Falken ZE 914 195/45 R15 78 V
Falken ZE 914 summer tyres are designed for the cars belonging to middle and upper classes. The are adapted to the dynamic driving at high speed, but also very well suited for everyday use. In the sake of safety the tread wear indicator was used in this tyre.
Falken ZE 914 features an asymmetric tread pattern, which is divided into zones. The outer and inner side were computer-optimized by the so-called Hybrid-Asymmetric Pattern Design. Falken ZE 914 offers a flat contour, which provides a large surface in contact with the ground. The pressure is distributed evenly over the entire surface of the tread. Thanks to that, the tread wears evenly.
With a modern rubber compound of increased durability and wear resistance, the tyre ensures high mileage of more than 100 000 km. Four broad, deep peripheral channels, and the central rib with curved grooves provide efficient water evacuation from the surface of the centre of the tread in contact with the ground. The result is increased resistance to aquaplaning, so fast driving in the rain becomes a real pleasure. Falken ZE 914 has been equipped with a tread wear indicator called Rotation Wear Indicators (RWI), which provides constant control of the thickness of the rubber layer.
Falken is a Japanese brand that is a guarantee of high quality, safety and high performance. It has existed since 1983. It is one of Asia’s biggest tyre manufacturers and a part of the Sumitomo Group. It manufactures a wide range of tyres for many market segments. The tyres are manufactured in accordance with ISO and ECE certificates that are also required for trading on the European market.
Tyre Falken ZE 914 in the size 195/45 R15 78 V, according to information given by manufacturer, it has the following driveability parameters:
Fuel efficiency (rolling resistance)
Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a color-coded scale.
A class (green) stands for the highest fuel efficiency rating (=the lowest rolling resistance).
G class (red) marks the lowest fuel efficiency rating (= the highest rolling resistance). Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and fumes emission, thus the lower the resistance, the lower fuel consumption and exhaust fumes emission is.
Wet grip is the tyre’s ability to adhere to the road in wet conditions. The EU rating focuses only on one aspect of wet grip – the wet braking performance of the tyre. Wet grip is rated from A to G:
A class stands for the best braking performance, whereas G class stands for the worst breaking performance. It is one of the crucial parameters influencing the road safety.
Tyres contribute to the amount of pass-by noise a vehicle generates. Choosing a tyre with a good noise rating will lower the impact of your driving on the surrounding environment.
