Falken 912 Tyres

Recently had a set of 912's fitted to the scoob,what can i say about them,apart from

mrs had them on her Civic,she loves 'em and for a woman to notice tyres,they have got to be good !!..

went out for a blast on Friday afternoon,thought i'd give them a test in the wet,the result is outstanding,the traction is amazing ,braking vastly improved,manged to find some standing water,went thought it with not even a twitch,and they run very quietly on the roads,even at high speed them seem faultless


got the 512's on my winter rims(Prodrive PF7's) they are a very good tyre even thought its now classed as an old tread pattern,but they don't come anywhere near the 912's...

so to summerise,if you want to middle budget tyres with good all round capabilities give them a try,you won't regret it

Re: Falken 912 Tyres

My WRX Wagon had 2 new 912's fitted on the near-side and 2 iffy tyres on the offside when I got it 3 weeks ago. Handling was suspect to say the least
Got 2 more 912's put those on the front and the slightly used ones on the rear.
Wow !! Scoobies do handle after all.
Must say the 912's seem to give as good grip as Eagle F1's I had on the Mitsi VR4 in most conditions.
