    Tyres for my coupe

    OK, I've got to get a new pair of tyres so far I've got it down to the Falcon 452's, Kumho ecsta's or the Yokohama Parada spec 2's.
    Which ones would you go for? Also if anyone is using the Parada Spec 2's are they as bad in the wet as online reviews say?

    Spec 2's are awful in the wet, i put 4 new ones on my last car, fair enough it was overpowered for what it was but they couldnt do anything, in the dry on the other hand they where immense

    Id personally pick Falcons over Kumho too

    from what i've heard, the spec 2's are very soft and rarely last more than 5000 miles. have had both the kuhmo's and falkens (currently running them) and can't complain at all. good in the wet and dry try camskill.com for cheap prices

    Rubbish - I'm on the 2nd set of Yoko's they last quite a while defo 10k a set, they are brilliant in the dry but are so-so in the wet

    Demon Tweeks £260 for a set of 4 on my Sri T
