Kumho Ecsta STX vs Toyo Proxes ST ii vs BFG T/A KDW

I am needed new summer tires this spring and I have narrowed it down to the following.

Kumho Ecsta STX
Toyo Proxes ST ii
BFG T/A KDW

Do any of you guys have any experience with these tires good or bad that you can share to help me make my decision? I have been reading lots of reviews and some say lots of noise and crappy handling for all those tires and some say the opposite. They are for a 2012 SRT Grand Cherokee.

I know the BFG will be a very good tire but I am worried about the road noise. I heard the Kumho's aren't that greatest at handling. Not to worried about the price, just looking for a good handling, low noise tire.

Thanks

Look into the Hankook Ventus ST RH07!!!! Excellent tire aggressive thread and great reviews. I've had them on both my 12&14 JGC 295/45/20

And now - a year later - do you still recommend them?!

Good question. I just bought 4 after great reviews wondering what noise and treadware are like 12 months out.

Absolutely!!!! 22k on them and at about half thread. No noise, excellent ride. It's rated M+S but it's mostly for summer but it did ok this past winter in 3-4 inches of snow.

Thanks Trelos. Great to hear feedback after 12 months. So many people only post after a couple of weeks so it helped.

I actually just bought 4 x Proxes and cancelled my Hankook RH06 order. I hope it works out.

Re: Kumho Ecsta STX vs Toyo Proxes ST ii vs BFG T/A KDW

I had the Hankooks only for 2 weeks because they had a vibration @ 60MPH
Had them road force balance and still had the same issue so I swapped to Yokohama Parada Spec-X and they've been great so far in wet and dry conditions. Very quiet tire.
