Tire Care Safety

Proper Inflation & Fuel Economy

Ensure maximum performance and a long life from your tires by checking the air pressures at least once a month and set them to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended pressure(s) listed on the vehicle’s tire placard or in your owner’s manual. Always check and adjust your air pressure when your tires are cold, preferably first thing in the morning before driving. Never release air pressure from tires when they are hot. Wait until the tires cool down and recheck, adding air or releasing as required. Falken endorses the use of nitrogen in your tires because it helps your tires maintain optimal pressure for longer periods of time and reduces the amount of moisture inside of the tire and wheel assembly.

*Some plus size applications may require different air pressure(s) than what is listed on your vehicle’s placard or owner’s manual. In this case, please consult your tire dealer or Falken Tire for proper inflation pressure(s).

Rotation & Wear

Falken recommends rotating your tires at least every 5,000 miles (8,046 km) and periodically inspecting your tires to make sure they are free of road hazards (such as nails, screws, large wood splinters, etc.) that might penetrate your tires causing them to lose air pressure and to ensure they are wearing evenly. Common irregular wear patterns are: misalignment wear, where the tire shows excessive outer or inner tread wear. Improper inflation: tires that are under inflated will exhibit both shoulders of the tread wearing down at a faster rate, while overinflated tires will have the center tread area wearing down at a faster rate. Tire sidewalls should also be inspected for cuts, snags, bruises, and weather cracking. If any of these noted conditions are present during inspection, we recommend returning to your servicing tire dealer to be corrected to ensure long tire life.

Plus Sizing Tires

Plus sizing your wheels and tires is one of the easiest ways to dramatically change the looks of your vehicle. Falken recommends no more than a 3% +/- change in the replacement tires’ overall diameter, so as to remain as close to O.E. specifications as possible and keep your vehicle’s odometer, speedometer, and anti-lock braking system (ABS) functioning correctly, as well as keeping sufficient ground clearance. On sport utility vehicles (SUV) and light trucks, any increase in tire overall diameter and the lifting of vehicle suspension to accommodate the larger tire size, may result in changes of vehicle ride height which will result in changes in rollover characteristics, braking distances, and handling. The plus sized tire’s load index must also be equal to or greater than the O.E. tires’ load index or be able to effectively carry load at a PSI listed on the Load and Inflation Table. Falken Tire also recommends that the speed rating of the replacement tires must always equal or exceed the original equipped tires.

Tire Replacement

Falken recommends replacing your tires when the tread wears down to the wear bars (2/32”), which are located across the tread in several locations around the tire. If only two tires are being replaced, the two new tires should always be installed on the rear of the vehicle to aid in preventing your vehicle from hydroplaning, even if your car is front wheel drive. It’s always recommended to have your new tires balanced during installation, and alignment checked if the previous tires show irregular wear. Tires that have been in use for 5 years or more should continue to be inspected by a qualified tire specialist, at least annually. It is recommended that any tires 10 years old or older from the date of manufacture, including spare tires, be replaced with new tires as a precaution even if such tires appear serviceable and even if they have not reached the legal worn out limit at 2/32”. In the event that you get a flat tire while driving, it is best to find a nearby, safe place to stop and install your spare tire or call a tow truck. The less distance that you drive on your low or flat tire, the better chances your tire has of being repairable. Once you are able to get to your local servicing tire dealer, have them dismount the tire from the rim and thoroughly inspect the inside of the tire. If the interior of the tire, inside and/or outside sidewall are compromised from driving on the flat or underinflated tire for too long, the tire should be replaced. If the tire is deemed repairable after inspection, it should be repaired with a plug and patch or plug/patch combination to correctly repair the tire. Never use a rope type plug, as this does not correctly seal the tire, and may lead to tire failure.

 

FALKEN TIRES PASSENGER CAR AND LIGHT TRUCK LIMITED WARRANTY 

For questions: technical@falkentire.com                                                    

Effective January 1, 2018
 
I. Tires Covered by this Warranty: 
This limited warranty applies to FALKEN brand steel-belted radial passenger car and selected light truck tires bearing the complete description and serial number as required by the DOT. This warranty applies to all Falken branded PCR & LTR products stamped with a 2018 production date or newer. Tires produced before 2018 are subject to previous published warranties. This warranty is effective only to tires for which claims are made within six years of date of production, based on the tire DOT serial number.
 
