no, they're not too bad, but i still think it woulda been better to go with the G009s online.

How much they charging you for the falkens?

Yeah right, at $212 a piece, and beside mine doesn't spin the wheels enough to make enough smoke to be worth it

Default Falken ZE 912

I have a 2000 Park Avenue and would like to know the opinions on the Falken ZE 912 tires. I was interested in the ZE 512, but locally the 912'* are available.

The price I found is 115 each, includes mounting, balancing, road hazzard, nitrogen inflated, etc.. so, i figure 460 out the door...plus tax of course. I have an appointment in a couple hours, but I thought I'd visit the ol' Bonne Gang for some input.

Dont go with the falkens, nothing but garbage. I should know, we sell them at work.

best bang for the buck are the goodyear assurance tripletreads or the michelin weatherwise 2

The last post before I revived this thread, was not even 2 months ago, so i assume this isn't an old thread at all.

As for the tires, I should have posted before I was in dire need of tires, but I posted a couple hours before my appointment.

I am still very curious to hear what others have to say about the 512'* as well as the 912'*. I bought a set of 4 912'* yesterday, and I really like them, so far. We are going to experience rain and/or snow all this week, so I should really get the chance to test them out.

My old tires were not shaped like a circle, as my new ones are. That'* always a plus.

Anyone have any opinions on nitrogen filled tires? Where I bought my tires, they unflate them with nitrogen, which is supposed to be better than air. I read some stuff online about it, but aside from all the theories, has anyone noticed a difference running nitrogen instead of air?


Thanks again for any and all help.

It'* actually borderline. After a couple months, the threads are considered old and shouldn't be revived.

We'll let this one go, but keep that in mind for future reference.

I have no idea why this is such an important issue, but I don't post a lot and I don't have time to keep up with the little quirky changes or rules that may apply. I see no harm in asking a question in a thread that'* not old.....imo.... Oddly, when posting new threads, on this and other forums, i have seen too often, folks replying with.. use the search option. I used that option, and added to a recent subject only to have more drama about an old thread, and not a lot of replies to the actual question at hand.


I am almost insulted by the term..... we'll let this one go..... By all means, if you think i did something wrong, don't let it go. do whatever you do when someone is so offensive, they'd ask a question on a vintage 2 month old....thread.. sheesh..


Got an opinion on the tires? never mind. I don't really care at this point...
