Falken Ziex ZE950 A/S Tire Reviews
(Based on 45 Reviews)
These are excellent all weather tires. I will continue to use these tires. I've used them for 4 years or more consistently with success.
I bought these tires in June and I've been extremely happy with these tires so far, including in the rain. I have not yet experienced winter snow with them. I thought it was a great price for good tires.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
I wouldn't buy these again unless I lived in a drier climate. They look really nice and we're an overall improvement vs the OEM. My biggest gripe is with hydroplaning, especially that as tread wore down, hydroplaning was scary bad. These require religious rotation as the front wears them down fast.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
GREAT TIRES FOR THE PRICE!!!! Excellent in rain. We’ve gotten a bunch of rain in Indiana and they’ve done amazing. A couple weeks ago we had maybe 1-2 inches of snow and they didn’t slip without me trying, but that wasn’t much snow. So far I love these tires!
I have these tires on my Datsun 280z and it is not driven as a daily driver and mostly on good weather days. Handles great on dry roads and is a comfortable ride with little noise on both city and highway driving.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Good tires handling improved slight decrease in ride but almost unnoticeableBy submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Tires handle great rain or shine. Kind of disappointed in the tread life though, currently have 25,000 miles on them and they are needing to be replaced soon. In the middle of figuring something out with Falken. I haven't had this bad tread wear with these tires before, maybe I just got a bad batchBy submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Just got these for my 2012 Prius c in 195/50/16 and couldn't be happier. Affordable, quiet, comfortable and great traction. Will be purchasing agian.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Tire life and wear are extremely good. Had to replace mine at about 40k due to inside tire wear, not because of the tires, but because of my vehicles suspension components. If not for this, I could have easily gotten another 5-10k out of them. There was no presence of cracker or any other type of damage/wear to the tire besides already mentioned. Only issue I had was a slight reduction of performance in wet handling conditions. Nothing too major, but definitely noticed. Cannot speak to snow handling performance (live in Socal).By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.

Had been running Nitto Neo Gen on both 2003 and 2013 Cooper "S", both cars 6-speed manual and got a little over 30,000 miles before switching to Falken ZIEX 950 AS. So far more than happy with these; less noise, they balanced with a lot less weight and have adequate grip. Will definitely buy more ZIEX tires.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Put on a 2003 Cooper "S" after using Nitto Neo Gen tires for 31,000 miles. The ZIEX are quieter and balanced better. Went down in diameter from 205/50 - 16" to 205/45 - 16", stock is 195/55 - 16" (run-flats; noisy!!!) This is about a 5% reduction in "gearing" and gives the Mini better 5th and 6th-gear muscle. In hill country, off the Interstate, and braking; it shines.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
This is an excellent tire for rain sleet snow or hail. Due to the unpredictable weather here in Georgia lately I've experienced it all. Simpletire is also an excellent choice and has never let me down. They always go out of their way to make a situation right. Thank you
Great looking tires handles and performs great on dry wet and slick roads ... I do lots of highway and back road driving as in county gravel roads .. they are wearing great and evenly across definitely worth the money ... I will have another setBy submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Bought these tires twice for my abarth. I’m a daily driver and take my car to race once a week. They don’t wear fast and they have great handling in any weather condition. I definitely recommend these tires!By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Got a set of 4 for Honda Fit. It runs great in the downpour rain. No complain so far.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
These are the best tires I have ever used. They make driving in rainy weather effortless. Reaction is excellent. I will continue to special order these tires because they are very important to my safety while traveling to and from work at night.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
I've purchased this tires two times. I am super satisfied with them and I am sure they can beat many other fancy brand's tires. I strongly recommend everyone.
Good , quick service ,
Very good quality tires. You will love the service after the sale it's wonderful. They give great customer service a real person and no automated calls. And most of all satisfaction with tires which after checking are as competitive to what you may find any where out there. the tires come straight to your door and the shipping is free how can you beat that.
This is my second set on my Accord, They last about 60k have excellent traction in the snow. i'm keeping up with the awd and 4wd vehicles. They grip the road in wet and do not hydro. really pleased with the first set and that is why i purchased again.
My second set of tires and once again a great choice.
Falken Ziex ZE950 A/S is great through the canyon and very little noise on the highway..I cant wait to drive it in the rain to see how it perform...to be cont..
2 years and 20,000 miles later, nothing but good things to say about this tire. Definitely worth it. Well performing tire at a very reasonable price.
Give these tires a try. First time purchasing them and I'm quite impressed. Handling is excellent. 30% cheaper than the major brands.
