New Falken Tires

Well it's time, after 19,000 miles it's time to replace the PZeros. I have decided to go with Falken Pro G4 A/S tires. Can get them at a reasonable price and they are an all season tire. Since this car is just used for cruising I don't feel the need to buy a summer only tire. This car never sees snow, but I am hoping for more miles out of these. Will post up a review when I get them mounted on the car.

I just put these same tires on my SS vert and i love them. Granted, they are not a performance tire but found they perform very well. I replaced my Pirelli Zeros and wish i would have done it sooner. The Pirelli's, in my opinion, are junk and you're just paying for the name and people think they're sexy. I played a little with the Falkens and they barked at me a little when i punched it while cornering, but they never broke loose. The Falkens are soooooo much more smoother than the Zeros and they respond very well. The tread is pretty aggressive but they look nice with the stock rims. Got mine at Discount Tire for $860, with all the bells and whistles....and they have a 45k warranty, only got 22k out of the Zeros. Ive had just about every brand out there and these rank right up there with the big boys, in my honest opinion.

Thumbs up Awesome information!

Will ya'll please share your long term reviews?
I'm especially interested in knowing how they perform in occasional spirited driving & rain/light snow conditions.
Also, I'm wondering if they have the rim protector feature.

I went with these a couple of months ago after replacing my p-zeros on my SS after about 32,00 miles.

So far these have been great tires. The ride is much smoother and a lot quieter. Just recently started driving it in cold/rain and handling has been excellent. I tried a little spirited driving in these conditions and traction and control was great.

I ended up getting the Falken Pro G4 A/S tires when I bought new wheels. I immediately noticed the smoother (more pleasant) ride. The grip in wet conditions instills much more confidence than the OEM (summer) tires. I live in the Northwest & drive the car year round, so it's an important feature in these parts. While there's slightly less grip in a quick takeoff during the summer, the difference is negligible & certainly livable for non-track use.
