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.
Road noise is reduced on the Sincera through the use of Falken's Computer-Optimized Five-Phase Pitch Variation
in the tread of the tire. Many drivers have made mention about how quiet this model is due to this technology.
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
There is a 65,000 mile tread warranty included on this model.
Dry surface traction and cornering grip are good
Tire rides comfortably and road noise is minimal
Very inexpensive tire
Treadlife is a big issue
Handling on snow could be improved
The SN-828 provides decent ride quality and all-season handling to go with a quiet ride. It does nothing
spectacularly well, but is an average touring tire. Sadly, we can't give it high marks due to the tread life being
a major issue. Far too many drivers have complained about a much lower than expected lifespan to ignore.
Overall, we would recommend other models like the Michelin Defender, Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season
and the Hankook Optimo H727 among others that would make a better choice than the 828. That said, if tread life is
not a big concern, then this model is one of the lowest priced tires you will find.
The SN-828 comes with a 65,000 treadlife warranty. Tire uniformity is guaranteed for the first 2/32 inch of
Materials and workmanship are warranted for 5-years and include free replacement during the first year or first
2/32 inch of wear. The amount is prorated for the remaining period or until the final 2/32 inch of tread depth on
