Falken 452 - any opinions?

Does anyone have any experience / opinions with these tires?

I'm looking for a good value ultra high performance tire.

Pricing seems good and I can source them locally (not interested in having tires shipped from the US or running across the border for tires).

Get the Vreds from Sorat tires in BC, they're 1000 a set shipped approx - and that's within Canada with GST included.

Much better than POS Falkens

Thanks for the feedback guys, you prevented me from making a bad decision!

The reviews on the internet seemed to suggest that the tires were actually OK, but I couldn't find any empirical reviews.

I'll check out Sorat in BC. Thanks for the tip!

If I were to go cheap tires I'd go Hankook V12's. 452's suck IMO.
