I put a set of Falken Sinceras on the daughter's Camry January of '09 at 108,585 miles.

Took it in today (@ 133,777) to have 'em rotated and balanced and they said they couldn't - the tread on the fronts was split on the inside. Grrrr!! Don't have dinero for tires right now!

They gave me $50 off for each Falken on a set of Kumho Solus Xperts, so the OTD price was $270. Not great, but manageable. Next is the timing belt and maybe plugs (she's moving to Illinois in July).

They are a pretty heads up outfit. I deal with them here in Chi-Town.

Do they have a pretty good presence in Illinois?

They've always treated me right. Wheels and tires both.
One of the reasons I use them is there are just about everywhere and have a good road hazard warranty.
