Falken Tire, a subsidiary of Sumitomo Rubber Industries, was launched in Japan in 1983 and introduced to the North American market two years later. Falken was created as the flagship high-performance radial brand under Ohtsu Tire and Rubber. Decades later, Falken continues to focus on Ultra High Performance products and utilizing professional motorsports to further develop and improve passenger vehicle products for worldwide distribution.
Falken's current products range from the track-inspired, enthusiast-targeted Azenis series, to the maximum performance and luxury sport FK452. The award-winning, all-season performance Ziex ZE912 provides sure-footed grip in any weather conditions, while the S/TZ04 provides cutting-edge styling for today's light trucks and SUVs.
Future product development includes the expansion into the rugged all-terrain, winter performance, and premium touring categories.
