falken azenis fk510 tire review

The Falken Azenis FK510 is an ultra high-performance summer tire and is a great option for sports cars, performance sedans, and even performance crossovers and SUVs, like vehicles from the Mercedes-AMG lineup. Before we get into the details on the Azenis FK510, it must be made clear that this is a summer tire, therefore it should never be used in cold or freezing temperatures, and especially not in ice or snow.

The Azenis FK510 is part of Falken’s renowned FK family of tires. The FK510 uses new high-performance compounds that have been optimized at a molecular level thanks to 4D Nano Design. The result is enhanced wear and better wet weather traction. Contributing to improved handling and stability are hybrid undertread materials that use both aramid and nylon materials.

This tire excels in providing dry handling and wet performance, sacrificing a bit of ride comfort and fuel efficiency. It is surprisingly quiet for a performance tire. Tread life is decent, but can vary significantly based on your vehicle and driving habits. As a result, the Falken Azenis FK510 does not have a treadwear warranty.

The Falken Azenis FK510 was a proven top performer in Tire Rack’s testing.
