As per title really.

 

Looking at these - http://www.camskill.co.uk/products.php?plid=m54b0s312p12925 - as a mid-range option for the front of my E36 since I don't really want to pay 105 per side to have Pirellis on the front too (I don't overly like Pirellis anyway).

 

I know older mould Falkens were garbage, but this tyre seems to have good reviews and gets high mark on road tests in wet and dry grip.

 

Just wondered if you lot had experience of this specific mould, or if there were any current tyre fitters who know what the word on the street is with regards to them.

im currently in the tyre biz :( but yes they are a good tyre for there money, i run them on my escort and they are a good all rounder, also i put them on the misses tt and they seem okay, other than they wear quickly on that. if you want a great mid range tyre i recommend kumho's

 

also to save even more money there is an admiral tyre out at the moment that is from a kumho moulding, cant remember the exact tyre right no, id have to check at work monday

I heard that Kuhmo's go hard after a few thousand miles and by about 4mm left they are as good as useless? Have you heard of this?

 

As long as there are no horror stories about them then I'll probably get them next week (Like I said, the online reviews are pretty much that they're really good for the price, and pretty decent in general). If they wear quickly then maybe the fronts and backs will go about the same time and I'll get a set of matched Conti's or vredestein's all round :)

 

Hopefully they only wear so quickly on the TT as they're driven (if it's a quattro).

not heard of kumho's doing that, there are poor kumho's and good ones, (cant remember which is which atm, guy at work would know)

 

The TT wore the rear falkens out to the threads in less than 10k but yes it is a quattro
