    Australian Muscle Car ... "It is a sensational high performance vehicle; a beautifully engineered and immensely capable four door Grand Tourer or 'GT' in the truest sense of that tradition."

    No prize for guessing what car they were referring to ... OWN THE ROAD ...

    Havent tried them, had them "recommended" to me as an alternative to the Nexen 5000's, not sure what they're like @ $145 a corner.

    Sure the austyres would do the job - but when push comes to shove I'd love to see a braking distance comparo of the many budget brands.
    For a tight budget and daily as I said I'm sure they are fine but my above comment is for when required in a emergency stop rain or dry how do they really perform ? but not ask yourself with you at the wheel but your wife/girlfriend/partner and any other name used nowadays LOL.......

    Seriously can't help it but for my wife not a friggin chance will I compramise on her SUV - she just points and drives, she claims she's a good driver and yes I'll give her credit not having a bingle in the 22yrs we have been together but she wouldn't have the instintive reflex or nouse of releasing pedal pressure etc when wheel lock occurs etcetc.....having had a couple of sets of differing chinese budget tyres in the wet importantly they were absolutely shyte, I know I can adjust my driving style to counter but even thinking of another average joe driver heading towards her losing control due to cheap shod rubber freaks me.

    I have the Falken FK452 made in Japan on the F6, and the Bridgestone Adrenalin RE002 on the TS. Not sure where they are made, im guessing they would be Japan as they are only 6 months old.
