The Falken Tyre brand, distributed in South Africa by Stamford Tyres, has announced the introduction of three more product ranges to the South African Market – The Ziex ZE310, Wildpeak MT 0/1 and the Wildpeak AT Trail.
These tyres will be launched in the market in mid-October and November 2022 and will cater for a wide spectrum of car enthusiasts – from high-performance cars to adventure seekers who explore the toughest terrains
FOR THE ADVENTURERS
The Wildpeak A/T Trail is a popular choice for cross-over owners globally. It has also earned the original equipment position on the 2023 Mazda CX-50 Meridian Edition Model in the US. The tyre is designed to match the crossover vehicle’s off-road capabilities and on-road performance. It is a perfect tyre for the majority of the South African market who live in the city and often go past the end of the pavement to explore the wild. The tyre features two-ply polyester construction and a rugged upper sidewall, along with an optimized tread design that makes it versatile.
FOR THE TOUGH OFF-ROADERS
The Wildpeak M/T 01 is an aggressive SUV / 4×4 tyre built to handle all types of off-road terrain. The M/T 01 is the tyre of choice for 4×4 enthusiasts embarking on overland adventures to commercial users venturing in to tough, rural terrain regularly. The tyre features Falken’s proprietary three-ply DURASPEC Sidewall Technology developed to sustain the most off beaten track with confidence.
FOR THE PERFORMANCE SEEKER
The Multi Award Winning Ziex ZE310 Ecorun, which is a successor to the popular Falken Ziex ZE914 Ecorun tyre, has been designed for premium and high-end vehicles. These tyres offer superior traction for high performance but fare equally well in terms of ride comfort and tread life Falken shares that its engineering team also employed Advanced 4 Nano Design technology throughout their development operations to produce a compound offering maximum mileage and efficiency plus improved running characteristics. According to Falken, this new tread has enabled a 30 per cent increase in wear life compared to the predecessor model.
“The ZE310 Ecorun has received remarkable reviews across the glob and has won numerous awards from independent testing organisations sites such as Autobild and Auto Motor and Sport, and it gives us great excitement to be introducing the product in SA.” Says Jose Romero, Stamford Tyres GM. “The ZE310R can be seen as a “baby” FK510 as it uses the same Adaptive Constant Pressure tread pattern design and Advanced 4D Nano Design compound technology.” He adds.
