Big fan of any BFGoodrich, they seem to last longer. Have had Dunlops that wear really fast. And had some vehicles with Michelins that blew up in the driveway, sister had some Michelins on her car and stranded her when they went out within 6 months. In fact, the dealer that I bought my Ram from will send any vehicle with Michelins back to Doge because Michelin wouldnt honer warranties on tires that didnt even make it 10K miles when the dealer turnind in the warranty paperwork.

I have the same tires, which are great when they're broken in properly, but mine are almost gone after 30,000 miles and they start to lose their bite the further you roll on them. I don't feel like I can take corners as confidently as I used to. Also if you hit a bump while turning they don't catch as quickly as they used to. Not saying its bad, and they're great tire, just make sure you keep an eye on the tread wear.

My IROC had ZIEX-512s on it, and boy did they have some grip - but they wore out insanely fast as well. Falkens are just very soft tires.

I'm looking into BFGoodrich's when I get my 18s.
