Falken Tyres has announced that it will be supplying tyres for the AUDI A3 TFSI e hybrid. The A3 will come fitted with ZIEX ZE310A ECORUN AO tyres in size - 205/55R16 94V XL.
The FALKEN ZIEX ZE310 ECORUN was awarded a rating of “Good” in the main AUTOBILD ALLRAD summer tyre test, where the editors were particularly impressed by its performance potential, wet handling and short braking distances, said the tyremaker in a release.
According to the company, the ZIEX ZE310 ECORUN is equipped with “Adaptive Constant Pressure” (ACP) technology, ensuring an even distribution of pressure across the contact patch. The ACP tread also improves the directional stability, ensures a uniform wear rate and reduces rolling resistance to maximise efficiency.
The tyre owes its improved traction and optimum water displacement as well as the associated excellent aqua-planing characteristics to the innovative four-groove design of the tyre tread, said Falken Tyre.
Applying its proven 4D NANO DESIGN methodology, allows its engineers to unlock the performance of new materials at the nano scale and develop a ground-breaking rubber compound for the ZIEX ZE310 ECORUN. The result is extended mileage, improved efficiency as well as a more comfortable ride to ensure its tyres are both cost and energy efficient, it further added.
“Mobility is undergoing a period of change with increased demand for tyres suitable for electric and hybrid vehicles. I am therefore very pleased that our products fulfil the demands for innovative and safe tyres for both OE and aftermarket,” says Christian Stolting, key account manager OE at Falken Tyre Europe.
The quality of the Falken tyre convinced AUDI, whose tyres carry the additional A designation in their name, which signifies an OE product at Falken, to select Falken. It follows previous agreements to supply the Q3 and A1 citycarver to the premium marque.
For the retrofit market, the ZIEX ZE310 ECORUN tyre is available in 124 sizes from 14 – 19 inches in the 35 – 70 series and is approved for speed ratings of H/V/W (210 – 270 km/h).
