Based on your choices you seem to be looking for an ALL-SEASON street tire.
I too have considered the three tires you have narrowed your choices down to.
the Yokohama is the only directional tire in the bunch.
I have used the Parada Spec X on another car simialar in size to the JGC and the ride was smooth and there was little tire noise..... I did not keep them long enough to rate there longevity
I have been considering the Nittos because I know a guy that has had a set on his montero from 2006 with no issues, they seem to last long and have a high load rating and they also are heavy.
The Kumhos are standard equipment on some export WK2 I have seen them on some of the Aussie WK2 and I saw a set on a forum member in Dubai the few reviews I have seen on tirerack for this tire are not good..... But for the price I may give them a shot because they are V-Rated and they are an OEM choice for the WK2 in export markets that don't have a governor on the WK2
