Default Good Handling Tire for the Money

I would like some feedback on Cooper Cobra tires and Falken ZE-912 tires. I currently have 205/55/16 Goodyear Eagles that need replacing. Considering 215/55/16 Cooper Cobras that a friend has for sale. But also have read that Falkens are good tires too. Any suggestions?

Cool Re: Good Handling Tire for the Money

From the prices I've seen lately the Falken Zien 912 are the upper end, and good tires. Lots of favorable posts on this forum about them. I will probably look to them as replacemnts this spring.

Currently, I've got the Kumho Ecsta SPTs - they are probably the low end tire; but still a great buy ($75 each at Mine have over 40K, and lots of wear left. (if it weren't for the fact I flat sided the fronts)

BTW - neither of these are "great" on snow & ice.
