I need to change my tires bad because they are pretty bald. i looked at tirerack.com and found some tires that fit me. Basically, im looking for a tire that performs well and is a fairly good price. I saw the Kumho Escta KH11. Anyone tried these tires and how does it perform as well as long lasting. I greatly appreciate the advice before i buy these tires.

I have some Falkens that were brand new when I got my Camry thanks to the previous owner :). They feel nice and smooth and give a good ride...

320 Treadwear will give you good life, unless you race on them. They won't be sticky enough to grip good, so you'll slide and then spin the front tires alot and burn em away. Happened to me with my Kumho's :) The tops of the treadblocks were melted and flared back from the spinning tires... granted I was very hard on the gas, but a better tire would've gripped rather than slid, and I wouldn't have that problem. Next tires for me: Falken Azenis :D

I have a set on my car, they got rave reviews on Tirerack. I think I have about 6K on mine, they seem to ride well, but I haven't been overwhelmed with their performance. They're OK in the wet, but honestly are nothing better than the Cooper tires I had on the car before...

Also note that I went from 195/70/14 to 205/60/15, so I would have hoped to have had some gains just from the larger contact patch, all other things being equal.
