Falken Wild Peak A/T Tire Review & Rating

The Wild Peak A/T from Falken combines versatile off-road performance with a tread design that provides responsive on-road drivability and comfort. Developed for drivers of trucks and SUV’s, the Wild Peak is built for driving in year round weather conditions, whether on or off road.

A tough tread compound is molded into a less aggressive symmetric tread pattern.While the relatively tame looking tread design may give you pause that this tire can handle off-road terrain, once you drive it you will be convinced otherwise. Falken has put plenty “under the hood” with this model.

Wild Peak A/T from Falken Tires

The tire’s squared shoulders, 3-ply sidewall and harder bead apex add more strength and stability to the sidewall and provide enhanced traction on all surfaces. The tire is designed to self-clean itself of mud and other debris to maximize traction.

A 5-rib tread pattern and a more rigid block design provide increased steering response and overall handling when driving on-road. Added siping all around the tire gives it biting edges for increased winter weather traction and added grip on other wet road surfaces.

Inside the tread you will find a steel belted construction with a jointless nylon reinforcement that increases strength and durability. It also provides a longer treadlife and extra ride comfort, which is another area that may surprise you. Falken backs up the WildPeak A/T with a 50,000 mile tread guarantee, and offers sizes from 15-24 inches in D and E load ranges for heavy-duty use.

Pros  
  • Exceptional on and off-road traction 
  • Steering is crisp and responsive
  • Excellent value for the money 

Cons

  • Treadlife could be better

Overall Thoughts

Falken has built a very good all-terrain tire in the Wild Peak A/T. This tire goes through anything you want to throw its way. From sand, rock, snow, gravel, dirt and mud, you can depend on this tire, which is more than you can say for some other tire brands. It’s a tire that grows on you as time goes by.

The only one real complaint we have with this tire would be treadwear. We’ve heard several drivers mention this in their reviews on the tire as well. It seems to wear more rapidly after 25k miles. One other area we want to bring up would be a bit of improvement with traction in the mud. Don’t get us wrong, grip in light to moderate amounts of mud is good, but if you let off the accelerator and lose forward momentum in the deep sticky muck, you’ll find yourself getting stuck. That’s pretty typical with most tires in this class though, and to be fair, this is not an M/T tire.

Dry and wet traction is a plus for this tire when driving in the city or out on the highway. Overall, this is a tire that costs less than many competitor models and we give it a ranking in the upper half of the all-terrain class.
