The new Falken AZENIS RS820 ultra-high-performance tyre has been specifically designed for sports cars.
Falken has just dropped a game-changer on the tarmac – the AZENIS RS820. Now, you might be wondering, what’s so special about a tyre? Well, get ready to be floored because this isn’t your average rubber; it’s an ultra-ultra-high-performance beast.
First things first, this rubber is not for your regular run-of-the-mill sedans. No sir, it’s for the heavy hitters, the speed demons. We’re talking sizes from 19 to 21 inches, cross-sections from 30 to 45, and a Y speed index.
In simple terms, these tyres can handle speeds of up to 300km/h. The Falken folks didn’t mess around; they took their motorsport knowledge from the Nurburgring and injected it right into these treads. It’s all about responsive handling, balanced grip on wet and dry roads, and that “feel” when you’re cruising down the highway or hugging corners on the track.
Now, how did they achieve these tyre goals? Let’s get technical. An asymmetric tread pattern with four grooves that run around the circumference. Why? They’re all about maximizing your contact with the road, and it shows. The AZENIS RS820 grips the tarmac like it’s hugging a long-lost friend.
But what about dry roads? Falken’s got that covered too. They’ve designed the shoulder of the tyre to give you better road contact, which translates into some seriously stable handling when things are bone-dry. Corners, you say? No problem. Circumferential tread ribs come into play. They offer stellar grip while you swing those turns. And if you’re the type who can’t resist pushing the pedal to the metal, these ribs ensure your car stays arrow straight.
But, here’s the best part – Falken didn’t forget about wet roads. The AZENIS RS820 has grooves that are wide and deep, designed to say “see ya” to water like a champ. Say goodbye to hydroplaning; this tyre means business.
Now, the who’s who of the car world are on board with this rubber. We’re talking Porsche 911, Audi R8, Aston Martin Vantage, BMW M5, Cupra Formentor, and Mercedes-Benz AMG GT. In the grand race of tyres, Falken’s AZENIS RS820 is leading the pack. It’s a tyre for those who demand top-tier performance, whether on the streets or the track.
