Wink why all the kumho and falkens

Hasn't anyone tried the Bridgestone s-03 PP, wouldn't it be better to place a far superior tire on your car and see what it can handle like, and do instead of these other tires....and although it says subie newbie.....it's only 22 years of autocrossing, and tuning auto suspensions that speaks to this.

and i think our rep from tire rack should step up and advise when newer products arrive.....day 1 of my new my02 the so3's were on it in Janurary

S-03s costs at least twice the Kumhos with probably worse treadwear. Not everybody needs tires with the highest grip. In fact, if you like to drift a little, you probably want something less aggressive. Different people drive their cars differently. Plus, some may find the sidewalls of S-02 or S-03s too stiff for their ride.

BTW, I am running S-03s now and love them.
