New silica and new model tyre. I have bought them a few days ago. Very silent. Most silent tyres I had the last 20 years. Nice handling. Cheaper than most other brands. (30euro cheaper than dunlop and 50 euro cheaper than michelin) Euro label - C A A 67db for 195 65 15
So, I was a bit sceptical about buying these as they are a fairly new tyre to the market and couldn’t find many reviews on them. I went in anyway as they’re a fair amount cheaper than PS’s and the shocking Potenza’s that came on my car from the showroom. After a few hundred miles I can confirm that these tyres are brilliant. Feedback is rather good, car felt a little numb to start with but I don’t know if that was just in my head. The levels of grip are decent in the dry and in damp conditions. I haven’t driven in properly wet conditions as of yet, so can’t comment on that. Neither can I comment on wear as they’re only a few hundred miles old. Don’t hesitate to buy these over other more expensive tyres. You won’t be disappointed.
Just had set fitted and hate them. Horribly noisy. Never had such noisy tyres. Shall not buy again and wish that I could get them replaced. Lots of feedback for Falken is from petrol heads running them on track days. This is not what the average road user wants. I had run Kumho for years and they are a good value, safe, durable, quiet and comfortable tyre. Do not buy Falken.
