The new WINTERCRAFT ICE WI31 (STUDDABLE) from Kumho is a winter tire specially designed to brave snow-covered and icy roads safely. Kumho decided to incorporate a directional tread design to enhance snow performance and included biting edges within the V-shaped formation for added grip and traction on snow. The well optimized V-shaped grooves helps channeling water efficiently and is combined with multi-directional sipes for incredible ice grip and traction. Its studding provides the Kumho's WINTERCRAFT ICE WI31 (STUDDABLE) with an outstanding handling and grip on snow and ice. The tire's design offers a maximal noise reduction while making the ride smooth and comfortable.

These tires are reasonably low on noise. They behave well on dry and very well on wet roads. In deep snow the acceleration grip is very good and braking ability as well. They are very good at maintaining lateral stability on deep snow covered roads even at speeds above 80 km/hr. Ice traction is very good as well on both acceleration and braking. The only place I could minimally critique this tire is it could be a little better on steering response in snow. Overall a great snow and ice tire for a low to medium budget.

5 star rating because they are studdable and haven’t got into an accident yet. Drives great in winter conditions with lots of snow/ice. I live in Alberta where it will snow, rain be +20 and drop to -30 degrees Celsius in the middle of winter all within the same day so having these tires studded make all the difference on icy roads/snowy roads and sudden changing winter conditions. These tires perform really well and I will continue to buy this brand going forward. They are noisy when they are studded but that is the least of my worries. Have driven these tires for 2 years in the winter (end of October to end of April) Of course, if you drive like a moron in winter you’re going to have some issues regardless of winter tires, driving to the conditions and having these winter tires on my car makes a world of a difference and lots more confidence

I bought a set of 4 in December, they arrived in about 1 week, DOT on them was 2720, so quite fairly new. I live in Vancouver, BC. Winters here are mild, I am very satisfied with my purchase, price vs. quality. I also got a chance to drive them in a bit of snow, they performed well. I am usually a very easy going driver, I am using my car as a vehicle, takes me from here to there. Would I buy them again?! Yes, are they quiet?! Yes, but also my Audi A6 it's quite insulated. Are they everything I need from a set of tires?! Yes, to me yes, they do fit my bill, the meet my expectations.

I purchased these tires for the winter. Went through 2 snow storms, highway and city, as well as icy roads. I have a 2 dr, rear wheel drive car. Those tires made a huge difference. Highly recommend them, especially for that great price. Also recommend studding them.

The tires are loud and noisey and that is partly the reason I give them 4 out of 5. Also the tread is very aggressive and quite directional on dry road, which lowers your feul economy and can track into deep tire grooves worn into the road by other vehicles but that could also, just be the smaller tire size on my Mitsubishi. Other then that the tires make your car feel like a tank in dry, wet, and any snowy conditions. They handle well on my car 165/65/14 and give me a peice of mind I have not experienced with other tires at the same price. I would rate them above any hankook, bridgestone, momo of the same price and feel they are a better choice over the Rotalla brand offered here, which has a soft rubber that wears the tread quick on dry roads. Based on my experience I've had with this car for 4 full winter seasons and I am now experiencing my 5th winter and these are by far my favorite tires yet.

I just made a 600 km drive in extreme winter conditions which included 3 mountain passes and I can't say enough good things about my new tires! I always drive the conditions and they handled beautifully. They are also fairly smooth and quiet as far as I can tell. I have had Blizzaks before and these are comparable but found the Blizzaks only performed well for a couple of seasons. I would buy these again in a heartbeat!
