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.
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 manufactures tyres not only for passenger cars, but also for vans, 4x4 vehicles, lorries and industrial machines.

I HAVE BEEN USING GOOD QUALITY SUMMER TYRES RENOWNED BRANDS ALL YEAR ROUND FOR NEARLY 30 YEARS, USING PROFESSIONAL DRIVING STANDARDS AND KNOWLEDGE TO KEEP ME AND MY FAMILY SAFE. I DECIDED TO FINALLY TRY WINTER TYRES,AS A BIT OF AN EXPERIMENT. HAVING USED FALKEN TYRES MANY TIMES IN THE PAST I WENT FOR THE FALKEN HS 449 EURO WINTER, I USED THIS TYRE IN ALL !! TYPES OF WEATHER AND ROAD SURFACES IE DRY,DAMP,WET,TORRENTIAL RAIN, MUD, GRAVEL AND FINALLY SNOW/SLUSH. I WAS UNABLE TO FAULT THIS TYRE ON ANY SURFACE OR WEATHER " ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC " I WENT MENTAL ON SNOW ON A PREVIOUSLY USED RALLY STAGE, BRILLIANT TIME WAS HAD,NO OFF ROAD EXCURSIONS, TYRES PERFORMED FAULTLESSLY !!!!!!!!!
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.
I changed to winter tyres as my wife is up at 5am most days to take my daughter swimming over the winter.
the tyres where used in mostley wet cold or frosty conditions,they performed well with no worries you could tell the difference in grip once I stopped using the summer tyres,
I will buy again
Falken have always been excellent tyres I have had this make on my last 3 cars from hot hatch to family to 4x4 Freelander and small vans. I have them to wear well giving in excess of 35,000 miles on set.It endows my van to go places some 4x4s cant get
