The AZENIS FK453 is the latest generation of Falken´s steadfast Ultra High Performance tire, available in a wide array of diameters, from 17-inch to 22-inch, along with staggered widths, making this tire versatile, resourceful, dynamic, and powerful. In addition, FK453 features the latest developments in noise-absorption technology, and incorporates a high silica compound that presents better dry and wet grip. The multiple nylon-reinforced layers allow for better high-speed stability, an important asset based on the driver´s exacting demands.
A NEW SILICA COMPOUND for better dry and wet grip. SPECIAL "FALKEN FEATURE" F-ARROW IDENTITY brand new sideway that enhances the overall look of the tire. THREE WIDE CIRCUMFERENTIAL GROOVES effectively evacuate water and significantly improve hydroplaning resistance for outstanding wet handling. MULTIPLE NYLON REINFORCED LAYERS designed for better high speed stability, plus new optimized casing profile offers better contact with the road for increased handling, particularly in the area of lane change maneuvers. ASYMMETRIC TREAD DESIGN with large outside shoulder blocks, provide enhanced cornering and better braking traction while reducing tire noise.
Quite impressed thus far with this tire. For a car driven daily on public roads it appears to be an excellent balance of handling and comfort.
Dry Grip - very good grip in dry. Turn-in is a little vague compared to premium performance tires but grip is progressive and predictable. No tendency to tram-line noted.
Wet Grip/ - have about 250km in rain and the tire seems competent with no tendency to aquaplane at highway speed and more than acceptable cornering grip.
Comfort and Noise are where this tire shines - the tire is significantly quieter and less harsh over expansion joints and cracks than other tires I have used. I suspect a softer sidewall that contributes to this and results in the slightly less sharp handling.
No snow experience nor will it ever have it.
