Falken FK510 SUV

Falken is expanding its Ultra High Performance (UHP) range of tyres by making its flagship AZENIS FK510 available as a SUV tyre from 2017. The new addition to Falken’s product line-up reflects the growth of the SUV market and continues the tyre manufacturer’s strategy of supplying an extensive range of products in profitable and high-growth segments.

A new, innovative casing design on the the AZENIS FK510 SUV ensures precise handling behavior, especially in cases of sudden load shifts while driving. The more circular casing profile increases the flexibility of the side wall, which results in a high degree of driving comfort and more balanced overall driving characteristics. Just like the car model of the tyre, the AZENIS FK510 SUV has 'blade sipes' to reduce instances of aquaplaning. Several small incisions in the tread bar optimises the contact area of the tyre when steering and allows more efficient penetration of standing water on the road.

    Given 84% while driving a Vauxhall MOKKA 1.4 TURBO (215/55 R18) on mostly country roads for 570 average miles
    Brought these tyres to replace the original Continentals, didn't really need the W speed rating but for the price and what I have heard of Falken tyres I thought I would give them ago, and so far well pleased. just a bit concerned about how they will wear as they are a more rounded tyre and I have my tyre pressure set at the lower limit for comfort rather than the eco pressure so they may wear a lot more on the edge than the Continentals.

    Volvo (235/60 R18) on a combination of roads for 6,000 spirited miles
    Dry handling is better than the Michelins I removed, also quieter ! wet Handling & change of direction is better, with better feed back, also less movement from the rear (xc60 D4 2wd) as i do chuck it about more than most ....... Mpg has gone down by about 4/5mpg ....which is a tad pants.... as the everything else is very impressive. looking at sticking a set on my Focus also

    I find these tyres very poor, and the slightest hint of moisture seems to make them slip. They came with my 'new' (used) car and I will be replacing them as soon as I can.

    Latest Falken FK510 SUV Reviews

    Given 93% while driving a Volvo XC90 D5 (163bhp) (255/55 R18) on mostly motorways for 20,000 spirited miles
    Modified Volvo XC90, so this may affect perception (lifted 30mm front & rear, ET27 8x18 alloys instead of stock ET49 7x18, meaning increased scrub radius and edge wear). Very good control of the boat (sic), sidewalls softer than average, tyre just looks better than same size winters, compliant, comfortable, and silent ride. Each spring was a relief fitting them back on after months with rigid and loud Hankook winters (never again). Inflated properly, and with wheel alignment in order, wear on these Falkens is quite decent, too, total life maybe 25k on this vehicle but this is (was) a 2.5 ton modified pile of iron driven ruthlessly (hours of 100mph on German Autobahn each way, on bad roads / among worse motorists in Europe, sometimes in 38 deg C, etc).
