    Kumho XS are the only non-track only tires I have found that hold the power.

    Falken 452 - 235/40 on a 17 inch rim. I've been very pleased so far, and the 235s only rub when I hit a significant bump, or a reasonable bump while cornering really hard.

    They didn't sell the Kumho tires that I wanted in my size.

    I'd love to get a new set of Bridgestone PLayz for my MR2, they are amazing tires.

    Those conti's are good tires though, I was considering a set a while back.
    Actually the UTQG is set by the manufacturer so it doesn't mean shit.

    They are a good tire. I've heard that they can get a bit scary in the rain though.

    Up here in the PNW people seem to go with the Dunlop Star Specs or the RE11s.

    Some people have been racing on the RS3s but no reviews of them in the rain.

    I voted for hankook cause I LOVE my rs2s.

    BUT they have been discontinued and the rs3 does not come in 14" sizes.

    I am planning on getting star specs next. I don't know where (other than tirerack) to get them.

    I work at a goodyear store and I called the warehouse and they had never heard of them. (goodyear owns dunlop)

    Anyone use Yoko AVS intermediates before they were discontinued years ago? They were great tires and the ES100s that replaced them aren't. I'm using cheap Kumhos on the alltrac now which are "ok" but then, many tires would be "ok" on an alltrac with basically stock power. Michelin pilot sports have done well on the Supra in the past but are painfully expensive.

    Haven't ran those but I've been hearing good stuff about the Yokohama S.drive, nice well rounded tire good for daily driving and some spirited driving. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tests/...y.jsp?ttid=131 not an autocross tire but a good summer tire

    MR2 has Falken FK452s on it. 255s in the rear, 215s in the front. They seem like a decent tire. Definately great for the money.

    I run Firestone INDY 500 FireHawk Performance tires on my MG rear end. They run me about $150 each, but they grip so sweet and when im braking, banking and heel-toeing, they squeal up something mean and make me smile everytime!

    Rears are 295/50/15 and my fronts are from PepBoys, they are 265/50/15.

    Why is the option only limited to one tire? On my Alltrac I have Toyo Proxes on the back and Dunlop SP3000's up front. On the Jeep I have Bridgestone Potenzas and on the SSGT I have Hercules...but those are being swapped for some N3000(ZR) Nexxens OR maybe some Dunlop Direzzas.

    Because thats blasphemy! lol I am loyal to Firestone, except when I buy BF Goodrich. I dont like all types of random tires, and im deffinately no fan of Kumho. Kumho is the cheapest of the cheap out here, you buy it at discount tire if you cant afford the BF Goodrich or Firestone ones! lol

    Firestone = bridgestone...

    If you think Kumho is cheap... try nexen, kelly (subsidary of goodyear/dunlop), Wanli, *insert chinese tire manufacturer*

    Every manufacturer makes at least a few cheap (usually crap) tires. Most manufacturers also make good ones. An example is Goodyear, they make the integritys, which are garbage, but they also make the F1 GS-D3, which is a pretty damn good tire.

    I've driven (and raced) on many, many different tires. But for me the comfort and life of the tire is always below the overall grip and response of the tire for the purpose (I have summer tires, all seasons, race tires ("Street" and DOT slicks), and winter tires and swap through them as I see fit).


    I'm a tire whore...

    50% of autocrossers on slicks use Hoosiers, 40% use Kumhos, the other 10% use whatever else.

    Like I said, sounds like you've tried some cheap Kumhos, and that's exactly what you got. The new Kumho rains are AMAZING

    I use nitto and i swear by them. I use them on my truck mudgrapplers. When i had them on my mustang it was the first time i ever hooked up enuff to take my front tires off the ground. I used to use micket thompsons. I cant wait til put some nittos on my celica. Ill give them a good thrashing and let ya know how they stand up.

    Yokohama S. Drives.

    Always find them priced right, and they have held up to some amazing mileage with minimal wear. They're not the greatest in heavy rain, but they are perfect for performance touring.
