Default Need some help with tires

Hey guys. Im lookin for some tires. Heres the predicament im in: Parents dont want me burning through tires really frequently. I drive mountain roads once a weekend fairly hard, im on Kumho ASX and they havent lasted worth crap. Im getting an alignment done with some negative camber to help during cornering. I was looking @ getting a new tire (im probably going to have to pay for it). I have a good amount of money i could drop, but im trying to save as hard as i can to get a miata in a year or so. I dont want to spent a LOT.

So, i need something thats going to last a fair while with some abuse in corners and around town. I was looking into the Azenis 615 in 205/40/16. Or maybe Kumho MX, but i need some decent mileage outta these things. What can you guys recomend that has a good grip that will last a fair amount and isnt rediculously expensive. Please help! :mecry:

I dont trust the reviews on tire rack because i dont know the people and i dunno how they drive etc. I need some feed back from enthusiasts...not some guy with a saturn or something like that.
