    boss
    https://tiresize.com/comparison/

    225/45 R18 fronts
    255/40 R18 rears

    are identical in diameter

    245/40 R18 will be 7mm less for the rear...

    You got PM boss. I think rear got better traction is safer. They say new tyres go rear.

    I know diameter wise it's slightly smaller but width is closer so less understeering tendency. Anyway 8.5j also better match fitment with 245. I'm also now using 225/45/18 & 245/40/18.

    FR setup naturally oversteers right? I kinda like the way my car handles now.. a bit of throttle it will still oversteer..

    So far so good. Wear still ok. Did a few braking, stops with plenty of room left. Wet also good so far, I only have experience with PS3 and not the PS4, FK510 is definitely just as composed as PS3 in the wet, I have confident and feel safe with it.

    Should be the 3rd Falken model quite highly recommended. Those days was the ST115 model, then the Ziex ZE-912, but this model later failed. Now the FK510 seems to be making a comeback for Falken

    Isn't there a ZE-914 already? Yes 912 was quite bad, my friend one was having issue back then.
