Default Where to buy Kumho Ecsta MX?

Debating whether to pick up a set of Azenis Sports for 110 a tire, or spending the extra money for the Kumho Ecsta MX. The Azenis are discontinued and I heard they don't last very long.

Tire rack is the cheapest I have found the MX.

225/45/17

Anyone know of a better place?

Discount Tire in SLC has always matched Tire Rack's prices for me (before shipping). Check with them in your area - this would save you the Tire Rack shipping costs.

I have Kumho Ecsta MX on my 911 (225-45-17, 255-40-17). They are fairly sticky but have a softer sidewall than the stock STi tires.

I've heard very good things about the Falken Azenis RT-615.

Online they do not list any azenis models, but maybe I'll stop in and check.

They match and give you 10% of the difference.

That's pretty good.

I just bought the Hankook Z212's in 235/40-17 from discount tire direct for $416 SHIPPED......they have continued their FREE SHIPPING....and if you are not in one of their wharehouse states...NO TAX either.

I would NOT do the Falken 'Azenis'(they are actually the RT-215's) in a rainy, wet place....the Hankooks are new, and may be a better all around street tire....wet and dry.
I have the RT-215's now and can't wait to get them off my car...really.
