View Full Version : New Khumos?

04-02-2004, 10:56 PM
Any of you Southern boys, who get to go racing earlier than us Northerners, try the new Khumos yet? How do they compare to the older Khumo or Hoosier?

The only IT (other than ITE) size that they will release this year is 205/50/15 and thats not even a great IT size.
All the other sizes slated for release this year are 17s and 18s. This info comes from a Kumho dealer.

Compare this to the first sizes of the new Hoosier (225/50/14, 205/50/15 and 225/45/15) and you get great insight into which tire manufacturer is focused on the IT community.

I think I'll even post this in the discussion forum and see if I can drag up a good argument.

The Kumho people at Road Atlanta last weekend said the 14s would be out in August

I've heard these bad things in the last two days.




It kinda sucks. I was rearing to sink my teeth into these. http://Forum.ImprovedTouring.com/it/frown.gif

Thanks for the responses guys. I guess this makes this season's tire choice a lot easier.
