  • Summary: Never gonna buy any other brand tire again falken makes every size anybody would ever need and these tires are excellent worth the money which isn't bad either for the amount of tread wear for the miles put on them plus the awesome grip and response you receive.

  • Summary: I have had two flat tires with these Falken's. I haven't ever had an issue with any other manufacturer ever. Includes Pirelli, Sumitomo, Bridgestone, and Continental. Great traction but having to buy 6 tires is not worth it. I'll never buy Falken's again after my experience.

  • Summary: Bought these tyres after reading a review in a BMW magazine as a cheap alternative to the more expensive top brands and have not been disappointed. Dry grip is great and I can't fault Wet grip either. I have done around 15000 miles over 5 years on these tyres and all four tyres have over 3.5mm left on them. I have not driven the car on any other tyre so not sure on how they compare to the top brands.

  • Summary: Mine are actually 452s as tested over 7K miles and highly recommended on this site as an excellent performing budget high performance tyre with a good wear rate. I have found that these tyres, recently purchased and made by a japanese company, are subjectively as good as the Pirelli P6000s they replaced in all aspects. In addition, they are actually noticeably much smoother and quieter on the motorway - on my car at least - which is a most welcome improvement.

  • Summary: I've bought brand new tyres about 10 000 km (~ 6250 miles)ago. These tyres are very good for my crazy driving style (grip on the dry or wet road)and they do fit to my car (BMW 330xd - 4 wheel drive). It's already 10 000 km, but they do look like the brand new. Very good tyres for the very reasonable price (price and quality). I've used Pirelli PZero before, but i did not get such good results (compare price and quality).

  • Summary: I have bought these to replace Michelin pilots that were three times the price! I can't tell any difference in performance from them - they even look the same as the michelins. Even with a V8 under the bonnet and two tons of load from a W140 S-Class, I cannot fault them and will be buying more next time around

  • Summary: Dry grip is very impressive for what is supposed to be a 'budget' tyre. Good feedback, and very nicely progressive on the limit. Even in the MR2 with 325bhp, the car is very controllable at the limit, as experienced on a couple of track days. In the wet again, the tyre performs extremely well, giving far better grip than the ZZ3's they replaced - they move water very well, and I've never had any unexpected breakaway in the wet, even driving relatively quickly.

  • Summary: Fantastic tyres, had these front and rear and was very impressed with them considering they are supposed to be a buget performance tyre, good all round, lots of grip in the twisty bits, shoulder profile is also kind to the wheel arches of those with lowered cars! would definately recomend these and happy to use them again!
