    "Falken Tire Prepares To Launch All-New MEGA LINE ZIEX ZE950 A/S Successor To Acclaimed ZIEX ZE912"

    A group of us were just discussing this very topic in North Carolina this past week. I think we will be hard pressed to find another tire that offers all the Falken offers for the money. Dang it!

    Well, guess I better get another order in for some of the remaining 912's. Not sure what I will run next.

      This is terrible news! Perhaps switch to the NRF Yoko even though it doesn't have a rim protector.

            Nothing wrong with the Michelin.

              Even though I also like the Michelin, it just does not hold up to the way these guys run!

            Agree with bugs zedi, the Alpin isn't the best choice for riders who are more performance minded.

              I have a Falcon ZIEZ ZE-950 185-55-16 on my spare wheel right now. I rode it as long as I could stand the odd handling. I will probably it as a bon fire starter. But, maybe that is just me. I was not fond of the Alpin either. The Alpin was fine for touring and general puttering about, but put it hard into a corner and it seemed to load-up and then buckle over; sort of side step just when you don't want such.

                Rooster, where are you located? Yes, we have heard some not-so-good news regarding the ZE-950 when it is pushed a little. And like you, many have experienced the Alpin's wild dance. A few of us have discussed this and will likely try the non run-flat version of the Yokohama Avid when the Falken ZIEX-912 tires are all gone.