II. What is Warranted and for How Long: 
    A. Material and Workmanship Warranty: 
      1. Every FALKEN brand radial tire is warranted against defects in material and workmanship for the usable life of the original tread within six years of date of production (for 2017 produced and newer) based on the tire DOT serial number. The usable life of the original tread ends at the appearance of the treadwear out indicators at 2/32" (1.6mm) remaining tread depth.
      2. If a tire becomes unserviceable due to such defect within the first 2/32" (1.6mm) of wear; it will be replaced free of charge with a comparable FALKEN tire. 
      3. After the first 2/32" (1.6mm) wear, a prorated adjustment credit to the customer will be given based on the percentage of remaining usable tread depth, down to the remaining 2/32" (1.6mm) wear bars, at which point no credit is due. 
      4. OUT-OF-ROUND or OUT-OF-BALANCE claims will be accepted for adjustment only during the first 1/32" (0.8mm) of the original tread depth, and tires will be replaced free of charge with comparable FALKEN tires. A set of four (4) tires from the same vehicle will not be accepted  for out-of-round or out-of-balance claims. 
    B. Limited Tread Life Warranty: 
        Most FALKEN brand tires come with a tread life warranty. Prorated adjustment credit will be given based on percentage of mileage not achieved on tires. FALKEN brand radial tires listed below are warranted to achieve the following mileages before becoming worn out at 2/32 (1.6mm) remaining tread depth:
 
 
This tread life warranty is applicable only for normal highway use when all of the owners obligations listed below in Section IV are met. Warranty does not apply to any FALKEN designs not listed. 
     1. All eligible tread life warranty claims are based on the tire being worn down evenly to the wear bars at 2/32" (1.6mm). 
     2. Any tire with measured tread difference of 2/32" (1.6mm) or more across the tread (main circumferential tread grooves) will be considered irregularly worn and rejected. 
     3. Any tires submitted with 5/35" (4.0mm) or more remaining tread depths will be rejected for tread life warranty claim. 
     4. Any tires submitted with 3/32" to 4/32" (2.4mm–3.2mm) remaining mileage and tread depth to be achieved will be projected and prorated as if the tire was worn down to 2/32" (1.6mm).
     5. All submitted mileage claims are to include proof of tire rotation; either copy of warranty card with completed rotations listed, or copies of the customers invoice showing rotation mileage and vehicle information will be accepted. 
 
III. What is Not Covered (Exclusions): 
   A. Unserviceability due to road hazard damages (cuts, snags, punctures, bruises, impact breaks, etc.), improper repair technique or materials, improper inflation, overload, irregular wear, wheel imbalance, defective vehicle mechanical components (brakes, suspension, wheels, etc),     improper suspension alignment, accident, fire, acts of God, chemical damage, damage from chain use, racing, off-road use, runflat, improper installation, vandalism, or abuse. 
   B. Tires on any vehicle registered and normally used outside the 50 United States, Puerto Rico, and Canada. 
   C. Tires branded “NA” or having the DOT number removed. 
   D. Tires presented for warranty claim by other than the original purchaser, or tires that were transferred to another vehicle from the one upon which they were originally installed, regardless of by whom. This warranty is not transferable. 
   E. Any tires whose failure is caused by any previous damages or repairs. 
   F. Any cost of tire repair or retreading is not covered by this warranty and will be solely borne by the tire owner. 
   G. The tread life warranty is not applicable if tires are used in commercial service, or determined at our discretion, have premature or irregular wear due to abusive service or defective vehicle conditions. Abusive service includes off-road use, excessive mountain road driving, racing,   or passenger car tires on pick-up, RV, or utility vehicles. 
   H. Tread life warranty does not apply to vehicles with staggered tire fitments. 
    I. Tires that have tread siping or otherwise modified from the original design. 
   J. Tires that are worn beyond the last two thirty-seconds of an inch (2/32”/1.6mm) of original tread depth. Beyond this point, the tire is considered worn out and has delivered its usable tread life and there is no manufacturer’s warranty regardless of its age or mileage.
 
