Rated 5 out of 5 by teenagerAT60 exceeded my expectations
after shopping for the best value in tires, I trusted the Pep Boys tire ratings for the Falken ZIEX ZE950's and bought a set for my Infiniti G37 even though i had to wait a week for the tires to arrive. These tires replaced my 45000 mile Michelins.
I picked up my car and have never regretted buying the Falken's. My car drives like it lost 1000 pounds. It feels so much quicker in every way. I popped it up to 120 and it never drove so good. Cornering is great as well, with very little roll. Unfortunately, i'm 60 but driving like a teenager again. I'll rate the durability as a 5, but with the way i'm driving, we'll never know if it was the tires or the driver that wore out quicker.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SFLDriver So far so good
Just got these tires to replace the OEM Nexens on a 2015 Kia Optima SX Turbo (had since 2014 approx 30K miles). Spent a few days researching and comparing reviews. Was between these and the BF Goodrich g-Force Comp-2 and the Cooper Zeon RS3-A. All very close in price point when you utilize the current offers and coupons etc.... Better pricing than OEM from the dealership once you add install charges, shop fees and all those extras. Ultimately after comparing the reviews I chose the Falkens. So far so good. Grips well on wet roads. Noise is negligible; about the same as the OEMs and nothing that is distracting. The "look" is sporty if that is a factor for you. Service Center at my local Pep Boys was great. I setup the purchase and appointment online. When I arrived they were ready for me and had the tires waiting up front. Took about an hour for the work to be completed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Deanotires Great in the rain!
We purchased these tires with the sole purpose to obtain better traction on wet streets. These tires have provided great traction in rainy conditions. Hope they do well in the snow also!

I purchased these to replace the OEM Bridgestone run-flats on my Infiniti Q50. I did a bit of reading and I read some complaints about the road noise. The road noise is MUCH MUCH less then the OEM fun-flats. I have driven these through 2 decent snowfalls and I can tell you they are better than the Bridgesones in the snow. Almost as good as dedicated snow tires. They also offer superb handling and wet weather performance during enthusiastic driving. Don't let the cheap price scarce you. Just buy them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Freereign Excellent traction
Traction on these tires is very good. The only reason I gave them 4 stars is that I seem to have lost some fuel economy with this set than with the previous tires. The tires are inflated properly but they just don't seem as fuel efficient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mario1957 Great tires!
My 2013 F150 has 150,000 miles on it. I wore out the first set of MIchelins and bought another set of the same. This time, I decided to buy Falken ZIEX ZE950 based on some reviews I read. I have put about 3000 miles on the tires. I didn't expect them to be quieter than the Michelins, but they are noticebly quieter. I've driven in the pouring rain and in drizzle, and they handle very well. I'm thrilled. I highly recommend these tires. They will also save you about $400 over a set of Michelins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by B309302 Amazing
Just replaced all 4 tires on a 2012 eclipse. The Bridgestone Potenzas I had have nothing on these. Traction and cornering is a lot better. Wet traction is excellent and feels like driving on a dry road, even in pouring rain. No slipping no hydroplaning where the Potenzas used to. Road noise is no different, and the car handles better then new. Love these. Highly recommended.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Wheez not impressed
Less than one week after purchasing these tires I had a "rock" puncture the front tire resulting in a flat. The tire was repaired with a plug and now I have a brand new tire with a rubber plug protruding through the tread. I am not confident with the integrity of these tires if a rock is able to penetrate the tire.

I've been driving on these tires daily now in my Audi RS4 for about 2.5 months. They have been wonderful in the dry and wet weather. I have yet to use them in snow. I can take corners at much higher speeds, and they just stick to the road. They do not have a loud road noise, and the ride is smooth. I would recommend these tires, especially for the cost. So far, so good!

These tires saved my life! To avoid being side swiped I had to pull hard to the left then back to the right and was able to avoid not one but 2 cars coming at me on a wet road.They handle great rain or shine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JRDreview Great so far
I did a lot of research on all weather (vs. all season) tires that would perform respectably in the winter. There were possibly a couple of better choices, but one was not available in my sixe and the other offered less tread life.
These tires have a very aggressive tread and certainly look like they will do well when the snow flies. Surprisingly they are no louder than the tires I replaced and there is no vibration. Happy with my choice and these tires.

Rated 5 out of 5 by trevnicGA Great everyday performance tire!
Just replaced soft OEM tires (Hancook) on my 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris with these tires. They are much sturdier with a performance look and solid side wall. The van already handles amazingly better. They have a very nice deep tread and great traction as well. They also had the same tread wear as the OEM tires which were not as tough and had less tread. Great buy!!!

The price was right and they seem decent. No complaints about road noise and they handle just fine. I'll post more once they have a few more miles on them.

Great tires, perfect handling, adjust to road changes because of weather without problem. A little noise but can be easily tuned out.

Brought these tires for my 2010 Prius.They are great. Much quieter than the tires that came with the car. So far i haven't seen any decrease in mileage, this was a concern, but appears to be unfounded.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Higheelmurder Awesome Tire for the Price
I switched from Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tires because I was tired of buying tires every 10k - 15k miles, and these have a 45k mile warranty! Initially the ride is much smoother (hard to achieve on 205/40R17 rubber) and I find that the performance on wet roads and concrete is much better than the RE050As could ever muster. For everyday driving, there is no comparison, these take the cake. The RE050A tires would get incredibly hot in the summer, skid in the wet, feel incredibly stiff, and they would pick up every possible nail, screw or metal object in the road.
At half the price, this tire is close to the same responsive performance, yet it excels in categories that I need for everyday driving. Compared to other high-performance tires this is a much better everyday choice without completely sacrificing performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BrianB These tires are pretty awesome
I installed these on my 2001 Mazda Protégé ES and I love them. The handling is great in dry and wet conditions and above average in the snow. Sidewalls seem pretty stiff so it might be a bit rough for some but I like it. Only about 6000 miles on them so far so too early to rate treadwear but so far so good. My son bought a set for his Crown Victoria!

Rated 4 out of 5 by sm63racing Perfect compromise
This tire is a wonderful compromise between the shorter life sports tires, and the more comfortable touring tires.
Pros: Solid amount of grip
Mild road noise
Better dirt/gravel traction than most street/sports tires
Cons: Easily break traction under acceleration
Sidewall flex at turn in takes getting used to
Does not inspire confidence under sudden severe breaking
For an all purpose tire, this is probably the best tire I have ever driven on. Capable of extremely spirited tarmac driving, and is the fastest DOT tire in my class in the dirt. The only reason I will not be buying again is because I will be racing on dedicated dirt tires next year, and will be mounting far less comfortable tires for the street.
