I've done tons of searches on the Falken 512s and they seem to have good dry and wet traction from what I've read (as well as being cheap), but I have yet to see a review of how they do in the snow, does anyone else have any idea how they do in the snow?
I had them on my civic, and they did work well for me. I had 205/40/17. The deepest I went into snow with them was 7 inches, never tried deeper and had no problem. Made it up steep snowy hills fine for me and overall they were truely all season.
those are suppose to be summer (dry/wet) tires, you shouldn't try them on snow man... besides, using those plus 1 or plus 2 tires is not good during winters...
you will have less traction compare to the traditional OEM rims and tire setups...
besides, you shouldn't even use your aftermarket rims anyway in winter... salt would eat away your precious rims.
Just snap in some winter tires onto your OEM rims and survive for the winter man.
They are pretty good tires. I had a set on my civic and my buddy had them on his trans am. They did great in the snow and in rain. Much better than the Kuhmo's I have now. This past winter I drove my car to our farm to go hunting with the kuhmo's and got stuck there for 3 days because I couldn't drive up a small hill in the snow that wasn't even 1" deep. I would buy the falken's again.
