I've got a '87 BMW 528e riding on 8 month old Dunlop D60 A2s. They replaced some Bridgestone Potenzas which I found quite satisfactory. The tire shop didn't have Potenzas in my size and since I needed tires pronto, Ii opted for the Dunlops. I find they perform well on wet and dry pavement but they are much noiser than the Bridgestones. I spend a lot of time on the road; I'm looking for something to replace them with.

A friend recommends Falkens. He has them on his BMW '02 and swears by them. He says all the guys on the track race Falkens. (Anybody who knows the 528e knows you don't put that car thru a salom course or anything else resembling a track -- but I digress). I'm willing to give them a try but I can't find a local dealer who stocks them. The shop that services my car says to try Nittos or Pirellis'.

Anybody out there know anything about Falkens (or Nittos for that matter)?
