pretty hard to advertise deals on tyres as there are many different sizes available but i was after the 225/40/R18 for my Golf R32 mk5 and found this company Camskill to be the cheapest compared to others and they deliver very fast (order before 1pm and will be with you the next day between 7:30am-5:30pm mon-fri )

These tyres come under budget mid range tyres but are highly respected on many forums and owner clubs out there, people say for the price your getting tyres that are brilliant on wet and dry roads and dont feel any different to the top end tyres such as michelin ,bridgestone etc

ive had these put on for a few weeks now and its been amazing breaking them in and compared to the bridgestone potenza i replaced i cant tell the difference in handing and grip

Excellent value,you can do a lot worse than Falken.

Voted hot!

Got these on my audi, shop said its the same tread pattern as a continental tyre, I think they're really good, better than the michelin i had before.

nice find..

That's a great delivered only price.

Obviously, fitting will be extra @around a tenner per corner depending on your local tyre fitter.

Camskill are local to me and are a great company too and I always use them.

Nice to see them mentioned on here.

For this size of tyre, it is a good price when you compare to premium brands such as Continental, Dunlop, Pirelli etc. Remember, that you will have to pay a garage/tyre fitter to fit the tyres to your rims, which will add to the price.

I have had two sets of these Falkens on my ST, and I would describe their performance as average. Good grip in the dry, but quite unpredictable in the wet. They produce quite a lot of road noise too, Also, they wear quite quickly if you have a sporty car with traction control, i.e. tyres always scrabbling for the best grip.

My latest change of tyre was back to Continental Sport Contacts, and I can really tell the difference in road handling and road noise.

So, a good deal if you are on a limited budget, but if you can afford a few quid extra, then do it.

Agree totally, had them and wont have them again (exactly the same tyre size).

Went for Hankook V12 Evos (another budget ish tyre) and over 50% better in my opinion and also lasted 6000 miles more than the Falken's on the same run to work etc.

Now running VREDESTEIN ULTRAC SESSANTA's and they are ok (they are around £115 per corner from camskill). Softer on the road but still prefer my Hankooks over these slightly more expensive brand.

Good price! That's exactly the same size tyre I need for my golf too! Shame I don't actually need new tyres right now and I have no where to store these..

I use Hankook V12 Evo's too, half the price of the Michelin Pilots I used to swear by and very good wet and dry too.

Have these on my Z4 Coupe - really rate them for the money - always used Eagle F1s previously but find these just as good for less cash.

Yes, vredestein ultrac sesantas here too - and tread patterns look absolutely superb!

Great tyres but not a particularly great price - I reckon in most areas you could get a local garage to at least match this price.

I was quoted £65 each last change by my local (one of the garages in Long Eaton, Nottingham) - I assumed he meant the 912s (which are also good tyres) but checked and they were the 452s

Great grip - terrible wear. 8k miles tops.

Good tyres, i have them replacing the Continentals on my Fiesta Titanium but they were the same price in my local dealers and i live in a little village in Wales....

I always buy my tyres from Camskill. Budget ones are no different to the more expensive ones other than the expensive ones may last longer (this comes from somebody I know who works for one of the expensive manufacturers). I have the cheap ones on my S-Class and have never had a problem.

The delivery company they use is a bit rubbish. 4 tyres I ordered all arrived individually and on different days.

The Falkens are quite good in dry and wet but hopeless on snow and ice. Wear is average.

I am currently trying out Accelera Beta tyres which get good reviews, and are cheaper than the Falkens.

I don't understand people who buy expensive sports cars and then go looking for cheap poor quality rubber. I guess if you could really afford the car you can afford decent tyres. It makes me wonder what else has been compromised; maintenance, servicing, insurance ?

what??????

Who told you that, I can tell the difference between a £30 tyre and a £150 tyre in regards to grip and I reckon 90% of people can also.

The rubber they use is usually totally different. Fifth Gear or something like that done a test with a budget no name tyre against a well known brand and the results were interesting. Cheap tyres can be very unsafe due to their compound.

Same tread pattern means jack all

I have these fitted on my Golf GTI, and find them good tyres for the money. Only downside for me is they are noisy. Before these I was going through Conti Sport contacts like nobodys business (lasting 6-7k miles) and decided I was not going to pay £130 per corner for tyres anymore, So I had the car properly 4 wheel aligned, and since then tyre wear has decreased dramatically.

