The Falken tyre was awarded top marks in the wet braking and wet handling categories as well as on the wet circuit. This is no coincidence, as thanks to a uniquely high-performance tread pattern, the large-volume, specially-arranged circumferential tread grooves ensure a rapid water displacement and highly efficient drainage. In addition to this, the wing sipes on the outer edge optimise the contact area of the tyre around curves, and therefore penetrate wet surfaces even more effectively: functions which also contribute to aquaplaning safety.
The ratings in individual off-road tests are also impressive, especially for traction in sand and handling on gravel. In each of these categories, the Falken AZENIS FK510 SUV was awarded the second best ranking. A special ACP tread is responsible for the good performance. This Adaptive-Constant-Pressure tread ensures a uniform degree of contact pressure and therefore a constant shape of the tread contact surface. This means that the contact surface is evenly loaded, which leads to added adhesion and therefore to a high degree of directional stability and an even wear pattern. An even wear resistance not only protects the environment, it also protects your wallet.
Overall, the Falken AZENIS FK510 SUV came in at third place in the rankings with a rating of “Good”.
Speaking about the result, Falken Turkey representative Mustafa Hamdi Seyhan said, "We are happy that our tyre has performed so well in this extremely challenging category. The high quality of our tires has been proven by the results obtained by reputable test authorities, as well as customer satisfaction."
The Falken AZENIS FK510 SUV, which is factory-fitted to the Porsche Macan and Mercedes-Benz G-Class, is available in 53 dimensions, from 17 to 22 inches, in the 30 – 65 series. The tyre is approved for speeds from 210 km/h to over 300 km/h.
