i agree...i have them on all fours and they are not good tires in the rain. I like them in the dry but during the wet days plan on driving carefully..efsib16 said:A friend of mine had a set of those Ziex. Maybe he got a bad set, but his were slick. They were scary in the rain. Just a bad set of tires.
you can't be serious. the tread on mine lasted for ~10,000 miles-ish.96silvercx said:I had these on my 96 civic hatch and transfered them over to my 98 teg. These tires performed excellent/above average. I never had any problems with them in dry and stuck very well in wet, even burn rubber. Light snow, they didn't do bad either, but we have public transpo here so I don't drive much during the weeks it snows. The tire tread lasted about 2 years.
Based on my experience with these tires I would buy another set, if I couldn't find another comparable tire in the price range. $220 for set of 205/15s.
However there are other options that I can pursue and I am looking for a new set today with more $$$ to spend. The reason today that I'm not buying another set is b/c they wear terribly and as they wear they signifigantly lose grip. The reason I didn't drive my car today, b/c this past month everytime its rained I've gone slipping and sliding all over the place and I don't need to rear end anybody in rush hour how I drive!
Not to take anything away from the tire, b/c they are great, you just need to replace them b4 they begin to show signifigant signs of wear. Oh and the protective lip was a blessing in disguise protecting my rims!!! They did very well by me. I kept them balance/rotated every other month or everytime they felt 'off', with the 1 year rotation from NTB (gotta luv it).
I put about 35-38k on these puppies!
