nice tires.
But kumho's don't last too long.
225 is a good width.
Other populars are yoko av's
Depends on what kind of weather conditions you live in I suppose.

I had Kumho Supra Ecsta 712's 225's on my GSX and wen't through one and a half pairs in 3 years.

they are going to be summer only tires. so they really wear fast, huh? i put on about 50 miles per day, so do you think i should consider another brand?

thanks

if they are for the summer only they should be fine.
They'll last you a few years.
Just don't wear the hell out of them and try out your 500 ft Sl. times on them with construction cones lol

Besides you can get them fairly cheap and they aren't bad tires at all. Just tend to wear a little bit faster than others.

They grip fairly well.
Again depending on road conditions but mine gripped very well.
And what do you mean by loud? Do you mean is the ride loud?
Or chirping? Burning out?
If you mean the ride, they are fairly quiet but stiff. If you mean chirping/burning out/squealing, they can get fairly loud doing any of those.

Grip tends to actually be very good with them because I'd chirp sometimes when I wasn't trying.
Just going at low accel. and low rpms, once in a while I'd shift to 2nd and I'd hear em chirp
