Falken launches new A/T tyre range for Kiwi utes and SUV

Falken is launching 21 different sizes of its new WildPeak all-terrain (A/T) tyre into the New Zealand market for 4×4 utes and SUVs.

The manufacturer says the WildPeak A/T has already earned a good reputation in North America, thanks to its performance away from the road and quiet confidence on it. Following its launch in the US, Off-Road magazine called it “a winner”, while 4 Wheel Drive & Sport Utility Magazine said it is “easily one of the best all-round [tyres] ever manufactured”.

Now Kiwis can take advantage of the Falken WildPeak A/T – at competitive pricing says the local distributor.

The WildPeak tyre range has a symmetrical, five-rib tread pattern and rigid design with four wide, multi-angled grooves enhance water, snow and mud evacuation, making it well suited to New Zealand’s tough and variable conditions. Biting edges add traction, while a hard bead apex delivers excellent sidewall stability and added puncture resistance.

Falken NZ sales manager Linda Hewett says feedback from trials conducted across New Zealand has been very positive.

“Wherever you want, or need, to go – into the bush, onto the beach, across a paddock, or above the snow line, the WildPeak A/T is designed to do the job, without the same compromise in quiet, on-road performance found in some other all-terrain tyres,” says Hewett.

“We are confident the Falken WildPeak A/T will prove popular with ute and SUV owners across the country,” she says.
