Falken Tyres owner Sumitomo Rubber Industries, announced that they have began supplying Falken AZENIS FK510 tires to Toyota Motor Corporation for use as factory standard tires on their new model MIRAI, a fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV), which went on sale this December.
The new model MIRAI not only achieves improved fuel economy compared with previous FCEVs, but is also designed to provide a more refined, comfortable ride as well as a quieter drive, said Falken Tyres in a release.
The AZENIS FK510 tires provide superior stability and maneuverability performance when driving at higher speeds thanks to an asymmetrical tread pattern that optimizes the distribution of pressure throughout the contact footprint, as well as a rounder profile design for greater sidewall flexibility, added the tyre maker.

Falken said that the asymmetrical pattern of the tyre distributes contact pressure more evenly throughout the surface of the tread, assisting the driver in handling the vehicle while helping to bring out the vehicle’s full performance potential.
MIRAI FCEV run on hydrogen, a fuel that can be produced from various energy sources and contributes to preservation of the global environment and reinforcing energy security. Toyota believes they are the ultimate eco-cars, offering long cruising ranges with a short refuelling time and generating zero emissions. The first-generation Mirai was launched in 2014.
