My Kumho V700 rears have some tread left but they went hard on me and are not doing a great job now that the temperatures are cool, plus I learned my lesson that running "regular" compound Kumho Ectsa MXs on the front with stickies out back is not great (even with Tom's rear calipers the fronts will absolutely billow smoke without the rears even thinking about locking up). I have never liked the wacky V700-to-rim lip interface (although it is totally worth the extra performance) so I decided to try the newish Toyo R888 (replaced the RA-1) which comes in the proper sizes for the 18" Viper fitment. Plus the dang tread just looks so cool. Labels: NICE LOOKING TREAD! I call these my "all-season" tires: The rears appear a little bit wider than the V700s, but that is mainly from a squarer shoulder: But the tire-to-lip interface is SO much more attractive on the Toyo (bottom) than the Kumho (top) but the rim is still very proud compared to most rims: Looks like the Toyo rear is just a bit taller than the Kumho: For any tire geeks out there the Wheel Specialists Inc uses this mounting machine made for fancy rims: $1,950 including mount/balance, shipping, install, tax, and the clean they backs of your wheels for you.
