I just saw this.

Kumho ECSTA V710 Tire Eligibility Suspended

TOPEKA, Kan. (April 6, 2004) – Kumho Tire has announced the discontinuation and collection of its ECSTA V710 Competition tire.

In a written statement that cited inconsistent test results relating to tread splice and tread area durability as the primary reason for the discontinuation, the tire manufacturer also said that the sale of the V710 would cease immediately and that any tires in the market will be collected from consumers.

Consumers who have purchased the ECSTA V710 Competition Tire are eligible for free tire replacement and have their choice between the Kumho ECSTA V700 or Victoracer tire. The tires may be turned in at the dealer where they were purchased or consumers can call 1-800-445-8646 ext. 342 to arrange for tire return and replacement.

In light of the product’s discontinuation of sales and Kumho’s effort to collect existing product from consumers, SCCA is suspending, immediately, the eligibility of the Kumho ECSTA V710 for use in Club Racing and Solo events until further notice.

Also, until such notice is given, this suspension includes any subsequent, newer-model Kumho tires.

For further information, visit Kumho Tire’s website at Kumhousa.com/V710.asp.

I just bought some of the falcon 502's which is a kind of all season tire and they kind of suck. I mean they look cool and hold up well but I really think that my stock firestones held to the road better than these. Just a heads up ya know.

Geez Rollon! Those tires are expensive. I have Toyo's now, but I'd have to say I like Yokohamas. They've got some new designs coming out soon!
