Kumho or Michelin

Getting new tires for autoX/street use:

The PS2s are $684 all around and the Kumho Ecsta MX are $528 all around. Are the PS2s worth the extra $150???? Keep in mind Ill probably burn them up quick from competitions. Opinions please

The PS2s are killer tires; they would definately be worthy of the additional cost in my book.

They are about the same quality. Michelin you pay a little more for the name.

I've seen Kumho on track cars like M3s and Supras and they run great!

I think the PS2's are worth the extra $$ if it's something you are willing to pay for.

The MX is a great value, but will not match the steering response, dry and wet handling of the PS2 in autocross situations.

My Pilot's are are going to be used up by the end of this Ax season, and I'm pretty set on the ps2's. I absolutely love the pilots, and the ps2 are supposedly better then them! (few $ cheaper too)
