Most Discussed

Ecsta PS31 has a wide four-channel circumferential groove to improve wet braking and high-speed stability. The grooves are designed to reduce water displacement in the cornering zone, which helps prevent uneven wear on the road surface. The grooves have been made using recycled materials from Volkswagen’s EcoBoost range. The tread design is similar to that of Audi’s RS3 and Audi R8 models. The tire weighs around 3.5 kg. It has a maximum load rating of 7.5 kg.
