Hey bro,
I prefer Nitto but they are both good though..
I also reccomend pirelli....:)
Top 3 tires there is period....
Falken are just a little harder than pirreli and nitto ......That's all.

I own Pirellis, but it really depends on what kind of vehicle you are putting the tires on. Different series tires for different types of vehicles.

I have the Ziex512's....GREAT in the rain IMO, wear pretty fast, but quiet as hell!! I'm on my second summer on them and they are a good value...pretty sticky too.

I had falkens in size 215/40/17 and I didnt really like them. They wear out too fast and performance wise they were mediocre. Try some Khumho or hancook , better bang for your $$$. ALso in car and driver the Hancook outpeformed the falkens in every category and cost about $20 less.

Hated my falktons on my 02 protege5. Was like wearing a pair of ice skates in the winter and were all season ones to. Thank god It was a present. Waste of 400 bucks.

I also love my pirelli's

BFG KDW2's if you can get them in your size. If not look into Kuhmo or Nitto IMO.

ive got them on my truck had them since februarary but i dunno how the wear is on them. havent had them long enough and to be honest with you when i got hte rims i tought the guy ripped me off and gave me some cheap brand tires. i tought it was some imation tire or something but handling is pretty good better then before could be cause of rim size dunno. i wouldnt recommend them cause i havent used them long enough but so far so good.


also my stock tires where still good after 3 years of use i think they would of lasted another 3 years without a doubt dunno about these i hope they last at least 2 years

I own a 350z and other owners on 350z forums seem to like those tires. Also Nitto 555, Pirelli P Zero Rosso (I have em and love em), and BFG KDW G-Forces are all good.
