Falken Wildpeak M/T's

Where is everyone buying the new Falken Wildpeak M/T's? I see a bunch of builds with them but all the dealers say they aren't available.

I'd like a set of 37x12.50r17s.

Thanks

Ha! They happen to sponsor the new Spec class in ULTRA4 and we happen to be the exhaust sponsor. Will keep you posted.

Hey, that's my race car!! Well, maybe not mine, but the one I will be driving. Less than 4 weeks to go!!

I drove the car with the 37 street compound MTs in JV over Thanksgiving week and I'd give them just an OK. That car is long and wide though and I'm thinking the 37s were just too small for it. There was talk of a 38.5 sticky being made for us for the race, but not sure if that is happening.

Besides the spec cars I know there will be a few other cars in the race with them also. For example, I think Savvy/Currie running them on their new car.

Gerald just posted some very postive things on Pirate about these tires based on their testing with the new car.

That's great. To bad you can't get them.

Wouldn't you rather Falken test them with their sponsored teams and make tweaks to the compound to make sure they are offering a very good tire to the public vs. just releasing an untested new product? They are brand new, I can't say I blame them for not releasing them to everyone without proper testing to ensure they are everything you are hoping they are.

I really like the look of these tires, depending on how they prove to hold up and perform over the year, I may consider a set myself whenever they do become available.

You will see the 38.5's on 4411 and on Tony from GenRights rig for sure. See you soon!
