Ive got Kumho 712s, and I like them alot. They perform really good, once there warmed up.

I would go with the kumhos or the hankook.

Im looking into the Fuzions, anymore reviews around?

BTW Niagara Battery and Tire = crap... bad service and they make you wait for hours...dont go there if you value how you are treated as a customer.

im using kumho 711's ... decent tires ... the bad thing is that they wear out fast so they only last 1 season ... if u have the cash get the 712's ... my buddy has them and he loves them ...

I'm looking at the Falken ZE-512 High Performance All Seasons. Porparts, one of the clubs vendors sells them. They get very good reviews.

205/45/17 $460 tax incl.
215/45/17 $540 tax incl.
