Just curious, what was wrong with the Kumhos? I've only had my SPTs for about 4k miles but so far they are awesome.

Before this car, I always had the best experiences with Dunlop Sport tires, but I've not seen many people here running them. Never used the KDW but that's a great price and I've heard pretty good things about them.

ive got about 15000 miles on them and they are about bald. i had some alignment issues so i know that killed alot of the wear on it. i had over 35000 miles on my bf goodrich tires and had a 40 series.

LG Paul just got those tires for his new rx-8 wheels a few weeks ago... maybe he'll chime in with initial impressions.

I've used the KDW's for a few years now. Treadwear is great, just as it's 320(?) rating suggests. The only thing is.. they are tremenously loud, but the grip is fantastic, wet/dry. Great tire, great tread pattern.
