The ZIEX ZE914 ECORUN is a hybrid vehicle tire with the cost saving fuel efficiency of a Low Rolling Resistance Compound, engineered with performance in mind. This tire features an asymmetric tread pattern with four straight wide circumferential grooves for hydroplane resistance along with a dual high rigidity rib construction, allowing good wet and dry braking stability. Slots and sipes can be found throughout the tire, optimized for even tread wear with a comfortable ride while providing additional traction. With a size list ranging from 15-inch to 18-inch and speed ratings of H, V and W, the ZE914 ECORUN is a great tire for enthusiasts looking to save at the pump.
Is engineered for optimal Low Rolling Resistance, meaning this tire is capable of traveling further distances using less fuel.
Provide even wear performance.
FOUR WIDE CIRCUMFERENTIAL GROOVES
For hydroplane resistance and stability in wet conditions.
SHOULDER RIB RIGIDITY
Optimizes both wet and dry handling stability especially at high speeds.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

05.01.2021fromJohn Very happy with the tyres - excellent grip in wet or dry conditions. Also wearing well and reasonably quiet.
20.12.2020fromRichard Very good tyre, good in wet and dry. Responsive when given high demand.
16.12.2020fromSimon Thompson I would not recommend these for any spirited driving. Comfort and noise are fine, but lack of grip in both dry and wet conditions.
24.09.2020fromRichard This Falken tyre joined one we already had which was removed from the front axle when a pair of all weather tyres were fitted. The Falken pair have now replaced two top manufacture premium items that had completed 42,000 kms on the rear axle and were evenly worn. We have noticed no difference in performance, noise or economy across all of the star ratings mentioned and so would recommend them from our experience in a non drive rear axle fitment.
