opinions on tires...?

i have a choice to get either:

BFG gforce KDW NT
BFG gforce KDW-2
Kuhmo Ecsta MX

wet traction is not really an issue...its not my daily driver. car is about 380HP.....most interested in dry traction and longevity. not a quarter mile car either.

any experience/feedback with any of these?
thanks

Drop the "W" and go with BFG gforce T/A KD. Really an excellent good weather tire. They say it's pretty good in the rain, but don't buy the hype. The D is for dry, the W is for wet, and the S is for snow. If you only drive the car in nice weather, I'd go with the KD's....you won't be disappointed.