I've always used Camskill since finding them many years ago however just found "all new tyres" who I've bought the Falken ZE912's from for £57 each on a 215-45-17 size, this was the best price I could find and in general they matched Camskill very closely.
I've used FK 452's on my 230bhp fwd car for many years and never had any problems with them, generally they've always got great reviews I've found.

I always buy falken fk452 for my audi quattro 250bhp. I average approx 16k per set of Tyres. Perfect for daily driving if a tad noisy. I don't race on tracks and if you are then other Tyres are better out there for you.

I've just bought two tyres from BLACK CIRCLES.COM , they were the best value I could get, would be worth a comparison for anyone interested in new shoes for their car.

Brilliant tyres I got 16k from my last set
Just got 2 new fronts fitted on Tuesday

Blackcircles charged £181
But they offer a fully fitted service at a local garage.

Forgot to say, camskill generally offer the best price unfitted for falkens in the UK. However most garages will charge 10-15 pounds per tyre to fit these if not bought from them. So adding these costs on bring the price up close to fitted prices offered by other suppliers I.e black circles etc

You pays your money and takes your choice, don't always be so complacent and stick with a tyre because it was good one year, technology moves on. I have just ordered my set of Dunlop Asymmetric Eagle F1 AS2, but I managed to get them for £157.20 each fitted which wasn't bad. I have to wait too long for Continentals and didn't want to wait - Sports Contact 5 is the new Conti tyre, far better than a SP3 but wears a little quicker.

As someone said why would you put cheap tyres on a car if it a question of a few pounds and in an incident it would save your life by allowing greater control and stopping distances are shortened.

Good place to start at reviews in general for motoring is ADAC, depend on your German though...translated for anyone...

well thats a load of crap lol, Im guessing hes a cleaner at this tyre manufacturers??

If i put budget tyres on my MR2 Turbo it will loose traction in the dry easilly, bang some good premium tyres on and all is good.

fair enough if its just town driving like 20 - 30mph and your fitting them to a micra you might not notice much difference....

Been using Camskill for years - I'm surprised they're not posted here more.
Always coming up trumps with prices and service.

Not bad reviews here:

Agreed. I've just a full set of the cheapest nastiest tyres for my my ST 220, £45 each. Can't argue with the price but they are terrible, I'm dreading the rain/snow. The tyre size advertised above is for a Corsa? Same size as mine lol.

I just put Uniroyal Rainsport 2 on my Mundaneo ST and they're excellent and would thoroughly recommend them to you. Got them for £88 ish from camskill a month ago

Had a set of these on a Mondeo Mk2 V6. It always chewed through its front tyres but with these it was even less mileage before they needed replacing! Grip wise was OK, price wise was OK [but cost in a local garage needs to fit them - in my case it was £15/wheel). Replaced with Firestone TZ's and they were much better wearing although the car got scrapped before they wore out so I don't have a end mileage.

Current car is on Vredestein's and these seem good.

Camskill are good whatever brand you purchase!

Exactly, the last thing I want when buying tyres is to have had some tyre company gimps, sitting in a room, discussing how they can make their tyres cheaper.
I want the entire process driven by safety, not cost, and am happy to pay for that. I want tyres that perform in the cold, when they're hot, in the rain, under load, stand up to potholes, resistant to punctures etc etc

Buying budget tyres is like buying a budget crash helmet, you might save a few quid but you also might not live to regret it.

VREDESTEIN ULTRAC SESSANTA's + 1. Had them (235/45/R19 - a real pig of a size to find) on an Audi A6 3.2 V6 quattro and they were very good, looked the part as well. People saying bugdet tyres won't grip on my ST - very true, but its more to do with the engineering of the car than the tyre.

You put 200bhp (ish) in a front wheel drive, budget, small family car then complain about the tyres....behave yourselves....

Rainsport 2 are the best tyre - bar none - in the wet. Great for the UK climate, mediocre on dusty summer roads though. Also Camskill are an awesome company and i always use them.

great price. Shame I need 245/40/R18

Great deal. Fitted two recently from black circles for £85 each. Excellent tyres and have lasted for awhile.
