    Default Falken ZE912 First Impressions

    After much review reading and umming and arring, I deceided on four new Falken ZE912'S for my 18" snowflakes.

    The wheels were originally on a Zafira VXR so they were fitted with 225/45/18'S. I decided to go for 235/40/18's which are the correct size for the Vectra.

    I'm well impressed with them, got four done with four wheel laser allignment for £387 at my Vauxhall dealer. I replaced sport contact 2'S with these tyres and so far I am well impressed, very quiet and handle great.

    To sum up I reckon this latest offering from Falken is great for a budget tyre. Budget price but top end perfromance!

    Highly recommended if you are on a budget, which many of us are when it comes to tyres.

    Falken tyres are about the longest lasting budget tyre I can buy for my work van.

    Wouldn't hesitate buying them for the Vectra.

    I have had previous bad experiences with Falkens three or four years ago. I vowed then I wouldn't have them again but after reading plenty of reviews I took a gamble.

    Did you try the 912'S?

    So far very pleased with them.

    Fully fitted at your door for £147.24 from event-tyres Steve. My mate used them for two the other week, he was well impressed by them.

    Thinking back it was 512's or FK452's I had fitted, so maybe the 912's will be better.

    Currently need two tyres as my GSD3's are goosed and will probably get Kumho KU31's.

    512's are soft, 4k on the front of my Mum's Mazda 2 and they're ****ed. Though it does scrub the inside of the tyres (it's the Fiesta gubbins at work there).
