Questions and Answers for the Falken ZIEX ZE310 EcoRun

2018-12-31 - Iím looking to replace a set of bridgestones which came with my Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo from new. It seems to be an awkward tyre size at 215/40/17. I was hoping for all seasons, but thereís only a choice of 2. So I decided on summer tyres. Iíve sort of narrowed it down to the Falken ZIEX ZE310 and the Hankook Ventus Prime 3. Which would you recommend ?

Both are excellent tyres, getting great reviews. The Hankook might have the edge in wear, but overall they're very similar tyres.

2019-08-05 - Is the Falken ZIEX ZE310 EcoRun suitable for a SUV 4x4 which is only used on road? My car is a 2014 ford Kuga 2.0 titanium powershift. 235 x 55 R17 tyres

As long as you meet the load index required by your SUV, there's no reason not to use the ZE310.

2019-09-18 - I have a Golf 7 1.4TSi 122BHP with 205/55 X16 German OEM Dunlop Blue Response tyres. These are internally noisy and have very soft sidewalls leading to sloppy handling. I am proposing to chage them to other 205/55 X16V tyres. Falken ZE310, Hankook Prime 3 K125 and Bridgestone T005 have been suggested as possible replacements. The Falkens have a very low external noise performance but I not convinced that this is a reliable guide to the internal noise. I had a very bad expeiuence with German OEM Dunlop tyres on a new BMW 316i in the past and I wonder if the Blue Response tyres are of the same ilk? i.e. poor OEM tyres. Internal noise & wet grip are the most important parameters for the replacements and I am willing to trade off ride comfort with slightly stiffer sidewalls. Any comments you have would be much appreciated. Many thanks for the most helpful web site.

Unfortunately all modern tyres have soft sidewalls as it reduces rolling resistance. You are correct in thinking there isn't necessarily a correlation between external and internal noise, but there is often a link. I have no personal experience with the ZE310 but I have seen tests note it's a good handling tyre for its class, so maybe worth a try! One thing worth remembering is that stiffer sidewalls will transmit more vibration through to the chassis increasing internal noise.

Given 83% while driving a Saab Automobile 9 3 SE Turbo (195/65 R15 V) on mostly country roads for 500 spirited miles
I found the tyres really good, for what they are. The feel is as you expect from a 65 profile sidewall, but I was surprised by how well they handled the wet. Really solid grip, even in very heavy rain. Bought them thinking they would be a set of decent "budget" tyres, but was very surprised at how well they handled compared to other more expensive tyres I've tried out.

Given 83% while driving a Hyundai i30 (205/55 R16 H) on a combination of roads for 5,000 easy going miles
Very good given the money spent. Seem very stable and comfortable at the same time, giving good handling especially in the wet. Dry handling seems to need a better tarmac to shine, still good enough in all conditions. High speed on motorways is fine, fast turns might slip on average asphalt. They seem a little 'heavy', but all in all they are great for what you pay. Recommended, for sure!

Given 79% while driving a SEAT Toledo (205/50 R16 W) on mostly town for 6,000 easy going miles
Positives: Grip both on dry and wet is superb. Especially on wet. These tyres inspire confidence. When you are driving it feels like there is a huge invisible hand pressing the car down and the road feedback is phenomenal. Low wear. And of course the price. Value for money indeed. Negatives: High fuel consumption. I quess that superb grip comes at a price. Noise levels were also elevated. And lastly comfort. These tyres provide a firm ride. My car has also a firm suspension and together made the ride uncomfortable. I drive 95% in the city on terrible roads, full of bumps and potholes, so i changed them to continentals ecocontact 6 which did provide a more comfortable ride, much better fuel efficiency and low noise. But the feedback is terrible and nowhere near the Falkens. So i would not buy again. But if i drove frequent long journeys, in twisty roads or long distances then i would pick the falkens again.
