I replaced the front Pirelli’s last year with Falkens 452's. Done 3000 miles so far and pleased with them. Just as grippy as the Pirelli Nero’s and don’t tramline like the Nero’s did. They are also wearing evenly across the tread running on lowered suspension. The outer edges of the tyre are more rounded than the Pirelli’s so the actual tread width is less, so a smaller contact patch which may be helping with the tram lining. One down side is rim protection is pour. Overall a very good tyre for the money.