IV. Owners Obligations: 
At the time of purchase, the tire(s) must be properly installed, balanced, and air pressure set to the vehicle manufacturer’s specifications if original equipment size, or at an air pressure adequate to carry the vehicle load if a different replacement size. At least monthly owner must check tire air pressure with a gauge and inflate to recommended cold PSI level. Do not rely on car servicers to perform the checks. Tires must be rotated at least every 5,000 miles, or earlier if unequal wear is occurring, and proof of compliance must be recorded on the warranty card. Owner must have tires rebalanced if vibration is experienced, and alignment must be checked if unequal or rapid wear is occurring, or when scheduled by the vehicle maker.

                                       WARRANTY ADJUSTMENT POLICY AND PROCEDURES                                       

Effective January 1, 2018
 
Tires sold by SUMITOMO RUBBER NORTH AMERICA, INC. (dba) FALKEN TIRE CORPORATION (“FTC”) may be submitted for warranty adjustment by dealers only within six (6) years from the DOT number date (for 2018 produced and newer) of production, using the following guidelines.
 
Claim Forms: 
Each tire submitted by dealers must be listed on and accompanied by an FTC Warranty Adjustment Claim Form. Up to ten tires may be reported per form. Forms are serial numbered for control and later credit memo reference, and must not be copied for multiple use. Tires received by FTC without claim forms will not be processed for adjustment. Call 800-723-2553 or contact your FTC sales representative to request forms. 
 
After fully completing the form with all required information, send the original white form in an envelope taped to one of the tires, with the shipment to the FTC warehouse shown on the next page that services your area. Detach and keep the yellow copy for your records. 
 
Tire Claim Number and Damage Marking: 
Each tire must be clearly marked with tire crayon or grease pen with the claim form serial and line number that relates to that tire. (Example “525806-1” for claim form 525806, line 1). If the FTC inspector has trouble identifying a claim, processing delay of your credit may occur. 
 
If possible mark the site of the damage or problem area with chalk. If FTC cannot find the problem, you may not get the credit you are seeking. 
 
Returning Warranty Tires to FTC Warehouses: 
Dealer or Distributor locations with warranty return tires must contact their servicing FTC Warehouse Manager for return approval and shipping instructions. 
 
Locations within FTC’s local delivery areas may have warranty adjustment tires picked up by FTC trucks if so serviced, or you may bring the tires to the warehouse when will-calling an order. In any case, customers must contact their servicing FTC warehouse Manager for approval before making a return. 
 
Customers may also ship adjustment tires to their servicing FTC warehouse. FTC must authorize all returns prior to shipment. Freight collect shipments without prior authorization will not be accepted. 
 
On shipping documents identify the cargo as: “Class 50 – Scrap Tire Having No Value”. 
 
FTC will pay freight cost on all adjustment tires subject to the following limitations: 
 
(a) Shipments of 1,000 lbs. or more: Freight Prepaid 
(b) Shipments of less than 1,000 lbs.: One (1) freight prepaid shipment every 60 days per location. 
 
For general estimation purposes, the following weights may be used in load calculations: 
Passenger – 20 lbs. each Light Truck – 45 lbs. each Medium Truck – 100 lbs. each 

 

WARRANTY ADJUSTMENT PERCENTAGE CALCULATION:

For tread life warranty, calculate the miles received divided by the warranty level, then subtract 1. That will give you percentage credit due customer. 

Use the chart and data below to calculate the credit due to customers presenting tires for workmanship / materials warranty claim consideration. The chart is based on a standard wear-out depth of 2/32" (1.6mm), when the wear bars appear, and the legal wear limit in most states. 
 
Charge the customer the replacement tire price minus the percentage shown below. The percentages have been rounded to the nearest whole number. If you wish, the exact percentage can be calculated using the following formula: 
 
ADJ% = (measured tread depth – 2/32) divided by (original depth – 2/32) 
 
Example: A tire with original depth of 11/32" is worn to 6/32" remaining. The calculation is: (6-2) / (11-2) = 4 / 9 = 0.444, or 44.4% (chart shows 45%) 
 
Adjustment Percentage Due to Customer at 2/32" (1.6mm) wear-out. 
 
 
 
 

WARRANTY ADJUSTMENT POLICY AND PROCEDURES - CONTINUED

 
Effective January 1, 2018
 
Dealers in each region must ship warranty adjustment tires to: 
 
 
Warranty adjustment returns from dealers located outside the continental United States may contact 800-723-2553 for specific FTC adjustment processing policy and procedures. 
 
