Has anybody used these on a Coupe?

They're supposed to be very sticky and seem to rate well in reviews. I've been given a really good price of £225 for a full set (205/40/R17), I've read around on here and the Falkens seem to be quite popular. Is this purely down to them being a decent tyre with a decent price tag or do they suit the weight/handling of the Coupe's well?

I know from past experience that some cars work well with certain tyres and that more expensive doesn't always equate to more grip.

Cheers!!!

Will

Cool, I'll probably go along with getting them then. smile

What's the profile on 215s? Any advantage over 205s on a 7J rim?

yes - 205 will give you an incorrect rolling radius - 215/40 is the correct profile on a 17" wheel

I read somewhere that they can be "Challenging" in the wet....

Found it here: http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Tyre/Yokohama/Parada-Spec-2.htm

Love the tread pattern and nearly bought some, but reviews put me off a tad.
