    Falken Ziex ZE 912 vs 502

    I'm debating between buying
    1) Falken Ziex ZE-912
    or
    2) Falken Ziex ZE-502

    Will be purchasing 245/50 r16 (The original 235/55 r16s are a pain to find cheap)

    Which tire will perform better and last longer (better bang for the buck)?

    I drive a 2002 V6 Firebird with 16' rims and live in Los Angeles, CA. Dry roads almost all year around and will be driving on the freeway 2 days a week for about 1 hr each day.
    (Driving on the weekends but not much).

    If there's anything else you need to know, let me know! Thanks!

    Either will perform well as long as you rotate/balance every 5-7 thousand miles and you have your car aligned. If you don't plan to race the car, then either tire would be good for you.

    I have Falkens on our car and have found that you have to run lower air pressures or the center is prone to wear.

    Let me know how you like them. I'm thinking about the Falken Ziex ZE-502
    tires and would like to hear from someone who has tried them.
