SRNA to Launch New Consumer Tires, Truck Tire in 2022

Sept. 16, 2021

Sumitomo Rubber North America Inc. (SRNA) is planning three new product launches during 2022, SRNA officials told Falken Tire dealers this week during a meeting in Aspen, Colo.

The company is introducing a new ultra-high performance all-season tire, the Falken FK460 A/S; the Falken WildPeak R/T01 light truck tire; and a new, closed-shoulder drive medium truck tire, the Falken BI837.

The Falken FK 460 A/S is designed for sport CUV fitments and is due to be launched in June 2022 in 63 sizes, starting with 205/50ZR17 and ranging through 285/35ZR22. 

"This tire will be the core tire for us, moving forward," says Rick Brennan, SRNA vice president of marketing.

The Falken WildPeak R/T01 will launch in March 2022 and will be positioned between the brand's WildPeak A/T3W and WildPeak M/T products. It will be available in 50 sizes.

The third new tire to launch is the Falken BI837 medium truck drive tire. Designed to provide greater resistance to stone retention than its predecessor, the tire will launch during the second half of 2022 in four sizes.
