New Tires?

As I've stated before... the car can really handle.  Well, the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport tires that came with the HFP wheels wear quick on this little car.   I typically rotate my tires about every 4000-6000 miles.  However, it looks like I'm going to need to do it about every 2000-3000 miles!

I have not yet rotated the tires, and a good look at the front tires showed almost no tread pattern (other then the primary pattern) left.  The back tires still look quite fresh... so I ordered some new Kuhmo Ecsta ASX's for the front (same tires I've used on other vehicles with good results).

So... with 6620 miles, I have new front tires already.  The Kuhmo's have a 420AA rating, which is a bit better then the 340AA of the Potenza's.  I'll rotate more often from now on... and we'll see how well the Kuhmo's wear.
