The Falkens are deffo tremendous value for money (depending on what you're paying). I use my local Kumho centre and order online with them. They are in next day and balance and fit are currently £162 each for 295/30 18. Everything else they do comes in around the £240 mark. I can't justify spending 50% more for something that isn't 50% better. Dont know

how's the sidewall stiffness on those?


Falken tyres have a stiffish side wall. It gives them quite a precise Steering feel if fitted to the front axle of most vehicles.

Damn prices on tyre leader have jumped up from a low of £155 to £175 as soon as I wanted to buy them!

I have 4 fitted to my 1998 C2, decent handling. Not sure about wear as they've only done 1000 miles since I fitted them but quiet enough and not had any issues. Cost me £380 all in for 4

Try your local Kumho centre online. Price including fitting is only around £160 each.

Been reading about these Falkens as the Michelin’s on my C2 are getting low and strangely a bit perished.

The tyres I need are Front 225/40ZR18 88Y N3 Rear 285/30ZR18 N3 Michelin Sport. I won’t be tracking these tyres but just want something reliable and fairly grippy in all weathers.

So is it worth saving the money and possibly getting Falkens all round or just sticking with a front set of Michelins?
