I just got an email from someone at Kuhmo:
Kumho is manufacturing tires at the moment. It looks as though early production tires are headed for Europe and U.S. supply should be send in June. Thanks for considering Kumho tires!

Jose, they should be here beginning to middle of June. Trust me... the day I receive them I will let you know they have it our shores! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif I don't know if you saw the weights of the the new tires but they are within 2lbs of the Hooters! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

Take Care,
Dave

According to John Purner of CCW these tires are supposed to be pretty hot. The 335 series tire is actually closer to a 355! I am trying to find out sizes and diameters (as well as hard availability dates.

I will update you if I hear anything. I can't wait to see them.

Which company owns Kumho ? (I believe it's South Korean). Is 'Kumho' an acronym ?
