On the performance touring end, Falken's new Sincera SN250 A/S, a replacement for its popular SN211 A/S, will offer 86 percent market coverage with 54 sizes ranging from 14 to 18 inches in rim diameter. The tire will come with an 80,000-mile treadwear warranty in T-rated sizes and a 75,000-mile warranty in H- and V-rated sizes.
Among its features, the tire uses Falken's proprietary Dynamic Range Technology to ensure maximum grip at a wider range of operating temperatures, the company said. Strategically placed tread blocks help to balance harmonics for a quiet ride, while 3D Canyon sipes add more gripping edges for snow traction.
Lastly, the Azenis FK450 A/S ultra-high-performance tire, designed for premium sports coupes and sedans, will be offered in 48 sizes with rim diameters of 16 to 20 inches. Falken said the tire offers 68 percent luxury sport vehicle coverage and comes with a 50,000-mile treadwear warranty.
Features of the tire include Falken's Tension Control Technology, which the company said serves to balance handling, high-speed stability and all-weather traction; slightly rounded sculpted-rib edges for prevention of rain groove wandering and enhanced straight line stability; high-dispersion silica for enhanced rubber pliability; and Falken's 3D Canyon Sipe technology.
