Both are good tires- you cant go wrong with either one. In terms of price and performance, I would have to go with the Generals.

I love it. But I love the BMW even more. I've always had Bmw's in the past, and i told myself I'd never buy anything else, but I did. Then I drove my cousins brand new e92 335i, and I put my Jeep up for sale the next day.

I have generals right now on my 19"s. They are great for the money, but I have noticed a prolonged braking period and less stability on freeway speeds. For those who are very concerned with safety will probably need to take notice on the lack of performance in these areas. For my next set I would want to try out the Falken FK452s.

Generals because of the slight price advantage but not a wrong choice either way.
