Nearly balled less than 30,000ks
These tyres are the worst I've ever purchased got less than 30,000 and I had been complaining to bob Jane about several issues with the wear on the side walls also and they don't wana know me so wouldn't recoded either go mickey Thompson much better tyre and quality and tyre power now look after my wheel needs
93000k and still going strong
I purchased 2 falken wild peak all terrains for the rear of my kia sorento 4wd at 142000k, now at 232000k they are only millimeters from the wear blocks and still going despite never having been rotated and over 50000k towing a camper trailer. I originally fitted these as they were on special a Bob jane t mart in mackay and cannot say that I've any complaints with these tyres at all, good grip on gravel and sandy roads, don't let go in the wet and quiet on the black top. Will definitely go for another set of these. Have been caught out in the past buying cheap import tyres and having them fail at low kms, respected brands were cheap knock off imitations, be wary of so called bargains!
Just over 70k kms and the fronts are getting close to the wear markers
I swapped the factory tyres on my PC Challenger for these before I picked it up from the dealer. Along with the ARB bar, Snorkel and Hayman Reece towbar these tyres filled out my need for a somewhat capable 4WD wagon.
Since new, the tyres have performed very well on the tar, dirt roads, rocky climbs and sandy flats. The one thing they could do better is mud, but maybe that's why you can buy MTs? I've not been stuck in mud, but once or twice the fronts have been too packed with mud to grip and only the locking rear diff got me out dry (but...filthy). One area to watch was tyre pressure, but some early tests caused me to end up with 41PSI all around when empty, 42 in the rears when loaded with the family. The biggest problem, and the reason the fronts need to be replaced is the wheel alignment caused the tyres to wear prematurely. Only the third alignment shop could get the alignment right on the Challenger, with both Mitsubishi and an 'offroad' tyre shop completely failing to get the alignment right. With the alignment right, the wear on the inside of the tyres reduced and they have worn evenly since. The rears will probably go another 2000km (to 75k km) or more. I'm about to buy another Wildpeak for my 6th rim to match the spare and will now run these on the front with one of the old fronts as the spare. Not sure what to buy next time, the new OPAT II are a great tyre but will have lower mud performance than what I have. If I could get the Toyo RT, that would be settled but Toyo AU don't bring them in. It will probably be another pair of Wildpeaks at this stage.
Good Tyres For a Fair Price
I purchased 4 Falken Wildpeak AT's 245/75/17 For my Mitsubishi Triton 4x4. "Replaced Bridgestone Dulers"
So far put approx 25,000km on them with overall good results.
Dry Traction- Great
Wet Traction- Good on highway & resistant to Aquaplaning. Around Corners & Roundabouts not to good, will wander & Squirm and often brake traction in 1st gear take offs.
Awesome tyres! Dont judge by the price!
Bought a full set for my jeep cherokee 2006 crd.
Gave them absolute death off road in limestone, through creeks and gravel. Even the side wall held up to the rocky terrain at 18 psi and offered very good grip.
The deep tread is fantastic and with a 2nd wheel alignment/ rotation I managed to get 52000kms out of them .
only expected 35000 because i don't bother to air down when off roading half the time.
I replaced my tyres with a new set of wild peak AT2 again 2 weeks ago from bobjane osbourne park. Top Blokes at that Shop!
I prefer to ruin...
Falken Wildpeak Tyre
Don't waste your time and money on these tyres. They're total rubbish. We only had them a couple of months and they are completely worn. We are totally disappointed. A complete waste of money and a total rip off. I can not believe that a tyre so bad is even sold
Bald at 26000km
Had these on my pathfinder for 12months done 26000kms and where bald and also down to canvas in patches you could also see the rubber was peeling off in balls once warm after minimal driving. I also had 2 wheel alignments done and rotations to ensure this wasn't the problem, 85% on road driving with 15% dirt use. Very disappointed now switched to dick cepick tyres and paid the little extra $$$ for quality.
Perfect so far!
First set of ATs replacing the original Bridgestone tyres on my Challenger Pb.
Great grip in dry and wet conditions. Worried about road noise but these tyres are only audible when the car is rolling with Windows down, so I am quite happy there. Handling has been assured and I can feel the difference when steering, like I hv better control of the car.
Will update when I hv run more kms.
BTW I installed them with the blue raised letters inside. The thread looks great, not overly aggressive for my taste but unmistakably ATs,.
