Falken Tire announced it will introduce its new 37-inch WildPeak A/T in January 2011.
The tire, "designed by enthusiasts for enthusiasts," recently stood up to a week-long extreme off-road event focused on the Jeep Wrangler JK vehicle, the tiremaker said. The new Falken WildPeak A/T, sized 37x 12.50R17, “performed superbly and proved that the tire is ready for the punishment of running off-road, yet equally comfortable in terms of delivering a great ride on smooth surfaces,” Falken said.
“When Falken launches a new tire, it does so with authentication as its foundation,” said Nick Fousekis, Falken senior manager of consumer marketing. “We used this aggressive environment slick boulders, sharp rocks, sand and even mud as our testbed and came through with flying colors. I think our customers will really see Falken is taking off-road very seriously with the new 37-inch tire.”
The Falken WildPeak A/T radial features 3-ply sidewall construction, 8-ply tread construction, a D/8 load range and a tread depth of 18/32nds.
