First, holy ****. That's awful. I stopped rocking falkens a while back. Hope the wheels are ok and that you're alright. That could have been much worse.

My previous set of Tires on the E55 were FK452's as well. Lasted me no more than 6 months (I wonder why), but I also experienced a blow out, luckily I wasnt on the freeway tho. I will never run those tires again. Too soft for my liking.
