There are car owners that know what they’re doing when it comes to dressing up or modifying their rides. These are people I admire the most since they carefully think about each and every aspect of the mod before actually buying them. One such person is the owner of my test car for this Falken Azenis FK450 review.
The vehicle is a 2014 Dodge Challenger SXT. Yes, it’s the one with the 3.6-liter V6 motor. From that statement alone, it would be overkill to equip the car with an aggressive set of racing tires.
The owner upgraded from the stock 17-inch wheels to a quality set of aftermarket 18-inch rims. He paired the new wheels with a set of Falken Azenis FK450 tires since the Challenger is a daily driver. He also demanded a set of tires that will do well in the snow. It seems he made the right choice.
For starters, the Falken Azenis FK450 is an all-season high-performance tire with the sterling characteristics of a summer tire. This means the Azenis FK450 will provide the same level of adhesion whether on dry or wet roads.
Since the Challenger is a sedan, the owner also wanted some highway comfort. It wouldn’t hurt if the tires roiled silently, too. In this Falken Azenis FK50 review, you will find out why this is one of my favorite tires for sports coupes or high-performance sedans since it makes no compromises in terms of road adhesion and refinement.

Falken Azenis FK450 review: Features
The asymmetric rib with block hybrid tread design is responsible for improving the stability and handling of your ride. You will find supporting tread block bars between each tire block that minimizes squirming under hard cornering and acceleration. There are vertical notches integrated onto each tread block which serves to maintain contact with the road as you enter a tight corner. This tire is definitely engineered to improve the handling of your vehicle.
Enough about the specs and features. Time to do some driving.
Falken Azenis FK450 review: Test Drive
The Falken Azenis FK450 allowed me to enter a corner at higher speed. It also enabled me to exit the corner at full throttle without the rear tires hunting for grip.
Now you know the reasons why I consider the Falken Azenis FK450 as one of my favorite high-performance tires. I had fun testing the Dodge Challenger but everything went well due to the fantastic capabilities of the Azenis FK450.
