What tyre choice for my EL XR6?

Hey everyone.... has anyone had any experiences with these tyres?

http://www.falkentire.com/html/produ...12/ziex512.htm

$120 per tyre

Or

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....wk+SZ50+EP+RFT

$125 per tyre


Can anyone recommend anything else for about the same price.
Thanks!

Have a look at this thread:
Opinions on Bridgestone G-Grids

Particularly post 19 - Yoko 539 @ $125. Don't think you'd do much better than that.

I've used Falkens in the past, they are great.
I would also use 225/60/15.
