Rims Not Included

The Falken Espia EPZ tire is an excellent winter performance tire that provides grip on ice and deep snow, as well as on dry cold roads.

The canyon sipes are specially designed and coupled with a micro-glass fiber rubber compound to allow this tire to grip  the ice and handle snowy road conditions. This is a non-studded alternative to the traditional winter tire.

Channeling water away from the contact patch in wet conditions while increasing hydroplaning resistance is accomplished through the circumferential grooves while the dual purpose tread patter offers a wider center tread area to enhance performance of ice breaking while increasing the contact patch on the road.

Additional traction in snow and ice is optimized through the 3D canyon siping technology, which helps create additional biting edges. The shoulder tread area is designed with wide lateral grooves to grab snow in the harshest conditions while the shoulder wave sipe offers stronger resistance to wandering.

Sidewall BSW
This describes the sidewall appearance. Examples include Black Sidewall, White Sidewall, and White Letters.
Load Index 88
The load index (LI) is a 2 or 3 digit number that corrolates to the maximum amount of weight the tire can carry. For example, a tire with a load index of 87 indicates that the tire can carry a maximim load of 1,201 lbs. In the case of our example the 87 identifies the tires ability to carry a maximum of 1,201 lbs. So 4 tires will carry a maximum of 4,804 lbs. Refer to your vehicle owner's manual for the recommended minimim Load Index. It is not recommended to install tires with a lower Load Index. By doing so, this could cause your tires to be overloaded thus potentially causing a blowout.
Speed Rating Q
Speed Ratings (SR) are based on laboratory tests and indicates the maximum speed the tire can achieve. These tests are based on limited time trials. Higher speed rating tires typically will yield better handling capabilities, but may often result in lower mileage. Refer to your vehicle owner's manual for the recommended minimum Speed Rating. It is not recommended to install a tire with a lower speed rating as it could affect the handling of your vehicle. It is important to note that speed ratings only apply to tires that have not been damaged, altered, under-inflated or overloaded. Additionally, most tire manufacturers maintain that a tire that has been cut or punctured no longer retains the tire manufacturer's original speed rating, even after being repaired because the tire manufacturer can't control the quality of the repair.
Ply Rating Not Available
Ply Rating is related to the max load capacity. This value can be defined with a letter or number. The higher the number/letter, the higher the load capacity.
UTQG Not Available
To help consumers evaluate their tires, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) created the Uniform Tire Quality Grading System (UTQG). The UTQG rates tires are rated on their tread-wear, traction performance, and temperature resistance. The grade for each of these can be found on the sidewall of your tire (except for winter tires and certain light truck tires). Click here for more information.
Max Single Load(lbs) 1235 The maximum load this tire will support. Remember to multiply this number by the number of tires installed on your vehicle to get the maximum carrying capacity. This number is directly related to the Load Index.
Max Single Air Pressure(PSI) 44 The maximum air pressure this tire will support. This does not represent the amount of air pressure your tires should have at all times. Consult with your owner's manual to determine the best air pressure you should use for your vehicle.
Tread Depth 12.0 The amount of tread on the tire. Once the tire is worn to 2/32nds, it is considered fully used and should be replaced at that time. Most tires will have tire indicators in the grooves of the tire to help you determine when the tires are worn down to 2/32nds.
Rim Width Range 5.0-7.0 The approved wheel rim width range this tire will support.
Measured Rim Width 6.0 The recommended wheel width as recommended by the tire manufacturer to get the best wear us performance for this tire.
Section Width 7.8 The measurement from sidewall to sidewall.
Tread Width 6.3 The measurement from one side of the tread to the other side of the tread.
Overall Diameter 24.3 The height of the tire when fully inflated.
