Kumho VictoRacer V700

The VictoRacer V700 is the original competition member of the Kumho high performance tire family. It is a DOT-legal, race-winning tire which, by capturing national championships at the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) Tire Rack Solo II Nationals & SCCA Road Racing Runoffs, has proven its capabilities in both autocross & road racing competition.

The VictoRacer V700 features an asymmetric tread design molded at 5/32" to 6/32" of tread depth in its two major circumferential grooves. Its tread design features extra wide tread blocks for its outer shoulder (which comprise about 1/3 of the tire's tread width) to maximize cornering grip while promoting tread life (when new, the shoulder blocks are interrupted only by shallow, 1/32" deep lateral grooves). The center & inner shoulder portions of the tread design are comprised of short, stable tread blocks to further enhance handling while providing some wet traction when new (or at near full tread depth). The V700 features a tread compound specifically developed to provide maximum grip, handling & treadlife.

Internally the V700 has two steel belts reinforced with two nylon cap plies to help stabilize the tread area & provide V-speed rated (for 13" & 14" rim diameter sizes) or Z-speed rated (for 15", 16", & 17" diameter sizes) capability. Additionally, three rayon carcass plies with sidewall stiffeners provide high temperature durability & quick steering response. Attractively priced, the Kumho V700 is designed to provide the best traction & treadlife for your racing dollar.

Important Notice: Kumho VictoRacer V700 tires must be shaved to 3/32" - 4/32" of remaining tread depth for any track use in dry conditions.

Kumho advises that the VictoRacer V700 DOT-legal competition radial must be shaved prior to use in dry track conditions. If this tire is not shaved, excessive wear may occur causing the tire to wear to the cords prematurely in a localized area.

Tire heat cycling will not prevent the excessive localized wear of full tread depth tires but will continue to enhance the tire consistency & wear on shaved tires.

The VictoRacer V700 should only be used at full tread depth (6/32") on the track in wet conditions.
