    Default Nankang Ns-2 (£57) Or Falken Ze912 (£67)?

    Which would u go for or can any1 suggest a better quality for a similar price? With Christmas around the corner and me and the misses going on hols the end of the month, I simply cant afford a top brand. I deperatly need 2 NEW ones on the back and soon 2 on the front, so I thought id get them all done together! Iv currently got DURUN - SPORT ONE 225/40/18 ZR 92 W XL on my 18" BK999's that came with the wheels and iv done 15/16k on them since November last year!

    Good god! STEP AWAY FROM THE NANKANGS!!

    Falkens are getting a lot of very good reviews recently. The 452 are their flagship tyre, but the 912 are a new assymetrical style and look to be a very good addition to the range.

    I'd definitely go with the Falkens

    Yep ahve to agree with parapaul, only read good things about the Falkens and the words "Nankang Ditch finders" about the others

    I have nankangs on mine 18" and i find them ok tbh. Had them on the car for a year now and the grip in the dry and wet even at some speed has been good. Wearing quite well too.

    I got them as i was skint at the time. If i was buying budget again i would definately consider them.

    Ive had both. i had the falkens previous and thought they were an excellent tyre but i am biased as ive always had falkens. ive got Nankangs on at the moment. I have to say they are a good tyre and ive had no problems, grip well and wear well but overall falkens provide that little bit more grip and are better in the wet. Go with the falkens

    I'd drive on the bare brake discs before using Nankacks.
