Default Quick question on Falken FK452

Has anyone ran through a set of them here? It'll be nice if you could provide some reviews in terms of dry/wet traction. Also how does it perform as it wears out? I've heard very mixed reviews on wet traction. Some say it's good, some say it's just horrible, so I thought it might have something to do with different cars.

These are usually tires we all use on our daily driver cars

I run these on my street wheels. I have had good luck with them, got almost 10k out of the rears. They were good in the rain through the first 75% of the tire life.

If you hit a puddle with <25% left you better be ready to dance, but otherwise they were great tires. I would recommend them for spirited street driving, but not HPDE duty. They are relatively quiet and very predictable.

I have them as well, about 12k miles on the rears and over 24k on the fronts. The rear is starting to loose alot of grip in the dry, even with some tread left. They need to be replaced.
I would rate them good in the wet, never had any issues at high speeds. It isn't difficult to break the rear loose at low speeds in tight corners though.
