Hankook, Toyo, or Falken?

Which tires from these 3 do you guys think are the best. I am leaning towards the T1R. But any reviews about the V12 or 452 are much appreciated. Thanks.

265/30/19 tire.

Hankook..$242
Falken... $200
Toyo... $331
Michelin..$360

I was going high with the Toyos. To me I just don't want to spend that much. Call me cheap or whatever but this car is just my DD. Just need some good tires.

V12's are our best sellers with the tire packages we sell.

Most of our customers tell us they like the ride comfort with the V12 better than the FK452 and the performance of the tire as well. For the price, the V12's are worth it.

If you can afford to spend a little extra and jump over everything else, go for the PSS lol.

For a good bang for the buck, Hankook Ventus V12s are a winner in my eyes. It's hands down one of the most, if not the most, popular tire we sell with our wheels. Really good value for money there.

I knew people would post about PSS's even though it was not part of my question, but it doesn't bother me. And yes, after purchasing my Advans, I am on a budget, haha.

Had Hankooks V12's on my e90. Was Very happy with them and would buy them again for my next car. Michelin performance for a very low price.

those saying they blow, have you had experience with them outside of reading the interwebz? if not...

Thanks everyone. I've heard good and bad things about hankook. But I'm not one of those people who complain about any little thing of a product. Might get those then!

Best for what? The V12's I had suck im comparison to the Goodyear F1's I just put on. If your car ever sees a track for God's sake do not put Hankooks on.

You have to be certifiably nuts to pay for Hankooks when you can have Nitto NT 555's for the same price. Absolute no brainer in my opinion.

I would go with NT05s if you are thinking to spend a set for $600~700. Check them out on Onlintires.com. They have a good price for Nitto

lol seriously. v12's were the intarwebz fanboy tire for a while when they first came out, now its the PSS



v12's will be fine for a daily driver tire and do great in the rain. the sidewall is a little softer and they ride well. theyre definitely not a track tire but youd have fun on a curvy road and save some money if that's what you want.

they didnt come close to my goodyears or even my vredesteins but shit, theyre a great tire to get you to the office and the grocery store.
