The Falken ZE 914 is a product belonging to the Sumitomo group, made by its subsidiary company Ohtsu Tire & Rubber Company. The Falken ZE 914 is recognised as a mid-range tyre but its affordable price does not mean that it compromises on quality or performance.
The Falken ZE 914 has an asymmetric tread pattern, which ensures that the driver feels safe whilst driving in summer on different types of surface. The dual tread design gives the driver control over the car and confidence when negotiating corners on dry surfaces and protection against skidding on wet roads. Vehicles fitted with Falken ZE 914 tyres offer a stable performance, resulting in a smooth driving experience. Thanks to the large contact surface between the tyre and the road, the tyre offers excellent grip on dry roads, while the longitudinal tread grooves effectively disperse water whilst driving on wet roads.
The Falken ZE 914 is made from a silica and polymer-enriched compound, which means that the product performs well on wet surfaces whilst also ensuring an economic driving experience (lower fuel consumption) and safety. Thanks to the relevant markings on the tyres (indicator showing tread condition), drivers can see for themselves whether the tyre needs replacing when its wear level has reached a point where it compromises safety.
The Falken ZE 914 offers the driver a comfortable and safe driving experience and protection against aquaplaning or loss of control over the vehicle. Thanks to its low price, the tyre is affordable for all drivers looking for an economical solution without compromising on quality and comfort.

Bought 4 tires Falken ZE914 215/55 R16 97W for a VW Sharan 1.9 TDI. Existing tires are Dunlop SP Sport 2020E and had around 2-3 mm tread on the rear tires and 2mm on the left on the front tires. I drove on Firestone and Dunlop SP Sport 9000 on the previous cars. Dunlop advised to change SP Sport 01 as they had stiff shoulders therefore better handling, because the VW Sharan high center of gravity. However, I took a risk and went for a brand Falken Ziex 914 defendants due to £ 20 price difference per tire. I definitely made the right choice. Tyre pressures remained the same as on old tires as recommended by VW on the fuel cap. I ran into the tires of 250 miles on local travel and on a motorway trip to 55 mph as advised. I''ve driven over 800 miles on the highway and local roads and now compared to the 2020th Dunlop SP Sport I obtained the following results for the benefit. 1. Lighter steering makes driving and parking much easier, tires are somehow very light, even after execution. 2. Fuel MPG improved considerably by 4 + mpg as indicated on the meter average vw edge. The MPG has increased by at least 6 mpg on highway speeds between 55 and 75 mph 3. Comfort is improved, the car is smoother on minor bumps and a little better on larger bumps that Dunlop. I kept the tire pressure the same as Dunlop. 4. dry grip improved slightly. I noticed that the car oversteer or understeer at 30 mph - 40 mph on two-lane road and motorway turns the slip road. 5. Wet grip has improved considerably and I can feel the control of the car at speed in the rain and can change lanes on a highway in the sense of control when I need to quickly move the car left or right when changing lanes. 6. The noise is not noticeable at the local level, but slightly improved on the highway. 7. Tire Wear - too early, even after 800 miles, will try to leave another review after 10K miles Global Verdict. After much research and about purchasing the SP Sport 01 SP Sport Blueresponse or after reading the comments, I'm glad I made the right choice and saved money by choosing the Falken ZE914 Ziex. I feel performance and comfort increased. Previously, only the top brands purchased but now must consider price brands such as Falken environment.
I was wondering for a long time over which tyres to choose. I decided to go for Falken. I admit that I was guided by the price and the opinions of others. The car that I drive has maximum speed 180km and rear-wheel drive, I might add, that this is a diesel, and these Falken ZE 914 are perfect!! :) Whether it’s in wet or dry conditions or even when I drive into a puddle nothing unexpected happens. Literally as if on rails. As for the noise I had 16inch Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D and the level is the same - none. I do not know whether it’s my car soundproof or the tyres are really that quiet, but I can’t hear them. I drive very fast and sometimes I can hear when the front tyres literally bite into the road without compromising on controllability. At 150m/H the car still behaves normally. Speaking of the wear, I do not know. I have done around 1000 miles and after washing they still look like new. I recommend Falken ZE 914 and I know that my next purchase will also be Falken but probably 19inch :)
I highly recommend Falken ZE 914. I had a lot of different tyres before, always from the top shelf. In my opinion, Falken beats Michelin, Goodyear and Dunlop. I tested them with emergency braking on dry and wet roads. The car stops immediately in place. Even in the mud they managed nicely. They are very durable and resistant to abrasion. Fuel consumption in general hasn’t changed so as for me they are very economical. My Mazda at an average speed of 87m/h burns around 6l. On the highways at speeds up to 150m/h it feels like the car is flying, and in the event of a fast braking doesn’t lose control but instantly stops. From April to September 2014 I did well over 20 thousand miles using them. I haven’t noticed any significant tread wear. I drive in the city and on international routes. The only slight minus is that the tyre noise is noticeable. As for me, this is not a problem because a moderately loud music eliminates this drawback. In my opinion Falken ZE 914 is quite nice tyre.
Falken ZE 914 pleasantly surprised me, compared to summer predecessors - Bridgestone Potenza Re 50 205/50R16, now I have Falken 215/40R17 and they are much better than Bridgestone; although they had larger profile I could feel every unevenness on the road. They are also much harder than Falken. In wet conditions even with the wet track I haven’t sensed any disturbance. Potenza was able to spin the wheels on the wet. The only minus I found in Falken is that during the hot weather they warm up and you can smell the burnt rubber while approaching them. They are still new and not used a lot, but I don’t think it’s something serious. The smell is perceptible only as auto stands in a garage after driving :) NOISE -> as for wider tyres than the previous ones are quieter, even than Nexen (much louder hum) IN GENERAL - I recommend 100%, no damage despite few accidents with curbs :) All in all I recommend Falken ZE 914
Due to the low profile of Falken ZE 914 tyres I don't judge the suppression of inequality. On dry roads at least they behave properly. On wet as well. These are my first low profile tyres so driving for me is great. It is possible that it is because of the AWD drive - also a first for me. I’ve read that there are problems with balancing these tyres but for me not a problem. What’s interesting is that in the event of a pressure drop (due to the significant cooling) the steering wheel started to vibrate at speeds above 60m/h. After adapting the inflation level for the required use the problem disappeared. After driving 14k miles consumption is very low. Overall, I am satisfied with Falken ZE 914. Usually I bought tyres of manufacturers such as Dunlop and Goodyear, however, in this case due to grip on the wet roads they can be compared to Dunlop FastResponse that I had in the other car.
