Just got a set of kuhmo asx tires installed on my wife's 04 3 they are on stock 17 size 205/50/17. My wife immediately noticed the car has a quieter ride than with the stock rsa's and also that the car took bumps much better now. After driving the car I agree and think the car handles better as well, this used to be my car so I know how bad the rsa's were and wanted a good all season for my wife. I didn't even feel safe driving in rain with them, so I definately didn't want her to have to drive in the snow with them. My only complaint is I don't like the way the kuhmos look, The seem to be bulging from the rim and have to much crap written on the side wall for my taste. My opinion may change once I clean the car and shine the new tires up. Overall, I can't believe how good these tires are, especially since I got them for 389 shipped from tirerack. They put the rsa's to shame.
