If I'm on a budget... I would look into the
new Kumho MX....I've been using Kumho's Supra
712 and very happy with it... it has about 90% of
other higher priced brands dry traction, low noise and
good comfort for less than 1/2 of the price. The MX
model is suppose to be a step up of the 712.
Tirerack recently tested Kumho's MX against Michelin
Pilot Sport and BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KD on both
dry and wet track. Here are the result printed on
Best Lap Time:
Avg Lap Time:
My stock original tires perform well on wet roads, and dry roads. They are only a problem when you have a hard rain. I have yet to find a wide performance tire that performs well in a driving rain. I had two different sets of tires with my 1996 Dodge Viper GTS and neither performed well in hard rains.
