FALKEN “ZIEX ZE001 A/S” Selected as OE for the Latest Subaru Levorg Layback

Sumitomo Rubber Industries, Ltd. have announced that they have begun supplying their high-performance FALKEN “ZIEX ZE001 A/S” all-season tyres to Subaru for use as factory standard tyres on their latest Levorg Layback, unveiled in September 2023.

The latest Levorg Layback has been developed for the Japanese market by Subaru to be unique and stand out from their broad lineup of SUVs.

The FALKEN “ZIEX ZE001 A/S” all-season tyres, which have also been used on Subaru’s SUV Crosstrek, provide all-around high performance, combining outstanding steering stability with excellent fuel efficiency on both dry roads and snow. Consumer interest in all-season tyres has been steadily growing in recent years, as these tyres can be used year-round and can handle any type of weather,  meaning that you never have to worry about sudden snow. Taking full advantage of their cutting-edge simulation technology, they have adopted an innovative new tread pattern that optimises the distribution of ribs as well and lateral grooves to achieve unmatched road ability on snow. At the same time, with the adoption of an advanced new rubber compound, the FALKEN “ZIEX ZE001 A/S” all-season tyres also achieve a significant reduction in rolling resistance while maintaining the same high level of grip performance expected from FALKEN.
