Falkens GRB FK-451 or Nitto 555??

I currently got some Nitto 555 which are in need of replacement, which tires would you guys recommend the Falkens or Nittos. I had the Nittos for around 14-15 months they good but I dont feel like replacing tires every year. So whats your guys opinion on these two.. any other brand or recommendation is welcome. Thanks.

I had the Falkens 451, grip was OK, noise was bad, and the way the tire wraps around the wheels SUCKASS. I sold my set of wheels because the tires sucked soo much.

Currently on my new set of wheels, I'm running the Kumho MX's, they've been a load better than the Falkens and maybe slightly better than the nitto's. But the nitto's are priced lower I beleive.
