BRUSSELS—Falken has been chosen to supply original equipment tires for new Volkswagen Tiguan models, Falken Tyre Europe has announced.
The company is supplying Falken Ziex ZE914A Ecorun tires in the dimension 215/65 R17 99V to factory-equip the new vehicles.
The tires, Falken said, were developed to reduce fuel consumption and deliver good handling and braking even in wet road conditions.
According to Falken, tire testers for German motoring magazine Auto Motor und Sport gave the tires the rating of "recommended" and described them as "well-balanced in wet conditions, with extremely neutral handling and extremely precise steering" and offering "good ride comfort."
The test examined a total of nine summer tires in dimensions 215/60 R 17H.
The tires are manufactured at Sumitomo Rubber Industries' plant in Thailand.
