Falken 452?

Any comments from people who have them?
They are much more reasonable in the great white north than v12 or Direzza ($700 versus $1100). But are they crap?

Yes, they are crap. No comparison to the RS3 or Dunlop.

I prefer these over the V12's. I have one set of each on my current cars... the 452's have more miles and are quieter.

452's are a great tire for the money, I have ran them for awhile now.
I started off with the 451's and moved to the 452's once they came out.
I have ran Bridgestones and the big name tires but unless you just like to throw money away, the Falkens will do just fine.
If you're going to track the car, then do the smart thing and buy yourself a track set up with wheels and tires.
I can't wait to put my e90 on Falkens and get rid of these stupid RFT's!!!

the price you cant go wrong on 1010tires there plenty have great reviews obviously there arent better tires but for how these tires perform its pretty much spot on more money you can get verdestien ultrasac if you wanna drop a bit of dough or pss2 if your looking for even more conservative then the 452's achilles atr sport are pretty decent as well cannot complain whatsoever for the price that your paying
