Falken Azenis FK520 in tyre tests

All tyre tests where Falken Azenis FK520 was featured:
Automotorsport Summer tyre test 2024 235/55 R18
good
Ranked #7 of 8
Finishing 7th out of 8 competitors, the Falken Azenis FK520 still managed to secure a final rating of 'Good'. The tire was highly praised for its exceptional aquaplaning resistance and its manageable, albeit not very dynamic, driving behavior on dry surfaces. However, its performance was not without flaws. It faced limitations in braking and traction on wet surfaces, revealing an imbalanced driving dynamic marked by both oversteer and understeer under such conditions. Overall impressions suggest there's room for improvement in wet grip and driving stability. Remarkably, the tire stood out in one discipline, showcasing unbeatable performance in longitudal aquaplaning resistance, setting itself apart in this specific area.

highly recommended
Ranked #6 of 9
Securing the 6th position among 9 contenders, the Falken Azenis FK520 was distinguished with a "Highly Recommended" rating, highlighting its competence in a competitive field. Despite its age, this tire maintains a close performance gap with leading products, notably in dry conditions where its ability to communicate, provide solid grip, and demonstrate only moderate load change reactions stands out, with a tendency towards understeer being its main drawback. In wet conditions, the Falken Azenis FK520 excels, enabling decisive and precise direction changes with a pleasantly neutral balance on slalom courses and coming close to the top times of competitors such as Bridgestone, Conti, and Goodyear. Moreover, its fair pricing coupled with robust performance in both wet and dry scenarios underpins its status as a cost-effective option without significant weaknesses.
