This is my fourth summer with this car and I thought it was time to get some dedicated tires. Damn installers 'teef'd' my Nexxen's A/S which were decent. It had 1 puncture (patched), a a sidewall tear but tread was still in excellent condition. Car didn't have room so they just help themselves to them. Anyway...

Tread is really shallow. I don't know if these will last many seasons.

I installed "new" Kumho tires today. I learned the "hard" way NEVER to deal with Nexen tire co. Good riddance.
I'm sure liking the Kumho.

What is the treadlife guarantee on those 20K miles? That is a good tread block design, not "squirmy" or full of tiny-grooves. What are they?

According to rather "vague" PDF literature from Firestone, hidden in a dense paragraph - those have a 40K treadlife warranty. But they are obviously set up to be performance tires. I think you made a good choice!
Thanks bro.

My decision to go with them were largely financially motivated and they don't look bad. I had to perform an emergency stop this morning and they dug in quite good even in damp surfaces.

The price is right on those tires for sure, doesn't mean you compromised. No point in wasting money on tire choices. How do they corner?

Weather has been damped the last few days. From reviews and some guys from the focus ST crowd say they are really punching above their weight.

You won't be disppoinged in these.
