I'm running Falken ZE-502's (245/45ZR-17) on my Trep right now, and love them! The ZE-512 is the newer version of the 502... I only have 5k miles on them at this point, but I've been putting them to the test in the snow this last few days (13" in Salt Lake City), and they've performed VERY well for a big tire. I just had them rotated last weekend, and they are wearing perfectly! I paid about $530 U.S. out the door including a full set of lug-nuts. I paid $103 per tire, plus install, road hazard warranty, etc...

There's my $.02 (U.S.)

Nokia? I thought they were a phone company?


I've been real happy with my Kumho Ecsta STX. I paid just under US$100/ea.


In general, I have heard good things about Nokian and Falken. In fact those were two other brands I was looking at.

Kumho's were my second choice solely based on availability. The Falken's were in stock!

Yokohama Avid V4! I running these now, and they've worked well for so far this winter, and I'm up here in the NW too. They a decent mileage tire, cheap, quiet, good enough A/S tread to bite into snow, good grip. And you should check out Tire Rack or Discount just to at least find the info on the tires. And Discount is local, I don't about you.

Hey Warlord, He means Nokian, which are unequivocally THE best snow tires in the world and they also make all season, but I'm not sure of how those stack up to the rest of the world.
Or did you already know that and was making a funny??
