The Falken Eurowinter HS449 tire is a high performance tire which raises the bar for winter driving control by combining snow, ice and cold road grip. The tread is enriched with silica for balanced performance across all these conditions. Snow evacuation and grip in slushy and wet conditions is optimized by the directional tread design featuring an optimal amount of void ratio. Another feature designed into this tire is the 3D canyon siping. This contributes to the excellent grip and wet road performance.
