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 A/S Tire Review

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 all-season class.

  1. Thanks for the information. Just bought a used set of these for my police issue crown Victoria and they are absolutely wonderful tires!

  2. This is really appreciated that you have presented this data over here, I love all the information shared. It will be very helpful to understand about falken sincera sn250 as reviews. Great post to share, thanks for publishing this here!!You must also check out Belairmitsi.co.nz it has some great insights too.

    1. Thanks for the information. Just bought a used set of these for my police issue crown Victoria and they are absolutely wonderful tires!

  3. Does Falken Tire still mfg the ST80 passenger car tire? The regional tire shop I am working with (Plaza Tire) is really pushing them but I don’t even see them listed on Falken’s website? Possibly discontinued and they’re trying to clear them from inventory?
    I think I’ll spend the extra money and get a brand name tire.
    2018 Sonata SEL size 215-55R17
    Currently have Cooper CS5 Ultra touring. After 35,000 miles have become extremely noisy at highway speeds. Its a pity because they still have 60% tread life.

    1. I agree I have rotated every 5k and have 28K and they do not have enough tread for winter, I might be able to get another 5 at most if it was summer but would be worried on wet roads. Tire drove and rode smoothly but do not match their tread life of 75K. I will not buy again!

  4. I’m not impressed with these tires wear is awful. Tires are 250/60r17 Falken sincera sn 250 AS. They are less than a year and a half old or 34,000 miles. It is all highway between Melbourne Florida and Orlando. They are on a 2017 Jeep patriot. Front tires are at .050 and rear are at .075. Yes they were rotated from front to rear.They are down to the wear bars. It rained last night had my hands full driving. I will not be buying another set!!

    1. Having a second set put on a 2008 Mini Cooper, 195/55 R16. 71,000 miles on the first set in 3 years and 3 months. 90 mile round trip commute with average speed around 65 mph. Minnesota weather, drive the truck about 3 days per year for the fwd. So yeah, these have been excellent tires for me.

  5. I have a 2006 Kia Sportage EX. Its a little larger than small, but smaller than medium size SUV. I has a 2WD and V6. It also has ABS, TCS. ESC & TPMS. The car hasn’t been driven that much. The current mileage on this 13 year car is 55400. I’ve been driving on Yokohama’s for last 7 years and although there’s still reasonably good tread left, (two 6 mm and one 5mm and one approximately 4.5 mm) there small cracks forming around the edge of some of the tires. One of the 6mm (was on the front drivers side) got punctured on the outer side wall and I having to replace them a few months earlier than I had budgeted for a few set. My tire size is 235, 60,16.

    I was wondering if these would work and if I could start with just 2 on the rear and move the good-ish 6mm and 5 mm to the front. I’d also have them aligned and balanced. If this is a rational course of action, I’d buy two more of these 3 months later. to have a complete set. Does this make any sense, to mix 2 of these my two of my Yokohamas?. Trying to stick within a very tight budget. Thanks so much for your feedback

  6. Falken Sincera SN250 I purchased four of this model and two of the four tires the steel belt started to separate after approx 20,000 mi. In my opinion by experience it is not a safe tire to have on any vehicle!!!

  7. A mechanic friend of mine ordered a set of Falken Sincera SN250 a/s p215/65/15 tires with a speed rating of T I think. Not sure but on the receipt there is a box with “code” and a T in it at cost 4 for $210.00 . Will these fit my 2002 Toyota Sienna XLE SUV? He said that it isn’t listed to fit it but gave me a long explanation (which I totally didn’t understand, lol) why they would and that the warranty was 80,000 miles. Also what speed are the T rated tires good up to? Thanks for any help.

    1. John, T-speed rated tires are good to 118 mph. The SN250 A/S will fit your Sienna in a 215/65R15, which is what Toyota lists as original equipment size.

  8. Considering these for my 2003 Subaru Outback… Wet surface ratings sound good but how about their performance in light and heavy snow?

    1. why don’t you read this entire article above and also some of the many other online reviews about them to find the info you seek, instead of being LAZY and hoping to read only the info that you think you want to read on them! durp!

    2. I have a set of these on my 2001 Toyota Highlander Limited. We just got a light snow here and I have to say that I am unimpressed. We only got about an inch of snow and it packed down pretty quickly before the road crews got on it. Breathe on the brake pedal and the anti-lock had to kick in almost immediately. Cornering traction was equally deplorable. I cannot recommend these tires for winter use. Not even a little.

      1. Jason knows how to answer. The article says the tires ” hold their own pretty well” which is rather vague answer to how the tires do in the snow. No reason to be insulting. Thank you Jason

    1. Why even mention your engine size?
      That has no relevance for choosing tires whatsoever, unless your trying to put street tires on a race car! LOL
      You just need to know what size tire is the correct one for YOUR vehicle (Your vehicles OEM size should be listed on the vehicle’s info plate, normally found around the drivers door jamb, or sometimes the plate is found on the firewall in the engine compartment) and just make sure you get tires that are the correct speed rating and weight rating for your vehicle, that is what matters, and go for tires with higher treadwear ratings.

      1. So smarmy!

        Your first two sentences contradict your second-to-last and third-to-last points.

        Obviously the engine size has tremendous bearing on the weight of the vehicle and its rated top speed.

        Which is to say, the Jaguar V6 models more than likely come with tires of different spec than Jaguar V8 models.

        Further, the engine detail is indicated on virtually every online tire selector.

        I am sure you know this, yet you attempted to respond in a condescending way.

        Maybe you need to get out of your emotions before you endeavour to help anybody else?

  9. 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?
