what do people think about this tire? i need tires for the stock 15" rim. Right now i have dunlop sp8000 tire, and there pretty much bald. i found falken ze-512 in 225/50R/15. How r these tires in rain/dry and how would they be at a dragstrip would they hook up well? I am looking to order these tires on monday so let me know what u guys think.

you can't beat the price, but personally i'd rather spend a bit more for something better...the toyo proxxes 4 is a great tire for around $100/tire....i've ran at the drag strip on both of these tires and the proxxes 4 was definitely much better....it's also a better wet/dry traction tire, but the 512 is a great daily tire for the price

They're very well priced tires, and for the price they perform well.. but hard driving and they'll show their flaws pretty quick

Straight line traction is good on them, but it's the cornering where they show their pretty low limits. Pretty confident in the wet though

I have this tire and it does an aweasome job for me in good ol seattle. It handles, rain super well and can take the occasional twisties. Did I mention they last a long time( so far 10k and the rears look aweasome) I hear its not uncommon to have to replace tires every 20k on the back with this tire, any one else care to chime in? Also the tire is fairly quiet on the freeway, i like it.

I've used them for a while now and I can get them at a decent price. Just e-mail me what size you are looking for and let's what we can do.


Peace-
