 Falken Ziex ZE950 AS

After trying dozens of tires on my Probe GT (385HP), these ZE950's are fantastic. The only tires that were better (on the track) were the Sumitomo Z Ultimate Summer. The Falken tires are great on dry pavement, and do just as well in light snow (up to 3"). My only reservations are that they are starting to have hydroplaning issues in hard corners during heavy rain and they are very stiff (hard on my suspension). It's not bad, but you still feel a little slide and front-end/rear-end slip, and hitting a tiny pothole feels (and sounds) like you drove into a 10" ditch. So far these have been great on tread-wear, and I expect to see 60K+ easily. I like them so well that I've just put a set on my "everyday" '93 Probe SE (225/50-16), and I must say after only 500 miles, the 50-series ride much quieter and aren't as stiff feeling on bad roads, but still handle the corners like Velcro... so far. Oh, and I will add that my MPG on the big V6 went from 24 to 27 after mounting these tires... and I only hope that the MPG on my 4-cyl will see the same increase... from 36 to hopefully breaking 40!!
