I ould just like to get some opinions. So i drive a FWD car.

Would jy say it is better to Rotate tyres(every 10k km) and replace all four when the time comes?

Or

Just drive them till they are dead and replace 2 at a time?
that question is answered by the weight of your wallet

If you wanna fork our for two tyres every now and then you should only rotate the day you buy two new tyres for the back of your car

R917 per tyre, grip and feel is excellent!!! also ride is a bit more forgiving as they are not run flats like the bridgestones. As for wear, only time will tell only have them fiited for a month so far
hey, where did you find Falken FK453's for that price.
I can only Find ZE914's but the reviews show FK453's are better.
got it from errols tyres, but it was on special 4 months ago, much more pricey now but can vouch for the FK453's they are really good.

Currently they got special on Achillis ART Sport for 650. If you have it fitted at one of there partners then you dont need to pay for delivery.

Would you say they are better than Potenza's. I see they stock RE003s, perhaps for that price one can go PS3

Yes better than Potenza's for me, but at that price i would probably opted for PS3 as well.

PS just remember if you do go down the errols tyres route that they dont do the free delivery on Michelin or Bridgestones.

only on these brands
Achilles, Deestone, Dunlop, Falken, Federal, Gripmax, GT Radial, Hankook, Maxtrek, Maxxis, Nankang, Pace, Hercules, Sailun, Sumitomo, Sumo Firenza, Unigrip, Windforce and Yokohama plus Black Rhino & Turn1 wheels.

I took them with a pinch of salt, mainly because of the cars specified.
I went further and read some reviews of forums like pistonheads.
ZE914 seems more like a everyday passenger tyre, FK453 is an ultra performance tyre.

I do spirited driving quite often. I drive a newly tared back road everyday with some nice bends, I can't help but to go around corners fast.
So I'm looking for an ultra performance tyre. I currently have Potenza RE002s

Bridgestone Cape Town have no stock on my size tyres.

I need to replace the tyres soon, so worse case I can't find a proper tyre I'll buy the ZE914s just for the time being.

Do you have perhaps any recommendations?
I fitted the ZE914's 2 weeks ago.
Feels like softer sidewalls than the RE050's(apparently runflats, which would explain this).
But grip is good.
Still need try higher pressures.

Did you see improvements with higher pressure?
I found FK453 in Cape Town, but they come at bit of a price.
Some brand bias person told me to go with Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

Running 2.8 in the front, feels good. Same feedback at the Bridgestones. Grip still good.
Need to increase the rears now.

My wife had the Evo2's, they get very noisy. They also not so cheap anymore.
I got the ZE914's for R922ea
