The Falken ZE 914 is a product belonging to the Sumitomo group, made by its subsidiary company Ohtsu Tire & Rubber Company. The Falken ZE 914 is recognised as a mid-range tyre but its affordable price does not mean that it compromises on quality or performance.
The Falken ZE 914 has an asymmetric tread pattern, which ensures that the driver feels safe whilst driving in summer on different types of surface. The dual tread design gives the driver control over the car and confidence when negotiating corners on dry surfaces and protection against skidding on wet roads. Vehicles fitted with Falken ZE 914 tyres offer a stable performance, resulting in a smooth driving experience. Thanks to the large contact surface between the tyre and the road, the tyre offers excellent grip on dry roads, while the longitudinal tread grooves effectively disperse water whilst driving on wet roads.
The Falken ZE 914 is made from a silica and polymer-enriched compound, which means that the product performs well on wet surfaces whilst also ensuring an economic driving experience (lower fuel consumption) and safety. Thanks to the relevant markings on the tyres (indicator showing tread condition), drivers can see for themselves whether the tyre needs replacing when its wear level has reached a point where it compromises safety.
The Falken ZE 914 offers the driver a comfortable and safe driving experience and protection against aquaplaning or loss of control over the vehicle. Thanks to its low price, the tyre is affordable for all drivers looking for an economical solution without compromising on quality and comfort.
Falken is a Japanese tyre brand owned by Sumitomo. It started in 1983, and two years later was introduced on the American market. Originally, Falken tyres were intended for sporty cars. Currently, they are available almost all over the world and are not only intended for the fastest cars but also for many other vehicles, such as family and urban cars, 4x4 vehicles, etc.
