Designed for drivers looking for a high performance all-season tire for their sport coupes or sedans, the Ziex
ZE-612 from Falken sports some of the latest advances in tire technology to make driving more enjoyable.
The asymmetrical tread pattern and state of the art tread compound enhance dry surface traction and steering
response. Larger shoulder blocks around the tire provide additional cornering power throughout the speed range.
Wet handling and grip are enhanced through the four circumferential grooves and multi-sipe design around the
tread. They work to expel more water away from the tire and minimize the risk of hydroplaning, while providing more
bite on snow or slush covered roads.
One area that Falken has paid attention to is in making the ZE-612 more comfortable and quiet on the highway or
around town for that matter. High Angle Variable Cross Groove technology keeps road noise at a minimum. This is
something that is mentioned by many drivers as well.
Falken includes either a 65,000 or 40,000 mile tread warranty depending on tire size. The ZE612 is available
exclusively through Discount Tire or America's Tire.
Excellent dry surface grip and cornering power
Surprisingly good ride comfort
Minimal outside road noise
Inexpensive tire with a good warranty
Winter weather traction could be improved upon
Some have had issues with a shorter tread life
The ZE-612 is similar in every way to the ZE-912. The only difference is that the 612 is exclusive to Discount
Tire. That said, like the 912, this tire performs well on dry or wet road surfaces. Cornering and steering response
are equally impressive.
On the other hand, winter weather driving traction may be an issue for some, and others have mentioned a shorter
than expected tread life. Overall, we feel this is a pretty good tire for the money spent. While they are not a
high-performance Michelin tire, you'll spend less money and have a decent set of higher performing all-season tires
The tread warranty is split according to the size selected. For 60 or 65 series tires, a 65,000 mile tread
warranty is included. For 55 series models and under, a 40,000 mile guarantee is included.
Materials and workmanship are backed for life, or to the final 2/32 inch of tread depth, on any tire size. Free
replacement is given for the first 2/32 inch of wear, which is followed up with a prorated amount for the remaining
