    Question Anyone run these tires? Reviews?

    BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDW 2

    The reviews on the site all look good, I'm just wondering if anyone with a 3/S has or is running them.

    I ran the KDW-1s on my SL about 8 years ago and they are great! Fairly quiet and could handle everything a high school kid with a sporty car could throw at it... Except that one time I forgot I didn't have a VR4 with AWD and flew into a median...

    I DD the car in the summer only and I have Pilot Sport Pros on it now suck in the rain, no traction these say they grip in wet and dry conditions and the tread pattern is sick. I think I'll be ordering a set. Thanks Yoshi.

    I've been running those tires for about 6 years now. I've had Michelins, Pirellis, Goodyears, and Nitto's on the car before and the KDWs are by far, the best tire I've ever run. Plus, they stand out at car shows with that aggressive tread pattern. I've autocrossed with them and they're very predictable when run hard. The only thing I can't give an opinion on is wet weather traction. I live in San Diego and it doesn't rain much here, and even when it does, the Stealth doesn't come out of the garage.

    I would say they are great for wet conditions too. I've had numerous people comment on how I never seem to hydroplane during flash floods.

    They are also quite inexpensive for their performance.

    Yeah, first I noticed the tread pattern... then the price... then the performance and I was pretty sold on them lol. @93STLTH... I would never run Michelins again you pay for the name is what it seems, the Pilot Sport Pros are hard as hell, plus suck in rain and they sure didn't hold up well to my driving habits edges are really torn up @ $245 a peice not what I had expected from them.

    Well it looks like I need new tires so maybe I'll give them a shot.

    If you need wet weather tyres consider the Falken FK452's [already mentioned them to green-lantern]. In a tyre review by Wheels magazine [australian mag] a few years ago they were rated as the best wet weather tyres avalable and only 2nd overall by 0.5% IIRC beaten by the Goodyear F1 asymetric that are twice the price. I bought them cus of the review and they are great.

    lol at how 3/s owners will pick tires based off how they "look" and then ridicule people for buying BBK's/coilovers for the same reasons.
