What is the life expectancy of the tires for on road use only
Hi Gareth, I have currently 95000on ours and they will have at least 15k-20k left in them. They have worn really even with the pressures I run. I will go another set without hesitation.
Thats an astonishing amount of ks 'what pressure do you recommend ' i have a Nissan Patrol
I'm aware that the Wild Peak sidewalls are 2 ply, but what about tread ply? Are the 4 ply also?
Your assumption of 2 ply sidewall is incorrect from a construction point of view. From a lamination perspective they are 2 ply. Remember it’s 2 ply overlapped.
The tread of the A/T3Ws feature a six-ply construction that consists of two layers of steel, polyester and polyamide.
What ply. rating are the Falcon Wild Peak AT3 please?
The AT3W use a unique tread continued sidewall ply design, therefore the 2 ply sides are multiplied giving 4 ply sides. I’ve never seen a sidewall failure on a Falken AT3W
Thanks for your reply..But what about tread ply? Are they 4ply also or something different?
“...six-ply construction that consists of two layers of steel, polyester and polyamide...”
Are all Falken Wildpeak AT3W tyres of light truck construction or are there different versions.
not a question I can get an answer to either!
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.
my mate put 285/65/17 on his 2019 Ranger wildtrack without any mods or lift
