So every time I flip through the issue of GRM magazine in my desk at work I come back to the Tire Rack add with the picture of the "new" Kumho ECSTA R700 Rally tires. I love the profile and plan on getting a set, but I'm wondering if anyone has tried them and what kind of impression they left.

Man they're cool looking tires.:D

For the street? I'd pass if I were you. My friend Gregg just put a set on his Ascona, which is fine for dirt roads only. They seem better than the Silverstone tires that just came off. But expect to get only 3-5k for mileage out of them, driving easy. For rallying, about 200 miles or so it all. Oh, and they will be very noisy too, at least at highway speeds. But, if you love sideways driving on dirt roads at 80 mph, then get them!
