Jeep Wrangler Falken Wildpeak All Terrain Tire (29-35″) (1987-2018 YJ, TJ, JK & JL) Review


The Falken WILDPEAK all-terrain tire is for
those of you that have a 1987 all the way up through the most current model year Wrangler
that are looking for a high-quality all-terrain tire. This is going to come in sizes from 29 to
35 inches, and for wheel sizes of 15 to 20 inches, so you can have a lot of different
options for which size tire you’re looking for. This is going to be, as I said, a quality
all-terrain tire. The big difference between an all-terrain
tire and a mud-terrain tire, and why you might want an all-terrain tire, is if you spend
a good bit of time on the road but you still want something that’s going to perform well
off-road. A mud-terrain tire is really not going to
be the best for you on-road. They’re a little bit loud. They don’t wear all that well. They’re a little bit bumpy. They’re just not the most comfortable on-road
ride. They have an aggressive style and they work
great in the mud, but for on-road, an all-terrain is a better way to go, in my opinion, and
they are making some pretty aggressive all-terrain tires. Now, the big differences that you’ll find
in the actual tread pattern from an all-terrain to a mud-terrain are that an all-terrain is
going to have lugs that are slightly smaller and a little closer together than a mud-terrain
tire would. Now, with the mud-terrain, they’re spaced
far apart, so if you get a little wheel speed, you can clean out the tire. If you get it packed with mud off-road, it
becomes a slick. You get some wheel speed, it self-cleans,
you have the bite back. With an all-terrain tire, you’re not going
to have that quite as easily because the spaces are a little bit smaller in between, but that’s
also what gives it all of its on-road manners that are things that you really like about
an all-terrain tire on the road. Now, this, just like a mud-terrain tire, is
going to have siping all the way through all of these big lugs. And what that does is, when you air this tire
down off-road, it’s going to really flex, bend, and give you the biggest possible footprint
on your terrain, so you’re going to have the best possible traction. And this also has some tread down onto the
sidewall, which is going to give you some great traction, some great protection, and
a little bit more of an aggressive look as well. This is something that used to be reserved
almost exclusively for mud-terrain tires, but you’re seeing it in a lot of all-terrain
tires these days, so that is something that I really like. Now, something that you’ll find in most mud-terrain
tires that you won’t find in most all-terrain tires is a three-ply sidewall. So, this is a two-ply sidewall. You’re not going to get quite as much strength
out of that, as much puncture resistance out of that as you would with a mud-terrain tire
that has a three-ply sidewall, but this, again, is going to ride more comfortably on the road
and you’re going to get some really nice wear out of it. So, there’s definitely a little bit of a give
and take there. As far as a price goes, these are going to
be priced right around where a lot of other all-terrain tires in this category are, so
I think it’s a pretty fair price for a pretty good tire. As for construction, we hit on a lot of the
main points. You’re going to have larger lugs that are
going to be placed a little bit closer together on this tire. You’re going to have siping throughout. You’re going to have the tread down onto the
sidewall and a two-ply sidewall. And all of this, again, gives you a tire that
works really well when you do take it off-road here and there. If you’re in the mud a lot, this is not going
to perform as well as a mud-terrain, of course, but on-road, it’s going to be quieter, smoother,
and it’s going to last longer. As for the installation, of course, you want
to take your wheels and tires to a tire shop, have them mounted and balanced. We’ve all seen people that mount up a set
of tires in their driveway with some sort of combustible fluid and a flame. Don’t do that. You’re going to have to have them balanced
anyway. Just take this to a shop. Have them mounted and balanced for you. These tires are going to run you anywhere
from about $100 to $325, and that’s going to depend on the size of the tire and the
wheel that it’s designed for. Of course, the larger the tire, the more rubber,
the more expensive it is, but also, the larger the wheel the tire is designed to go on, the
more expensive it’s going to be. So, a 35-inch tire for a 20-inch wheel is
going to be a little bit more expensive than a 35-inch tire for a 15-inch wheel. But, as I said, overall, I think this is priced
fairly for what you’re going to get. So, if you’re looking for a quality all-terrain
tire, I would recommend this one from Falken, and you can find it right here at extremeterrain.com.

  2. I love these tires on my 80 Land Cruiser. Your audio is terrible, hard to hear and is obstructed by that unnecessary music. Thanks

  3. Falken issued a notice concerning faulty rebuilt tires being distributed (a/t and m/t). I would like to buy a set from you but how can I be sure you’re not storing said refurbished tires? My size is 30×9.5×15.

  4. I have these on 2004 D2 , they are awesome in the snow. After 20k they still have around 10/32 of tread. Great tire for the money.

  5. The tires are very good in slushy mud and gravel I live in the country and have no problems getting home when the snow melted and turned the road into shit I'm gonna put some on my burb when it's time for new tires.
