Had 4 new Falken Ziex ZE-912s fitted the other day and am very happy with them - big improvement in terms of road noise and ride comfort (16"). They're very highly rated tyres in terms of value for money as an all rounder.

Size I went for was 205/50 R16 to replace my horrible 195/55 Goodyear runflats, which were very worn and extremely noisy!

I paid £242 fitted for all four - which I think is a good deal. Bought Mail order from Blackcircles.com, arrived next morning, and I got them fitted by my local garage for £10 a wheel.

Can't comment yet on grip (not scrubbed in fully, but they do feel very grippy so far) nor wear (though treadwear rating is 380, which is quite good).

If you're considering changing from runflats to normal tyres - just DO IT - it's a huge improvement.

I have ZE-512's and was thinking of the ZE-912's when they need replacing so will be interested in how you get with them longer term.
