Ready to race with your Kumho Ecsta V710 tires
The tires are sold, ready to race and do not need to be shaved prior to racing although they may benefit from a heat cycle prior to being used in competition. While the Kumho Ecsta V710 tires do meet the legal D.O.T. requirements, they should not be used for the highway, due to the low miles of wear from these racing tires. They are built for max performance not distance and as such their life span is greatly reduced.
The Kumho Ecsta V710 R-Compound E46 Tires are a formidable tire, well worthy of any track car and will help get the maximum performance out of any vehicle.
