    Well.. I've had some Kumho ASX's for the past 18,000 miles and they're already worn out pretty bad. There is no mileage warranty on them so I'm pretty much fucked. I've kept up with tire rotations, alignments, etc., but I guess them having a soft compound really hurt.


    I've got an 01 Accord with 17" wheels.. My car sees snow once a year tops, rain pretty often. I want something that is going to last me more than 18,000 miles.

    Suggestions? Not looking to blow an ass load of money either.

    i've had the BF Goodrich g-force sports on my car for quite some time now and they still have a good amount of tread left and weren't very expensive at all. I think they handle great, have great traction in the rain but probably shouldn't be driven on in the snow.

    well...they ranked 2nd in their category so that says something. If you go with any type of DD + occassional snow tire, im thinking the Pirelli Zero M+S tire is probably a good bet
