i have them, they are my second set, and i LOVE them. i cant really speak for how long they last, cuz i have some negative camber goin on in the rear, but as far as grip, they are excellent. wet and dry grip is susbstatially better than my Yokos that i had before. i would say they are noisier than stock, but still pretty quiet. i have exhaust, so i cant really tell, but i would recommend them to anyone, and i do i have a bubble in one of mind, but that is my own fault. the only downside is that their sidewalls are basically vertical, with no rim gaurd at all, or protection from a slightly curved sidewall, so you have to be VERY careful.

they get a 2 from me!

i would think any low pro tire with a V pattern would suck in snow. if you have performance tires, you should NEVER use them in winter unless they are all season, and even so, you should still get winter tires.

that sux, but they are summer tires!

Ive had these on for about 17,000 miles now, when I just had intake, with stock tires I could light em up in the rain, after the kumhos they would just grab in the rain, no spin! Awesome grip all around. After getting more mods ie headers, exhaust and pullies they spin like mad just like the stockers did, even more!
Which makes me wonder what would stockers do if I put them on now!

THe rubber is really soft so it will react to the slightest amount of negative camber, and rocks and debris get stuck in the tire easily

They are the most UNDERRATED tires. I'm on my second set (my first went 45K) and really wanted to try some Nittos or Yokos, but I just couldn't pass up the price I was getting.

damn, those are really good prices, the kumhos are usually around $120

but I hear theres a newer design out now to replace the ecsta supra 712, which is most likely why theyre so cheap

I just got new tires and the 712's were one of the tires that i was considering, those and the Kumho Ecsta kh11's that were a few dollars more. I compared both of them on Tire rack and they both had really good ratings, but in every category the ecsta's were a little better than the Supra's and when i read the reviews for the supra's, people said that they were a little louder than stock. So i decided to get the Ecsta's, i love them! they get great traction and are just as quiet as stock. Also, which someone said b4, if you print out the price quote from tire rack then bring it to your local tire dealer( mine was town fair tire) they most likely will match it and u don't have to worry about shipping. Town fair matched it and beat it by 5%. but i took it one step farther ...... I got the quote from tire rack, then did a little chopping! i lowered the price by a few dollars (don't go crazy) and put that tire rack was doing free shipping for a limited time, so basically i took like 50 or 60 dollars off the total quote, then i printed that out and brought that in and my scam worked!! ended up getting them really cheap(even cheaper than the supra's!)Town fair was selling them for $108 each and i got them for 66 each! Sorry for the long post, just had alot of info to share.