Tread Life Warranty Claim Documentation Requirements
TO RECEIVE PROPER CREDIT FOR ADJUSTMENTS BASED ON PUBLISHED FALKEN TREAD LIFE WARRANTIES, ALL REQUIRED SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION (I.E., COMPLETED WARRANTY PAMPHLETS AND TIRE ROTATION SERVICE RECORDS) MUST BE SUBMITTED WITH CLAIM FORMS. CLAIMS RECEIVED WITHOUT DOCUMENTATION MAY BE DEEMED AS NON-ADJUSTABLE AND MAY NOT BE PROCESSED FOR ADJUSTMENT CREDIT. 
 
How Credits Are Calculated: 
Warranted failure adjustments credits are prorated based on the amount of usable tread depth remaining on the tire. Tires are deemed worn out at the appearance of the treadwear bars across grooves, at 2/32" (1.6mm) remaining tread depth and no credit will be issued thereafter. 
 
Tread life warranty adjustment credits are prorated based on the percentage of unachieved miles divided by the particular model warranted miles. 
 
Prorated credit percentage is then calculated based on the dealer’s current buying price in our system. 
 
Non-Uniformity Claim Adjustments: 
Non-uniformity, including out-of-round, or out-of-balance adjustments will only be accepted during the first 1/32" (0.8mm) treadwear. A claim for non-uniformity for a set of four (4) tires from the same vehicle will not be accepted. 
 
What is Not Considered for Adjustment: 
Tires will not be accepted for adjustment credit if they have been previously repaired, have sustained irregular wear due to improper inflation, misalignment, improper vehicle application, have sustained operational abuse, or have been damaged during mounting or demounting.
 
Non-Adjustable Tire Notification and Returns
Dealers will be notified in writing of those tires that have been inspected and are not considered for adjustment. Due to limited scrap tire storage space, non-adjustable tires will be destroyed 20 days from the date of dealer notification, unless the dealer had made prior disposition arrangements. Tires requested by the dealer to be returned will be shipped back at dealer expense.

ADDITIONAL SAFETY WARNINGS


 

Tire Mix Usage: Never mix tires of different size or construction and/or type on an axle, except for temporary use as a spare tire. Always refer to vehicle owner’s manual for proper tire fitments.

Winter Tires: FALKEN recommends all four tires be replaced when installing snow tires. Never use just two snow tires – It could lead to adverse handling or loss of control, which could cause serious injury or death.

Speed Rating: The speed capability of the replacement tire(s) must always equal or exceed the original equipment tires. FALKEN does not recommend the use of mixing different speed ratings on a vehicle. This can cause poor handling and unpredictable steering. If the tire(s) have been repaired, damaged, or modified from its original condition, then the tire(s) should be treated as a non-speed rated tire.

Tire Repairs: If the interior of the tire, inside and/or outside sidewall are compromised from driving on the flat or underinflated tire for too long, the tire should be replaced. If the tire is deemed repairable after dismounting and inspection of interior is performed, it should be repaired with a plug and patch or plug/patch combination to correctly repair the tire. Never use a rope type plug, as this does not correctly seal the tire, and may lead to tire failure.

For Winter Tires: It is acceptable to use winter tires with a lower speed rating then the OE tires, but the vehicle maximum speed must be reduced to correspond with the new tires speed rating. FALKEN recommends reducing driving speed when driving in adverse weather conditions.

Tire Load: The load carrying capacity of the replacement tire(s) must always equal or exceed the carrying capacity of the original equipment tires. When changing tire sizes – commonly called “Plus Sizing”– please consult the vehicle’s tire information placard for original load carrying capacity and air pressures. Always ensure that the replacement tires' load capacity is equal to or above the original tire to ensure safe operation.

Tire Aging: FALKEN recommends tires which have been in use for 6 years or more should be inspected regularly by a qualified tire specialist. Plus any tire that is 10 years or older from the date of manufacture, including spare tires should be replaced with new tires regardless of appearance, even if the tires have not reached the legal wear out limit.

Tire Inflation / Overloading: Serious injury or death may result from tire underinflation or overloading. Follow owner’s manual and the vehicle’s tire information placard for proper inflation pressures and load carrying capacities. Never exceed tire maximum air pressure as listed on tire’s sidewall.

