The Falken Azenis vs. Zexius controversy


Lesschwab.com sells the performance tire ZE-326 (or in detail the Zexius XI-326). I just bought them because they said it was a Falken tire or that Falken makes them. Yesterday washing the car noticed the Falken label is missing, I did some research and had a big surprise. They offer the Zexius as a Falken Ziex- ZE-326, but without the brand name. I called Falken and ask them if they make the Zexius xi-326 and turns out negative. The same applies with the store, requesting any book or manual backing up Falken is the manufacturer of Zexius ends in no results. I have not received any literature from the store, Falkne or Ohtsu about the tires.

The Falken tire name is Azenis ZIEX-326 while the Schwab is Zexius XI-326, but nowhere not even in the receipt is it going to say Falken. It is too much similarity, I have verified in Falkentire.com in the archives and at the same time have called the company, they do not make Zexius model. So if I purchase a Toyota, please do not send me a Geo Prizm if you know what I mean.

I went to Ohtsu's website and nowhere did I find anything related to Zexius (none). Please I need any information regarding this matter.

Could you please send me any information,

That "Falken" sucks.

*That's a good point.

I'd be pretty pissed if I were in their shoes. Granted, I usually make more educated purchases, and know what product line a manufacturer carries... but I do know that not everyone is armed with that.

I would take those back in a heartbeat, and threaten a lawsuit.
For real.
