I'm shooping for this year's tires and I am down to three choices. The Kumbos are cheap and work very well, and the other two are about the best you can buy and cost twice as much. I plan to drag race and autoX on them. Would you guys spring the extra money for the better tires, or get the kumbos and feel less guilty laying a patch.

i've rode on dunlop sp's and kumho's and I like the kumho's better...I heard the breaking point on the kumho's is 400hps but other than that they are a great tire. I also heard they are good autox tires as well. If your a serious autoxer than you should get the g-force.
There is a tuning company in the states that does supercharger kits for porsches and they say the kumho's are very similar to the big buck tires performance wise.

and the best part is their cheap!!

I'm riding on the g-Force T/A KDW's now. And I love them, although there is a little bit more road noise, but is worth the performance. I bought them when bridgestone had that g-tech meter promotion. I'm happy with them so far, but go with the kuhmos if you are going to be leaving rubber. :)
