JM Far East Inc., exclusive Philippine distributor of Falken Tires has just launched the new Azenis RT615K+ and RT660 ultra-high performance tires aimed at tuners, performance, and track enthusiasts. The 200-Treadwear tire lineup was officially launched at the Clark International Speedway with over 100 performance car enthusiasts from different parts of the Philippines in attendance.
"With more and more automakers offering high-performance vehicles in the country and increasing customer requests, we felt the time was right to bring in our new Azenis UHP tires for enthusiasts to make the most out of their performance cars," said Mr. Winston Manabat, president of JM Far East.
Derived from the original competition-winning RT615K, the PLUS encompasses a digitally-engineered, nanotech-formulated compound enhancement for superior grip and excellent handling. The Azenis RT615K+ is aimed at owners of performance compacts, sports coupes, sports sedans and muscle cars who look for a tire that can deliver confidence-inspiring performance on the track, while also having a high-tension carcass construction that provides added durability for street use.
The RT615K+ combines high-speed handling and stability, superb cornering response, extreme performance traction, and extended tread life for the street into one tire.
For even more demanding drivers, the Azenis RT660 is the only choice for drivers chasing the ultimate lap time. Falken’s new rigid carcass construction enhances steering response and vehicle stability, while the motorsports-inspired tread compound provides unmatched grip for those who prioritize peak performance above all else. The RT660 is also street-legal, saving drivers the hassle of swapping tires before each track day.
The RT660 is geared towards enthusiasts who aim for the very best as it promises track-ready handling and stability, predictable performance, maximum traction, and options for prolonged tread life.
"Our new Azenis RT615K+ and RT660 tires will allow enthusiasts to get the most out of their cars and enjoy their vehicles, even more, both on and off the race tracks," Manabat added.
The new Falken Azenis RT615k+ and RT660 tires are offered in popular sizes ranging from 15 to 19-inch rim sizes and are now available for pre-order at all authorized Falken Tires dealers.
Another highlight of the event is the attempt by Luis Gono, 2014 Toyota Vios Cup and 2018 Formula V1 Champion, to set a new lap time record with his Toyota GR Yaris using Falken’s Azenis RT660 tires. After doing hot laps around the CIS, Luis succeeded in posting the best time of 2:08.267 minutes, breaking his personal track records.
