Default My Falken 452 tires (tyres) discontinued!

What a bummer, I go to the tire shop to replace my rear tires only, and they no longer carry the Falken 452 anymore. I searched the Falken website, and they are no longer available.

Instead of replacing my rears I now have to replace all four tires.

Well, I figured this can be an opportunity to explore other brands, any suggestions?

I also came across a few review videos that are keeping me for making the right decision.

Toyo Proxes T1 Sport
(Reviewer suggests great control, heavy duty sidewall and provides great feedback along with quiet)
Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110
(Reviewer complaint the sidewall are not stiff enough to standard Z rating)
Falken Azenis FK453
(No reviews)
So Falken 452 owners what tires will you be replacing your tires with?

Generally when they discontinue a tire, the manufacturer recommends a replacement. What might that be? If the tread pattern is about the same and you like the Falkens, I'd suggest going that route for the rears. On the other hand, if you want to explore other brands, you might want to sell off the good two tires and go that route.

Jayassa thanks for the reply, the Falken 452 treads are directional where the new flagship or maybe the recommended Falken are the 453 and the tread pattern are asymmetric.

I have a few friends that swear by those Hankooks. I've always had decent luck with Kumho.

Hankook's are def too soft for me had them on my old 545i style 124. I took was a fan of the FK452's U had the 453's put on the rear brand new, no complaints and they sure do stick.

Did you search Google? I came up with this:

225-45-17 Falken FK452 Tire

You didn't say what size you needed.

Jayarras, Im actually going to ditch the 452 since they no longer available at my tire shop or on Falken's website. So i can try another brand or even try the Falken 453.
