“We are very proud of our WildPeak M/T tire, as it’s a fantastic tire for both off-road and on-road usage,” says David Colletti, vice president of original equipment for Falken. “This makes it a perfect fit for the top-of-the-line Rubicon model of the incredible new Jeep Wrangler.

The M/T features Falken’s proprietary three-ply Duraspec Sidewall Technology, developed to sustain the most punishing off-road conditions while also providing an additional layer of protection and durability. The WildPeak M/T exhibits road manners thanks to an optimized variable three-pitch tread pattern and precision manufacturing technology, maximized for the driver’s enjoyment.
