V70A medium compound Kumhos are on now as well as an alignment refresh, replacing the AD08Rs, same 285 18 inch . Early testing they are much better at holding power, better all round cornering and much less road noise. But to be expected for a 50 wear rating tyre.
Speaking of low thread-wear tires - does anyone know how different brands of slicks compare to each other? I can't find any recent tire reviews for slicks that compare across brands. I have asked a few racing drivers and they also don't seem to know, as competitions limit the tire choice to one brand/sponsor. Obviously soft compounds are faster while hard compounds last longer, and obvisouly some brands spend more on marketing than others, but which brands offer the best technology, value for money etc?
Early V70A feedback. They are much quieter than the AD08s . Don't tramline as much , steering feel is lighter and more direct, definately better lateral grip (not suprising). Far more sticky. Will do some further testing . Possibly 1/4 mile and rolls.
Thanks for the feedback, @rev210. This tire seems to have limited availability in the USA (two places I found only had 17"). AUS lists a host of sizes. 18" max, so I'm out :-( ... but if there is a USA supplier that carries sizing beyond 17" that's good for others reading, I suspect.
Not many miles maybe 100 or so.How many miles on them so far and do you think they are suitable for street.
Have you driven them in the cool/wet yet?
