    Anyone know anything about Falken 453's? Had 452's on previous cars and been quite happy with them

    Reviews on the falken 453s , not as good as the 452s.
    Great performance tyre in the dry, but let down in the wet. Iv had them 2 years now and done 2 trackdays, still fine.

    Maxxis MA-Z1 - good budget performer.

    Usually go for Toyo T1R's, now I have 19" wheels they are a tad on the expensive side, hence going for Maxxis - been very impressed.

    The car had Fullrun tyres on when I purchased it - the inner sidewalls cracked and started letting air out! Shocking.

    Good Year Eagle F1s, excellent, next were Bridgestone Potenza RE050s, again excellent with great wet and dry grip, then moved onto the Continental Conti Sport 3s, along the same lines as the others and now, just got some Firestone SZ90s, have to say im very impressed with them so far, in fact as much as the others ive named.

    Just read a few reviews on the Falken ZE914's and they dont seem too bad for the money!