Tire Overall Diameter: If you choose a replacement tire that exceeds the vehicle design criteria range for tire diameter, you may be changing the original handling characteristics of the vehicle. In some cases, vehicle systems such as brakes, suspensions and alignment may be affected. On sport utility vehicles (SUV) and light trucks, any increase in tire overall diameter, and the lifting of vehicle suspension to accommodate the larger size, may result in changes of vehicle ride height and resultant changes in rollover characteristics, braking distances, and handling. You must ensure any tire size and suspension changes allow for safe operating control under all driving conditions.

 
 
 

FALKEN MEDIUM TRUCK RADIAL TIRE LIMITED WARRANTY

Effective March 1, 2017
 
1. Tires Covered by this Warranty:
This warranty applies to FALKEN brand medium truck radial (MTR) tires bearing a complete description as required by the US DOT, including full DOT serial number. This warranty applies to tires manufactured on or after October 1, 2016. Tires manufactured prior to that date are subject to the preceding warranty policy. Conditions and coverage are subject to change at any time without prior notice.
 
2. What is Warranted and for How Long:
       A. Material and Workmanship Warranty
Every FALKEN MTR tire is warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for the life of the original usable tread up to 2/32" (1.6 mm) of the remaining depth or for 6 years from the date of manufacture, whichever comes first. If a tire becomes unserviceable     during the first 2/32" (1.6 mm) of wear of the original tread, it will be replaced with a comparable FALKEN MTR tire free of charge for the tire, or will be allowed 100% credit. Thereafter, the amount of credit allowed will be prorated based on the percentage of usable tread worn, and will be computed by multiplying the FALKEN MTR dealer’s current selling price for a new equivalent FALKEN MTR tire by the percentage of usable remaining tread depth. In any case, the amount credited shall not be less than the first casing warranty amount described later in Section B. The costs for mounting, balancing, service, applicable taxes, F.E.T., etc., are not covered under this warranty and are payable by the user. Out-of-balance or out-of-round warranty claims will be accepted only during the first 2/32" (1.6 mm) of tread wear.
 
       B. Casing Allowance Policy for FALKEN Steel Radial MTR Tires. FALKEN MTR tires are warranted to achieve two retreads.
First Casing Warranty: If for covered tire conditions, a FALKEN MTR tire at the end of its initial original tread life at 2/32" (1.6 mm) tread depth fails to pass inspection for retread, or if it fails to complete its first retread life, the user will be credited with a first casing allowance shown in the schedule below.
Second Casing Warranty: If for covered tire conditions a FALKEN MTR tire at the end of its first retread life at 2/32" (1.6 mm) tread depth fails to pass inspection for a second retread, or if it fails to complete its second retread life, the user will be credited with a second casing allowance shown in the schedule below.

FALKEN TIRES ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT LIMITED WARRANTY AND TIRE CARE GUIDE

Congratulations!

Your new vehicle is fitted with high performance and high quality Falken tires.

In order to guarantee that you receive the best performance and quality from your new Falken tires, we recommend that you read and follow all of the maintenance and safety tips provided in this document. We also suggest that you have your Falken tires periodically inspected and maintained by a qualified tire service professional. 

 

A) Tire Care and Recommendations

PROPER INFLATION and FUEL ECONOMY

Ensure maximum performance and a long life from your tires by checking the air pressures at least once a month and set them to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended pressure(s) listed on the vehicle’s tire placard or in your owner’s manual. Always check and adjust your air pressure when your tires are cold, preferably first thing in the morning before driving. Never release air pressure from tires when they are hot. Wait until the tires cool down and recheck, adding air or releasing as required. Falken endorses the use of nitrogen in your tires because it helps your tires maintain optimal pressure for longer periods of time and reduces the amount of moisture inside of the tire and wheel assembly. 
*Some plus size applications may require different air pressure(s) than what is listed on your vehicle’s placard or owner’s manual. In this case, please consult your tire dealer or Falken Tire for proper inflation pressure(s).
 
TIRE INFLATION PRESSURE
 
Tires need to be properly inflated to effectively operate and perform as intended. Tires carry the weight of the vehicle, passengers, and cargo as well as bear the forces of braking, accelerating, and turning. The vehicle manufacturer sets the inflation pressures for the original equipment tires that are on your vehicle. 
Driving with improperly inflated tires is dangerous. An under inflated tire will generate excessive heat build-up that will cause damage to the internal structure and inner liner of the tire. Besides tire damage, improper tire inflation pressures can also affect your vehicle’s ride and handling, tire tread wear, and fuel economy. It is recommended to always keep all of your tires, including the spare, at the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended inflation pressures and be sure to check the air pressure monthly and before going on long road trips or carrying extra weight in your vehicle.

