A First for a Falken-Brand Tire: OE Fitment on a Nissan

The Falken Ziex ZE001 A/S has been selected as one of the original equipment tires for the 2016 Nissan Rogue.

“The Falken Ziex ZE001 A/S is our first fitment with Nissan and we couldn’t be more thrilled to debut with the Nissan Rogue,” says Rick Brennan, vice president of marketing for Sumitomo Rubber North America Inc. “Our high performance Ziex ZE001 provides a well-rounded performance capability that matches perfectly with the versatility of the Nissan Rogue. We look forward to future opportunities to fit more Nissan vehicles.”

Sumitomo says the Falken Ziex ZE001 A/S offers stability and handling in all types of dry, wet and even light snow conditions. The Falken Ziex ZE001 A/S was designed to complement the Nissan Rogue, offering a low-noise, comfortable riding experience on all road surfaces and conditions.

“The Nissan Rogue is the perfect vehicle to display Falken Tires’ engineering prowess, versatile handling, every-day dependability and advanced safety developments,” says Brennan.

The Falken Ziex ZE001 A/S, sized 225/60R18, features a unique tread design that aides in keeping noise at a minimum as well as moving water from under the tread, reducing hydroplaning and maximizing grip on wet surfaces.
