Falken Sincera SN-828 Tire Review & Rating

The Sincera SN-828 from Falken is an economical all-season touring tire that is designed for drivers of all types of coupes, sedans and minivans. In fact, this tire is one of the lower priced tires available today.

The tread compound on the SN-828 tire is silica enhanced and designed to improve traction on wet road surfaces. It is also built to improve durability and resist abrasions to the tread. A continuous center rib increases stability on dry pavement, while the outer shoulder blocks provide increased cornering performance.

Sincera SN 828 by Falken Tires

Falken uses a computer-optimized Five-Phase Pitch Variation in the tread of the tire in hopes of removing unwanted road noise and creating a more comfortable ride. Unfortunately, this technology doesn’t make the ride as quiet as it should be.

Inside the tread are twin steel belts that provide added strength and stability at higher speeds. They also create more even tread wear. Falken has also added special tire rotation indicators in the tread of the tire. They are unique depressions in the flanks of the tread that change their shape from a circle to a square, letting you know the tires are due to be rotated. Then, when the square is no longer visable, it's time for a second tire rotation.

There is a 65,000 mile tread warranty included on this model.


  • Dry surface traction and cornering grip are ok
  • Decent ride quality
  • Very inexpensive tire 


  • Treadlife is a big issue
  • Wet grip
  • Winter performance is well below average

Overall Thoughts

We feel the SN-828 is one of those all-season tires that simply needs to be retired. We rank it in the bottom tier of its class for a variety of reasons. Wet traction and performance on snow and ice need major improvements to get up to par with other modes in this category. Beyond that, treadlife is a major issue. Far too many drivers have complained about a much lower than expected lifespan to ignore.

The one good thing this tire does have going for it is a cheap price. But then when you factor in the performance for the money spent, even that doesn't give it an overall recommendation. We would suggest taking a look at other models like the Continental TrueContact, General Altimax RT43 and the Falken Pro G4 A/S as much better options than the SN828.