Your vehicle’s tire placard and/or owner’s manual will list the cold inflation pressure(s) for your vehicle’s original equipment tires, including the spare. The placard can be found on the driver’s side door or door jamb area. If you have questions about understanding your vehicle’s tire placard, please refer to your owner’s manual or ask a qualified tire service professional.
 
Example of what your tire placard looks like:
 
 
 
CHECKING YOUR TIRE’S AIR PRESSURE
 
Checking your air pressure at least once a month is vital to help your tires perform properly and help you get the best gas mileage possible. Tires can lose up to 7 kPa (1 PSI) per month under normal conditions and lose up to 7 kPa (1 PSI) per every 9°C (16°F) drop in temperature. Here are some simple steps on how to check the air pressures in your tires:
 
1) Remove the valve stem cap.
2) Place the end of the tire gauge firmly against the tire’s valve stem.
3) Read the current pressure displayed on the gauge that is currently in the tire.
4) Increase pressure at this time (if needed) and recheck with your tire gauge.
5) Replace the valve stem cap.
6) Repeat until all of your tires have been checked and adjusted accordingly.
 
TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS)
A tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is a safety system found in most vehicles manufactured after 2005. There are pressure sensing transmitters mounted inside of each tire that sends readings to the central computer (ECU) in your vehicle. The TPMS system will alert you when one or more of your tires are underinflated by 25% or more by turning on a warning light on your vehicle’s dashboard or heads up display (HUD) screen. This means that one or more of your tires may have a low-pressure condition. Follow the instructions in your owner’s manual.
 
ROTATION and WEAR
 
Falken recommends rotating your tires at least every 8,000km (5,000 miles) and periodically inspecting your tires to make sure they are free of road hazards (such as nails, screws, large wood splinters, etc.) that might penetrate your tires causing them to lose air pressure and to ensure they are wearing evenly. Common irregular wear patterns are: misalignment wear, where the tire shows excessive outer or inner tread wear. Tire sidewalls should also be inspected for cuts, snags, bruises, and weather cracking. If any of these noted conditions are present during inspection, we recommend returning to your servicing tire dealer to be corrected to ensure long tire life. ***Never include a temporary spare tire in your rotation pattern***
Rotation patterns bases on what type of drive your vehicle is:
 
 
TIRE REPLACEMENT
 
Falken recommends replacing your tires when the tread wears down to the wear bars at 1.6mm (2/32 of an inch), which are located across the tread in several locations around the tire. If only two tires are being replaced, the two new tires should always be installed on the rear of the vehicle to aid in preventing your vehicle from hydroplaning, even if your car is front wheel drive. It’s always recommended to have your new tires balanced during installation, and alignment checked if the previous tires show and irregular wear. Tires that have been in use for 6 (six) years or more should continue to be inspected by a qualified tire specialist, at least annually. It is recommended that any tires 10 (ten) years old or older from the date of manufacture, including spare tires, be replaced with new tires as a precaution even if such tires appear serviceable and even if they have not reached the legal worn out limit at 1.6mm (2/32 of an inch). 
 
TIRE REPAIRS
 
In the event that you get a flat tire while driving, it is best to find a nearby, safe place to stop and install your spare tire or call a tow truck. The less distance that you drive on your low or flat tire, the better chances your tire has of being repairable. Once you are able to get to your local servicing tire dealer, have them dismount the tire from the rim and thoroughly inspect the inside of the tire. It is important to know the difference between a proper tire repair and an improper one because it can be critical to you and your vehicle’s safety. An improper repair could pose a safety threat to you and your family and could also affect your tire’s manufacturer warranty. Here are some tips in determining if your damaged tire can be properly repaired or not:
 
- Always have the tire removed from the wheel and inspected before any repair is performed.
- Tires with less than 1.6mm (2/32 of an inch) of tread should NOT be repaired.
- Never repair a tire with a puncture larger than 6mm (1/4 of an inch).
- Repairs should be limited to the tread area only.
- Repairs cannot overlap one another.
- A plug and patch or plug/patch combo should be used to effectively repair a tire puncture.
- If anything seems questionable at any time during the repair process, ask your service advisor for more details and/or call the tire manufacturer to make sure the tire’s warranty isn’t being voided.
 

