quote:I'll third the recommendation for the Kumhos. I have the HP4 in 205/55/16 and I love them. Great traction both wet and dry, they're quiet, and they wear great. They do ride a little rough, but that's probably entirely related to the fact I keep almost 40lbs in them and they are lower profile.... I sure wouldn't want them with any less sidewall than I have though.
Originally posted by Mike242GT: I'll second the recommendation for Kumhos. They're good and cheap. I put a set of Kumho Ecsta HP4s on my wife's '94 Volvo 944 turbo (205/60-15). Excellent wet traction, H-rated and $43 apiece from Tire Rack. Can't beat that.
quote:I find that strange/amusing, as my accord came with mxv4 tires and they barely lasted 22,000 miles with very little driving. I've had both tigerpaw hr and kumho hp4 716 (205/60/15) on my car and I'd rather have the kumho. I feel safer in the wet with them, plus they are cheaper. Emergency handling is much better also. If you're looking for a quiet ride, try VISA tires. Produced by falken and are VERY quiet.
t the rate Michelins wear and the newer ones are even longer lived, the car will definitely not be around before new Michelins wear out.
