    The purchase of Falken HS 439s was purely accidental - if it wasn't for the promotion in the shop, my review would be even more negative. They are OK for light winter conditions (clear roads and a bit of slush). I drove for two seasons on them and to be honest, vehicle behavior in the snow was similar to that on summer Goodyears. The tyre is completely unsuitable for fast routes with a snow layer. While starting can be omitted in my assessment, because it depends on the car's power and drive type, the grip in the corners and brking on these tyres can be surprising (either you manage to stop or you fail to do so). It is totally unpredictable, especially in snow-covered corners and in emergency situations on the road (quick avoiding). ESP had to assist the driving almost all the time. The fact is that the Audi A4 B7 diesel without quattro drive has a lot much understeer but on Fulda Kristall Monteros I never experienced such problems like on Falkens. With a price similar to Goodyear Ultragrip's, its purchase would be "suicide". When it comes to abrasion, I can confirm it's really durable. After two years and more than 45 thousand miles there's almost no wear off, however the tyre has practically no winter tread since its release from the factory. This is a typical tyre for water and rain, but it's completely unsuitable for real winter conditions.

    Driveability of Falken HS 439s is fine, a little bit too weak when starting in snow. On ice it behaves like every other tyre - there's no tyre that can go on ice without spikes. You have to be careful in snowy corners, but on wet it's good. I didn't test it at speeds higher than 75 MPH - as for now I am driving in the city only. The biggest problem turned out to be fitting these tyres to wheels - the tyre is very hard and has a low profile, normally it's not strange but the service worker had a hard time putting them onto the wheels (it got fitted only after lubricating it with a large amount of grease and pumping up the pressure to 5) As for me, it shouldn't be like that - and that's the reason why I won't buy them again. When it comes to driving in winter conditions - this is OK and that was the plan. Also, maybe the wheels - (alloy Dotz) weren't perfect, but in the workshop they said that they have fitted lots of tyres to such wheels and had no problems, I can believe it as I had Goodyear tyres fitted to the same wheels and had no problems. If I were to buy tyres now, I'd do it in the workshop where they are fitted at once - if there are problems, I can take different ones, as it's easier to make a complaint on the spot than send the tyres back with the use of a courier.

    I would like to say that my engine is 1.8 but I got it chiped and now the power is much higher than in the original engine. I bought Falkens on During the first week after fitting them I have made about 1000 miles. It was decembere and it was pretty snowy. These tyres behave properly on dry road surface. On dry road I don't feel any difference between Goodyear Exellence and Falkens HS439. Very good grip on snow - confident braking. The 1000 miles distance does not allow me to judge the attriction. Design just splendid.since now I was driving on Contiwinters and Ultra grips and falkens are very comparable to these high-class tyres. recommend.

    I have a SUV 4x4. I bought them because I heard a lot of good reviews about these tyres. They are produced in Romania, Turkey etc but I decided to buy Japaneese Falkens according to all those positive reviews. I didn't expect too much but they supriised me positively. Falken HS439 is a fantastic tyre under any circumstances. Veeeery comfortable (uncomparable to Michelins which did not provide me with such excellent comfort). very silent. You have to drive about 200 miles to rub the first silicon surface off. Splendid product. I became a huge fan of that brand. Recommend

    Imo one of the best winter tyres. Very good behavior on snow. After 2500 miles (1 winter season) I have to say that the tyre is almost new. I was driving on dry and wet surface. I can compare them to Pirelli SnowSport and Michelin (I dont remember the model) and I have to say that Falkens are the best. Behavior on snow is almost the same but when it comes to driving on dry road they are way better than all the high class tyres. I feel very safe driving on them. I drive where I want to drive and I have no problems with that. Recommend
