Hi guys

After some advice/review on some new rubber for my jcw

Coming from toyo proxies t1rs

Narrowed it down to either

Ecsta LE Sport Kumho KU 39 - 205/45 R17 88Y XL TL

Or
Hankook K110 Ventus V12 Evo Hankook K 110 - 215/45 R17 91Y XL TL

Thinking kumhos as same size but do like the look of the hancocks but it's a differnt size so where do I stand re insurance etc

Helllllllllp

I'm having exactly the same dilemma I'm going for Hankooks 215/35/18 but I would prefer Toyo's but bit expensive.

I've had these on mine for a few month, no issues so far Smile

They did a price match with a company I'd never heard off and Tesco points Wink

And they have them in 205/45/17

I run the Hankooks on my 'S'; very pleased with them; very good in the wet thumbs up
