I have run the 711's for about 10k mi now. I am very pleased with the
performance. I now can stick turns at speeds that would cause the car to
drift when I had the Dunlop sp8000s. noise is not an issue, jury is
still out on the life I can get from them, but so far they appear to be
wearing better than the dunlops, I got very few miles on the dunlops
~16k before they were bald, stout suspension and driving habits I guess.
Same size as the ones you bought (the fenders are rolled on my early
83), I got from tire rack for $45 apiece....at that price I had to try
them since I was happy with the kuhmos on my 20020v
Only drawback is the speed rating is 130mph.... my 0.02
