    Default Falken ze912 vs 452's

    Anyone had both? What do they think of them? I have the 452's atm and have no problems with them at all, but have never tried the 912's

    Any thoughts?

    only had the 912's as I needed XL on my old 3.0. As Mrk said, very good grip wet & dry and very quiet. Some on here that don't need XL rated tyres complained that they were a little "hard/harsh" but on the 3.0 they were very good.

    What do you think of the 452's?

    I don't have any problems at all with them, a little soft so they wear fairly quickly but that could also be my driving.

    As they are similar prices I was wondering what people thought of the 912. Just a bit odd that one company do two different tyres for the same price.

    Apparently, Falken class the 452's as "Ultra High Performance Summer" tyres & the 912's as "Premium Touring Summer" tyres. User reviews rate the 452's higher than the 912's in all areas but comfort & marginally better wear.

    Personally, I couldn't be happier with my 452's.

    I have had 912s on for quite a while, these are extra load tyres, and you can feel they give a harsher ride what ever pressure is in them,they are a very good motorway tyre though. they are also directional tyres, good grip wet or dry, they don't seem to work very well when it is very cold say,, under 5 degrees, they have lasted quite well, backs are on 5 mil at aprox 17,000 miles, fronts aprox 13,000miles and are on 4 mil, they have worn very even all over, There is a very slight hummm now coming from the rear, I was told these tyres would do this as they start to wear, I shall look to other tyres when due for a change but as I get 215/55/16 for £69 fitted can find nothing else at the moment in this price range to compair, my advice stick with the 452s, rgds ANT.

    The 452's are indeed a softer compound and have greater stability in high speed cornering and handling, the Ziex 912's are intended for higher performance family type cars the extra weight and such they wear better.

    According to the tyre garage guys I know

    Fancy sharing where you get them from for 69 squidly? The best I can do down here in the South is £87 at the mo, want the 452's but having job finding somewhere that does them. Quite fancy the Michellin as well but need a deeper pocket!
