Default Kuhmo KU36.. street semi slick..

Alright, had the Cum-ho rep in today, and lookie lookie whats new in the line up.

These are a street legal Semi slick, very soft.. They are definitely not an everyday tyre.. they are also a high speed/load rating ( 95W).

ATM they only come in 235-40-18, but they are releasing the usual 235-45-17 through to a 275, and 18s will go through to a 315 !

They have only got the 18s now, these have only been in the state for a week.

they are going for round $280 each fitted and balanced in the 18s.. any Kumho dealer can get them ( come see me and i'll pull fingersigns at you !, and maybe give you a smile.)



Pete.

Not yet, but soon they are bringing in the rest. I'll give yas an update when i hear whats out.

Sidewalls felt good too, felt a bit thicker then a standard tyre.

Anywhere selling kumho will be able to get them in, prices seem pretty good too.. a midrange 235-40-18 is about that price, not a semi.

Yes they do!!

Anyone here using/used Hankook R-S2's?? Have a harder compound so more of a daily but will be getting some from WW on John's advice. Just want to make sure they will last longer than Toyo Proxes TS1's. R-spec's will be on a different set of rims

So they are basically the new pattern Kumho R Spec...and what is the price of the 235/45/17? And do they come in different compounds like RE55's and DZ03's?
