Audi’s compact SUV, the Q3, is the latest vehicle to be factory-fitted with Falken’s high performance tyres. Nimble in the city, agile on country roads and balanced on the motorway, the versatile family SUV will be fitted with the 215/65R17 99V derivative of Falken’s ZIEX ZE914 A EC AO pattern.
The Falken ZIEX ZE914 is now exclusively available for the original equipment sector where its lower rolling resistance, good handling and braking properties, even on wet roads, offer an ideal combination for today’s driver. With developments to its rubber compound and an optimised profile, engineers have created a tyre that blends safety and fuel economy, whilst retaining the driving characteristics that led to the tyre being ‘recommended’ by leading media tyre tests in Germany, including Auto-Motor-Sport magazine and ACE-Lenkrad.
Key OE account manager at Falken Tyre Europe GmbH, Christian Stolting proudly said, “The Audi engineers’ decision highlights once again the excellent quality and the capability of our tyres.”
