Top Falken ZE914 Review

Given 93% (breakdown) while driving a Skoda Fabia Scout 1.6 tdi (205/45 R16) on a combination of roads for 30,000 spirited miles
I've just ordered my 3rd set of Falkens for my car.
I drive approx. 1000 miles a week commuting from Cornwall to Hampshire.
the front set has lasted 30k miles in all weathers & everything from motorway to Cornish lanes. (rears have lasted over 60k but car is FWD)
they are down to the minimum now (1.7mm) and only now am I loosing confidence in them on the wet icy roads. I do drive hard and have every confidence in them hence why I change them I've gone for another set.

if they did motorbike tyres I'd be tempted to fit them to my CBF1000 as well!!

BMW (225/40 R18 W) on mostly country roads for 12,000 average miles
Bought these due to the relative good reviews. No complains about the costs and wear, they are ok. They fall a bit small around my 18" rims, the Vredestein Sessantas stuck out a bit more so curbs are a real pain when parking.
Biggest complain is the tyre cupping on the front. Car is perfect alignet, been checked twice. Also the suspension components are ok. Rear 255/35 ZR 18 are still ok. Both tires have still lots of tread left, but the noise is awfull so I will change the fronts with Michelins next summer.

Given 51% (breakdown) while driving a Honda S2000 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 2,000 spirited miles
Had that tyre on the rear of my S2000 and it has a very stiff side wall but doesn't grip very well in wet is well I'll be kind let's say tricky. No point of talking comfort hasn't got any. I see it working maybe with heavier car but not with light sports one's.

Given 36% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Fiesta (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 6,000 spirited miles
Dreadful tyre.

No good at all on powerful FWD cars. No grip in the wet, and let go suddenly in the dry. At best they have far too much understeer. They are not a performance tyre, they are made of wood and belong on family cars.

Down to the markers after 6k (front) and I'm not sorry. Replacing with Michelin PS3s, which I should have bought to start with.
