Engineered with the latest in tire technology and racing performance, the recently released Azenis FK453 is
Falken Tires newest ultra-high performance summer tire. Designed for drivers of luxury sport coupes and high-end
sedans, the FK453 is built to provide not only a high level of performance, but a more comfortable ride as
The tread sports an all-new High Polymer Silica Compound that is made to provide increased grip and traction for
drivers who enjoy more spirited driving. An asymmetrical tread pattern combines with larger outside shoulder blocks
to further provide additional cornering grip and better overall braking abilities. A side benefit to this is that
it also lowers road noise.
For driving on wet roads the tire's three circumferential grooves move water from under the tread, resulting in
less risk of hydroplaning and enhanced handling, as well as added confidence behind the wheel.
Inside the tread you'll find twin steel belts and a Rayon Construction, which helps the tire maintain its shape
and gives it added strength and stability at higher speeds.
Dry and wet surface traction are excellent
Cornering grip is very good
Comfort and overall ride quality is among best in its class

expectantcy. If you are driving a high-end sports car, this FK453 is a worthwhile option in new
