I had them on my Protege ES and loved them. I think they would be a nice fit for your S40. The only problem I noticed with them was that they had a bit more highway noise than the 720's (Supra's) I had on the car before this. But they were by far better than them. <BR><BR>

I was going to put them on my XC70 but Oscar pointed me to the Yoko. Avid V4S. I can't say if they are better than the Kumhos, though the TireRack owner reviews give them higher marks, but I'm happy with them. They are a bit more expensive but may also last longer.
Great ride, great grip.... A tad more noise on grooved pavement.... Great price!!!<p>They don't last quite as long as some of the competition (usually about 3/4 life of a top rated michelin), but typically they are soooo much cheaper for the same performance...<p>Especially for my V70 T5's 235/45/17's; the kumho's were $89 ea at tire rack, everything else with a decent rating was $129-$199...<p>I can highly recommend these, I use them on all of my vehicles... Prior to the ASX model, all I used was the older Kumho Supra's...
