tire choice ?

Well it seems I am going to be ordering a new set of Centerline 22 x 9's and the 305/45/22 tires are popping up several brands I have never used before. Any pros or cons for KUMHO, or SUMITOMO? I appreciate any help on this issue.

Being in Germany and buying tires and wheels is tough, absolutely nothing available here for these sizes. So the go touch and see method is not possible here.

i had a set of kumhos on my trans am and they were very good for traction but they didnt last to long. In my opinion for the price theyre a pretty good tire.

the rims are also reverse which means they mount the tires from the back side. they put the wheel face down and the alloy can be damage this way if not careful.

I went another way, I opted for the Goodyear Fortesa in 305/45/22. $5 more per tire but with 50,000 mile tread ware. 22" centerline chrome alloys. I look forward to getting them here, they are in the states and coming here but mail across the boat is not fast.
