Japanese tyre manufacturer, Falken Tyre India has launched its new-generation standard series tyres – Sincera SN832i – catering to the car segment in India. Available in 27 different sizes ranging from 12 inches to 16 inches, these tyres are specially designed and developed for small and midsize hatchbacks, sedans, MUVs and Compact SUVs.
Falken tyres claim that the new ‘Sincera SN832i’ tyres come equipped with a new tread compound and deeper tread depth to ensure good mileage and long life. The new range of tyres also features an asymmetric tread pattern with wide, straight grooves. It is further claimed that the new 4 rib pattern design features wide, straight, and lateral grooves provide good wet grip.
Satoru Ushida, managing director of Falken Tyre India said, “Through our latest range of tyres, we are hoping to deliver best-in-class driving experiences to Indian vehicle owners at value-driven prices. The integration of top-notch features – improved durability, better wet grip, and, of course, the silent pitch variation - will address all the consumers’ requirements and give them the reason to reward their cars with SN 832i. We believe it is a top-notch innovation for the Indian market and will help to transform the country’s tyre industry in its own, unique manner.”
According to an official statement from Falken Tyre India, The Sincera series tyres have integrated a ‘Silent Pitch Variation’ that enables the tyres to adopt pitch arrangement and decrease the lug groove volume, thereby reducing the overall pattern noise. The brand has also leveraged dual layer nylon band and high rigidity steel belts coupled with 2 ply sidewall to improve stability, longitudinal rigidity and overall durability of the tyres.
Falken Tyre India (FTI) is a joint venture of Sumitomo Rubber Asia (Tyre) (a subsidiary of Sumitomo Rubber Industries) and Stamford Tyres Corporation (One of the world’s largest tyre distributors) in Singapore.
