Kumho KU31 is still using the old technology as this tyre has been in the market for some time already. The dry performance is okay, except for it's wet handling, which is quite poor.
If you are looking into Korean tyres might as well go for the Hankook V12Evo.

Kumho distributor used to be AutoArt, but have since changed a few months back........

If you mean the test by tirerack, then you should see the comparison chart.
All score by the Kumho are only in the light green area. The good ones are scoring in the dark green area.

For korean tyres, my choices preference as follows:

215/45/17

1st - NEXEN N8000 (KOREA) - no stock!! RM290@QS
2nd - HANKOOK V12 EVO (KOREA) RM320@TM (tyre+balance only)- RM350@GT (tyre+balance+align+valves)
3rd - KUMHO ECSTA SPT KU31 (VIETNAM) RM280 promo ... that's what is holding me back with the country of make tongue.gif
