Falken AT3W LT275/65 18
Very happy with these tyres performance on and off road wet and dry. The LT version is a very strong tyre, 5000km of outback driving some very remote roads and no issues at all.
Purchased in February 2020.
Very happy with these tires fitted to a joke hilux Half the driving was offroad On rocky terrain Tires have held up very well to the conditions And will be getting a second set as this set has done it 82000 kmeters in the wet tropics of North Queensland and gulf country.
Second time around.
I was so impressed with the Falkens on my Colorado that I have just had a set fitted to my 150 Prado. The difference over the original BFGs’ is amazing. Quieter, better steering and hopefully better kms.
Great Tyre Great Price
Fitted to Pajero Sport 265/65/R18 before a Simpson desert trip , Found the Wildpeaks excellent off road and on Road , Importantly they work well in the wet , The test I saw was what convinced me to buy them as they tested well in wet and dry braking and this has been confirmed with use for the last 25000 km .
They have been quiet and if anything have improved handling, would definitely recommend them.

Better than first thought
After having had a number of recommendations from various friends to refit my Toyota Troopy with Falken WildPeak tyres I did so with reservations. My first thought was ,, because of their rugged look ,, they would feel harsh and noisy ,, but the opposite applied. They are smooth and quiet on sealed roads and have got me through a few very rough and muddy situations. I have only had these tyres since May 2019 but so far so good.

These Tyres Rock
Needed replacements for some older Maxxis with good tread. A lot of research, a good deal, and now I have 305/70R16s on my built Patrol. They balanced up well, and are quiet on the road. Grip, especially cornering, is noticeably better on wet and dry roads. Off road traction is good, even in light mud. The sidewall lugs are heavy duty for an AT tyre. They air down nicely for sand too. After 10000 km the wear is barely noticeable. They suit my 60% road and light/medium off road driving and towing perfectly. They look good too. Recommended.

Good tyres so far
Tossed up between BFG KO2's and these. I found a lot of reviews on the KO2's about poor wet braking on tar (though great everywhere else), and on these, good wet braking (and probably nearly as good everywhere else). My usage is mostly Melb Urban, so I chose the Falkens. So far very happy so far. lots of wet tar and good wet braking. Note comparison is difficult as tyres removed were well past their prime
Bought the Falken Wildpeak AT for my new Holden Trailblazor in April 2019 to replace the factory tyres, got a great deal buy 3 and 4th one free at the time.
Bought them from City Discount Tyres Port Adelaide, they are great to deal with.
Have now done 6000 klms on them with over 1000 klms on Oodnadatta track towing Camper Trailer and the tracks were very corrugated and rough.
Tyres are great on road and quiet, and off road awesome, no chips from rubber and still look as good as new. so well pleased and would definitely recommend.

Fantastic tyre at a great price
Have put a set of Falken Wildpeak AT 265/65/17 tyres on my 2016 Mazda BT50. So much better than the standard rubbish tyres I replaced. Hardly notice any noise difference than the HT tyres these replaced ... very quiet. Provide great steering & feedback, good in the wet and dry, very confidence inspiring. Grip really well offroad & work well towing the 2 ton van. Seem to be wearing evenly & lasting really well. I rotate every 10000ks.

WildPeak's new AT3
So far these tyres are proving VERY good all round. I bought 275 65 18's for my Jeep grand cherokee and yes they make a slight noise, not as noisy as you would expect but its there, don't buy them if you want a silent tyre. If you plan to go off road occasionally these are awesome, they look sensational and wet weather grip is very very good. I'd buy them again and they're very well priced compared to the KO2's.
I fitted the AT3 265/70R16XL's to our 2013 R51 Pathfinder and have travelled 10,000km so far. Previously we had the Continental H/T's on. The XL's have a thicker side wall and immediately I noticed that the body roll was lessened considerably, especially going through round abouts and offroad. They handle the sand much better than our previous tyre and I have had them as low as 11psi. I have not had any issues in the wet. One thing I have noticed after a recent 100km stretch on gravel is that they are better at 90km'h than they are at 60km/h. T...his is probably due to throwing the stones out of the tread better at this speed. Also, the road noise is only marginally louder than the H/T's we had on. In the wet, they do not lose as much traction when full throttle off the line is applied as the previous tyres did from new. I would recommend these tyres to any one looking for a very rugged allrounder that needs a tyre for city, bush and beach driving. The difference over the stock tyre is quite astonishing. These are my 8th set of off road tyres on varying vehicles.
Aggressive look but all the benefits of an all terrain
We have a Nissan Patrol Y62 and are travelling Australia towing a 3T caravan. We needed reliable tyres that were great off road but quiet on road with good tread life. We are thrilled with our AT3 wildpeaks and blown away by their performance. We have been in torrential downpour and people were getting off the road, but our wildpeaks were stable and handled the wet beautifully. We have also gone off-road and been equally impressed. The noise is minimal and dry handling excellent.
Aggressive looking A/T with no noise
I just had Wild Peak AT3's fitted to my BT50 and they look awesome, and as the other reviews suggest no noise.
I am about to embark on an 8000 km round trip to the top end of WA and back taking on plenty of dirt and sand driving and will update review on return.
Part 2 having done 10,000 kms, including a good deal of heavily corrugated (dirt roads at 25psi and average 80kmph) to smooth out the bumps and plenty of Highway driving loaded up with all the camping gear and extra water/fuel I'm still impressed.
Handling on the dirt was excellent a...
best on the market for the price
Put these to the test and past with flying colours! Mad to pay top dollar when these tyres will do the same if not better. Very quiet on the road, comfortable ride and grippy when you need it. Previous had Bridgestone A /T duller, another good tyre but the falken at3 w much much better. Took a leap of faith and now laughing with the off road gods!
April 6th 2019 Update: Best value for money
The best on and off road tyres on the Market for any 4x4. Purchased full set 12 months plus ago done 20000klms on road and dirt still brand new. Had the b...ig boy brand's previous....... they are good no doubt.....but bang for your buck these tyres are more of what the world needs in products available to consumers. Very good and like anything look after them and they will look after you.

Questions & Answers
Hi there, I m running Dunlop AT22 265/65/17 for my Ford ranger xlt 3.2(2018).Now, thinking of upgrading to Falken AT3/W, any lifting or modify needed? Tks
I'm sorry I cannot give you any technical info as per your question ,,, all I can say is that I have had a few brands of tyres on my Troopy over the years including the Dunlops you have ,, plus ,, B F Goodrich and Coopers on which I toured Australia on some pretty rugged terrain. I was happy with the Dunlop and Goodrich tyres, disappointed in the Coopers and so far I am happy with the Falkens albeit I haven't done any serious off-roading yet. For a rugged looking tyre they are very quiet around town but I cannot give you any thoughts on 4WDing, although my tyre supplier has given me great recommendations. Give em a try and good luck.
If you stay with the same size tyre there is no change to any aspect of your vehicle.
If you change the tyre size you will need to stay withing any legal constraints applicable, here we are allowed 2 inch larger diameter for example. Then you will need to check whether larger diameter and/or width will foul the wheel arch - steering wheels have more movement. If there is any fouling you may be able to panel beat, adjust steering lock etc. or you may need suspension modification. Best place to look would be on a Ranger owners forum.
