I was surfin' for Falken ZE-512 info & ended up here.
The tire chart copied from the November '03 Consumer Report is wrong. Find a copy at the library & you'll see the "overall performance" red line for the Falken ze-512 extends beyond the Bridgestone Potenza.
I just ordered four (4) 225/45/17's from www.vulcantire.com
for $89 ea. Can't touch a ContiExtreme or Sumi HTR+ for that price.
discounttiredirect.com features free shipping which, depending on where you live, may work to your advantage but vulcantire beats 'em.
If you're looking for crazy-azz handling at the limit, then you should look elsewhere but it sounds like these tires don't have a weakness aside from the
360 UTQG rating.
I'm a car crazy helpin' out other car crazies.
