Kumhos are cheap *** tires plus you are using the wrong size in the front. I would also avoid the ****ty Falkens also. The tread will separate really easily . You can get Pirellis cheap and they will hold up better

Will have them inspected before install. Off subject but what do you guys recommend for keeping my cv3's clean is there like a wax or sealant I can use? Thanks for the feedback guys
I'm trying Rejex sealant right now on my VIP mods... so far OK. There's many wheel waxes or sealants. If you're still running the oem brake pads, you may want to try Akebono ceramics or Hawk (forget which model) to cut down on the brake dust.

Right, I was not happy with the Falkens, too noisy. Pirelli is 74dB, not a silent tire. I'm using Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT. With 70dB this version seems to be quiet. I like to test Michelin as next step. All around 265/30 ZR22, 9x22,offset 27, perfect match.
