Falken Tires with Porsche Macan Approval
May. 15. 2019
Falken Tyre Europe GmbH, Sumitomo Rubber Group's European sales company is pleased to announce that FALKEN have begun supplying tires for the current generation of Porsche Macan. The FALKEN AZENIS FK510A SUV are supplied in both 235/60R18 and 255/55R18 sizes. The tires each have the speed symbol "W" (up to 270 km/h) and a load index of 103 and 105 respectively.
The successful top-of-the-range model AZENIS FK510 has been available as an SUV-specific tire since 2017. With an innovative carcass design, AZENIS FK510A SUV tires ensure precise steering behavior and refinement. This is demonstrated through a high level of driving comfort and ensures well-balanced overall driving characteristics. The Porsche Macan is geared towards sporty drivers who will make use of the full ability of the tires. The ACP (Adaptive Constant Pressure) tread technology improves braking performance, directional stability and driving dynamics. As well as the excellent braking characteristics on wet surfaces, the AZENIS FK510A SUV is also noted for its long operating life. Using 4D NANO design technology, Falken engineers were able to design a ground-breaking rubber compound for the FK510 series tires which, in addition to providing a high degree of grip, also offers improved wear resistance.
"With the introduction of these tires, we have continued to apply our strategy of consistently offering an extensive range in growing and profitable segments," explains Christian Stolting, key account manager OE at Falken Tyre Europe GmbH. "Awarding us the factory fitting for the Porsche Macan doesn't just confirm this strategy, but also speaks volumes for the quality of our tires. Supplying Porsche with our tires is a bit of an accolade for us!"
