#1.) what tire are you offering for review (please include size)

falken ziex 512, 205/55/16
on a 2002 wrx sedan

#2.) what is your geographic location

eastern wa(spokane)

#3.) what types of driving events if any (i.e. track, AutoX, RallyX)

street only

#4.) percent of highway vs. city driving

approx 90% city, mildly aggressive

#5.) your review and personal comments

traction is pretty darn good for a sub$100 tire, noise is not really noticeable(unless your roads are crap... like Spokane)

after approximately 10,000 miles, having to replace a 30,000 mile tire because even when the tires are up to pressure, these are wearing like they are under-inflated(and before you ask, yes the alignment is spot-on, and the suspension is good and solid)to compensate for this wear pattern, had to go from the SOA recommended tire pressure up to 40psi all around...

personal comment: i have come across a couple of other reviews on this tire, stating about the same issue, so i think that this is fairly consistent of the fitment on our wrx's...
