Sporting impressive performance on dry or wet pavement is just the beginning for Falken’s Ziex S/TZ-04 tire. This model is also one of the most quiet and comfortable riding tires you’ll find in this category. Treadlife is longer lasting due in part to a deeper tread depth, and Falken backs it up with a 50,000 mile tread warranty.

With its high performance low profile tread design, the Parada Spec-X from Yokohama is all about providing a higher level of street performance for your truck, SUV or sporty crossover. Because this model includes sizes up to 30 inches, fitment possibilities are nearly endless. Reinforced shoulder blocks add strength for enhanced cornering grip, while continuous center ribs increase steering response and stability. All in all, this is a tire that has a lot going for it in this market.

The Scorpion Zero from Pirelli not only sports a uniquely aggressive tread pattern, but it has the street performance to match its looks. Traction and cornering grip on dry pavement is superb on this tire. Pirellis uses a Z styled tread pattern that helps the tire deliver increased steering response and enhanced braking performance. The ride is comfortable for the most part, making this a nice choice in sport truck tires.
