Tires Test Tough

Falken Wildpeak A/T3W tires are king of the road and, especially, the off-road when it comes to aggressive performance and rugged-terrain driving for trucks and SUVs. A unique tread design excels in three areas: wear, and wet and winter performance, particularly in severe snow conditions. Deep sipes and grooves guarantee consistent performance and appearance throughout the life of the tire. Check falkentire.com for details.


Fir-Skin Fabric

Trac Grabber rescues vehicles when you’re stuck; that is, when tires can’t get traction.
