Falken factory-fit for Audi Q3
Further OE announcements for Falken Tyre Europe with contract to supply Audi’s compact SUV
Falken will expand the size range of its most popular summer tyres by almost 40 dimensions during the year. The FALKEN AZENIS FK510, the brand's ultra high-performance tyre, will be expanded by 16 new dimensions. From Summer 2019, the UHP summer tyres will be commercially available in 89 sizes for rims from 17 to 21 inches. The SUV version of this tyre, the FALKEN AZENIS FK510 SUV, will also be expanded by ten new dimensions this year and for rims of 17to 22 inches. This means that sporty SUV drivers can choose from 56 sizes of this model.. The models FALKEN AZENIS FK510 and FALKEN FK510 SUV are part of the most modern tyres in the USP segment and offer everything that fans of high driving speeds could want: High directional stability on straight and curvy roads, extraordinary curve stability, shorter breaking times and excellent aquaplaning behaviour. This is confirmed again and again in independent tests, just like in the current Summer Tyres Test 2019 in the “AUTO BILD” magazine. As third place out of 53 tested tyres of size 225/45R17, the FALKEN AZENIS FK510 was lauded as “exemplary”.
Finally, the ZIEX ZE310 ECORON is being expanded by 19 dimensions so that this summer tyre is offered with a wide range of 128 dimensions with rim sizes of 14 to 18 inches. The ZIEX ZE310 ECORON has speed indices H, V and W (210 km/h, 240 km/h and 270 km/h) and has been inspiring sports drivers who don’t want to lose out on comfort since 2016. “New summer treads with very good safety margins in aquaplaning conditions, good steering precision and stable lateral guidance on dry tracks, short braking distances in both wet and dry conditions, high mileage”; these are just some of the qualities attributed to the FALKEN ZIEX ZE310 ECORUN, which have been confirmed by the editors of the big AUTO BILD Summer Tyres Test 2018, who have awarded it the prestigious title of ‘exemplary’.
“With the size expansions, we are reacting to the needs of our customers and supplementing our already fairly extensive range by dimensions with growing demand on the market”, Markus Bögner, COO and President of Falken Tyre Europe GmbH comments on the expanded portfolio.
