The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.
The Falken HS 449 is a winter tyre designed for passenger cars. Its design is based on a state-of-the-art silica-enhanced rubber compound which ensures flexibility at extreme temperatures and therefore improves driving safety and comfort by increasing grip.
The Falken HS 449 features a directional tread pattern with an innovative arrangement of blades that offers superb traction, rapid dispersal of water and a reduced risk of aquaplaning. The optimised compound used to manufacture the model reduces both its weight and its rolling resistance, meaning lower fuel consumption and fewer atmospheric CO2 emissions. The tyre is also exceptionally resistant to mechanical damage and rapid wear. The engineers took care to ensure an even distribution of forces acting on the tyre, meaning that the tread wears slowly and evenly and the tyre delivers not only maximum performance through its lifetime, but also greater driving safety. All of these features make the Falken HS 449 an exceptionally eco-friendly and economical choice. The Falken HS 449 also reduces tyre noise, since the combination of a state-of-the-art tread with a balanced compound ensures that any noise generated by the tyre during driving is rapidly cancelled out, making for a quiet and comfortable drive. The tyre is the ideal choice for demanding drivers who are looking for balanced performance and safety on the road at a reasonable price.

I use Falken HS 449 tyres in my Alfa Romeo. The combination of Italian fantasy and Japanese technology is a recipe for a pleasant drive in all conditions. The tyres perform very well on wet surfaces, on mud, even on snow and ice . Using Falken HS 449 tyres I never had any problems while driving, and I tested them both in the city and for long journeys. They guarantee great stability, comfort and good grip in any condition. Despite the very soft compound, the tyre wear after one season is so small I was in shock! What’s more the tyres are incredible when driving fast – 130 mph for a long time made no impression on them. I can sincerely recommend these tyres to everyone. You won’t be disappointed.
I cannot comment the durability of Halken HS 449 tyres as I only used them for one season, however, I still have a lot to say about their significant advantages. I can certainly confirm that they perform great in winter conditions, they are stable on both packed snow and mud. I had also any problems with skids as well as with accelerating and braking on dry and wet surfaces. I can add this is not my first car and not the first winter tyres I bought. In comparison to other tyres I used they are fantastic!
I am very satisfied with Falken HS 449 tyres as there is nothing better in terms of both quality and price. I also have summer tyres from Falken. For those who do not know this brand I have only one thing to say: they are worth buying! Generally speaking, the brand specializes in sports tyres so I can sincerely recommend each tyre model of this brand regardless of whether it is winter or summer tyre. Really excellent tyres at a reasonable price. I strongly recommend.
Great tyres - one of the best winter tyres I’ve ever had! Very good grip on wet surfaces. Falken HS 449 tyres are very quiet and abrasion is better than I expected. What’s more, rolling resistance is low. However, what’s most important, they guarantee comfort and safety. I highly recommend to all drivers who also appreciate these qualities. If you ask me EUR vs quality is great - the best tyres in this class on the market.
Some people may say that winter tyres are not as good as summer ones, however, in my opinion Falken HS 449 tyres are just perfect. If you ask me, I think every driver should be satisfied with them. The tyres are soft and very comfortable. A little increased fuel consumption, but it also depends on driving style. I recommend those who do not want to spend too much, and who are looking for a good product.
