Sumitomo Rubber Australia (SRAU) has launched a new range of Falken tyres for trucks and buses. The Falken truck tyre update includes a selection of large and small/medium truck tyres for highway regional/interstate and mixed on/off road applications.
“We’re excited to be reintroducing ourselves to the Australian trucking industry with no less than 24 truck tyres changes – and we have more in the pipeline,” said Ken Furuhama, Managing Director of SRAU.
Mick Small, SRAU’s Technical Service Manager, is pleased about the new products; “Whilst we designed the new products with abrasive Australian roads in mind, the take-up of some products has been impressive, with BI850 being the standout. Tipper-and-dog and livestock operators have quickly adopted it, with great results coming from the 22.2mm deep open-traction pattern and mild cut/chip resistant compound.”
SRAU says it has conducted extensive testing in Australian conditions with fleets. Mount Gambier-based Raymond Scott Transport is also very pleased with the results Falken tyres have been producing, as Managing Director Ray Scott explained: “The Falken RI128 super-single steer gets much better life, with a sharper price point, so it is much more competitive than the major brands we’ve run in the past. What’s most impressive is that all Falken truck tyres are made in Japan, so you’re buying top quality.”
