FALKEN tyre ZIEX ZE914 ECORUN on the winners’ podium in ACE Lenkrad’s summer tyre tests

FALKEN's ZIEX ZE914 ECORUN tyre scooped third place in the summer tyre tests held by German auto magazine ACE Lenkrad (issue 3/2017), receiving the rating “Recommended". The magazine tested a total of eleven summer tyres in size 215/60R17 at a test track in the south of France. The tyres were fitted to an Opel Mokka SUV for the tests. Testers were primarily won over by the subjective feel of the FALKEN tyre in wet conditions and by its low level of drive-by noise; in these categories, marked out of 10, the ZIEX ZE914 ECORUN scored 8 and 9 respectively. Four out of the eleven tyres tested, including FALKEN's entry, delivered wet braking distances of under 30 metres. Out of the three winning tyres, the ZIEX ZE914 ECORUN received the highest marks in the “Rating, Price" category. “We're delighted about this great rating", enthuses Andreas Giese, Manager Product Planning at Falken Tyre Europe, about the test. “The ZIEX ZE914 ECORUN has once again demonstrated that we can produce an exceptional balance between performance, quality and outstanding value for money." The magazine ACE Lenkrad joined forces with German technical inspection association GTUE and its Austrian partner association ABROE to perform its evaluations of eleven tyre brands, using an Opel Mokka for the tests.
