Falken Tire, a Sumitomo Rubber subsidiary, announced that it will supply original equipment tires for the new Mercedes-Benz G-Class.
Mercedes Benz’s new luxury SUV had its world premiere at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in January 2018, is fitted with Falken Wildpeak A/T AT3WA and Euroall Season AS210A in size 265/60R18 in its initial equipment.
Developed for use all year round, the Euroall Season AS210A is primarily suited to on-road driving. With its M+S label and the snowflake symbol, you can also use the tire in winter in snowy and icy conditions. “High aquaplaning safety, good grip on wet surfaces, very quiet and an acceptable price” are the Falken Euroall Season AS200’s strengths which convinced the Autobild Allrad testers, who awarded the tire with the test grade “good” (07.2016).
Christian Stolting, Key Account Manager for Falken Tyre Europe, commented on the G-Class order: “For us, the approval to fit the new G-Class with Falken ex works is a very special seal of quality and speaks for our recognized and constantly high performance in development as well as in production. Of course, we will continue to expand our collaboration with Mercedes-Benz.”
“Being original equipment on the new G-Class – this gives our Falken brand an additional boost. Our tires have already proven their performance in various off-road rallies. It doesn’t matter what terrain – we are already looking forward to seeing the new G-Class in action,” adds Markus Bögner, Managing Director and COO.
