Yes, but the question to consider is, do you care about handling and feel, or not? If you don't care about handling and feel, and you care mostly about how much you pay for tires, get the ES100. If you DO care about handling and feel, and you don't care as much about how much you pay for tires, get the OEM tires (Yokohama A022H and Bridgestone RE010).Steve said:Yeah, in general probably not bad. They were decent on the M3 but caused the NSX to lose its' feel.
The Falken GR Beta FK451 tires are actually pretty good. I've been driving on the Yokohama ES100 tires for the past 4 months on my old 16/17 OEM wheels and from the regular driving I do around town and on the LA freeways, I've noticed a few differences. Both are rated around the same for tread wear (280) but I noticed the ES100 tires feel like they're a harder tire. Thus, I can swing the back end out pretty easy with the Yoko tires and driving at high speeds on the freeway, banking and merging onto another freeway or even taking an on or offramp fast, the ES100 tires feel like they want to break loose on me and cause the car to slide. With the Falken tires, I've noticed that it feels more sticky and I can take the same banks/on & offramps at the same speed the and car feels much more solid going around the turns. This may just be me or my type of driving, or the fact that they're bigger/wider tires, but in my opinion for an everyday daily driver tire the Falken GR Beta FK451 tires seem to be a great choice, especially over the Yokamama ES100 tire.
That's funny; my experience with the ES100 is exactly the opposite. So-so traction dry, outstanding in the rain, treadwear excellent too.freelance201 said:I put those on my gf's MR-S.....good traction dry, soso in the rain (use caution)....treadwear soso....
