Why Falken? It’s no secret that Falken has always been committed to excellence. Their long history of making affordable high quality tires has established themselves as a leader in performance tires for pickup trucks, crossovers and SUVs. It’s no wonder Falken is a highly trusted name in the industry and the Wildpeak family of off-road tires is no exception. But which one is right for you?
That’s where we come in. Check out our recommendations below to find the right tire for your vehicle. One of these Wildpeaks is sure to wildly pique your interest.
WILDPEAK A/T Trail
If you want the perfect blend of off-road capability and all-weather performance, the Falken Wildpeak A/T Trail might be right for your CUV. This is Falken’s first all-terrain tire designed specifically for crossovers and features the USTMA’s Severe Snow Rating for extreme weather.
Its design includes a durable 2-ply polyester construction, a rugged sidewall for protection in rugged terrain and an elevated tread pattern for good overall traction. Make no mistake, the Wildpeak A/T Trail is built for crossover owners who crave adventure and comes backed by a 65,000-mile warranty.
Engineered with Falken’s own patented 3D Canyon Sipes, the Falken Wildpeak A/T3W has a silica compound tread to increase the tire’s life and an aggressive sidewall to protect against jagged rocks on the harshest off-road trails. It also has built-in heat diffuser technology for extra stability on the road. Whether it’s rain, snow, or brutal off-road conditions, the Wildpeak A/T3W has you and your 4x4 covered.
For an all-terrain tire that delivers on long-lasting wear, winter and wet performance, the Wildpeak A/T3W is designed for venturing out year-round in any weather. Each tire has the Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake symbol, meaning that it’s also certified to maintain traction in winter driving conditions.
The Falken Wildpeak H/T is a light truck tire that’s purpose-built for the long haul. It’s perfect for those long highway drives or on your daily commute. The H/T delivers on responsive wet braking and dry handling on all roadway surfaces, and its multi-waved lateral sipes and distinct tread pattern optimizes pavement grip in rain or shine.
Other features include a high-tension casing ply and wide steel belts for stability, reduced road noise and long-lasting tread life. Whether you own a light truck or an SUV, you’ll get great value out of a set of these Wildpeak H/T’s.
The Wildpeak H/T02 is the latest addition to Falken’s collection of highway tires. Ideal for towing or hauling, the H/T02 is pretty much all of the best features of the Wildpeak H/T above, but upgraded for modern-day pickup trucks.
Tested on some of the newest three-quarter ton diesel pickups, the Wildpeak H/T02 became proudly designated with the “HD” badge on its sidewall due to its heavy-duty design. With some of the more classic features of a rugged upper sidewall and rigid tread blocks, the H/T02 also has advanced 3D Canyon Sipe Technology for enhanced drivability.
Whether you’re moving things around on a construction site or hauling your boat up to the lake, a set of these H/T02s will have you covered. Currently, these aren’t available but can be ordered in any of our stores.
For a tire that screams pure off-road prowess, look no further than the Falken Wildpeak M/T. A mud-terrain tire designed to give you the best off-road performance, this tire can endure and thrive on the roughest trails out there. Featuring Falken’s very own DURASPEC three-ply sidewall technology, it provides extra protection from rain to rocks.
Its thick offset shoulder blocks and the self-cleaning grooves protect against sharp objects and mud while its aggressive sidewall provides extra traction on any terrain. Trust the pros on this one: the Wildpeak M/T is built to take your SUV, 4x4 or truck pretty much anywhere.
