Falken Aznis 512

Well I got them on my e30 several months ago(Thank you Mystikal), and all I can say is that they rule the road in the dry weather. They are definitely more agressive then a lot of tires out there, including my Dunlop Sports I had before, with a Decent tread wear rating ( I believe it was 312?). Price per tire is good as well, and over all I can even see them being used in the Auto X next year.( ) My only peeve with them is that in the wet I dont have very great traction, when launching or taking turns at high speeds, but that could definitely be due to the incredible negative camber my car has.
Overall I think they are worth their money, and from what I have heard, are doing very well against the competition. If anyone wants to add to this, feel free.

Nah, he's talking about the all-season Azenis line. Here's a CR review:



They're actually really good in the rain, Terry's tires just look like this from the back: / \

Just got these tires installed today. Must say . So far they feel amazing...only driven them in the dry though. Handling feels awesome, noise is minimal. Ill let you guys know how they do in the rain/snow as soon as we get some.

Seem to work great in the wet too. Last night it had drizzled a bit so i decided to break them in in the parking lot and test them out. Worked amazing, even on rly hard cornering they barely lost grip (my car is an ix tho so that may have somethin to do with it )

so far, very impressed

they are actually pretty good...
even though i found a way to break them loose all the time(but that's just me LOL)
usually 3 season tires will preform decent on the rain(if not at this time due to being too cold to begin with)
you really need to warm them up
you will be amaized with them during the summer taking offramps at triple the speed

ps:but rules of physics still stand true!!!
