The Ziex512's are better than the Michelin OEM in the summer and dry but in the snow, they don't fair as well.I have the ZIEX in 215/50/17. Fitment is not be a problem. They are pretty good for all season tires, but don't expect the same grip as summer performance tires. Though, they are light years better than the Michellin OEM tires. I have yet to try them in snow though.
Yeah, I was afraid of that but I can't say I didn't expect that. It's just common tire sense that higher performance is inversely proportional to snow performance. Oh well, I work from home when it snows anyways...The Ziex512's are better than the Michelin OEM in the summer and dry but in the snow, they don't fair as well.
I've driven it in two different winters and the Michelin felt more stable and controllable in the snow versus the Ziex's. Probably because of tread design.
I have referred several friends to the ASX's for their cars, they love, great tires. I have the SPT's on our 6's and the MX's on the Speed Protege, great tires, resonalbly priced too!well as an alternative, take a look a Kumho Ecsta ASX as well. its the all season version of the SPT.
