Just a note: According to Tirerack the Kumho 712 is available in stock 205/55-16 size in V and W ratings.
The W rated version is a bit softer compound (lower treadwear rating) and has slightly stiffer sidewalls than the V rated. Sometimes I wonder if people that complain about Kumho's sidewalls have the V rated, because I have W rated on my 2.5RS and have little or no problems with rollover when auto-xing as long as I bump the pressure up to 40+ lbs.
