Falken Sincera SN250 A/S Tire Review & Rating

The new for 2016 Falken Sincera SN250 A/S, touring all-season tire is built to replace the older SN211 A/S. This new model features some of the same technology that can be found on the current best-selling Pro G4 A/S, including Dynamic Range Technology for increased grip and 3D Canyon Sipes for traction in wet and winter conditions.

Falken uses their unique all-season tread compound, which has been formulated with higher amounts of silica, to not only deliver increased dry and wet traction, but to also provide extended treadwear. The tire’s asymmetric tread pattern sports Dynamic Range Technology to go with optimized tread block placement. The result is a smoother and more comfortable ride quality with enhanced cornering grip and stability.

Falken Sincera SN250 AS
Four circumferential grooves combine with the silica tread compound and 3D Canyon sipes for increased traction on wet streets and highways. This new technology is created to reduce the risk of hydroplaning and provide added safety at all speeds. The sipes along the tread provide biting edges that also help with traction on snow and ice, an area where this tire holds its own pretty well.

Falken offers 54 sizes in the SN250 AS that range from 14-18 inches, and come with either a T, H or V-speed rating. An 80K mile tread warranty is also included. The SN250 A/S is made to compete with other tires such as the Michelin Defender, Yokohama Avid Ascend and Continental ProContact among others.

Pros

  • Dependable dry and wet traction
  • Smooth comfortable ride that is very quiet on the highway
  • Treadlife looks good at this stage
  • Value for the money

Cons

  • Would like to see an increase in dry handling

Overall Thoughts

Replacing the popular SN211 A/S was not going to be easy, but Falken managed to pull it off. This new model is going to be one of the better tires in their lineup. It delivers excellent traction on dry or wet road surfaces, while also providing confident handling. You get a good feel for the road on this tire.

Ride comfort is very good and nearly on the same level as what you would find on tires like the Continental PureContact or Michelin Premier A/S. Treadlife looks to be longer lasting at this stage, although it is still a bit early to make a final assessment.

Our only potential negative with the SN250 A/S is higher speed handling and cornering. The softer sidewalls come into play here if you’re a more spirited driver, although for the majority it will not be an issue at all.

Overall, this new model provides solid performance for the lower value-price it carries. We rank it in the upper half of the touring all-season class.

I just purchased a vw alltrack. The tires are labeled Sincera and the size is 205/55R-17Vms. Is this the proper tire for this car?

Yes it sure is. Volkswagen chose it as O.E. a few months ago for the U.S. and Canada markets. You can read more here:
