Launching the new Ziex STZ05
LAS VEGAS (November 1, 2012) – Falken Tire, a leader in high performance tires for cars and trucks, will introduce the latest generation of its popular all-season performance tire for luxury SUVs and light trucks, the ZIEX S/TZ05 on December 3, 2012.
The new tire, which comes with a 50,000-mile warranty, features the latest in tread compound and construction technology designed specifically for SUV and half-ton (½-ton) sport light truck applications. Key to the character of the S/TZ05 is its advanced M+S all-season, non-directional tread design, giving the customer the ability to rotate the tire in all directions, thus optimizing its tread life.
“Falken Tire is dedicated to maximizing the value and longevity of our tires to benefit our customers,” declared Andrew Hoit, Falken Vice President of Marketing. “Our technology enables us to expand the capabilities of our products, with those advantages passed along to our customer.”
The new S/TZ05 features double-tapered tread blocks and staggered shoulder lug grooves, facilitating a smooth, quiet and dynamic tire and sporting a state-of-the-art look.
The all-seasonality characteristic of the S/TZ05 comes from its double taper-cut tread blocks that intensify noise reduction and water evacuation. The solid center rib improves lateral handling and highway stability, while the wide shoulder blocks increase tread stiffness and performance and provide for an even wear throughout the tire’s life. Available from 20-inch to 24-inch applications, S/TZ05 covers many of today’s popular SUV and LT wheel fitments.
“Despite the fluctuating gas prices today, people continue to drive their SUVs and light trucks as they are such a staple in our everyday transportation needs,” added Hoit, “and Falken is poised to meet our customers’ requirements when they wish to replace their tires.”
The ZIEX S/TZ05 will be introduced at the Falken Tire booth during the annual SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
