Hankook K104

Im going to have to change my rear tires pretty soon (I bought my car at an auction and usually before hand the people that work there really lay into the cars).

I would love to spring for another set of PS2s, but do to a complicated situation I will most likely end up with having Hankook K104 mounted on the back. Im not fond of leaving the PS2s and don't like the idea of having 2 different types of tires on the car. But I was wondering if anyone has any experience with them.

I don't know when I will change the tires, but I will do my best to get another set of PS2s. Im just curious as to whats on the other side of the fence...

Isn't it o.k. to mix and match front & rears as long as the front/rear sets are the same?

Dude just drop on some Falken Azeni RT-615s and put them on the front as well.

Generally not recommended. Of course, this all depends how hard you drive the car. However, I would be semi open minded to running PS2s on the front and say, ContiSport 3s on the rear. Something like a Hankook I don't know about. There is probably a very significant different between those and the PS2s.
