Falken Ziex ZE-912 Tire Review & Rating

With an asymmetric tread design and all-season performance, the Falken Ziex ZE-912 is built for drivers of high performance sport compacts, sedans and even older muscle cars.

The ZE912 sports an aggressive hybrid tread pattern that includes Rotation Wear Indicators. These indicators immediately let you know how much tread is left on the tire and to know when it’s time to perform routine tire rotation and maintenance as well.

Falken Ziex ZE-912 Tire Review

Larger shoulder blocks and a stiffer tread compound enhance dry surface handling and grip, while four circumferential grooves and an infinite number of sipes throughout the tread increase performance in all types of weather and road conditions, and improve hydroplane resistance.

Falken also uses High Angle Variable Cross Grooves technology in the tread to help in reducing tire noise. Most drivers have mentioned minimal road noise while driving on this tire.

Twin steel belts that are nylon wrapped aid in providing added strength and stability at higher driving speeds, as well as enhancing tread wear and tire life.


  • Dry surface grip and handling are good   
  • Ride comfort is nice and road noise is minimal   
  • Economically priced tires   


  • Tread life needs improvement   
  • Snow traction is an issue for many drivers   

Overall Thoughts

As high performance all-season tires go, these Falken 912’s are above average when compared to other models in this class. While they ride comfortably and grip on dry road surfaces is good, they can slide under heavy acceleration when the roads turn wet or snow starts to stick.

One area we would like to see improved is the treadlife. Depending on how spirited your driving is you may not get as many miles out of the tire that you would expect. That said, if you don’t have your foot mashed against the accelerator every day, you will have better results.

Overall, if you are on a tight budget, but would like to upgrade your current tire set, this tire may be a good option for you.
