NS11's on my car for the last 3 sets. 1 on front and 2 on rear. Nice and grippy wet or dry, had some slight understeer issues but a driving style change fixed that.

Found them a lil soft as the fronts have worn out now in about 10 thou K's, but thats completely on driving style, you wont be dissapointed.

How do you wear out the fronts? Sure it's not an alignment issue?

yeah i got the 235x45x17 on the front and 255x40x17 on the rears, and they grip quite well.
i think they're the NSII's or something, but i'm happy with them.

anyone heard of the 235x45x17 federal tyres?
are they any good?

hi guys, wow i posted this ages ago , i chose the falken ze 326 over the nan kangs as they were very similar priced, but compared to my old goodyear ga's on 15inch these 18inch wheels plus tyres got like about 10 times more grip. i use to be able to make my car understeer and oversteer easily but not it takes alot of effort :D .
i'll probably try nankengs when i have to change this set of falkens as the replies seem to be very positive!!

Nah its all aligned prop. Got a castor/camber in it too. Just pushed em a bit too hard. Got a few shims removed and tightened up to try n slow down the wear. They are noisy but as someone else said, thats what systems are for.
