I run 245/40 KD's on 8.5" FM5's at all four corners.....the finest dry handling street tire I've ever shod a car with....last season I held the FTY for street tires at the local BMW Chapter 8 event auto X series.....I picked up about .75-1.0 seconds vs the Pilots(75+ sec course BTW)......
Now run on the Kumho's and the KD's are for the street only. The KD has superb turn in response and communicates great near the limit of adhesion.....quite a few club racers use these as their rain tires....

Good luck!
