The Falken Ziex ZE950 A/S is the eventual successor to their best-selling Ziex ZE-912. Following up their prior success would be no easy task and so Falken has responded by creating an M+S rated UHP all season radial boasting numerous improvements in both tread design and compound formulation. It is these improvements which have led to substantial increases in both winter traction and tread life over the previous generation. At the material level, the Ziex ZE950 is formulated with an all-new proprietary silica-based compound (dubbed DRT for Dynamic Range Technology) which allows the tread to remain pliable in colder temperatures. It is this flexibility which helps it to maintain its grip and handling performance across a wide range of driving conditions. At the design level, you can't help but notice the striking asymmetric tread pattern with multiple high-volume circumferential grooves. In addition to providing superior wet traction with minimal hydroplaning, it also allows for free rotation - meaning there are more rotation pattern options than there would be with a directional tread.
