Kumho have launched their new Extreme Performance Ecsta V730.
Looking at the thread pattern, which looks similar to the older V720, but grooves are more shallow.
Outer shoulder pattern is wider, shallower, looks towards improving overall dry and corner grip, however looks like wet performance will be lower due to shallower thread pattern.

At the moment 6 sizes available, more to come later....

720 was godlike tyres imho. Noisy but gripped great. The 730 doesn't look like it'll work at all in the wet though

The 720 already got weak reviews for wet performance so this one looks down right horrible.

This is Kumho Ecsta V720 ACR, which should be where the Ecsta V730 came about..... :driver:

That looks like track tyres to me.
