They are good tyre.

published

Lol too many holden redneck reviews on here. But for my polo gtr they were fantastic for 17"s and good in the wet.if you morons are running more than 18" then expect to pay $250plus for A tyre, don't take a stab at at tyre that's designed for hatches and medium sized cars with rims 18" or under!!

Purchased in March 2019.

Only dry weather tyres

published

Good on dry weather ,poor traction on wet from stand still when is wet they Felt like they’re made of plastic could not get traction ,tyres last me only 25000 km not even two years,and I could not wait to get them replaced personally I would not recommend them ,not buying them never again

Garbage tyres (don’t do it)

published

Feel every bump on road, barely has traction in wet, locks up and basically skates all over when turning at low speed and low throttle. Seriously dangerous tyres.
19/245/40 fitted to an SSV wagon. Pirellis dragons on prior felt like glue compared to these. Do not put them on your car you will regret it I promise.

ZE912 equals Great Value on a heavy SUV

published

I'm onto my third set of 245/50/R20 Falken ZE912's on my Mazda CX9 Luxury. These tyres just keep doing a great job on a 2 tonne Mazda CX9. They'll do 50,000 to 60,000km with regular rotation, alignment and balancing at 10,000km intervals. Will even drive the car effortlessly through soft dry sand with the family loaded on-board and air pressures dropped to 12psi... ON A 20 INCH RIM!!. Pump them back up before hitting the bitumen again and they just keep on keeping on.
Replaced the noisy and ridiculously expensive OEM Bridgestone tyres on the CX9 with these ZE912's and haven't looked back. Will do it again too.

Value for money,Perfect and smooth drive

published

Had tried three different brands in last four years ,non last even 30000 KMs,just fitted Falken and drive to snow and great alpine,fantastic grip,no vibration,smooth drive.No vibration even at 110 speed,drive on snow without chain. My previous tyre was making vibrations over 100 speed. I would definitely recommend Falken .Reasonable price with better performance.

The only tyre money for value

published

I have found these tyre fitted to my Holden to be exceptional in the wet and dry. Having an alignment every 8 months to keep it in check to extend the life of the tyre. I'm on my 5th set of Falkens tyres. I would highly recommend these tyres compared to the more expensive brands.

Great tyres, never had any issue!

published

It must depend on the car with all the complaining about tyre wear, I have a 2010 VE Commodore with 245/45R18's and have done over 50000km in 3 years (never rotated) on them and they weren't brand new when I bought the car. Due to be replaced now, but even when worn absolutely great grip in wet & dry conditions. Smooth and quiet in all conditions, never felt like they were losing traction on the road no matter how hard you push them.

Tire wear is very poor

published

I'm a normal road driver but these tires 245/55/R19 ZE912 for a 2008 Kruger wear very quickly. 20,000 kms and that's just about it. Running at 38 psi. Too much wear on the edges. Upside, super quite, soft ride and grippy in the dry. Seriously smelly rubber when new. Won't buy again.

Hate! I Want My Old Ones Back!

published

I wish I could take back my old 5-year-old tires and trade them for this brand. I also had an alignment done at the time of the installation of the new tires, so these sliding in wet conditions such as rain or snow is not due to the alignment; additionally I took my car in to the dealer because it's under warranty and they stated there's nothing wrong with the suspension, the issues with handling in wet conditions is due to the quality of the tires I chose.

Great tyres. Quiet, handles well.

published

I have a 2010 Outback and have had these for 18 months now fitted with 225/60/17 99H. Purchased from Bob Jane $212 each. They are now 32,000 old and still plenty of tread left. I keep them at 38 psi. Handles well in the wet, although all wheel drive helps there as well. Not too noisy on the road. I have done all onroad driving, short and long distances and haven't felt a problem. I would purchase these again.

Great tyre, would recommend.

published

Have had my 215/65/15 on my 80s supra, the rears get treated terribly due to the car having over 350hp, and I've done more than 30,000 kms now, no abnormal wear, looks like I have heaps of tread to go still. people complaining about understeer have poorly set-up cars with worn and/or stock suspension...I have so much mechanical grip. I paid about $130ea, much more than that and you are being ripped off by ol' mate bob jane.

Great value good grip but quick wear

published

I'm not sure what some of the reviewers are expecting or why they think the grip is poor, unless they are running way off tyre pressures.
I have a modified turbo sports car which I drive sensibly on road and like a madman on track.
Grip is good and predictable wet or dry under normal driving, for track, you need to warm them up first, but then still good and predictable.
They do tend to wear quite quickly compared to other, more expensive tyres I've used.
But at the price I am very happy with them.

Wore out too fast

published

I am a conservative driver and these tyres only lasted 20,000kms, very disappointed as they weren't particularly cheap at $180 each. I will not buy them again.

Average tyre regarding wear

published

Only complaint is they wear quickly - 23000 ks and they're stuffed and I'm a very conservative driver and travel long distances on highways observing all speed limits

Lasted only 20,00kms!

published

The worst tyre I've ever owned, lasted less than 20,000kms, waste of $200. Handling was good and the road noise was at the minimum but they wear off like no other, so stay away. Suggest you invest into something else, otherwise you will spend ever cent on tyres. These are known to be rubbish.

Can't fault them

published

I bought these as replacement for Potenzas on my SV6 and the first 2000km was in wet & dry, sealed and gravel around Tassie for 2 weeks. They were most impressive for grip in the bucketing rain we had on the east coast for 2 days and the ride & handling was better than with the Bridgstones, well they were worn out. I have completed about 43000km doing suburban and country driving and they appear to be good for another 25000kms. I regularly have them balanced and rotated and I would certainly recommend these tyres from my experience. I would / will buy them again.

Hi, I have a 2013 Kia Sorento and I'm pretty much in a similar situation to you. The owner of the local Bob Jane has these on his Sorento and swears by them. I'm getting them fitted next week.
