Default Falken 451's....Very very nice!

I just had these put on a few days ago.

They are almost identical in behavior to my SP9000's in the wet but handle a bit better in the dry. They feel like they have more grip and I haven't adjusted the tire pressure yet :O

Thanks to everyone here! I did my research and listened to those of you who track your Rex's and some of you were going to the 451's next and I am very glag I trusted you guys!

For $110 local at Just Tire they cannot be beat.

Good to see you are happy with your choice. I have Falken 451s too and am quite happy with them. They have awesome straight line grip in the wet and dry. I heard some pommy guy on Scoobynet saying they were crap but I reckon he didn't have clue what he was on about.

Yup, they are great tires. They work perfect for me as a street/auto-x tire. Anyone out there that can compare (from experience) the GRB's vs. kuhmo MX's? I wont need tires for awhile, im just curious since i've heard great things about the MX's as well.

Is that an all season tire?

Have any of you heard anything about the Falken 512? I'm looking for a rather cheap A.S.
