    Kumho's are good but they are cheap and don't last long. I would go with one of the BFG's.

    I can tell you from my experience-the KDWS give excellent traction in the wet, snow and ice. When new they give great dry traction also-no other issues that I didn't like about them. Depends on what kind of conditions you get where you live.

    ALso depends on it you just want a cheap set of tires or what kind of driving you do. I use to run Kumho's and noticed that driving on curvy rds they just don't hold up at all. I got away from those and now running Cooper Zeons. Like them better but gonna run Bfg's next time around.

    I would go with the BF Goodrich G Force TA KDWS. They are really good tires and they last a while. That is what is on our car and they are amazing.

    I feel that the best tire is Michelin. With Michelin I get great traction in dry or wet conditions and great cornering ability. The ware index is great. Also with an air inflation of 32 pounds per, (checked regularly) I get good gas milage. So, of-course, My vote is for Michelin.

    IMO Kuhmo is the best bang for you buck tire out there. I ran 712's on the f-body for a while and have ASX on the fronts now. I also ran ASX's on the wife's GTP. The ASX is a good all season tire but I preferred the 712's. I will probably go back to 712's on the front of the f-body after my ASX's are done. I have KDWS on the GTO and they seem to be doing fine. Not much off the line traction but do well in wet or snow. I would go with Kuhmo but like I said, that's just my opinion.

    i just replaced the not so good stock goodyears on my ss, and i decided to pick up 4 bfg fuzion tires. so far so good they hook up way better then the stock ones and do pretty good in the rain.
    i picked them up for about 115/each from aafes
    just my opinion
