Just had a pair of these fitted (235/45r17 size) Recommend by my tyre supplier when I asked for another pair of Eagle F1s. They know more about tyres than me so I thought I’d give them a try. So far they feel as good as the Eagles, but I haven’t done much mileage yet.

I got a pair of these on the front a couple of weeks ago after being recommended them. I usually go to the same place and the guy I spoke with told me that a lot of the guys with Golf Rs have been fitting them.

We haven't had the weather to see what they are like for grip but they were decent enough in the snow. I was £100 a tyre for 19"s

Tyres are a midfield. Since buying my roc about a month ago the road noise it's really noticeable. All wheels have Bridgestones. So looking at replacing the two most worn ones. So I would like to know how quiet these falkens are. £200 It's an expensive punt otherwise.

I didn't notice any difference from the Pirellis that were on before though it's not exactly a quiet car so there may or may not have been a difference.

Grip is excellent though

Just got some rainsports fitted

Yeah I know its summer-ish but it will only last 2 weeks

Rainsports are a vey good road tyre and brilliant in the wet.
