Falken impresses in all-season tyre test

In the major all-season tyre test by Auto Bild magazine, the Falken Euroall Season AS210 was awarded the accolade of ‘exemplary’, coming in at fifth place in a total of 32 tested tyres, thereby securing its place among the top 10 all-season tyres in the 205/55R16 size.

The independent testers said: “A brand profile with balanced driving characteristics, stable handling in all weather conditions, good aquaplaning attributes, a high mileage capability and an affordable price.”

To make it into the main test alone, the tyre was required to qualify in a brake test on wet and dry roads: at initial speeds of 100 km/h, the Falken tyre achieved 51.3 m on wet and 42.7 m on dry roads, and thereby secured a place in the top third of the overall field.

In the main test, the Falken tyres proved capable of more than holding their own: with a calculated mileage capability of 67,820 km, the Falcon Euroall Season AS210 is only around 7,000 km behind the mileage capability of the test winner in this particular category.

This outcome also finds reflection in the category of ‘price per 1,000 km’. Here, at €4.05 per 1,000 km driven, the Falken tyres came in at second place. The fact that quality doesn’t need to be expensive was reflected in the other test categories. On a wet road surface, for example, the tyres from Falken achieved a floating speed of 78.0 km/h, a difference of just three km/h from the test winner, which is even superior to the winter tyres.

The results on a wet driving circuit were also impressive. The test winner in this category was only half a second ahead of the Falken Euroall Season AS210, which achieved a lap time of 12.09 seconds in this category. In addition to the handling under wet conditions, however, the tyres from Falken also achieved test results of ‘good’ in snowy and dry driving conditions.

Available from retailers since July 2018, the multi-talented tyre from Falken offers ease of use, comfort, safety and performance 365 days a year.
