Falken has been selling its second brand, “Sumitomo Tyres”, since the end of 2017. Its current product range, available at selected traders throughout the whole of Europe, consists of the car and SUV BC100 summer tyres, and the SL727, a summer tyre especially for transporters and light commercial vehicles.
Tyre manufacturer FALKEN is sticking to its tradition and will also appear this year as one of the main sponsors of the ADAC 24-hour Race in Zurich, which will take place on the Nürburgring from 12th to 13th May 2018.
The latest video by German-language rap star Kontra K turns the spotlight on an actor with a difference. Drift cars under the FALKEN banner take centre stage in the video accompanying “Oder nicht” (Or Not), the artist’s third single from the album “Erde und Knochen” (Earth and Bone), which was released last Sunday.
Falken Tyre will launch three new tyre models at Tire Cologne, held on 29 May to 1 June in Cologne, Germany. Debuting at the event will be Falken’s new EUROALL Season AS210 tyre for passenger cars, the EUROALL Season VAN11 for light trucks and vans, and the Wildpeak M/T01, a tyre designed for off-road use.

The FALKEN AZENIS FK510 has been ranked first in the 2018 summer tyre tests carried out by German motoring magazine ACE Lenkrad in collaboration with the German Technical Inspection Association (GTÜ) and its Austrian partner organisation, ARBÖ. Falken's top-end tyre delivered the fastest time around the dry handling course, wet braking distance of less than 41 metres, extremely low drive-by noise and low rolling resistance to take the top spot.
“New summer treads with very good safety margins when aquaplaning, good steering precision and stable lateral guidance on a dry track, 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 Autobild Summer Tyres Test 2018, who have awarded it the prestigious title of 'exemplary'.
