Honda Civic 1.4 100PS FK1 Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Falken ZIEX ZE914 EcoRun given 90% (225-50-16-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 37000 spirited miles
Back in 2013, I decided to try a set of 4 tyres ZIEX914 225/50/16 W XL (extra load) for sporty driving. Very few reviews existed at that time but the price was much lower than premium brands. I replaced these tyres after 6 years with 60,000 km and I can say for sure that these tyres are excellent for sporty driving due to the combination of stiff sidewall and sticky rubber. With these tyres I could easily find the limits of my civic when taking turns at high speed without losing steering control at all. The only downside of these tyres is the absolute lack of comfort which can be a deal-breaker for relaxed-style drivers.

Now I have chosen Federal Evoluzion ST-1 because of discounted price and nice sporty performance.
In the short-run I am very satisfied but I have yet to discover their long-run performance.
I wish they keep up with the Falkens...

Nice sporty tyre at a much lower price than premium brands. Excellent dry performance and nice cornering with the XL (extra load) Feds. Wet performance and wear seem OK for now but with low mileage. My previous tyres were the excellent Falken ZE914, and now the Feds seem to have similar grip and cornering, a bit lower handling, but they are more comfortable and quite with better sporty look.
