    I know it's asked over & over & yes I've searched & read lots of peoples thoughts but I'm a little confused. I fitted Falken 452's last time & to be honest I think they're ****e :think: The dry grip is at best ok & wet is terrible, the only good thing about them is how quiet they are in a straight line at least, any hard cornering is met with an embarrassment of squealing. Yes they are at the correct pressures. I want to be able to use it no matter what the weather, without fear of falling off the road or having to hide my shame for all the noise :redface:

    What do ya reckon???

    Another vote for Goodyear F1's. Dry grip is very good, wet is better than expected.

    The GSD3's may not last as long as other brands but considering its the only part of the car that stays in contact with the tarmac, it's worth spending the extra on them.

    F1 mark 2 best in tyre tests. Had them on a mk5GTi was so obvious straight away they were better then the Conit3s
