Falken fk 452 vs. nitto 555

I'm buying new tires soon, and I'm trying to decide between the two. Does anyone have any experience with the 452?

I just got a set put on last week. 255/35/20. Even though they are kind of skinny they grip pretty well and corner superb. Pretty smooth as well

Thank you for the feedback guys, after a lot of research, I'm going to go with the Falkens. I will let you know what I think of them once I get them installed.

I just ordered 4 Falken FK 452's in 245/45/17 for $528 shipped with valve stems from discount tire direct. I can't wait till they arrive! I'll post my review when I get a chance to test them.

Glad to hear that. I have searched everywhere for a comparison between the original Goodyear Eagle ZR45's vs. the Falken fk 452 with no luck. Since my tires are the originals from 2001, I'm sure it will be a night and day difference.

Just put on Nitto 555's. 255/45/18. So far I really like them but only a week old. They're a little wider than my stock 235/50/18. They launch better and to stick better than the previous pirelli's.

Nice, if I don't like the Falkens, I will get Nittos next. What Pirelli's did you have?
