Need feedback on Falken ZE 512's!

My fiance is going to replace her 15" tires on her '02 Cavalier. I can get a really good deal on the Falken ZE 512. Anyone use them?

Well I made some calls @ work today. Guess they are not a good all season....but for the price they are an O.K. tire at best for summer.

You don't get snow traction with any all-seasons, look.

Trust me I know! I argued till I was blue in the face but she won't buy cheap full blown winters since her car is a lease and she isn't going to keep it (and the stock tires are shot).

I found some cheapo tires for $56.95+tx..........they said that they will be good enough so when she trades the car back that she won't get charged for them.
