If you like a tire that’s sporty, comfortable, and has long wear characteristics, you can’t go wrong with the Falken Ziex ZE950 A/S. This is a proper high-performance all-season tire designed for sporty sedans, sports coupes, and crossover vehicles. But since Falken is also promising a comfortable and quiet ride, the Ziex ZE950 A/S can also be considered a hybrid touring high-performance tire.
The Falken Sincera SN250 is classified as an all-season performance touring tire. This means it performs well in wet, dry, and snowy weather while giving your vehicle class-leading comfort. Hybrid tires are the all the rage these days. If tire makers want to sell well, the tires will have to be equipped with many features and shared capabilities. It’s not enough the tire should have high levels of wet and dry grip, but the rubber should be pliable enough to remain comfortable while having a longer tread life.
It’s always fun testing a performance tire. In most cases, the difference between all-season and performance tires are similar to night and day. That’s what it felt as I crafted this Falken Azenis FK450 review. From the very start, the Azenis FK450 felt sportier than a humdrum set of general purpose touring tires.
But that’s expected given the capabilities of the Falken Azenis FK450. It is designed to offer uncompromised all season performance in ultra-high performance driving. With that being said, this an excellent choice for premium sport coupes, old school and modern muscle cars, and sporting European/American sedans.
The OHTSU FP0612 A/S is designed for compact sedans, sports coupes, small crossovers, and family minivans. What makes the OHTSU FP0612 A/S unique is the hybrid construction. It may be considered a proper all-season tire, but it also happens to have the good characteristics of a performance touring tire.
What this means is a tire that rolls silently and comfortably while still enhancing handling and stability. In my book, the OHTSU FP0612 A/S is already a winner given the affordable price. In this review, I’ll dig deeper in to what makes this tire special and why it remains a solid choice for your vehicle.
