Falken tyres OE on VW T-Roc
Two Falken tyres have been approved as original equipment on the new Volkswagen T-Roc. Following Falken’s approval as OEM supplier in August, the Azenis FK453CC and the Ziex ZE914A Ecorun will be fitted to the compact SUV in various sizes.
“After the Volkswagen Tiguan and the Seat Ateca, the Volkswagen T-Roc continues the portfolio of SUVs for which we are OEM tyre supplier,” comments Christian Stolting, key account manager OE at Falken Tyre Europe. “Volkswagen’s choice of Falken delivers further proof of our tyres’ high level of performance. We are delighted that Volkswagen has extended its confidence in us to this high-growth sector, and look forward to further partnerships in the future.”
The Falken Ziex ZE914A is approved for the T-Roc in sizes 205/60R16 92V and 215/55R17 94V, plus a rolling-resistance-optimised model in 215/60R16 99V XL, and the Falken Azenis FK453CC in size 215/50R18 92W. The tyres are manufactured at Sumitomo Rubber Industries’ plant in Thailand.
