Well the Kumho 712s are nice but they won't last very long, they're quite noisy at highway speeds and they're just decent in the wet.
They are what I run in auto-x.
Can't help with the rest as far as real world experiences.

i have read in one web that the falken are for summer too...
At 1010tires Falken Ziex ZE-512 tires carry the all-season symbol
meaning you can use them in the dry, wet and [to some extent] snow.

You'll find customer ratings on the Falken, Hankook and Kumho tires you listed at 1010tires ... check them out.

Since you want tires that "make a lot of miles", here's the wear ratings:
  • 420 for Falken Ziex ZE-512
  • 360 for Kumho ECSTA 712 Supra
  • 340 for Nankang NS-2
  • 280 for Hankook Ventus Sport K104
  • ??? for Avon ZZ3
As I said previously, the Falkens will most likely last the longest.
