Thought some folks might be interested in a review I recently wrote on my blog on the new Falken tires. Other than a back to back comparison between other brands (outside of my pocket book at this time) feedback welcome.
I read your review with great interest, as I picked up a set of these for my Miata a few months ago when they were doing that promo deal and they worked out to a bit over $100 a corner. Did not need tires yet, so they went into plastic bags in the closet of the guest bedroom. Just mounted them and will be doing my first auto cross on them next weekend at Thunderhill with Sacramento SCCA. This is my first foray into the world of 200tw tires, have had some 280tw Kumhos on it. I can already tell this is a pretty big step up. I have not pushed them at all, but accelerating hard from a stop, they just grab and go. They also have a significantly stiffer sidewall than I am used to, not a bad thing. I look forward most expectaciously to July 22+23 ;D
