t0ad Posted December 1, 2006 Share Posted December 1, 2006 So, today started off kind of odd. Shortly after pulling out of the driveway I start to hear a small, repeating, thunking sound coming from my left rear area. I dismiss it as a chunk of gravel in the tread and go on my way to work. I bust my balls all day at work (which is quite odd for my rather laid back IT position) up until it's time to leave. I get to the car and start to drive off only to hear a rather loud and pronounced thunking from the left rear tire. Yep, somewhere along the way I got a nice large woodscrew embedded in my tire. I'm taking this as a sign from above that it's finally time to get rid of my RE92s. I've read through a hojillion threads on tires and I've boiled it down to 2 choices for my situation: 1. 'spirited' driving (who doesnt in this thing?) 2. all season (we've been known to get the random large snowfall here in WV) 3. decent treadlife 4. won't make my wallet cry So, I'm thinking either Kumho Ecsta ASX's or ContiExtremeContacts. I dont think I saw a thread where these two were really compared with each other. Basically I want the most grip that I can get in the dry and wet without sacrificing the snow traction (thus Pzero Neros are out). Any opinions..? I'm kinda leaning towards the Contis (though the reports of the 'uneven-ness' of them worry me), but the mail in rebate on the Kumho's is also appealing Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
