What tires are better?

Most of the guys here do not like the Kuhmos, they claim they roll under. I never had a problem with mine. I have heard good things about the Falken Tires as well. Which one is cheaper?

out of those 2, i'd choose the Kum Hoe over the falken, ONLY because I have no idea how the falkens are, but i know that KUMHOE's blow. I still can't beleive all the rave they keep getting. They are shit compared to parada spec2s and p-zeros

The paradas are twice the price. I can't justify spending over $100 per tire when I am a student I just don't have that kind of cash.

EDIT:The P-Zero's are the same. Twice the price. If you have the cash both of these tires are high quality, but for someone like me they are way out of the price range.

Toyo Proxes are what I would get. A very nice all season tire and they're sticky.
But out of the two, I'd go the Falkens.

yes. kuhmo's are trash. i have them on one set of my rims. the other set is wrapped nicely in a set of bridgestone s-03 pole positions.

yes. i am that much of a badass that i have 2 sets of rims :) and no one set isn't the stockers :)

I run dunlop sp sport a2's...but it rains alot, is very hot and overal grip and wearability matter most to me...had p7000's..they stink!...treadwear of 420 and A and AA ratings.....when your carting a toddler in a tropical storm...its nice to know I have best wet grip in its class. I have almost 20k on them and would recomend them to anyone whose primary goal isn't racing, and Dunlop was one of the only company's that honor their milage warrenty down here..most just pro-rate

falken's are the best deal on the market right now.

14's are like 46 dollars

15's are like 52 dollars

for street/auto x tires, they're the best.

$89 for 205/45/16's for my spec 2's.

the aziens are good tires, but are more race-y than street tires IMO. good auto x'ers, but not so hot for street.
