Falken Ziex ZE-512 Reviews

Falken Ziex ZE-512 tires combine all-season performance with a comfortable ride to make it one of the best selling tires on the market today. The Falken 512 sports a directional tread design, high performance characteristics and an availability in all sizes down to a 30 series tire.

The outside of this tread design features 5 circumferential grooves and a multi-radius shape to give it enhanced traction and handling on wet road surfaces. You’ll also find variable shoulder blocks to reduce road noise and a unique tread compound to give the tires a smooth comfortable ride.

Falken has added a rim protector to the outside of the tire in order to prevent damaging your custom wheels. On the inside of the tire you’ll find two wide steel belts for added strength and stability at higher speeds.

Overall, Falken has developed a solid all-season tire that combines some really nice performance features to go along with good ride characteristics and a long tread life. It’s easy to see why it’s such a popular choice with drivers.

Pros

  • Handling and traction are very good

Warranty

Falken tires backs up the Ziex ZE 512 tire with a variable treadwear guarantee. Tires in the 60 and 65 series models are backed with a 65,000 mile treadlife warranty. Models in 55 and lower series have a 40,000 mile guarantee. Considering the high performance characteristics of this tire that is a nice mileage guarantee. We’ve seen others in this class without a treadlife warranty entirely.

You will also find a 30 day satisfaction guarantee as well. Buy them and drive on them the first month, and if you are not satisfied you can return and exchange them out.
