They are made out of cheaper grade rubber, forget the compound type, but every honest tire dealer will tell you they're not performance tires in the least.

After all my friends who didn't have big money went with Kuhmos came to me after two months complaining because they are junk tires saying they should've spent the extra hundred a tire and bought REAL high quality tires I decided that I'd never recommend them to anyone... ever.

Personally, Michelin/Pirelli are the way to go, so I'd grab the Pilots
I know kumho's are not great tires especially their other lines ( i had a set on my old 17's and they were not confidence inspiring!) but the ECSTA MX's are supposedly the best kumho has and they are competative for the price... I know Pilots are better and so are other tires but It's the price that makes the Kumho's attractive... I mean... icant afford to replace $800 worth of rear rubber every summer..... If the pilots were a little cheaper I'd grab them again for sure....

as far as the driving goes....I'd say its "spirited"... my front pilots are still like brand new...but the rears are totally gone..... I guess I'm a little heavy on the gas off the line....

I'll eventually learn

spining tires costs WAY too much for me

Well, *jerk mode on* strong suggestion: Get a better paying job, a tire sponsor, OR change your driving style a little... Ever seen Days of Thunder? By the way, that's not really serious ^^^ but, I personally would suggest the third option... I probably wouldn't but that's because I have to money for new rubber every summer, haha.

Make sure you read the reviews, and take note of what the driving style of the owners was.

All I know is that the Kumho MX's cannot be compared in anyway to the Ecsta 712, that's like comparing a Michelin Pilot sport to an MXV4.

I know you were joking about the better paying job thing; at least i hope.

but as a side note... I am after all only 19....Im still in school...and my daddy doesn't pay for my shit(car,maintenance,insurance, nothing).... so as far as my part time job goes... its about all i can do to keep my car... so sometimes i cant always get top of the line..

Im not trying to be rude.... ... I'm just stating why im intrested in the cheaper alternative to pilots.... Not that im trying to cheap out on price but expect the same quality or performance.....

BTW thanx for all the input guys...
