Additionally it carries a model of tyres designed for high speed called Azenis. In New Zealand Falken is operated by major tyre chains in most regions of the country.
Falken tyres is a well-known brand of tyres for cars and light trucks. It belongs to the Japanese conglomerate Sumitomo Rubber Industries and its origins date back to 1983.
