Falken Tires announce it is fitting the new Audi A3 TFSI e hybrid with its ZIEX ZE310 Ecorun AO (205/55R16 94V XL).

Falken’s summer tire hasn’t just won over performance-oriented drivers, but also repeatedly convinced independent test organisations such as the Austrian Automobile and Touring Club and the Touring Club Switzerland of its abilities. These trusted associations have awarded the Falken ZIEX ZE310 ECORUN the “Recommended” rating, and the critics at ACE Lenkrad and ARBÖ came to the same conclusion.

The positive test results are the result of Falken’s extensive development and adoption of the latest tire technology. As one example, 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 tire 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 tire tread. 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 tires are both cost and energy efficient.

“Mobility is undergoing a period of change with increased demand for tires suitable for electric and hybrid vehicles. I am therefore very pleased that our products fulfil the demands for innovative and safe tires for both OE and aftermarket,” says Christian Stolting, key account manager OE at Falken Tire Europe.
