Among the Kumho products, the only tires I have a large amount of experiexnce w/ are the 711's & 712's. If you do get the MX's please post a report on how they did for you on wet/dry street conditions & auto-x. I'm curious to see how you liked them. Thanks.

The winning STS car at the SCCA Nationals was wearing MX's. Can't be that bad.
Actually running them now. Better in the rain then the Falkens but I think they give up a little grip to the Azenis on the Autox course (at least on my car). Tire wear has been identical. Please be careful this winter as both tires are equally worthless even with a dusting of snow.
