Default Are Falken 828 Tires any good?

I was just quoted a price from Discount Tire for 4 tires. I want something that rides smooth and quiet. I don't need high speed performance.

Any thoughts on these being decent or should I consider something else?

I'm open to ideas.

Thanks.

Never had them but most of the times from Discount and Tire rack come with ratings and write-ups from people that have tried them. Google just the exact tire and see what people have to say. Usually, different tires stores come after searchng and you can read all about the tire your looking at.

did you go ask for cheap tires? what did they quote you?

"The Falken Sincera SN-828 is an all-season tire that not only provides year-round traction, but is one of the lowest priced tires you’ll find on the market today"

I've not tried Falken Tires, but I will recommend Coopers!

Cool Re: Are Falken 828 Tires any good?

I had Falken "Ecsta" STs on soonercruiser, and they were quiet and had good grip.
I just didn't get past 45K before I sold her.
But, they were still on her since the first two weeks!

When I got my PT it had a set of falkens installed on them. They rode smooth and were quite, they also only had 1/32 thread left on them and they were still smooth and quiet. I would buy another set if I wasnt addicted to yokohamas lol

I have them on my pt. We got them right before moving out from Vegas, about 2 years ago.

And, honestly, am not the most happy with them. I can't tell you the mileage I have on them, but I can tell you that they are starting to go. I'm hoping they'll last till Spring since I won't be driving that car in any snow. I passed on those tires for my other car when I needed replacements, and will probably go cooper next time.
