New car tyre promises “best of both worlds”


With the demands from the race track to every day driving quite different, for the more passionate driver switching between the weekday ‘Road Angel’ and your weekend ‘Track Demon’ has always meant not only the switch in tyres, but also spending extra money buying separate sets, plus the effort of carrying and changing them.

In view of this, Kumho Tyre has designed the ultimate product to save you from having to do just that. Their ECSTA V720 is street-legal and promises the ultimate handling and durability needed in the high-speed conditions of a performance circuit, while claiming the safest drive off the circuit at regular speeds.

What is the V720?

Not only does the V720 offer “the best value among circuit tyres and ultimate safety performance in wet road conditions”, but present a hard-wearing everyday use tyre you cannot look past, especially if you place a tad harder demands on your wheels than your average driver.

The dynamic sidewall design and performance-oriented pattern, and Super Hard Apex, is the racing car technology in the product, and allows for excellent running stability. The use of a high-strength carcass further increases the tyre’s durability and handling performance, on and off the track.

The ECSTA V720 is designed for the rigours of the track, demonstrating its best grip performance during cornering and excellent handling off the track too. With the high-grip synthetic resin maximising the compound, it increases grip as the temperature of the tyre rises – which is where the multi-mixing step technology improves the dispersion of the carbon black.

Kumho Tyre believes that “every millisecond counts” in racing competitions, and that a tyre’s ultra high-performance capability makes for a safer, more reliable drive while on the roads.

The ECSTA V720 tyre is available from all Kumho Tyre stockists nationwide.
