Falken Ziex ZE-502 M+S Tire Review

When the roads get wet or sloppy, the tires wide center groove and multi-sipes aid in evacuating water from under the tread and reducing the risk of hydroplaning. Falken has given the tire a randomized tread pitch sequence, which provides for a more quiet ride on the highway or around town.

Inside the tire you will find twin full width steel belts with jointless cap layers for added strength and durability at higher speeds, as well as improved tread wear and a better overall ride quality. Falken also features a 30,000 mile treadlife warranty, which is very good for high performance tires.


  • Dry and wet traction are both very good 
  • M+S rated for all-season conditions 
  • Minimal road noise and very comfortable 


  • Treadlife has been mentioned by a few owners
