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 distance)
Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a colour-coded scale. The highest fuel efficiency rating is A (green; the lowest rolling resistance), while the lowest fuel efficiency rating is G (red; the highest rolling resistance). Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and vehicle emissions; the lower the resistance, the lower the fuel consumption and exhaust fume emissions.
Wet grip is the tyre's ability to adhere to the road surface in wet conditions. The EU rating focuses only on the wet braking performance of the tyre. Wet grip is rated from A to G, where A represents the best braking performance and G represents the worst. It is one of the most crucial safety parameters.
Tyres contribute to the amount of noise a vehicle generates. Choosing a tyre with a good noise rating will lower the impact of your driving on the surrounding environment.
