Falken Sincera SN828 (Our Review)
The Sincera SN828 is equipped with a silica-infused tread compound that delivers great traction on dry terrain. The use of advanced silica content also ensures optimal durability and resistance to damage. The tire performs modestly on wet roads, but it’s not one of its strong suits.
Construction-wise, the interior of the tire houses twin steel belts that ensure optimal strength as well as high stability throughout the speed range. The belts also help promote even treadwear. It’s easy to tell when it’s time to rotate the tire, thanks to the use of special rotation indicators.
The Sincera SN828 is equipped with a continuous center rib that ensures stable performance. It also features external shoulder blocks that boost its cornering capabilities significantly. As far as comfort and road noise, the tire uses a 5-phase pitch variation in order to keep road noise at bay, allowing for comfortable ride quality.
Despite flaunting a solid construction, some users complained that their tire didn’t last as long as advertised. Also, we feel like winter traction can be improved significantly.

The Sincera SN828 starts at a budget-friendly price point of around $52. Be on the lookout for discounts, coupons, rebates, and other special offers that can help knock down the price a bit. We feel the need to point out that the prices vary based on the sizes and specs. Also, they could vary from one dealer to another.
The Sincera SN828 is backed by a 50,000-mile warranty on the tread. Uniformity is warranted for the first 2/32 inch of treadwear. Both workmanship and materials are covered for a period of 5 years, with free replacement during the first year of use or the first 2/32 inch of wear.

Falken Sincera SN828 Tire Customer Review
Wesley K. says: “There’s a lot to like about this tire. For starters, it’s pretty inexpensive compared to other tires. To add, it displays incredible handling and cornering on dry surfaces. Not to mention how quiet and comfortable it is. However, there are also a few things that I don’t like about the tire, most notably is its mediocre winter traction. All in all, it offers a good deal of value for the price.”Wesley K. posted (4 / 5) review
Omar R.says: “This tire is quite impressive for what it is. I mean, it costs around $50, which is very affordable, so I didn’t have high expectations coming in. For the price, the tire offers great dry traction and cornering. It’s also pretty comfortable. Winter traction can be improved a lot, but it’s not a winter tire anyway.”Omar R. posted (5 / 5) review
