I currently have Kumho ECSTA Supra, as my 3rd set of tires.

Put them on right before a track event last year. So far, I like them. At almost 1/2 the cost of the Michelin Pilot Sports that they replaced, the seem like a good bargain, so far...The original Dunlop SP2000 lasted about 25,000 miles, the Pilot Sports
lasted about 23,000 miles. Only have about 6,000 on the Kumho's, and they still look, and react well.

I have run them in the past. They are a fantastic bang for the buck. Not the best tires on the market but they are tough to beat for the price. They are a big improvement over many of the Michelens for less than half the price. I would not hesitate to buy them again.

RE: I currently have Kumho ECSTA Supra, as my 3rd set of tires.

Thank You.
Did you tried cornering hard under the rain and in dry roard?

I really like cornering.
I'll show you tomorrow my Potenza S-03 shoulders how ended up after 25.000 Km (16.000 Miles)!
They are almost 2mm left! and the soulder there is not amymore! [:(] quite sad condidering the price I've spent!

Now.. The Kumho cost exactly half of the price!
But my greatest fear is .. cornering on dry and on water.
The rest is not important for me.
I don't want to hadle the car in an external lane on the highway at 80Mph because the grip is not optimal.
I hope you understand what I mean.. [:)]

I currently have 17" Kumho ECSTA Supras on my SLK320. They stick to the road very well in corners. I like them a lot better than the Michelins that I had on it before and they were half the price like was said.

Sounds like the Kumhos might be good for me too. Where can I get them at a good price? Thanks!

Tirerack.com carries the Kumho's and their prices are good.

Yes.. they cost here in italy 109 Euro. Included shipping to your house.
We can't buy from Tirerack.
They are too far. Custom and shipping will not worth the price. [;)]
