I used Kumho every time I had to get new tires on my Accord before I gave it to my sister. In my opinion they were great. They were quiet, they lasted (with the way I drove when I was 16-19 y/o) for about 30K miles and they gripped really well with no high pitched squeal when you push them hard, I really hate that sqreechin g noise. (I would much rather have a small rumble or low groan sound to let me know I've reached the limit).

I give them a thumbs up, maybe not the best, but they certainly treated me well and they're cheap too.

They are an all-season tire. Since your in GA you can get away with summer tires all year round.

I'm actually running the AST's at the moment since I swapped wheels with my friend for a week. Comparing them to my bald Dunlop DZ101 tires (much lower profile) they are definitel y squishier but since they actually have tread they ride well in the rain and I tested them several times by braking hard on wet surface and they're alright.
