Default Falken Ziex ZE512 Help

Hey Everyone,

I was wondering if anyone has had any noise problems with Falken ZE412's. They started out okay, but not that it has been a little over 10k miles it is unbearably loud. What I am wondering is if other people have had this same problem. Could it be I need an Alignment fix? All I know is that the car is annoyingly loud and I can hear it revolve and can feel it pulsating through the body. Any feedback would be great.

Thanks,
Ed

the 512 is a highly rated tire.

sounds like you got one or two bad tires.

In what way would it be bad? Would it be warped or something? Thanks for responding.

....alignment issue most likely.....a toe issue will cause a slight feather edge and that gets noisy.

I guess I'm getting an alignment done this weekend. I guess I'll inspect the tires more closely during that time as well. Thanks guys.
