Ranked #9 of 9
In its evaluation, the Falken EuroWinter HS02 Pro displayed a performance that placed it in a challenging position among its competitors. Despite this, the tire showed commendable attributes, specifically excelling in dry braking, snow cornering, and snow handling, showcasing its capabilities in critical winter conditions. However, it faced criticism for its relatively low grip level on snow, leading to a perception of sluggish snow handling. On wet surfaces, it exhibited neutral to understeering behavior, coupled with a deficient aquaplaning resistance in wet curves, which limited its handling reserves. Moreover, the tire was noted for its high rolling resistance. While it managed to secure good wet traction, the overall feedback underlined the need for improvement in several areas to enhance its competitiveness in adverse weather conditions.

Automotorsport Winter tyre test 2023 255/45 R20
satisfactory
Ranked #7 of 7
In a competitive winter automotorsport event, the Falken EuroWinter HS02 Pro found itself in a challenging position, securing the 7th spot out of 7 contenders. This outcome earned the tire a final rating of 'Satisfactory.' Testers acknowledged its strengths, noting good grip and a largely safe, understeering-neutral driving dynamic in wet conditions. It also proved to be very active and quick in dry corners, with very good shock absorption qualities. However, concerns were raised regarding its sensitivity to load changes on snow and its inadequate performance reserves, which are critical for a winter tire. Furthermore, the tire demonstrated a narrow limit in wet conditions, low protection against aquaplaning, sluggish steering response, and an unstable rear in fast corners. These shortcomings, particularly its weak performance on snow, led to the tire being marked down a grade. Despite its efforts, the Falken EuroWinter HS02 Pro could not secure top marks in any tested discipline, showcasing the importance of balanced performance across all winter driving conditions.

Testers noted their stable handling on both wet and dry roads, in addition to good riding comfort. However, these tires were criticized for their only average lateral grip on snow, limited lifespan, and high rolling resistance. One standout performance area was in wet circle cornering, where the tires excelled, indicating their strength in maintaining grip during cornering under wet conditions. Despite the criticisms, this proficiency in wet conditions is noteworthy.