These tires so far are performing as expected on my charger balanced well slightly louder then the Pirelli tires I had before but handle in the rain a ton better
I live in Arizona so I can't give a true winter rating. But the tread looks good walking up to and so far with how I drive I have nothing but good to say about these tires so far but I also have less than 1k on them. So far so good
Quiet tires ...excellent traction in 3 inches of snow.
these tires lasted longer than the O.E. got about 25k off 2 of the O.E. so I replaced 2 with falcon 950 suv has around 70k now so I am happy 45K Very good buy... replaced two at a time these last 2 tire make six total... simple tires has the best pricing on falcon. I know because I work for a tire dealer Goodyear franchise simple tire was 4.00 less for rubber and did not pay the other fees that you see on the bottom line disposal FET tax ST tax and no charge shipping so I didn't need to pick them up. the shipping was like 2 days ....had them drop them at my work.....................
I have purchased Falken Ziex before but this time its for a different vehicle. The first set was great and handled well in all conditions. Wet handling is good but that doesn't mean speeding on highways in raining conditions, any tire can hydroplane. Tire handled great in snow WHEN NEW, again with any tire the more wear the less they perform in snow conditions. Tire wear on this tire is average it will last a very long time if you are city driving and occasional road trips. If you are a highway driver and take curvy on and off ramps daily, or highway interchanges daily you will notice the wear on the tires! When these tires wear and it is time for new ones GET NEW TIRES!! As I delayed getting new ones and went to get an oil change and the mechanic showed me my tires and the wires were showing when its time to replace they do not last much longer after that! For the price and performance of these tire you cant go wrong with these tires thats why I made purchase number two of these same tires for a new vehicle. Tires look great and tread pattern really helps in wet weather and control of vehicle. I would recommend these tires however if you have the money to spend I would get a more notable brand name tire like Goodyear ect. But this is the best alternative to the lesser brand names that I am not familiar with that are sold here. I would purchase these again when needed.
I put these tires on the back of my 2006 Miata replacing some Pirelli's. Bad mistake. the car is now"twitchy" going down interstate and good highways in the dry. Going around semi fast corners at 60 mph the car wants to go where it wants to, not where I point it. they might be good for the average Honda or Nissan grocery-getter but don't put them on a decent handling car and expect it to feel right.
I believe this are decide tires would have hoped for better traction but I am driving a 350 hp car.
I have put these tires to the test in all conditions. Its what you would expect of an all season, common name regular tire. Nothing special. I have them on my rear tires on my FW drive Fiesta ST. My 'idk what brand they are' tires on the front lasted 10k miles and the Falken tires are still going strong. Amazingly, I had sidewall damage the tire held together for thousands of miles. It was scary, and stupid, but the tire was a champion. Id suggest these tires. Easy choice to make. If I did some research, I bet I could find a better tire for the price. Im lazy, so these tires are what I chose.
Good tires for the price. I have had the tires in all weather on my civic, and although they are not the best winter tire(be it not made for it) it does the job it was designed to do. It dissipates water very well to allow for wet road handling, but the compound to me is soft enough for grip in the dry. I have not noticed any "road noise" as described above by others, but maybe it is the difference in performance sought in the purchase. I would recommend these tires for someone on a budget thats looking for something better than a kuhmo
I agree with the review regarding ride and noise. My dealer replaced the OEM Kumhos on my Veloster with these. Took it back a few days later convinced they were not balanced correctly. Dealer said "Nope they're just harder than the Kumhos." Only driven 2k on them but show no wear at all. Kumhos were shot after 19k. They handle wet and dry well. Terrible in snow but I wasn't expecting much and my Honda Element takes most winter duties. I'm not a complainer when it comes to road noise. Wouldn't drive an Element if road noise bothered me. I'm also not expecting a Lexus like ride in a Hyundai with 40 series 18's. But these are a loud hard riding tire.
Tires are relatively new. No comment for wet handling, winter traction, and tread life,haven't experienced those uses yet. Tires louder on very smooth surface, when heard, have the whining out of round sound. Ride like out of balanced, I took them back to Munro and their only comment was that they are a harder riding tire, should not have had the tires to be mounted at a muffler repair,eh? Previous tires were Goodyear Eagle GT, the Falkens are much less expensive and it seems the quality is also.
Too soon to give an honest opinion. So far, so good.
I was really impressed by Simple Tire. I had the tires shipped to me 1 day after my late night order. As for the Falken ZE950 tires, I like them, granted I have only put roughly 1,000 miles on them since installation, they do have great grip, I was taken back on how good the wet performance is.These Falken's just grip and go. My Sentra seems to float along the road with great contact and very minimal noise. I would recommend SimpleTire.com and plan on using them for future purchases & I would recommend the Falken Ziex ZE950 tires for anyone looking for a great all around tire at a great price
I just purchased these tires. I replaced the Bridgestone Potenza Re 040. The effect was immediate. The ride was much improved, no crashing over lips and ruts. I upsized the front tires so handling is a little different as I lessened the stagger between front and rear. The car comes with wider, lower profile and different diameter front to rear.... Very responsive for not being broken in. Can't wait to try them in the rains of Central Florida. Dont know yet about wet, tread life or snow.
