I hated the stock tires. And kumho are no better. Want a good tire go with Nitto invo's or NT05's. That or say screw it all and run a drag radial 24/7 like i will be.

I ended up getting those General g-max as-03 tires.. They seem pretty good so far and were the cheapest tire out there for the 19s.. Haven't had warm weather to REALLY test them out yet though.. I hate kumhos personally had a couple sets on my 04 gt.. Always had good luck w Nitto 555s but didn't offer the size I wanted..

Depends on what kinda kuhmo like these Ecsta V710... 335s used on a guy that races autocross in my area. His Dakota is freakin fast! Destroys guys in imprezas and evos, and it's not even that modded. Only light suspension work and not even lightened.

Sure there are some good reviews, but I would never chose these over Nittos, even if they are much cheaper.

I've used a few different tires now. Continential extreme contact kdw was ok but needs some sidewall reinforcement badly. If ur running a lower profile it would be ok. The.bfg g-force sport has been my budget tire of choice. Not tge grippiest out there but they are predictable, long life, cheap, and corner very well. The bfg KDW or KD tires are wicked. I had trouble breaking them loose. I've got a set of crappy sumuitomos on my new rims to burn off before my next set. I really like a tire with at least a 320 treadwear rating so I can get one year out of them haha.w

These are for daily driving.. I'm buying track wheels and tires this spring.. And no these aren't any harder than nitto 555s (rated at 300 i think) they just have more tread to start with.. As I said though its been cold so haven't been able to really test them out but regardless I'm not a teenager anymore and drive very rationally on the streets.. Save it for the track! Lol.. I was leery about buying generals over Nitto bc I've always been happy w my 555s and never had much luck w other brands (I.e. hankook).. But as of now I'm pretty happy w them and when warmer weather hits I'll report back!
