Falken Ziex ZE914 EcoRun



Description

The ZE914 EcoRun is the latest edition to the ZIEX family of tires, and Falken's first Passenger Car tire under the EcoRun badge. The EcoRun badge is reserved for Falken tires developed with optimized fuel efficiency. Tests have shown the ZIEX ZE914 EcoRun has 20% less rolling resistance than the ZIEX ZE912.

  • Falken's PCR LRR (Low Rolling Resistance) Compound technology is engineered to maximize fuel efficiency. The PCR LRR compound allows the tire to roll using less energy than a conventional tire would in the same distance. This translates into savings at the gas pump, as the tire requires less fuel to maintain it's momentum.
  • A Silica Enriched Compound along with 4 circumferential grooves and an asymmetric tread pattern allows for hydroplane resistance for maximum wet traction.
  • Optimized Slot and Sipe placement maintains tread block rigidity in some places, while providing softness in others . In essence, the tread is designed for optimal comfort and handling.

What is good?
Dry Performance
Price/Quality
Wet Performance
Quiet for a tyre with some performance aspirations. Useful upgrade in wet and dry performance and handling compared to a good "touring tyre". Quite a lot of squeal when pushed in the dry, with progressive breakaway. Wearing well and evenly.
What is bad?
Comfort
Bump thump (ride) significantly worse than touring tyres.  More like that of a high performance tyre, than a "mild" performance tyre that this is.
Comments
Great price without compromise in quality.  I didn't find any change in apparent rolling resistance compared to my previous set of Bridgestone eco touring tyres, so I think it's OK in this respect.
