Only got 36,000 km from them, a long way from the 50,000 Bridgestone claim.

They are quiet, and have reasonable grip.

The alignment, like all EA-ED falcons needs to be done by someone who knows what they are doing.

(Before you ask, I do have adjustable camber and caster.)

They quickly wore on thier outside edge, and no matter what was done afterwards they wore like that permanently.

Now I have 16" falkens, and the result is a lot better. Grip, good wear etc. These I throughly recommend.

GR50's are around 120 a tyre here in Adelaide.

Falkens in a 225/60 16 are over 200, but it helps if you know a couple of people.

Usually 100-140 a tyre for a 205/65/15, depending on brand etc.
