Story of Falken
Falken Tyre Europe GmbH is the European affiliate of Sumitomo Rubber Industries Ltd., a Japanese tyre manufacturer that is currently the sixth largest tyre manufacturer in the world. Falken provides a complete tyre portfolio that spans passenger cars, light trucks, trucks, pick-ups and SUVs as original equipment and for the entire European retrofitting market.
Falken's tyres are developed and tested in the world's most demanding racing series. The Falken brand is involved in exciting and high technology platforms.

As an original equipment manufacturer, Falken supplies tyres to many automotive manufacturers including Honda, SEAT, Skoda, Toyota and Volkswagen. Most recently, Falken has been selected as an original equipment manufacturer for the sixth-generation Volkswagen Polo, which became available in October 2017. Meanwhile, earlier in 2017 it confirmed an exclusive partnership with Toyota to provide a new ECORUN A-A tyre in the replacement market for the Prius III hybrid vehicles, available through authorised Toyota Germany dealers. The Falken ECORUN A-A tyre is A-rated for fuel efficiency and A-rated for wet grip.

Cooperation of Falken with Point S
Falken has been working hand-in-hand with Point S in Germany together since 2013. At the beginning of 2017 we decided to extend this cooperation to France, Poland and Belgium, based on the joint success we experience in Germany. The long term plan is to look at further cooperation at a European level.
Falken tyres for all vehicle: cars, trucks and more!
The AZENIS FK510 is Falken's ultra-high-performance (UHP) tyre. It has received ‘Highly Recommended' ratings from German motoring magazine Autozeitung and the German technical inspection association, Gesellschaft für Technische Überwachung (GTÜ). It was also named one of the top three tyres in the Auto Bild summer tyre test and was rated ‘Exemplary'.
The Falken AZENIS FK510 incorporates advanced features to ensure top performance in wet conditions and has Adaptive Constant Pressure (ACP) technology for consistent pressure distribution throughout the tyre footprint, which enhances braking performance, directional stability and driving dynamics.
For a sporty and economical drive, Falken has the ZIEX range, including the ZE914, ZE914 RUNFLAT and the new ZIEX ZE310 ECORUN tyre. This new summer tyre offers outstanding traction and excellent grip on both wet and dry roads, coupled with low wear performance.
As with many of its tyres, Falken's engineering team employed award-winning Advanced 4D Nano Design technology during the development process to produce a futuristic tyre compound for the ZIEX ZE310 ECORUN that offers maximum mileage and efficiency plus improved running characteristics. Advanced 4D Nano Design technology was named 'Tire Technology of the Year' at the annual Tire Technology International Awards for Innovation and Excellence 2017.
For long-lasting comfort, Falken offers the SINCERA range, which comprises the SN832 ECORUN, SN831 and SN828. Meanwhile, the WILDPEAK and LANDAIR ranges support the 4x4 market.
