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 in return.
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
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 tread depth.
