Kumho ECSTA V710

ECSTA V710 radials are DOT-legal competition tires developed for drivers who want KUMHO's highest level of performance for dry track conditions. Compared to KUMHO's VictoRacer & ECSTA V700 tires, ECSTA V710 radials are designed to provide quicker "turn-in" response, as well as increased traction & cornering speeds. In addition to looking like pro-level racing tires, ECSTA V710 tires perform like them as well, trading longevity for performance. Achieving the best performance requires that fresh ECSTA V710 tires be used, as their performance level will drop off after a typical race weekend's use.

On the outside, the ECSTA V710 tires mold a high-grip tread compound (that runs with tread temperatures of between 210 & 240 degrees Fahrenheit when pushed to the limit) into an asymmetric tread design utilizing a "slick" tread surface with just two circumferential grooves on the inner half of the tread. This maximizes the rubber-to-road contact to increase grip. Beginning with a tread depth of 4/32-inch, they will not require shaving, however they will benefit from heat cycling before competition. On the inside, the ECSTA V710 features radial construction that uses two slightly angled polyester carcass plies (with one ply wrapping around the bead & returning high up the sidewall to provide three actual sidewall plies). The belt package consists of twin lightweight steel belts reinforced by a spirally wrapped circumferential nylon cap ply under the tread.

KUMHO ECSTA V710 tires feature subtle black letters. They are W-speed rated & available in 50-, 45-, 40-, & 35-series sizes for 15" to 18" wheel diameters

NOTES: While ECSTA V710 tires have an inflated shape with rounded shoulders to complement camber-challenged cars, they still benefit from vehicle alignments that offer significant negative camber.

While KUMHO ECSTA V710 radials meet DOT requirements, they are not appropriate for highway use as the expected miles of wear from their racing tread compounds is greatly reduced.
