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!!

Given 74% (breakdown) while driving a Mazda MX5 (225/45 R17) on track for 800 average miles
I have 4 on my MX5 mk1 on 14" standard rims.
They squeal a lot when pushed but still grip well. Seem to take a bit of warming up so last time out I went down to 22 psi cold.
Wear was more noticeable at Cadwell than Mallory.
A little bit skittish on the road in the wet although I have track stiff suspension so not necessarily the tyres fault.

I think they're excellent value for money particularly on standard rims.

First 10.000KM All good - Kind of perfect
The price is really good compared to other brands .
The ride is very pleasant - But after 30.000 KM Year after year The tire out of tread .
The tires I buy are manufactured in Thailand .

So far so good .

Given 77% (breakdown) while driving a Kia Motors Pro ceed (215/45 R17 V) on a combination of roads for 19,000 spirited miles
Its the second car of the family i get the 914s...
On mine ,they lasted (they are still on...) 35K km....the first 25K km they were great!
Absolutely magnificent in dry conditions
-they followed a set of falken fk 451,a set of yokohama s drive(worst tyre ever) and one of barum bravuris 2...the 914 outperformed all of them easily...great tyre on dry conditions even when pushed...the car is often driven to its limits when dry,in fast tight roads with hairpin turns
When wet the tyres are also pretty good...especially when in their prime and if you are careful with the midterm back and front change of the tyres,the handle nice and the stop accurately...no aquaplanning at all...
But...after 25K the change their behavior a bit and you start to notice a change in thw wet ...they slip a bit and you should be more careful than before....after 30K they need to be replaced

Their lifetime is around 30K kms with a playful driving....
My father who drives like a 60yo...got them replaced at 60K kms (2.5years) with no problem at all...

The final verdict is that its a great tyre...it gives you a sense of security and it comes in great price too...i would buy it again if the price wont go up like its heard