TIRE MIX USAGE

 

SAFETY WARNING

Never mix tires of different size or construction and/or type on any axle. (Except for temporary use as a spare tire.) Always refer to the vehicle’s owner manual for proper tire fitments.

 

TIRE SPEED RATINGS

 

Falken recommends replacing your tire(s) with the same speed rating as the original tires equipped on your vehicle. 

It is okay to use a lower speed rated tire when using winter tires. However, speeds should be reduced to match the tires new “maximum” speed capability.

Any tire that is repaired, damaged, abused, altered from its original state or retreaded voids the speed rating on that particular tire and should be considered a non-speed rated tire.

 

SAFETY WARNING

Falken does not recommend the use of mixing different speed ratings on a vehicle. This can cause poor handling and unpredictable steering. 

HIGH PERFORMANCE, LOW ASPECT RATIO TIRES

 

Various new vehicles come equipped with high performance and/or low aspect ratio tires from the factory. These tires generally provide increased vehicle handling characteristics, but may also have engineering performance trade-offs related with their designs. Low aspect ratio tires have reduced sidewall heights and may be more vulnerable to damage from road hazards, potholes, and other objects, like curbs. Your vehicle’s wheels are susceptible to these same dangers as well. Some vehicles may be originally equipped with high performance tires that are designed for warmer weather use reducing traction in colder, winter weather conditions. High performance tires also pose the possibility of wearing more quickly, giving a stiffer ride, and producing louder noise than standard all-season tires during operation. Refer to your vehicle owner’s manual, tire information placard, or qualified tire service professional for more information about these kinds of tires.

 

WINTER TIRES

 

Falken recommends all four tires be replaced when replacing your original equipment tires and installing winter tires for the winter months.

 

SAFETY WARNING

Never use just two winter tires. It could lead to adverse handling, loss of control, which could cause serious injury or death.

 

 

STORING YOUR TIRES

 

When storing your tires for any extended period of time, be sure to thoroughly clean your tires with a tire brush, soap, and water to remove any dirt, salt, and brake dust from the tires. If you are storing your tires still mounted on the wheels, use a wheel brush and approved wheel cleaner to clean your wheels. Then dry the wheels and tires with a towel and allow them to fully dry. DO NOT apply any tire dressings while storing your tires. Tire compounds are made to resist weather cracking and ozone damage. Place each clean and dry tire in an airtight plastic bag and seal the bag with tape to help reduce oil evaporation. Store your tires out of direct sunlight and somewhere that is well shielded from the elements, like a climate-controlled room or dry basement. Storing the tires in a garage or shed usually exposes the tires to a wide range of temperatures as well as precipitation and humidity. Keep the tires away from sources that emit ozone like electric motors that use contact brushes, furnaces, sump pumps, etc. Although tires will still age regardless of how they are stored, these precautions will help slow the aging process and reduce the damage to your tires.

 

SPEED LIMITS

 

SAFETY WARNING

Operating your vehicle in excess of the posted speed limit or the maximum speed allotted by driving conditions has the potential to be dangerous. Higher driving speeds create excessive heat buildup in a tire, leading to a possible tire failure. 

 

TIRE SPINNING

 

SAFETY WARNING

Spinning a tire to get a stuck vehicle out of mud, ice, snow, sand, or wet grass can be potentially dangerous. A spinning tire at a speedometer reading above 55 km/h (35 mph) can be capable of disintegrating a tire with explosive force. In some circumstances, a tire may be spinning at twice the speed displayed on the speedometer. This can cause serious injury or death to you, a passenger, or bystander. Never spin a tire above 55 km/h (35 mph).

Do not rely on car servicers to perform the checks. The tires should be rotated at least every 8,000km (5,000 miles) or earlier if uneven wear is occurring, and proof of maintenance records should be kept. The owner(s) should have the tires rebalanced if vibration is experienced, and the vehicle’s alignment should be checked if uneven or rapid wear is occurring, or when suggested by the vehicle’s manufacturer.
All warranty claims must be presented to an authorized Falken dealer or participating car dealership. The owner(s) must present any supporting maintenance records and documentation necessary to help determine if the tire(s) in question are deemed covered by the limited warranty or not.
 
