the treadwear on the kuhmo's is either 280 or 360 i forgot...but i know it's one of the two<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by vabeach_lude:
I don't know if I can afford to use the tires for only 18-22k miles. But the testimonials about these tires on Tire Rack were real convincing. I was specifically looking for a summer tire too though.
How would you compare the tread life of the Sumitomo to a Kuhmo Supra or stock tire?</font>
If this is true you've got to have some kind of problem with your car... like toe-out or something. Either that or you're doing constant burnouts. I've never seen wear that fast without some kind of abusive (not necessarily intentional) use.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by 99Prelude_LC:
I have the kumhos on my front tires. I've had them for about 6000 miles and they're worn down to the wear bar already! I called and the guy said it would be covered under warranty but i had to bring it in. I don't really beat on my car enough to wear it down that fast. I guess it was just all the crappy weather we had here over the winter. THey're supposed to have a 280 tread wear rating.</font>

What's the best tires out there ?
Pirelli ? Kumho ? Leave price out of this first.
