:?: I have narrowed my tire choice to two tires. The Falken Ziex ZE-502's and the Sumitomo HTR-4's. They are within $20 total shipped price of each other and was curious as to which one would be a better choice. Thanks,
Juan

how much does a set cost for each make.

Oh heck, only a $20.00 difference???

Go with the Sumitomo's, they are the stickier tire (my preference).

If you like the looks of a directional tire, then get the Falken's.

Up to you. :D

Both have been reviewed and blessed by members herein. I just put on a set of the sumitomos a week ago and I like them very much so far. Very sticky, hard to break rear loose now on dry pavement. I picked them over the Falkens because of the lower UTQG rating which may mean a slightly softer compound plus I know people locally who autox on Sumitomos and like them. I don't personally know anyone to have autocrossed on the Falkens, perhaps a member can chime in with a review.

had sumitumos behind the 1J supra, was very impressed with their performance, traction and stopping in particular.

just my note on the sumitumos. I had these on my old car and while they did drive nice and are sticky they diden't last very long.

sorry i dident keep the greatest records and at the time was pretty hard on my tires. I do know that it wasen't a year befor they needed replacement. I seemed to get much longer ware on my cooper cobras. (which I would also suggest looking into at about the same price range as the sumitomos).
