Ok, I've read and re read about the DARKSIDE and I'm ready to order the Kumho but when I tried to order from Tirerack they want to know what vehicle it's going on and if you don't tell them they say a rep will call to check.

Does anyone know what vehicle this will fit on? I like to know the answers before the questions are asked. ;)

Thanks for ALL the help and info from everyone here. It's a big decision and I'm one that wanted to know good and bad before hand. About all I can see is that there is a little handling difference on uneven surfaces. I guess I'll have be ready for it. Nothing like first hand experience.

Again, THANKS to all for everything!

I just order one from these guy's, they didn't ask anything.
http://www.directbuytire.com/
Good prices on the tire, shipping was a little high IMHO.
Every tire store I tried locally didn't have any in stock, and the prices they quoted me were higher than the tire and shipping from these guy's

There was a box at the end of the check out saying I dont want to say which kind of vehicle it is for.

I have never been asked what it's for or why am I only ordering one tire from easytire.com!

I ordered my Kumho RF from Discount Tire in Longmont, Colorado. No questions asked. Then when I wanted the Falken ZE-912, they ordered it and even installed it for me. The only thing they could not do was balance because the spindle on the standard Tire Balancer is larger then the hole in the Goldwing wheel.
