Kumho Ecsta W710
radials are Track & Competition D.O.T. tires developed for
drivers participating in autocross and road racing events in
moderate to heavy rain and want Kumho's highest level of
performance for wet conditions. Compared to Kumho's
VictoRacer and Ecsta V700 tires, Ecsta W710 radials are
designed to provide increased hydroplaning resistance and
wet traction. While all Ecsta W710 tires meet minimum D.O.T.
standards, they are not suitable for highway use.
The Ecsta W710 features an extreme wet tread compound molded
into a directional tread design developed during years of
Formula 3, Super GT and ALMS racing experience for
outstanding wet acceleration, braking and cornering
performance. The Ecsta W710 features an advanced mold shape
design that optimizes footprint contact area and pressure
distribution for superior traction, while special sidewall
construction enhances driver feel and control.
The Ecsta W710 tires have a symmetric internal construction
and directional tread design that allow them to be mounted
for use on either side of the car. They feature two steel
belts reinforced by a spirally wound nylon under the tread
on top of a three-ply nylon polyester radial carcass.
The tire's optimum operating temperature is 195 degrees
