Falken Tires Pass the Ultimate Tests on a Track and Off-Road Course


– When the rubber
meets the road, you wanna make sure that
you have quality tires to get the best performance
out of your vehicle. Smooth ride, fuel efficiency. Today we’re here
with Falken Tires, home of the Ziex CT60. Let’s check it out
and burn some rubber. (hip hop beats)
Hey Nick. – Chelsy, how are you? – Good, how are you? – Thanks for coming out. – Thanks for having me. So, this looks great. What are we doing today? – Thanks. Well, I hear you’re quite
the impressive CUV driver so we have three stations
that you get to experience. Here, is gonna be the CUV
with our new CT60 tire. We also have an
autocross and road course that you’ll be driving today. Why don’t you grab the wheel
and let’s go for a spin. This is gonna be the
wet braking exercise. So this is our brand
new Ziex CT60 CUV tire. Specific for CUVs for safety. You’ll see as much as 10
feet shorter braking distance in wet conditions,
60 to 0, of our tire versus a lot of our competitors. So, why don’t you give it a run. Accelerate to 60 and
slam on the brakes. – Let’s do it. – Alright. (engine revving)
Good job. – [Chelsy] That’s
actually really great. – So let’s switch cars. You’re gonna do the
CT60 on the road course. So you get to
experience how it feels to go through different
scenarios including lane changes at near highway
speeds, how it feels going around corners,
and some braking. So let’s go ahead and
jump in this BMW here and test out the Azenis
FK510s on the autocross. Well, one thing you
really wanna notice is how quiet they are. We wanted it to be a
comfortable sounding tire. – I was really able to see
the performance in the tires. – Yeah, you really did great
on the autocross course. – Thank you. So, are we gonna
go off-road next? – Yeah. Let’s go ahead and hop into
Jeep and let’s head up the hill. – Let’s do it. – Alright. We actually do develop
a lot of our tires, especially the MT in
racing applications. So, we spend a lot
of time working with teams that run
King of the Hammers, which is a popular off-road race
out here in Southern California. And just had to make a very
strong tire that could take anything you throw at it. – All of the rock climbing
and the, yeah. – [Nick] Exactly. – This has been a rush today. – [Nick] You’re doing
great out there. – Thank you. There you have it guys. We were over at Falken
today doing the training. And then we headed
over to the speed track and we were able to drive
the cars pretty fast. Catch you on the next ride. (hip hop beats)