4. LEGAL RIGHTS
 
All implied warranties, including warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose shall be limited in duration to the above period. To the extent permitted by law, Falken Tire Corporation shall not be responsible for incidental or consequential damages, such as loss of use of the tire or the vehicle on which it is used, inconvenience, or commercial loss, some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights, which vary from state to state. This is the only express warranty applicable to Falken brand tires and supersedes the terms of any previous warranty. Falken neither assumes nor authorizes anyone to make or assume for it any other warranty. 
 

C) Understanding Your Tires

TIRE SPEED SYMBOLS
 
Tires that are speed-rated are identified by the following letter symbols: Q, S, T, U, H, V, W, Y, (Y), or (ZR). The Speed Rating’s Symbol can be found as a part of the tire size designation (ex: 215/65HR16) or after the load index immediately following the tire size designation (ex: 215/65R16 97H). The Speed Rating’s Symbol indicates the maximum speed that a tire can handle when properly inflated and loaded.
 
NOTE: ** For tires with speed symbols W and Y, ZR may or may not also appear within the size designation. For tires with a maximum speed above 186 MPH a ZR must appear in the size designation. 
 
DATE OF TIRE MANUFACTURE
 
The date that a tire was manufactured can be determined by examining the last 4 digits of the 12 digit DOT serial code, which is found on at least one sidewall of a tire. For tires that were produced after the year 2000, the last 4 digits of the serial code will identify the week and the year that the tire was manufactured. If the last 4 digits in the DOT serial code were to read “0517” it would mean that the tire was manufactured the 5th week of 2017. If you are uncertain, check with a qualified tire service professional to be sure.

DOT Symbol and DOT Serial Code
 
The “DOT” symbol claims that the tire conforms to all applicable US Department of Transportation motor vehicle safety standards for tires. The identification/serial number follows the “DOT” symbol. Here is an example of a DOT serial code:
 
A) DOT Symbol - DOT
B) Manufacturer Plant Code - R8
C) Tire Size Code - 20
D) Tire Manufacturer’s Code - 4M4R
E) Week of Production (01-52) - 05
F) Year of Production (the last two digits of the year) - 17
 
TIRE SIDEWALL LABELING
 
 
MAX LOAD AND INFLATION
The maximum load and inflation pressure is marked on the tire sidewall in English and metric units.
 
PLY COMPOSITION AND MATERIALS
The number of plies and their generic composition of cord materials in the sidewall and tread areas can be found on at least one sidewall of a tire.
 

RADIAL MARKING
A radial ply tire will have the word “radial” marked on at least one sidewall. An “R” found in the tire size marking also refers to the tire being a radial ply tire. 

UNIFORM TIRE QUALITY GRADING SYSTEM (UTQG)
The Uniform Tire Quality Grading Standards (UTQG) were created to help you make an informed decision when purchasing passenger car tires by providing relative information about a tire’s tread wear, traction, and temperature characteristics. Here is a breakdown of the different categories that the UTQG grades:
 
TREAD WEAR
The tread wear grade is a comparative rating based on the wear rate of the tire when tested under controlled conditions on a specified government test course. For example, a tire graded 150 would wear one and a half (1½) times as well on the government course as a tire graded 100. The relative performance of tires depends upon the actual conditions of their use, however, and may depart significantly from the norm due to variations in driving habits, service practices, and differences in road characteristics and climate.
 
TRACTION
The traction grades, from highest to lowest, are AA, A, B and C. Those grades represent the tire’s ability to stop on wet pavement as measured under controlled conditions on specific government test surfaces of asphalt and concrete. A tire marked C may have poor traction performance. WARNING: The traction grades assigned to this tire is based on straight ahead braking traction tests, and does not include acceleration, cornering, hydroplaning, or peak traction characteristics. 
 
TEMPERATURE
The temperature grades are A (the highest), B, and C, representing the tire’s resistance to the generation of heat and its ability to dissipate heat when tested under controlled conditions or on a specified indoor laboratory test wheel. Sustained high temperature can cause the material of the tire to degenerate and reduce in tire life, and excessive temperature can lead to sudden tire failure. The grade C corresponds to a level of performance which all passenger car tires must meet under the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No.109. Grades B and A represent higher levels of performance on the laboratory test wheel than minimum required by law. WARNING: The temperature grade for each tire is established for a tire that is properly inflated and not overloaded. Excessive speed, under-inflation, or excessive loading either separately or in combination, can cause heat buildup and possible tire failure.
