I didn't do a great distance on Falken FK 452 to assess them eventually but this can be treated as a pre-assessment. The tyres did about 2400 miles to Italy and back - on the motorway they are doing great - less rolling resistance than on my previous Michelin Pilots and Uniroyal RainSports. In the city Falken FK 452 also are not bad - especially on bumpy roads - I am "lucky" to drive on such roads very often :) - well, advantages of 18" wheels and condition of the paths... because they can't be called roads. Great grip in fast bends, but, of course, it's possible to overdo, the rear at some point starts to swerve strongly, on Michelins I could sense their limits better (and the price limit, too ;) - for the benefit of Falken, of course). Anyway, they're great in dry, they also do well on wet. I heard they wear off quickly (that's why I gave a 5) - as for now, I don't see that because of a small distance driven but somehow I don't see any chance for replacing them after 20 thousand miles ;). What really surprised me is the fact they are quiet - it's their great advantage. They may be a little noisy during the last phase of braking, but it's bearable noise. it's not that important, but they look nice. I hope I'll be able to write the same thing afterr 20 thousand miles. Of course, I'll try to post an update.

I boughtFalken FK 452 tyres along with the wheels on an auction - they were used by their previous owner. He assured that he has been using them for one season and they looked almost like new, except for one that got hit had quiate a large bulge on its sidewall as the fringe protector got damaged, so it had to be replaced. Their grip on wet and on dry is sensational. Previously I used a low-profile 16 inch Pirelli PZero Nero, it was softer and had slipped a bit on wet, and Falken FK 452 don't have such issue, and I drive a lot in rain. My assessment about comfort is not relevant because there not much of it on profile 30 :) I'm not complaining about noise level. A lot of people complain about the balancing - I put my Falkens on and nothing happens. When it comes to their wear-off, I've been using them only for one season and they are still far from their wear index. They look fine but visually I preferred Pirellis. When it comes to rolling resistance, I changed from 205/16 to 235/20 and fuel consumption increased, but it's because of the wheel size, not only the tyre. I'll try to add more assessments after I replace my faulty tyre.

Hello to all interested with Falken FK 452. Frankly speaking, the tyre is worth the money spent on them, is of very good quality and provides a great using experience. I drive a Mercedes 600 SEL with over 400 HP engine, which is a large and heavy car, I drive at moderate speeds (up to 95 MPH), but no sudden starts or brakings. Both on dry and wet the Falken FK 452 behaves very well, also in the corners, even those taken with higher speed. I am pleasantly surprised by the low noise level and rolling resistance, they're really quiet tyres, even on cobbled roads. Falken FK 452 look very sporty, aggressive tread pattern suggests an aggressively aspirated tyre. I'll buy these Falkens again for sure when I have to change the tyres and see how many miles can be made on them. To sum up - I'm very satisfied with Falkens and would recommend them in good conscience to all who don't want to overpay for the more expensive products that are not necessarily better.

I bought the Falken FK452 trusting in Japanese quality. I was right to some extent. The tyre grips well on dry asphalt and it's awesome on wet, drains water greatly and you have to do a lot to get aquaplaning on these ones. But the tyres had some problems with balancing, and after about 4000 miles the wheels started to vibrate. With tyres out of the question I replaced my brake discs, pads, upper and lower levers, bolts and I checked my alloys in order to verify that they are not crooked. After half a year of struggle and renofating the car the traction balancer showed that, unfortunately,Falken FK 452 are no longer usable. I have to mention that the problems occured on the way back from the seaside and not on the city streets. If it wasn't for that they have to be used carefully, and they cause trouble (and they qare only two years old), Falken FK 452s would be very good tyres.

I did about 8 thousand miles on these tyres. Traction on dry surface is great and the same goes for wet surface. Generally speaking, I didn't see any difference between driving on dry and wet. Abrasion of the tyres is also good - after about 8 thousand miles the tread has just started to wear off. They don't make a lot of noise, but their driving comfort and shock absorbing properties could be better. When it comes to behaviour on snow and ice, I gave them high marks because I didn't want to lower their overall note. I recommend these tyres because they have a great look and superb performance, and the price is much lower than top class brands. By the way, when compared with Dunlop SP Sportmaxx and Bridgestone Potenza, Falken FK 452 gets first place, because its performance isn't much different from Dunlop's, and is much cheaper.
Falken FK 452 is designed for a demanding rider, who wants safe, but also fast sporty ride. It has been designed with the use of latest technologies. It interacts perfectly with electronic safety systems such as ESP and ABS. Falken FK 452 was created with high quality material, ‘New Silica’. The compound is resistant to wear and high temperature. It provides long mileage and better traction.
The entire structure is reinforced with internal steel belts. The model features a directional tread pattern, which consists of five-line system of ribs. The engineers of Falken used a flat profile with slightly rounded edges, which has provided a very large area of the tyre footprint. It contributes to even tread wear, reduces rolling resistance and significantly improves adhesion.
Directional grooves remove water from the centre of the tyre to the sides, so that nothing interferes in contact of the tyre with the road. Even at high speeds, the tread design of Falken FK 452 ensures smooth and comfortable driving. Low noise level is guaranteed by a special combination of blocks, which means higher driving comfort.
