Nexen N3000 vs. Kumho 712

I'm looking at new tires to go along with the new rims i aquired from JUS_CRZN. They are 17" Momo Racers. Very clean for being 8 years old.

So i'm looking into both these tires as they are in my budget range. The nexen's are $129.99 balanced and installed each and the Kumho 712's are $134.99 balanced and installed for 225/45r17.

I've done alot of resarch on the web for review's on both tires and can't make up my mind. What do you guys think?

Thanks

Jasper

Just put the nexens on my car, have nothing bad to say about them so far. On the other hand, heard some bad things about the 712's.

I don't recommend either.

Great cheap summer tires in that size:
Kumho SPT (which replaced the 712 3 years ago)
General Exclaim UHP
Fuzion ZRi
Falken FK-452
