Kumho-nized, again!

Woot woot! How are you guys doing? Hope everyone are still on the right path of building and modding your ride. It's like what, more than a year since I last change my tires. As you can see from the pic below, the tires have gone through few track days and countless long distance travel and obviously no longer safe to use! Since Kumho Ecsta XS KU36 is the most affordable and bang-for-the-buck performance tires, it has become my choice once again.

Ouh ya..I've also dropped the rear lower by few mm's to make the car height looks 'equal' front and back. No fender rubbing issues with the 225s as I've rolled the rear fenders few months back! Just need to sort out the front camber to give Mamba the perfect grip. It's gonna be a tough job to have the perfect handling setting with McPherson's strut system. Believe me.

Pricewise is not much different than the last time I change, only RM10 cheaper per piece. However it took me almost two month to go this shop after ordering it coz I was dead busy with work. Haha. Nothing else was changed on Mamba except for the regular periodic maintenance. Money is an issue at the present moment but come next month, a customised header and some handling stuff will be added on to the car. Stay tuned!

If only this Kumho comes in 215/40/17, I'd want to test as well :)

How do the Kumhos hold up on the NSHW in the wet? I'm on RE070 and they feel like they were aqua-planning at times. Scary.
