Falken wildpeak at3w
Went from 265/60R18 BFG KO2 (which became noisy after 30K kms) to 265/65R18 Falken wildpeak at3w. First impressions is quietness again. Had a massive downpour last week and it handled corners better than the BFG which triggered the ASC. It isn't LT rated so will see if it can handle the rough stuff as good as the BFG.
Will be taking it to Coffin Bay soon to test it out.
Price wise, got a good deal with 5 tyres (due to different size and spare was 10 years old original tyre) for under $1200 with wheel alignment.
Purchased in October 2020 at City Discount Tyres for $1,160.
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.
Purchased in May 2019 at Tyre Kingdom North Parramatta for $219.
Questions & Answers
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.
