Making use of FALKEN’s patented Dimple Sidewall technology, FALKEN have endowed their latest high performance summer tyre with the ability to continue on the road for a distance of at least 80 kilometres at 80km/h. Additionally, there is no need to carry a spare wheel, which reduces the payload, saving fuel and freeing up boot space. The ZIEX ZE914 ECORUN Runflat affords users all the characteristics of the standard ZE914 – exceptional levels of performance, comfort and safety – while providing the additional peace of mind that only a runflat tyre can provide.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Outstanding grip in dry and wet conditions
Low drive-by noise
Improved rolling resistance
Tailor-made for sporty drivers
With SPECIAL EYES® tyre wear indicators**
Patented dimples in the sidewall improve the efficiency of heat dissipation
The RUNFLAT* technology of these tyres dramatically improves road safety by ensuring that the vehicle does not lose control even after a blow-out. Their ‘limp-home’ function allows drivers to continue on the road for a distance of at least 80 kilometres at 80 km/h. In addition, there is no need to carry a spare wheel. This reduces the payload, saving fuel and freeing up space in the boot.
Falken tyres with the ECORUN label feature reduced rolling resistance. By reducing energy loss through friction, they save on fuel consumption - good for the environment, and good for your budget.
* Only mount on vehicles with TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System). ** See page 58.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