Bald in less than 35000 kms
Purchased these as they were recommend by the tyre place. So very disappointed had a puncture in the first month and they are bald to the canvas less than a year later. Have had them rotated and balanced and do mostly highway driving, been off road a couple of times only. I definitely won't be getting these again anytime soon
I have been running the Wildpeak A/T's on my Jeep. I bought them as they were a very reasonable price.
I have been pleasantly surprised to find they ride so well on wet or dry bitumen and even more surprised to find the handling improve when going on the gravel. I would recommend these tyres to anyone looking for a value for money all terrain. I bought mine on a Bob Jane catalogue sale and the price was amazing.
I have now been running the Wildpeak's for over 20,000 kms and could not be happier. They are handling .everything I have put them to. No heavy mud as yet and definitely out perform the similar priced Maxxis and Kumho I have tried before
So much better than the original tyres
The original tyres were Bridgestone DDuelers that had to be replaced at ~ 40,000 kms after 4 punctures mainly through sidewall. Purchased Falken Wildpeak A/T 01 215/70 r16 from Bob Jane after reading reviews about sidewall strength for punctures. Now, 91,000 km and no punctures later I have just bought another identical set. Too good to pass up such a good deal. They were $40 less each tyre than last time! Brilliant for dirt roads, off roads and good on the highway too.
Really good 4wd tyres
Bought a 2007 D40 dual cab 4x4 and it needed new tyres. Originally I was going to go with Yokohama Geolanders A/T as I'd had them on my D22, however the tyre shop was out of stock and they suggested the Wildpeak A/T as a strong alternative.
What a blessing in disguise these tyres were! Absolutely rate these tyres for sand, dirt and mild mud when off road. Bitumen driving they're fantastic too on wet roads and cornering at highway speed. They're quiet for an A/T and represent fantastic value for money and worth plenty more than the dollar amou...
A great AT tyre and all rounder.
Bought a set for my NW Pajero 265/65 R17. After reading numerous reviews and talking to repairers and tyre experts.
Immediately departed on 4500 outback trip mixture of bitumen dirt and some bulldust and plenty of corrugations. Great tyre performed flawlessly. These tyres are also relatively quiet on bitumen for an AT. Sidewall construction good. Seems to keep the sharp rocks away with side tread.
So far no complaints and substantially cheaper than most of the more traditional AT Tyres but less prone to scalloping.
EXCELLENT TYRE FOR ROAD AND DIRT
As a plumber carrying a large amount of weight on my Nissan Navara 4x4 cab chassis I was looking for a better option than my previous tyre choice. My previous tyres were cooper discovery st, not a bad tyre but pushed them pretty hard to get 70000k out of them and at a price of $300 per tyre not a cheap option.
Researched a found the Falken WildPeak a/t, purchased a set for $200.00 per tyre (225/75/r16) and found them great !!!. The road noise is extremely low as low as a standard car tyre. The grip in the wet and dry is very good compared the...
Can't fault them yet.
I've had them on my V6 Bravo for 10000k. Excellent tyre on the tarmac, even on wet roundabouts. I've had the on the beach on reasonably soft sand and haven't bothered the lower the pressure from the 40 psi I normally run and haven't struggled. Looks like I should get 50000+ after measuring against the still new spare. No rocks or mud yet.
Been running these tyres for about 3,000km on my new dual cab triton and they're the best all terrain I've used. Great on the black stuff and even perform quite well in the mud too. Better than the maxis A/T my mate has on his Colorado. Have used them on dirt, sealed, and wet roads. Used off road on rocks, dirt and mud and lives up to it's all terrain name!
Great value, fairly priced, nice looking, plenty of tread
Very capable Tyres

These tyres will get 80000km going on the wear so far . Mazda BT50 dual cab , current model .

Questions & Answers
What is the air pressure
Hello l’m having 255/65/r17 A/T3w’s put on my Dmax on Thursday and will be towing a 22’ van would 41-42 psi be ok when towing and 38 psi when driving around town.
Falken give a table for all sizes of tyres on their website so you can look up the recommended pressure for all loads on all sizes.
the latest falken tyres are made in Thailand does anyone know if the quality is the same as the Japanese made falken
Falken hasn’t set a firm release date as of this moment, but have indicated sometime in the first quarter 2016. We have not seen all the specs for every size that will be made available. However, I have found an article that adds some additional details on the size you mention
