I did a search but didn't find any helpful reviews on the Khumos. So I was wondering which of the two you'd recommend for a daily driver/occasional track use and why? I am looking at 205/50/15's on stock GSR rims.
I would probably go with the khumos for a daily driver. The Azenis is more of a track tire, and they wear faster then the khumos. Also the wet tire traction isnt the best with the Azenis. The azenis is an awesome tire for going out to the track though. plenty of grip till they wear down.
Has anyone tried the Khumo MX's? I've read for track use as they get hotter they get stickier. A definite plus. But the sidewalls aren't as stiff so I'd have to up the tire pressure compared to the Azenis.
The Falken Azenis are a great tire for autocross. I ran them in one autocross last season and they helped me run almost three seconds faster than a guy I was previously dead even with.
At $64 a tire, tread wear isn't really a big deal either.
MMMMMM I love the Kumho Ecsta MX tires for $79 bucks a pop they are a great street tire I also have them on my 17x7 OZ racing F1 cups and I went back to them for my 15x7 Kosei K1-TS that weigh in at 10.5lbs I think they are a great bang for the buck tire. Check out TireRack.com they have a feedback support on the MX'S. Good luck with your track times I did not say anything about the Azenis because Ihave had no experience with them.
I have used the MX's auto crossing on fat fives, and oh man did i love them. Car could take turns and stick without having the tire screech or slide. So sticky, and solid tred pattern too. I am gonna try the parada's this summer, and then switch back to the MX's if i dont like. The falken azeni's are great, but not for a daily driver, just track tires pretty much. My buddy had them on his Tib, and he owned a set of 4 over 1 summer. I like to have tires for awhile...
