    search up 'falken 912' in the search bar m8 i have these tyres they are actually falken ze912 and all i can say is absolute great tyre for little pennies they're about £57 off camskill then about £20 per tyre fitted from any tyre fitter near u, although i would ask them how much first. honestly good grip wet and dry so far very good tread wear and thid is from a 22yr old in a 2.2direct with a heavy right foot.

    Dear God no! Just, no.

    First off, change to 225-45-17, they're cheaper. Then go for Falkens or Vredestein. Both awesome tyres which should be about £65-70 each.

    If you want ot spend a little more, then Bridgestone RE050A or Goodyear Eagle F1-A.

    Last friday I got fitted all 4 uniroyal rainsport 2 tyres in my veccy from my local formula one garage, for £83 each including balancing and fitting. Trust me buddy go for these tyres they r number 1 at the minute, and don't forget to get 225 45 rather than 215 50.
