Where are the new Goodyear F1 asymetric's? They are the ones I have on now, and they are GREAT tires.

Don't worry, 1-15 were the all-season tires. Falken Ziex 912 won that category, but was dinged for snow traction and tread life.

Looks to me Kumho Ecsta SPT is a good buy.

Kumho SPT's are great! Plus you get a little more bang for you buck...they run a little wider than most tires.

I agree with #1 for choice for summer tyres.

I loved the Kumho ecsta SPTs on my last car.

I was considering switching to the Nitto Invos when my stock run-craps wear out, but I'm surprised they're ranked so low in this comparison. Maybe I'll stick with the good old Kumhos when the time comes.

I will be installing khumo ecstas in my car soon with my new wheels, it looks like I made the right decision without having to spend too much money.
