for good price.

KU31 rated last in EVO's 2010 test. PS2 was 4th due to its poor aquaplaning results but fastest in the dry.


From my personal experience with other Kumho tyres, they're ok in the dry & shocking in the wet. I've got F1 A2 on my Altezza & they're amazing.
