My Ride: BMW 330ci
Kumho V700 on 330ci for lapping.

I need a new set of tires for lapping (not racing).
Last year I used a set of Hoosiers that I loved a lot.

I am running 245/40/17

The Hoosiers is a little bit too much for my setup I can`t take fully advantage of them. I don`t really need slick tires to have fun.

This year I am on budget. So I was thinking about the Khumho V700 or the Toyo R888.

The R888 would be perfect for what I am doing but it is not easy to purchase them in my area.

So the Kumho V700 at $170 is a good fit. Easy to purchase and seems to be a good choice.

Is the Kumho V700 a good fit on a BMW 330ci ?

I prefer the Khumo V700. I am currently using the R888 but next time go back to the Khumo.

Look at the Nitto NT-01; like a Toyo RA/1 but better. Prices are great from Discount Tire Direct

The Kumho V700 is probably the best bang for the buck and perform just as good as a Hoosier A6/R6 if not better.
