Pretty happy with the Kumho Ecsta SPTs. They were on the car when I got it, but have seen some nasty rain on the road with em. Excellent dry traction also.

+1 on those. I have had my car since new and have gone through too many sets of tires to count. I got the Kumhos only because at the time, they were the only all season tire in a 255-50-17 that was z rated. They are wearing real good, actually were decent in some snow last year, quiet and have nice ride. No complaints.

I had the nitto 450's on like ten years ago. I am sure the ones now are different, but the 450's I had were aweful- they ran narrower than BFG and they had **** for traction.

Having had the Kumho SPT's in the past (excellent summer tire, BTW), I'd put my all-weather tire money on Kumho ASX's.

When the temps get below 45 degrees, the ASX's are far superior to the SPT's on wet and dry pavment.

They'll also last about 20K miles longer than the SPT's.

Just $.02 from someone who've had both.

Very happy with the Invos.. I have them on my vette as well, they hook very well too and ride quiet.. I will buy them again.
