I'm guessing you are looking for an all-season tire? If not, look at the General Grabber UHP (more of a street performance tire, but I notice you are in PA so that might not work out so well in the winter).

If you are looking for all-season I'd go with the General that you picked out. It has better ratings in every category on tirerack, plus it has a better treadwear rating, and they are 3 pounds lighter than the Kuhmo. Plus the General comes with 12/32" tread and the Kuhmo comes with 11/32".

Yeah it doesn't have bad ratings, but the ratings are better for the General. However looking at the price I don't know if they are really worth the extra $20 or so a tire.

Plus the General's are on backorder.

I am going to replace mine with either the Michelin LTX-MS or Michelin LTX-AT2.

I am going to replace mine with Michelin ltx-ms or Michelin ltx-at2. Just not sure which one I want.

Revos are a popular choice. I have them.

I love my General Grabber AT2 tires. Might be too agressive for you if you don't go off road at all. They work great on the street too though.

That is what I am planning to get next, and in 255/65/17 as well. I was trying to decided between that and the Yoko Geolander A/T-S but the General got better reviews and has better specs, plus the treadwear is way better (640 vs 500)

Tirerack has had them on backorder for quite a while now, but I've found a couple other sites that have them. Best I can find is $725 shipped for 5 of them.

I am hoping to get the Bridgestone Dueller Revo 2 in a 255/55/18 for my WK.
