Falken Ziex CT60 AS Review

The Ziex CT60 AS is a tire that has been custom made by Falken to meet the needs of modern crossovers and their owners, from excellent traction in inclement weather to long life.

PROS

  • Wet weather grip
  • Solid tread life
  • Reasonable price
  • Good selection of sizes
  • Road hazard warranty

CONS

  • Tread life could be a bit longer

First up, let’s talk about traction. The silica-infused tread compound offers increased grip in the wet without compromising dry performance or long life. The three center tread rows also feature unique angled sections designed specifically for added wet and wintry grip.

And speaking of winter, additional features can be found on the shoulder tread sections to help. Noticeable are the zig-zag sipes, which work to grip snow and add some level of all-season capability when the white stuff starts falling.

Overall, this tire gets excellent marks for its wet weather grip, particularly under braking.

The entire tire is also engineered to last a long time and does come with a solid 65,000 mile tread life warranty. Some tires do deliver more, but generally they are more expensive.

Those external tread blocks are also robust and wear slowly, maintaining the high level of all-season traction for years to come.

These same shoulder sections are also engineered to put plenty of rubber in contact with the road while flexing very little, adding cornering grip for high-riding crossovers, as well as nimble steering feel.
