I know Kumho makes good Z rated tires, but made in Japan better. ;)

I had kumho before and when i hit a very severe pothole, the kumho was torn 0.6 inch deep and 1.5 inch long, don't ask about the wheel. It happened only around 6-9 months after I replaced my toyo with the kumho, so it felt like a bad omen to me. The toyos also grip better than the kumhos, imo it offsets the $25 difference.

The Toyos will grip better than the Kumhos for sure..
but it would help if you told us the specific model of each tires you had??
I mean, you can't compare Toyo TS-1 to Kumho 712s.. they are not in the same league..
also, only $25?? must have been the Toyo FZ4 and not the TS-1

Stylin,
I say if you are getting the RH Evo C2, then get the Kumho.. another alternative is the Falken FK-451.

And like I said before.. which specific Kumho and Toyo tire??

I have Toyo Proxes FZ4... they are alright. Sometimes I wish they would grip better. I liked the Nitto 450 Extremes on my 97 Prelude better.
