Question Anybody know about the Kumho 711's?

Yes, not the 712's, but the 711's... Does anyone have any info on them? Quality, tread wear, etc.? I can't find them on any Tire Rack, etc. type sites...
Help!

Pretty good street tires, although not as sticky as RE730's or Race Rubber. Good tire for the money. When they overheat, they become very very slippery, so you got to watch out. I have some that are about 60-50% tread, PM me about them and maybe you can HAVE them. You will want to mount them inside out though, because the outsides are worn from autoxing. Let me know.

Regarding the 711s - "I have become death, killer of curbs..."

These are excellent summer tires. However, my car skates with them on the ice/snow. Keep that in mind. It will be VERY easy for you to swap ends on the slick stuff.

I totally second Diz's opinion which is why I got my RE-92's mounted now and I am going to get them siped.

Thanks for the responses Although my rear tires are so bad that they are basically slick anyway (and I do swap ends in the snow with them, on purpose courtesy of the handbrake ) But I know what you mean, when I'm not expecting it...
