Thumbs up what can be run on the street?

Ideally want to run 18x9.5 and 275's. Can I do this w/ -2 degrees camber? Thanks!

Can you elaborate on this please?
How do they work? Can you compare them to Toyo's?
How long before they fall off?
Thanx

The Kuhmo V710, just like the Hoosier A6 and the Hankook z214, is a soft DOT approved R-compound.

They are geared towards autocross or someone looking for a fast single lap at the road course.

They usually heat up very quick(compared to a full slick or a harder road racing spec tire) and also easy to overheat.

They operate at around 200 degrees and get greassy past 250, so hotlapping on them around a road course is out of the question.

Compared to a similar sized harder road racing tire like the Toyo R888 for example,
they offer a lot more grip and it's not unusual to improve over a second off your time per 60' lap.
