Falken Tyre (Falken), the European affiliate of Japanese
Sumitomo Rubber Group, will equip Audi’s Q3 compact SUV with its ZIEX ZE914A
EcoRun tyres. The latest family SUV will be fitted with the 215/65R17-99V
derivative of the ZIEX ZE914A tyres, that offers low rolling resistance and
good handling and braking properties, even on wet roads.
According to Christian Stolting, Falken’s OE Account Manager, Audi’s decision highlights the excellent quality and the capability of the company’s tyres– Falken’s engineers have developed and optimised its rubber compound to create a tyre that blends safety and fuel economy, while retaining the driving characteristics that led to the tyre being ‘recommended’ by renowned media tyre tests in Germany.
