New Falken MTs

First photos I've seen of the new Falkens. I believe being broadly introduced later this week at SEMA.

About time! Now at least their sponsored teams can run tires with some real tread on them..

That was not supposed to be leaked until SEMA........

Excuse my vanity but those are not very exciting/interesting looking. I guess the bling bling truck market won't be interested.

(I run bland Hankook MT and love them)

Yep. Genright had them mounted at Offroad Expo but had covers on them. Dynomax pushing the envelope a little for Spec Class coverage. Looking forward to seeing how these work in February.

Falken very committed to supporting off road racing last couple years. More so than a lot of other tire manufacturers. Most of the racers have been doing custom grooving on the Wildpeaks. These may not excite you, but are step forward for Falken and will be interesting to see what racers think.

I'm all for more/better options and have seen their grooved Wild Peaks out there. The durability sounds impressive so hopefully that sticks with the mt.

Genright had Goodyear's covered since they were sponsored by Falken but didn't have these yet. I'm interested to see some pricing on them

So if their AT tires require a forklift to mount to the vehicle, then these MTs are going to tip the scales at astronomical levels rivaled only by the General Red Letter tires is my guess. They probably will NOT be a tire that you want to ever consider running on your DD/weekend toy. This will likely be a trail toy only tire....unless your pockets are deep and $3.50 gasoline doesn't bother you.

Here are a couple more…no real details about it yet though.

i have the at's in a 305 on my truck I believe they run about 60 lbs each. quite heavy but they seem to be very durable with a great sidewall. the only load range E tires ive ever seen that recommended pressure is 65 psi rather than 80.

Tread pattern kinda looks similar to the Pro-Comp Mt's and the dunlop mud rovers
