  1. Replacing 20” Dunlop Sport Maxx with Falken FK510

    Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    I’ve replaced too many of the (very) expensive Dunlop Sport Maxx GT runflats on my F10 5 series. Had 3 sidewall bulges in 2 years and I avoid as many potholes as I can! Approximately £1k a set at 245/35/20 and 275/30/20. Thinking of a) ditching the run flats and b) thinking about the Falken...
  2. Falken tyres

    General BMW Discussions
    Can anyone recommend these tyres? For my 335d xdrive, I have Bridgestones at present but need replacement soon, I’m not keen on Bridgestone tyres they seem to wear on the sides! Had the same problem on my 120d Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Replacement RFTs - Falken Azenis FK453 RFT

    Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    Need to replace the rear two run flats on my 320d M Sport, and wandered if anybody could recommend any decent but fairly cheap (although run flats never are) replacements. Size is 255/40/18. I know that some of you will say ditch them altogether, but that would mean replacing all 4 and the...

    Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    Hi, I've had my trusty E46 for nearly 4 years now and have always used FK453s other than when an emergency (tyre blow out etc) has meant putting on what I can afford from Kwik Fit. I tend to order from and have been pleased with their service, getting them fitted by my the local...

    Hi all. I am looking for some tyre advice please. I have an E46 2002 320i SE with the standard 16" wheels and tyre size 205/55/R16. The last 8 tyres I have bought have been Falken 452s after reading lots of good reviews on this site. After the 4 wheel alignment these tyres have been great...
  8. Falken FK453 Just fitted

    BFuk Open Topic
    Just had a set of FK453's fitted. Only done a few hundred miles so far. Seem ok but need wearing in a bit more. Grip during acceleration and breaking seems very good! not really tested cornering yet. I know they are the replacement for the FK452 but the tread is very different. Anyone else...

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    After much reading on this forum I decided to replace my Bridgestone Potenza with Falkens. I did this on my previous BMW with Falken 452s and was very happy with the results. My Bridgestones still have 4.5mm on, but they are losing grip in the wet cold conditions and I have been caught out a...
  10. 2008 1 Series coupe with Falken 452s instead of run-flats

    Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    Following advice from this forum I changed the worn out RFTs to a set of Falken 452s about 7 months/10,000 miles ago. Just suffered a puncture and discovered to my horror that the rears were almost down to the wear bars. Both sides the same, and the fronts showing about 3mm left with the outer...

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Sorry, I just feel a need for some confirmation of my thinkng. I currently have Bridgestone Potenza RE050A Run Flats: 225/35/19R Fronts, and 255/30/19R Rears. Yes the ride is hard and noisy, but they lasted much, much longer than I was lead to believe - currently on 27k. A new set seems to...

    Hi all, I am looking to replace all tyres this weekend and am struggling to choose between Hankook Ventus V12 Evo K110 or Falken FK-452. Some of the reviews for the Falkens are disappointing but the Hankook, never heard of them but I'm no tyre expert, get great reviews. What are peoples take...

    Went to my local Tyre shop today who are pretty good but I have been quoted £142 for a 265/30/19 Falken, I know they aint that cheap but does anyone know anywhere where I could potentially get them cheaper? He did say that these would be ordered in from Falken and that Falken themselves only...
  17. 2003 E46 318 Falken HS-439 winter tyres, Any Good??

    Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    Have been looking around the net at various winter tyre options. Have almost settled on the Vredstein Snowtrac 3, but to be honest they are at the top of my budget. I have found them online for £89 and adding a tenner a tyre for fitting/balancing at a local tyre place, works out at £99 a tyre...

    Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    Hi Folks, Was looking to replace all 4 tyres and have found 4 Falken 452's (2x225/40/18, 2x255/35/18) for £360, which looks like a steal to me. The only thing I worried about is that I've always seen Falken as a Budget (and I mean lower end budget) tyre, so I'm not sure if it's a false...
