Falken AZENIS FK510 Wins awards in 2018 Summer Tyre Tests
Falken's AZENIS FK510 has received more awards in Germany's prestigious 2018 summer test.
The FK510 has received the top spot in German motoring magazine ACE Lenkrad's trial, alongside receiving a 'Highly Recommended' rating in Auto Zeitung's summer tyre text.
The Advanced 4D NANO design process has revolutionised Falken's approach and enabled its tyres to now challenge the performance of the premium brands.
Ace Lenkrad's test revealed the FK510 fitted to a VW Passat size 235/45R18 delivered the fastest time against ten competitors around the dry handling course, a wet braking distance of less than 4q metres, extremely low drive-by noise and low rolling resistance to claim the top spot.
Auto Zeitung's test, used a SEAT Leon SC 1.4 TSI ACT, in full braking from 100 km/h on a wet track, the FK510 came to a standstill in only 50 metres, just 0.6m behind the highest-scoring tyre, leading the respected magazine to state "In the wet, Michelin, Continental and Falken drive in a league of their own."
Performance wasn't just restricted to the wet, in the dry Auto Zeitun claimed "The FK510's cornering was very swift and stable, even during rapid lane changes."
In ACE Lenkrad's "Environment/Economy" test category, the outstanding technical characteristics of the Falken AZENIS FK510 helped it to score 137 points out of a possible 170. As the fourth lowest priced tyre in the tests, the FK510 also demonstrated consumers choosing mid-range tyres need not compromise on performance and safety.
The AZENIS FK510's success isn't just restricted to Germany; it was also selected by the UK's Tyre Review's '11 of the best summer tyres for 2018'
