I've got about 40 Runs on them so far they are good. The Hoosier in the same size look wider. The only Hoosier equipped car I competed against is a boxster S. I have beat him 4 out of 5 events.

The wear is good too I have about 2 or 3 more events before I have to flip them

If money is no object get the hoosiers if you want a faster alternative to Kumho try the Avon's

I've got three events on my Avons, or 17 runs plus 20 street miles to scuff them in. No measurable wear. They are right there with Hoosiers on one of the asphalt lots I've run on, IMO, and slightly slower on the other. Running on concrete this weekend for the first time, so we'll see.

That said, I've no real idea what pressures to run, and am obviously still learning them. They might be even faster than that once I figure them how.

Definitely faster than any non-V710 Kumho, and cheaper than Hoosiers. If you can get V710s in your size, those might make more sense, but I think the Avons will last longer at about the same price.
