Kumho MX

I just put a set on my car and I will have to say that I am rather pleased with it's performance so far.

The handleing and ride are great. They stick like glue. Although the ride is a tad bit louder the hadleing is the trade off as well as the price.

I would reccomed these tires.

YES...thats all I really need to say.

The MX's are awesome. They compete with the Goodrich G-Force T/A KD's but are 75 bucks less a tire and last longer than the KD's

I would reccomend the MX's to anybody who wants a performance tire.
I'd like a set of MX's in 275s eventually for the EVO

What tires are you replacing/comparing them to? I have a set of Yoko Paradas on now and the Ecsta 712's before that. I almost picked up a set of MX's.

How would you rate them in a direct comparison handling wise to the stock tires?

Better or worse in the dry?

Better or worse in the rain?

Thanks,

Keith

I've had mine for a while now. They stick better than the stockers, but I think they have more noise. After they wear a bit they get LOUD!! My car sounds like it's got 44 inch mudders on it. I thought it was a BAD wheel bearing or something in the drivetrain but I had it all checked out and it is nothing but tire noise.

I'm going to go with the new falkens next. This will be happening very soon.

I had the MXs as my second set of street tires (am now on my 5th). At autocross I found they tended to roll over on to the shoulders more than I would have liked, although I was something of a n00b at the time and tended to overdrive the car a lot. The next 2 sets were Falken Azenis Sports RT-215s, gripped superbly and no issue with sidewall stiffness, but heavy. At the track they did tend to grease up a bit but were still fairly predictable and grippy even when overheated. I drove the second set mostly-worn during NorCal's "record" rainy season; made driving a bit "interesting" at times. It was during this time I started autocrossing and tracking on separate race rims and tires. After the 2nd set of Azenises wore out I put on Hankook RS2 Z212s in the same size (245/45-17). Grip is as good if not better than the Falken RT-215s; the 'Kooks are lighter, better in the wet and in standing water. They've been favourably compared with the new Falken RT-615s by many national-level ST-class autocrossers, and are priced lower than the Falkens. Highly recommended.
