Falken HS 449

The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.

Tyre details:

The Falken HS 449 is a winter tyre designed for passenger cars. Its design is based on a state-of-the-art silica-enhanced rubber compound which ensures flexibility at extreme temperatures and therefore improves driving safety and comfort by increasing grip.

The Falken HS 449 features a directional tread pattern with an innovative arrangement of blades that offers superb traction, rapid dispersal of water and a reduced risk of aquaplaning. The optimised compound used to manufacture the model reduces both its weight and its rolling resistance, meaning lower fuel consumption and fewer atmospheric CO2 emissions. The tyre is also exceptionally resistant to mechanical damage and rapid wear. The engineers took care to ensure an even distribution of forces acting on the tyre, meaning that the tread wears slowly and evenly and the tyre delivers not only maximum performance through its lifetime, but also greater driving safety. All of these features make the Falken HS 449 an exceptionally eco-friendly and economical choice. The Falken HS 449 also reduces tyre noise, since the combination of a state-of-the-art tread with a balanced compound ensures that any noise generated by the tyre during driving is rapidly cancelled out, making for a quiet and comfortable drive. The tyre is the ideal choice for demanding drivers who are looking for balanced performance and safety on the road at a reasonable price.

Falken is a Japanese tyre manufacturer specialising in mid-range tyres which was founded in 1983. Its products are famous for their balanced performance and superb value for money. Falken manufactures tyres not only for passenger cars, but also for vans, 4x4 vehicles, lorries and industrial machines. Sumitomo Rubber Industries purchased a majority shareholding in the company in 2003.

    These tyres give me great confidence in both wet and dry conditions but especially so in wet and muddy conditions, as in country lanes. I haven't had a chance to test them in the snow as yet. I was impressed with the fact that they have 9mm tread depth when new though. I have only driven around 2000 miles on them so far with mixed driving and they are still on 9mm. I have nothing adverse to say about these tyres and I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy a decent winter tyre.

    On The journey these tyres do daily the weather changes continuously in winter. We live 120 metres above sea level so if the temperature is -1 here then the car goes down the hill on to motorway driving . 13 miles after that it goes in the hills and changes to country riads where it can be -10 , icy, snowing, slush . Not been on really deep snow yet, but they were good on a few inches of snow.
