Join us in the studio as we take a look at the brand new Falken Wildpeak AT3W All Terrain tyre, which will be equipped to our Ford Ranger as a long term test vehicle.
Hey, welcome to Tyre Review. We've got a new tyre in the warehouse today and it's the Falken AT3W which is a brand new, all terrain tread pattern from these guys. So it's not the old Falken AT. The new version has all sorts of new technology built into it but I'm really excited to get this one because they say it's the AT3W because it's built for wear, winter, and wet weather performance. So there's three W's in there.
So this tyre has sipes that really lock the tread together and provide solid blocks that really resist high torque wear and provide that handling but also, when you are going slower, the tyre is actually more conformable so it can go over those rocky, rough terrain when you are forward driving.
So an interesting thing about this tyre is, make sure you looking at this when you are getting them mounted, is they actually have different lettering on each side so one side has raised lettering and other side has lower lettering. This is to give one side a more aggressive and the other side less aggressive tread pattern or look from the side of the car. So these are also a snow rated tyre. We've got this little snow symbol down here next to the AT3W which means that it is actually meant for snow and ice.
So I'm really excited because these actually are going on my personal Ford Ranger. We're going to be testing them for the next 10,000K's over a variety of different terrains but I like them because they are such an aggressive looking tyre. And one of the reasons why people buy mud tyres these days, is because of that aggressive look whereas on the car these are going to look great and I'll be putting them through lots of different water, snow, hopefully, off road, we'll be going down to Pelverata Falls. So we'll report back in about 10,000K since we'll have put through their paces.
