I was wondering if anyone has these tires and how they like them as opposed to Michelin PS2's? I can get a set of them for $640 for the front and rears. 245/35/19 in the fronts and 275/3019 for the rears.

I dunno, but I read somewhere on this forum that someone has a set and they stick like glue. Also, they have a 300 treadwear rating. ALSO, a buddy of mine had them on his 645 and they lasted 3 years.....

I have never used them personally, but many of my friends have and they all swear by them. Handle great, and have a great treadwear rating.

They also have a tapered shoulder, so these are very good for aggressive fitment wheel set-ups to help minimize rubbing.

They're comparable to the hankook ventus v12 evo. I think the evo is a slightly better tire than the falken in terms of ride and noise comfort, actually. The PS2's do have better steering response and grip than both. The falkens are a good budget choice.

I ran those tires on my last car and they are definitely a great value.

I even tracked them so I know their handling limits. I would say they are on-par (or a little less) than the Goodyear F1s Assymetrics that I also tracked. Again, these are both below PS2 in terms of grip and quietness/comfort. But considering it's 40% less in price, they are amazing, because they are still a good performance tire.
