Falken has been approved as an original equipment supplier for the Porsche Macan. The SUV version of the Falken best-seller Azenis FK510 is fitted in two sizes: 235/60 R18 and 255/55 R18.

With a special carcass design, the Azenis FK510 SUV is said to provide precise and refined steering, comfort and well-balanced overall driving characteristics.

The tire maker’s Adaptive Constant Pressure (ACP) tread technology improves braking performance, directional stability and driving dynamics. Using SRI’s 4D Nano design technology, Falken engineers were able to develop a groundbreaking rubber compound for the FK510 series tires, which, in addition to providing good grip, also offers competitive wear resistance.

The Porsche Macan is geared toward sporty drivers that will make use of the full ability of the tire.

“With the introduction of these tires, we have continued to apply our strategy of consistently offering an extensive range in growing and profitable segments,” explained Christian Stolting, key account manager of original equipment at Falken Tyre Europe.

“Awarding us the factory fitment contract for the Porsche Macan doesn’t just confirm our strategy, but also speaks volumes for the quality of our tires. Supplying Porsche with our tires is a bit of an accolade for us.”
