    All Season

    The ESPIA EPZ, Falken’s latest addition to the winter tire line up. It provides superb traction even in the harshest weather conditions. Specially designed canyon sipes and a fiberglassreinforced rubber compound allow the EPZ to “claw” the roughness of ice and stubbornness of snow in a non-studded alternative to the traditional winter tire. The new ESPIA EPZ is the perfect choice capable of conquering mother nature at her worst.

    • Offering both an “ice face” and “snow face,” through a Falken-patented dual tread pattern, which provides for a wider center tread and expanded lateral shoulder area grooves, improving overall grip on snow and ice.
    • Siping inside the block is composed of complex zigzag bodies which are angled and deep to allow the tread to flex and grab additional traction in every winter condition
    • An antiaging agent continues to seep from the base tread to fight ultra violet rays, as well as repeated bending. This enables the tire to work better, by controlling aging and maintaining the fundamental functions of a tire.

    I have a Mercury Grand Marquis and recently was in a bind when a set of summer tires that were no longer in production had a fatel blow out in one . Since I couldn't get a replacement under my tire warranty I was in a bind and the tire dealer . I was having terrible traction problems in the first 5 inch snow of the year . With the space saver spare on I was afraid to even go to Wally World 30 miles away and fight it out for a replacement set for at least one axel you can't just mismatch tires on them and they wanted to give me one mismatched tire . So I bought just two of these for the rear of my car with a extra rim so I had these mounted on their own set and was rid of that space saver donut . I absolutely love them . They may not be the best if the first two negative reviewers are right but they work . I have at least double the grip in snow and ice . I have never used any other of these 45 degree and under tires so I can't compare to anything but my summer touring all season tires and the old mud and snows used pre 1995 . I am very happy . Considering buying two more rims for my car and running 4 of them but truly my car is moving through snow and ice at least 300% better and I am in control . Simple feathering the gas and the tires hook up and do not spin once underway . Tires are expensive now a days but where I was regretting having to be in a position to buy them I am sorry I didn't get them sooner . It took me a long time before I tried these new cold temperature super sticky tires . I am very pleased and have no problems recommending them though I have limited miles . The difference is amazing over the all seasons I had ( Bridgestone Turanzas ) on the rear before even with 2 still on the front . God Bless .

    These are a step up from all seasons but there are better tires out there. They are just 'ok' standing start ice traction is poor even starting in second gear, they cannot handle much deep snow, they tend to hydroplane on slush easily and worst of all they tend to let go very easy in the corners. The other day going around a corner at 35 kmh with light slush my back end tried to spin around on me. Good thing for the stability control on my Sonata. Tread wear is almost nil in 3 years and they're also pretty quiet. But this is my last year with these, going to move up to a higher quality tire. These just don't bite hard enough into the snow/slush just on their outer edges they seem too. The centre of my tire tracks is almost smooth, no tread bites. Hence the squirreliness on slush,ice they're just floating on top. Would not buy again or recommend.

    The first question people might ask is why the low rating for Wet and Snow? Because the performance of this tire is a jekyll and hyde story. On ice these tires are pretty good. On snow they work ok in a straight line but they will let go suddenly in the corners, and at a much lower speed than the 3 other winter tires I have used in the past 4 years on various car. Together the snap give away nature plus the lower limits means it will likely catch you by surprise. On wet they have little grip on braking. It can be scary. Overall I am recommending people buy other tires. This one can put you on a river of excrement without a mode of propulsion. These are no longer on my car. The replacement X-ice 2 really make me realize how bad the EPZs were. Don't take my word alone though.. there are some European and Japanese reviews of this tire and over all they agree with what I said above.

    From Montreal, Qc In the past I had blizzaks, Gislaved, toyo and Gislaved and trust me the Espia`s impressed me so fare, never got stuck in snow & even if it slips on ice it definetly handles the ice the best was it can! No regrets, they are worth every penny invested, love them...
