I'll send you a photo of a brand new Pirelli Cint on an S rim Nick. I had the other 4 still with perfect tread on my car until last year. Had to replace them because they were like 3penny bits after years of being laid up during the winter that created flat spots. They're now on a set of slave rims used when the car is stored.

I have brand new Falken Sincera SN-807 on my 3.5x10 S rims. Have them just over a year but not used them on the road yet.

Anyone used the Falken's and the Marshal's will need some budget friendly 145's soon, they will be for normal road use! I would appreciate peoples feedback on either tyre :D

I have the falkens sincera on 12" ( Mini 1000 ) and 10" ( not on a mini but on an Honda N600 :) ) .

They are quite ok on dry tarmac, and acceptable on wet.
Much better than the Camac's , for sure.

Cheers
Luis

Have used Falken 145s on 10" rims-no problems, predictable handling, good value!

That's good to know! I'm in two minds whether I should put 165s or 145s on my Estate...

I've used 145 Falkens on 2 different Mini's and have a set on my Mk2 currently (10" wheels). I find them to be quiet with good grip and consistent handling under dry conditions and to be ok under wet conditions. Would recommend without reservation for any road car. As has been mentioned, also a good value for a Japanese made tyre.

We’re Goodyear G800’s or Uniroyal Rallye 280 any good?


Rallye 280 are good, won a modern day rally on them in my 'S'!

I'm using the Falken 145x10 on 4.5 inch rims. Fit nicely under the arches, good predicatable handling in the dry, less grippy in the wet but still very predictable (on hydro).
