Thats funny, I have the Falken tires on them (came with the car), and I actually like them. Very quiet, and they do grip well. I didn't think they were all that great of a brand, but I like them.Batou said:myself, i prefer the Falken Azenis... grippy as hell, but they wear out rather quickly. i had potenza's on before them.
I got the same Falken Ziex. They seem to be pretty good tyres from my experience no awful tyre noises, good grip, and good treadwear. Yeah the price is good was AU$1000 for the 4 of them (not bad price for 18's)NüR-SPEC said:i use Falken Ziex. almost as fun as Azenis, but better treadwear for street use. and they are priced as if they're giving them away..
I've also been running these Kuhmo's on my 300sd in a 225/50/16. Had them going for 35,000 miles and they were a pretty good tire for being so inexpensive. Also, no problems with breaking them loose here They had pretty good grip in the turn and fairly quiet when new. They are just about shot and I'm debating buyng another set. Pause...I just looked and they're $57 each along with a $10 rebate at Tirerack. Dang, might just do that tonight when I get to the hotel. Anyone tried out the Ecsta ASX's up their line?allnpt0 said:I run Kuhmo 234/45/17 ECSTA AST. Had them for about a month. Paid $280 for the set. They're pretty quite and have good all-weather traction, although I don't have enough power to worry about traction having a 380SEC.
I have those in 19" on my A6 and they are great! Really surprised at the performance for the price - certainly the cheapest nineteen-inchers I could find. Just lowly old Michelin MXV on the 300SE, also with no complaints, but it hardly demands much.allnpt0 said:I run Kuhmo 234/45/17 ECSTA AST.
