Latest Tyre Test Results

2023 Studded Tyre Test - 4th of 8 tyres

  • Overall - Last year, the F-Ice 1 was disqualified after losing its studs from the unusually soft rubber. Falken identified a production error and promised new tyres to all customers who received products from the affected production period. Was it just an excuse, or is Falken's claim true?
    Upon testing Falken's latest studded tyre, we find that the studs are securely in place. The Japanese tyre has the best winter grip, second only to the more expensive brands. It also has good grip on wet asphalt and resists hydroplaning better than any other.
    The downside is a vague steering feel on dry roads and elevated noise levels.
    Falken offers a slightly more affordable option with a good mix of wet grip and winter traction.

2022 Studded Winter Tyre Test - 8th of 8 tyres

  • Positive - Short braking distances on asphalt, aquaplaning.
  • Negative - Studs coming loose, ice grip, loud road noise.
  • Overall - This year's stud news comes from the Japanese Falken with Winterpeak F-Ice 1. The rubber compound is unusually soft (Shore 52), which contributes to a calm character under pressure with a stable rear trailer on both snow and ice. Unfortunately, the actual level of grip on ice does not impress. Instead, the Falken thrives best on wet roads. It has really good aquaplaning resistance and the wet braking distance is the shortest of the test. Even in the dry, braking performance is good. However, it is spongy and somewhat difficult to place in the handling tests on wet and dry asphalt. However, the steering response during quieter driving is good. In terms of points, Falken reaches a fine fifth place, but we have never lost so many studs so quickly! This means that Falken is excluded from the final result.

    Latest Falken Winterpeak F Ice 1 Reviews

    Given 77% while driving a SEAT Cupra Born (225/55 R18) on mostly country roads for 450 spirited miles
    While the dry grip left a little bit to desire, it is a wonderful and well-rounded tire in snow and icey conditions. The feeling you get in slippy conditions was a very linear feeling that give you the confidence that you know exactly when you will step over the line. When you finally step over the line, you hav a very easy time regaining grip again due to the linear grip.
