The Kumho 712's are a good inexpensive tire for this application IMO as long as the water never freezes under them.

Best bang for the buck is always Kumho. If you are looking at an auto-x/race tire, the v700 is excellent. they were only $115 each for 225/50/15.

for a street/auto-x tire, the 712 is good.

Kumho always makes the more affordable tires in their category. and the quality is up to par with everybody else.

for autocross street tires, kumho doesnt offer anything fast.

I agree... but for the price, it is the best.

Hmm, i disagree again.

Falken Azenis. My last set was under 300 dollars total, 205-50VR15

Thats cheaper than 712s, and they have FAR more grip

I believe we've heard this debate before - he was just looking for agressive street tires. The 712's are not only less expensive than the Azenis but they last much longer.

If he had said competition or autocross, that would have been my recommendation.

Has anyone heard anything about the Ectsa MX yet?

The Azenis were cheaper than my 712s in 205/50x15"

I got 'em for cheaper than that and they were just delivered yesterday!

http://www.vulcantire.com/

$63. per tire total was $252. and $29. shipping... I ordered them Tuesday this week and they just showed up yesterday at 11AM.

Great site, great company and great prices, not to mention very quick... And BTW Discount tire direct told me that they were going to phase out the 205/50/15 tire selection based on weak sales... I tried there first but, got 'em faster and cheaper from Vulcan...

Good luck,

A.

PS they don't offer your size for the Azenis but, they do offer the Pirelly P7000, Falken 451, 502 and 512 Ziex and the Avon ZZ-1...

PPS the Azenis is really a dry traction max grip tire and if that's not what you want especially for the limited treadwear then, I do suggest the Khumo 712's
