    I have been running them for over a year and they are good enough for my 280 bhp coupe!

    Yes if you spend twice as much you may get a better tyre, but you'd bloody expect to!

    Oh yes, my wife has them on her TT too!

    I got them in the front on mine. used to have 512's but the 452's are much better, they shirft the water really well in the wet too.

    As said, if you spend more you will get a better tyre but for what they cost they're extremely good value for money

    not tried them but i can personally HIGHLY recommend michelin pilot sport PS2's if you're after something solid. pretty much the top rated tyre. the grip is just mind blowing.
    I got a set of four 235/40/18's for £260 off ebay.

    I had 512's before and they didn't even last 10,000 miles. I was outraged!!

    I've got falken 452s all round - 225 35 18s They seem to be hard wearing, so obviously a softer tyre would give better grip but saying that its hard to get my car to slide and you can't get any better in the rain imo.
