6 Series
The BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

Question Falken Tires vs. Other brands

Hey folks, I'm thinking of buying some Falken 452's in the spring .....anyone know if these are pretty good tires?

I don't race or drive like a nut (most of the time) so i'm not looking for the best out there....my other choice was Toyo's but they are about double the price

I have these on mine and have no complaints at all. The ratings at TireRack actually rated them pretty decent as well. I think for the money, they are very decent. And, as you know, every tire manufacturer differs slightly in their production sizes, these seem fairly true and hefty for their size (meaning they don't look stretched on a stock wheel compared to others that may). I run the stock 245 and 275 widths on mine and the sidewalls are nice and flat, not stretched.

Falken FK452 are good tires. Also, another good choice Ive sold numerous tires are the Nexen N3000, or the Hankook Ventus V12 Evo.
