    Default Falken Tyres are they any good ?

    I know they are a budget brand but anyone got any experience with them ?

    215 55 16 are £48 each fitted, Chapest branded ones Avon ZZ3 £94 each fitted so half the price & moneys tight

    I wouldn't call them budget, more mid-range.

    I have a pair of 452's on the rear and find them much better than the NCT5's they replaced.

    For me, for 225x45x17 they're just under the £80 mark a corner. A fiver cheaper than Goodyear F1's, Vredestein Ultracs, etc., so again, hardly budget or cheap.

    Out of interest, what's your tyre place's definition of cheap?

    I dunno what there definition of cheap is , but they are cheap compared to the other prices he was reeling off , Kumbo £65, Avon £90, Mitchellin £90 etc, and he said they were in the budget bracket they sell, i dunno where they fall in the market place just going from what he said.

    I would say they are a good balance between price & performance. I have 2 on the front and I think I will definitely buy these again.

    If you can get the 452's in the size I mentioned for less than £65 then rip his arm off & get me two, too!

    Yes, http://www.falkentyres.co.uk/tyrepatterns.asp. The 512 is no longer available and has been replaced by the 912. IIRC, several members have the 912's fitted are well pleased. HTH
