712's really aren't that bad. Internet chatter seems to convince people otherwise.
FWIW, I had a pair of them combined with a pair of expensive Goodyear Eagle GS-D2's with my last set of wheels, and whether I put one set on the back or vice versa the car had essentially the same balance in steady state cornering. The Kumho's actually had slightly better steering response and sidewall strength.
