The Azenis FK510 marks a milestone in Falken Tyre’s history. Having won accolades around the world, the tyre was launched in Australia earlier this year with big claims. Claims which have been validated with the FK510 winning the 2018 Wheels Tyre Test.
“Being the flagship ultra-high performance tyre of Falken, it had to be packed with features,” explains William Ng, Marketing Manager Falken Tyres Australia. “The engineers did a superb job at developing our best ever passenger car tyre and the FK510 backs up everything it says it would do.”
The Azenis FK510 was engineered to perform and boasts of technology rarely seen in a street tyre. The Adaptive Constant Pressure pattern design, hybrid undertread cap ply and 4D Nano Design all translate to real world performance and superior dry handling. The Falken felt “immediately grippy on the slalom, with almost no sliding whatsoever,” declared Renato Loberto, test driver for the Wheels Tyre Test.
The other features of the FK510 – switchback siping and variable sipe depth – offers outstanding wet weather performance. “Incredible grip in wet cornering; almost no sliding at all doing 73km/h,” commented Renato, “even though it only needed to complete the exercise at 60km/h.”
Nathan Ponchard of Wheels Magazine, goes on to further explain; “the worst performing tyre in the wet took more than four metres longer to stop than our braking champion, the Falken Azenis FK510.”
Having placed no less than a top three finish in all of the five components of the test, “the Falken Azenis FK510 is one of the strongest performers we’ve ever had in a Tyre Test,” Nathan Ponchard elaborates. “Super-quick and consistent, in both lateral G and stopwatch results, combined with competitive levels of road noise, sounds like the sort of tyre we’d happily recommend to anyone.”
A wheel balance is important to ensure your vehicle runs smoothly, comfortably and ensures long life out of your tyres and suspension components. Once tyres are fitted they need to be put on a wheel balancer to ensure the wheel doesn’t vibrate through the car or steering wheel which can be a discomfort but fatigues tyres and suspension parts from constantly bouncing on the road.
Wheel balancing should be part of your routine maintenance on your car and we recommend every 10,000kms or when you feel your car shaking.
Balancing ranges from $7.50 a wheel through to $15 depending on the type of wheel, size of tyre and what weights need to be used. We use a state of the art Hunter wheel balancer which is touch screen, has a more sensitive spline for pin point wheel weight placement and shows static and dynamic variances with the tyre and wheel which proves much more accurate than a conventional wheel balancing machine.
The wheel alignment machine is the most expensive asset in a professional tyre shop. We use the state of the art Hunter Camera aligner which provides precision when aligning a vehicle’s wheels. The vehicle needs to be test driven before the process is done and this happens on a specified ramp with the alignment system set up around it. People commonly get wheel alignment and wheel balance mixed up.
Both being an integral part of systematic maintenance, the alignment ensures your vehicle is set to maximise comfort, mileage, safety and control. Regular wheel alignments will ensure your vehicle is tracking correctly and all axles are in sync to ensure maximum mileage on your tyres, handling and fuel economy. A sign that your car needs an alignment can be pulling to one side, tyre wear on just on edge only of the tyres, steering wheel off centre and whenever you hit something like a pot hole or gutter hard.
As part of our TLC program we recommend a wheel alignment be carried out routinely every 10,000kms or when you encounter a big hit from a gutter, kerb or pot hole.
As part of our service, we always recommend a wheel alignment be done when purchasing new tyres to ensure they wear regularly from the first day to ensure maximum mileage and stop premature wear.
Most customers always see an improvement in fuel economy when we have done a tyre service including, tyre pressures, balance and wheel alignment. A wheel alignment can take anywhere from 20 minutes through to a few hours depending on the type of vehicle, suspension set up, type of vehicle and how much adjusting is required. We look at all aspects including camber, caster and toe, commonly toe is the only adjustment changed at some tyre shops but this is not a full wheel alignment.
We always give our customers before/after specs so we can explain what we have changed and why, not only to educate our customers but to show them they are getting what they pay for. If your current tyre retailer doesn’t offer a print out how can you be sure they are doing the wheel alignment?
Our costs on wheel alignments is $59 for front, $69 for front and rear and if we need to do any camber/caster adjustment or shims on older vehicles we charge this anywhere from $21 through to $120 depending on the time and amount of shims required.
With so many cars on the road, and the time spent daily on the road, it is unfortunately inevitable that a driver will come across the occasional punctured tyre. It is inconvenient but an easy fix if taken to one of our stores.
Back in the day rope plugs were commonly used. These aren’t a legal and safe long term repair to a radial tyre. These rope plugs are still common practice for 4WDs that need to seal any hole which would cause them to be stuck out bush. If a tyre place is only charging less than $30 for a repair be sure to ask if they are using a safe and industry standard combi plug. In simple terms you get what you pay for.
Nitro Crew only uses combi plugs which is the legal, safest and industry standard procedure for a tyre that has a repairable puncture. These combi plugs are an internal plug that seal from the inside of the tyre out to the tread. They last the life of the tyre when installed properly.
Never try to fix a punctured tyre yourself or through a YOUTUBE video!
Most repairs can be repaired however anything penetrating the tyre from the edge down through sidewall to the bead area is non-repairable and not only illegal to repair it is very unsafe. It is not worth the risk to do a repair on a tyre in these areas for the sake of $30 which could cause injury or worst case scenario cost someone’s life!
Sometimes even a repair that can be fixed can become non-repairable after the tyre has been stripped off the rim. Some tyres are driven on for too long with low pressure. This creates a lot of heat internally and literally melts the sidewall. Sometimes you can see the run flat line externally, but once the tyre is off the rim, the melted rubber is found inside. If your tyre has been run flat, the inside of the tyre will have powdered rubber inside which has perished from the sidewall.
Tyre fitting should only be done with the correct equipment and by a trained professional. Tyre fitting can be dangerous due to the air pressure used and failure can result in serious injury and sometime death. People need to use a respectable tyre retailer to ensure they get the safest fitment possible when the need arises for new tyres.
Most people often realise this on a rainy day and they seem to lose control of their car, or feel the characteristics of the car response and grip through the steering wheel. Most tyres will grip well in dry conditions – even with low tread – but in the rain, is when people notice the tread is getting low. This is due to the fact there is no traction on the tread itself.
The most common causes of premature wear and shortening the life span of tyres include inconsistent maintenance of air pressure, wheel alignment and damage caused by pot holes, gutters, kerbs and road hazards such as nails, timber or steel.
Most people don’t see the inside edge of their tyres because it’s hidden behind the guards and body of the car. In most cases, people are shocked when they see how bald the tyres are on full lock.
With the accessibility of internet in everyone’s pockets, people can self-diagnose sickness, build a house and even fit their own tyres. The internet makes it look easy but without investing in the correct specialised equipment, you can do more harm than good.
The crew at Nitro Crew are trained professionals and we know what we are doing. Our customers’ safety as well as our own staff is the #1 priority. The process normally takes 20-30mins depending on the tyre size and if the vehicle has steel rims or alloys. It is important to ensure the tyres are fitted correctly to ensure safety, comfort and longevity on your tyre investment. We highly recommend a wheel alignment to ensure your car leaves our store with everything balanced, aligned and correctly set up.
If your tyres are due for changing, or if you haven’t had them check in a while for alignment, balance, rotation or pressures, then fill out our online quote form and have one of our staff call you to find a convenient time.
