Falken ZE912 tyres 10 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 2
I have 2 x 205/40/17 and 2 x 215/40/17 Falken ZE 912 tyres. I ordered them before the snow came and in the meantime I smashed 1 of my wheels so these tyres are useless to me till I get some new wheels which might be a while and might not be 17's so anyone looking for new tyres would be hard pushed to beat these at the low low price of €220 for the set thats €55 a tyre you wont even get nankangs for that here. These are a very good tyre have never been fitted to a car and have gotten good reviews. I can deliver within Dublin

If you're suffering from lag, you're either in the wrong gear or the wrong car!

Thanks mate. I've actually gotten a nice surprise. I was checking online about wheel repair and it turns out some of the repairs done are out of this world and make my damage look negligible. See below:

www.alloywheelrepairs.net/WheelRepair-Car-Wheel.html

On the off-chance i took a spin up to Route 66 and they said they could fix it, needless to say I'm delighted. They are going to do the metal work only no painting but I can paint myself. 150 euro and it'll be ready Tuesday.
Due to this stroke of good luck i'll be holding onto these tyres. For anyone unlucky enough to severely damage a wheel It might be worth looking into repair even if it looks beyond it. See below for a pic of my damage. Also keep any bits that break off, mine would not have been possible had i not done so.

I'll post some pics of the returned wheel so people know what to expect should they need to use this service. I reckon I wasn't the only one to fall foul of the conditions of late hopefully this helps someone.
