Tyres: Falken FK452,any good?

I am going need to replace rear tyres on my scoob soon. It has the standard RE050's on at the moment, I was considering replacing all 4 with Falken FK452's.
Has anyone had any experiance with these tyres on their scoob?
I know lots of people on here use Toyo's but I have heard that you dont get good mileage out of them. Is this true?
Also the Falkens are a good price,245.20 for 4 from Camskill performance.

Hi,

Nelson (Karl) had falken 451's on his Classic.

Excellent dry and wet weather tyre at a bloody good price too. The 512 is a more everyday tyre and gives superb handling in the wet too.

I will be fitting Falkens to my Evo when my current ones need changing

use toyos myself, realy depends on how you drive on them tbh, its a toss up between grip and how long they last, soft = grip well but wear quickly, hard = long life but dont grip as well

I had avon zz3's and think if im honest they were perhaps slightly grippier, but, they are very very soft indeed so dont last at all
