    neither.

    Kumho KU31's or Marshal KH35's (same rubber, different tread patterns)
    I'd imagine in XL for these types of car too

    i don't think falkens are too bad. i had the fk451s and ze512s on my old rs2000 and that used to get some serious stick - and i mean serious. i prefered the fks and the 452s are supposed to be better than the 451 so that's where my vote goes. amazing in the dry and not bad in the wet considering the abuse they got.

    452s fitted to mine and I have covered atleast 10k in them and still have enough tread to last me til the end of summer! And they do stick really well...

    Downsides is they are firm and loud... but like I said... the Handling is brilliant!

    You never told me that when you sold yours to me!

    However, I find them fine. 452's and no issues, done 1k on them so far in the wet and dry.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Got the Falken 452's on mine also and seem to have worn well having done about 11,000 miles on them, it also helps to ensure you have them balanced properly and 4-wheel alignment done and maybe the front camber made slightly more positve so as to reduce typical inside wear.
    Cheers Pete

    Thanks all for the replies

    I'll need my tracking doing also, gonna go for all wheel tracking. (I didn't know about 4 wheel tracking vs 2 wheel tracking until i read on here)

    Looking like it's gonna be the 452's so far based on the vote
