The original Nexen CP662 were surprisingly good for OEM tires, but these Kumhos are awesome. They're categorized as Ultra High Performance All Season, and they're all of that, yet they don't look like anything special. Under aggressive acceleration, wet or dry, the tires spin no more than half a revolution, then ferociously bite the pavement. The car seemingly rides on rails and the understeer threshold is much higher and more predictable. At under $90 each, they're an incredible bargain.
