Anybody tried or have FALKEN ZE 912 in 18s? Uncle Bob has them for $234 ea. at the moment.
Yeah mate. I paid about that for mine.
Very quiet tyre. Done about 5000km on them with no issues.
Can't really comment on wet performance, as I don't punish my car, but I haven't lost traction with them yet.
Edit: They are 245/45/18
Thanks Wongy. They are for a VE with 18s on it from the factory, and size you mention is correct for mine.
Will keep these in mind when I'm ready to go.
Bridgestone Turanza are a good tyre though bit pricey for an 18in -20in wheel.. I got 120,000kms out of a set on 17in back when i had my vr commodore. Atm im running Kumoh's 18in and they seen to be wearing ok so far only done 20,000kms on them
Anyone running federal 595s? Or had experience with them?
No no, stay away very far away.
I agree about the bloody things tram tracking, they're hopeless!!!
I drive my SSV on dirt and stuff as well and think the Bridgestones that come with the car dont do so well, quite floaty.....
On the plus side I've got just on 48,000km out of them but theyre pretty well on the wear limit now.
U had bad experience with them?
Another vote for Maxxis here, great value for money.
What Kumho though?
Had them, lasted just under 8000km, let loose in the dry at 90km on a stock 5.7L.
Traction is shocking in these tyres, drive like a pussy in the wet. Waste of $125 a corner. There's better options out there if your that cheap.
Ahh fair enuf will syewr clear then anyone got dunlop sp sports?
The Dunlop's get a lot of mixed reviews, that's why i avoided them.
Dunlop too over priced for what they claim they be.
Couldnt be bothering reading the thread but id be lookin at Eagle F1s or my personal Favourite Mich PS3s
Im running Kumho Ecsta ASX 245/45R18
What do you all think is the best deal on these 245/45/18's in regards to value/performance
Falken 452 - $190
Falken 722 - $229
Falken 912 - $209
Dunlop sport maxx - $210
pirelli P7 - $255
There are other options but the 250 mark is all I think I will spend this time. The B/stones I put on only lasted 30000 and can't justify that spend again.
