In this Falken Pro G4 A/S review, I wanted to find out how this tire compares to the similar looking Ziex ZE950. Both are classified as high-performance all-season tires so I was also curious if the former can perform well on wet and slippery surfaces.
One thing is for sure: the Falken Pro G4 A/S looks awesome.
The aggressive tread design will give your car a more sporting stance and feel courtesy of the silica compound (which also happens to be the same compound utilized in the Ziex ZE950). This will allow the tires to remain pliable even when continuously exposed to cold weather conditions.
My test car for this Falken Pro G4 A/S review is a 2012 Chrysler 200 S sedan. This car comes with a 3.6-liter V6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission. My test car was also fitted with factory-spec 18-inch wheels and Falken Pro G4 tires. The Chrysler 200 looks more like a small luxury sedan, but the Falken Pro G4 tires managed to add a dose of sportiness to the car mostly thanks to the tread design.

Falken Pro G4 A/S Review: Features
Falken Pro G4 A/S review: Test Drive
Traction and grip on dry pavement were good, but not particularly excellent.I think this has something to do with the suspension tuning of the Chrysler, although I did feel the tires hunting for traction as I accelerated hard on the mildly damp asphalt.Cornering and stability were above average. Braking was also excellent given the weight of the Chrysler 200. No surprises there since the Falken Pro G4 is an all-season high-performance tire, although I had a lingering thought that the Falken Ziex ZE950 had more to offer in terms of dry traction and grip.
If you want to elevate the dry and wet handling of your sedan or coupe, you should take a second look at the Falken Pro G4 A/S. It performs well on a variety of road surfaces and it can handle light snow as well. Even though I found the tires to be a bit noisy on the highway, I was pleased with the low wear characteristics of the Falken Pro G4.
If you take into account all good things that you can experience with this tire, its low price could be considered as a relative bargain compared to other brands that will charge a bit more cash for a tire with the same level of performance and refinement as the Falken Pro G4 A/S.
