Falken WildPeak HT Tire Review & Rating

Built for light trucks, SUV’s and crossovers, the Falken WildPeak H/T is a dedicated all-season highway tire that is designed to deliver solid traction and stability in year-round road conditions along with a smoother and more comfortable ride quality.

Falken uses a tougher all-season tread compound on the HT that is molded into an advanced symmetrical non-directional 5-rib tread pattern to give this tire excellent dry traction and handling. The tire’s continuous center rib enhances stability and helps it deliver quicker braking performance.

Falken WildPeak HT Tire Review

The M+S rated tread utilizes multi-wave lateral sipes and four circumferential grooves to give this tire the type of traction you look for when driving on wet road surfaces. It effectively channels away water and reduces the risk of hydroplaning throughout the speed range. The added sipes further increase traction in snow, slush and ice.

Road noise is reduced through Falken’s variable pitch shoulder design while a high-tension casing ply increases overall ride comfort. The combination works well and we’ve heard many others mention how the level of comfort is equal to what you would find on tires like the Michelin LTX M/S.

In addition to its high-tension casing ply, Falken uses two wider steel belts inside the tread to add strength and durability to the tire. You’ll find a wide range of 15-20 inch sizes available for the Wildpeak HT, and it comes backed with a 60,000 mile tread warranty.

Pros

  • Dry and wet traction is excellent
  • Good winter performance
  • Comfortable ride without all the noise
  • Treadlife

Cons

  • Increase braking on hard-packed snow/ice surfaces

Overall Thoughts

You might not be expecting the type of performance you’ll find on this Wild Peak H/T. Falken has done a very good job with this model and it shows. Performance on dry and wet roads is as good as you will find from most any tire in this class. They provide a good feel for the road and the wet grip is especially impressive.

When it comes to winter weather, the H/T is more than capable. It will get you through an 6 inch snow without leaving you stranded. Again, it provides the type of confidence you’d find on other top tires. The only area we would like to see improved is braking on hard-packed snow or ice covered pavement. It’s the one area that holds this model back in comparison to other top tires in this class.

The ride on the highway is comfortable and road noise is not an issue. As for treadlife, the tire holds up well and we’ve heard others saying the same thing.

Overall, this Falken model does a good job. It delivers solid year-round performance as an all-season highway tire, and the price is lower than several comparable tires in this category.
