pick what you think will be best, they will never see winter and i am on a budget. I want good traction, good rain and good wear. all 7 are about 5 diff in my price each

I've had Kumho on my cars, but never those models. I've been happy with 712s that I have on my rex. 195/50-15
Nitto Neo Gen tires are nice.

I just bought Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum's, so far I'm impressed. They're 225/40R18 and they dominated the snow last night. They're $99 at Treadeapot.com and have a treadwear of 600, not to mention amazing grip for their projected lifespan.
EDIT: Just saw the part about not seeing snow, but want good wet traction. These tire have 4 DEEP water channels in them. Make sure you look at the tread, most high performance tires don't have the best wet traction because they skimp on the water channels or make them in the shape of V's (read: Kumho 712s) to get more rubber on the road. I had 712's last summer and wasn't impressed with the wet traction at all.

512's suck and wear faster than most tires

Nitto neo gens for sure. Great grip! Both ecstas ast and asx are alright 2. Never had any of the other ones but neo gens get my vote...great tire for the money

my grandpa sells tires....the falkens are alright....but the kuhmo are the best for the buck in his/my eye....the asx are cheaper then the ast....i can check...but the ast are like 180 the last time i got them for my old si blades......for 4.....195 50 15

I ran kumho escatas and they burned down very fast (but that was a mix of bad camber and heavy foot). But great ride none the less.

Have you looked into Dunlop Direzzas (around $70/tire)? I haven't had a them, but I do have all-season Dunlop P7000s on my wife's del Sol, and I like them.

Kumho or Nitto is fine.
