If you mean the FK-451, then they are a far better UHP 'summer' tire than any of the others you listed....they are NOT an AS or snow tire, so don't try to use them in the winter.

If you are looking for an AS(all season) HP tire, then the Toyo Proxes4 or the Pirelli PzeroNero M&S are two very good choices.

spend more money on tires and less on other things, they are what keep your car on the road, help it go, turn, and stop better. Granted you can over pay for tires that don't offer that much more, but don't cheap out on tires, if you're going to do that, just run on the stock RE92's and keep buying them used cheap as people unload them here on NASIOC.

The Ziex 512 are good tires. The best prices can be found on edgeracing.com.

There would be no need for the AS Ziex 512 in Florida. Go with the FK451's.

My next set of tires will be the FK-451's unless something comes along that I just can't pass up on trying, or for whatever reason I can not get them....I'm real ready to junk my 'Azenis'....

Do you really feel that the 451's will provide that much more grip? What about the new Azenis ST 615? And I thought you were a die hard Kuhmo MX fan???

Mx's if you don't need as much wet performance or want/need a light(er) tire.....451's if you need more wet capability....
They are BOTH excellent tires dry, no doubt, with differences that may make one a better choice over the other depending on the conditions that the vehicle will be used in.
I believe that in Florida that the 451 may be a better choice of tire, over the MX, due to the ammount of thunderstorms and rain we get.

The ST 615 is a new and unknown item.....the MX and the FK-451 are known items.
