I have the Yokohama A539s (in 225x50x16) on the rear of my XR6 and they are awsome in the dry. Very very sticky!. Can't tell you about the wear as they were on it when I got it. In the wet...no clue, it hasn't rained here since I got the XR.
Mind you, I've only had the XR for a week :)
Anyhow, I do have to say I'm impressed with the Yokohama A539s so far.
As for Falken, I used to have them on the EB V8 and I can say I will never buy them again. Look great, grip is horrible. Scary when driving in the wet, merge on to a freeway behind slow traffic (80kmh), boot the throttle and instant wheelspin into the next lane.
Has anyone looked at the Pirelli Drago's? Had them on the EB and they were fantastic (and only $125 each). Far far better than the Falkens.
