Falken Tires has been selected as original equipment supplier to the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta, providing fitments for both 16-inch as well as 17-inch with its Sincera SN250A All-Season tire. Sizes include 205/60R16 92H and 205/55R17 91H.
Falken began production in late March 2018 at parent company’s Sumitomo Rubber’s Thailand plant. Markets served for the new Jetta equipped with Falken-branded tires include all of North America, with 16-inch tires available this June. Cars with the 17-inch configuration Falken tires will be available by December 2018.
The symmetric, ribbed tread pattern of the Sincera SN250A All-Season is designed to create stiffer grooves that support each other for even wear, prolonging the life of the tire and making the Sincera perfect match to the driver who desires cruising comfort in any weather condition.
“Falken Tires welcomes the opportunity to join the Volkswagen family,” said David Colletti, Falken’s Vice President, Original Equipment. “The Jetta has been a sales leader for Volkswagen since the early 1980s, bringing many new owners into the fold. We’re proud as a tire brand to help reach this dynamic group of drivers and enthusiasts who will see how well the new Jetta responds on our Sincera All-Season tires.”
Though the Jetta sedan continues as Volkswagen’s best-selling vehicle, the designers and engineers at VW have created a brand new model for 2019. The car features a coupe-like body design, a 1.4-liter turbocharged engine that gets EPA estimated highway fuel economy of 40 mpg, and a choice of six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmissions. With significant features added as standard, along with a number of upscale options, the all-new Jetta makes an excellent choice in the compact-sedan segment.
