which tire is better

I am trying to decide between the ziex s/tz-04 and the general grabber uhp. Which one would you guys buy if they were both exactly the same price? I like the look of the ziex s/tz-04 better though.

general grabber uhp --- link

ziex s/tz-04 -- link

At least your using protection. Oh, your talking about tires.

Though not what you asked, I always liked the toyo proxies. I had them on my 02 explorer sport and liked the look and they were quiet. They are directional though, which means rotate front to back - back to front.

Re: which tire is better

they are nearly the same price
tirerack has the grabbers at like 105.00
the Falken on one site was like 105.00 and another was 117.00 but that site included free shipping on all orders.

At sears they are like 160 each. I think the grabbers were 5-10 bucks more than falkens at sears; falkens were 155, grabbers 160.

Re: which tire is better

the grabbers are ranked high at the tirerack.com with like an 86 score. So they are ranked good. Dont know about the falkens. Someone here has the falkens.,..maybe hemibeast?

Unless you are getting the tires from the same place as the wheels...youre gonna have to pay for mountying and balancing. I advise roadforce balancing for 20" wheels and tires.

Re: which tire is better

Re: which tire is better

not all shop will have a roadforce machine. Any good shop will though. Roadforce balancing in my area is only $10 for each wheel/tire....so its not bad around here.

Re: which tire is better

The general grabbers are rated really good along with the Falken Ziex. The biggest difference between the two is the falken ziex is a all season rated tire so it will be better in the snow. The General Grabbers are summer rated tires. They both do great on dry and wet pavement.

I returned your pm!
