You can call it blind luck or whatever you want, but I was simply at the right place at the right time. I’m talking about my test car for this Falken Wildpeak M/T review. The owner of a pristine 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara was filling up at the local gas pump. I was also there during that time, and I happened to be thinking about friends or colleagues who can hook me up with a rugged 4x4 machine.
Since the Falken Wildpeak M/T is a tire designed to handle all sorts of extreme terrain, I needed a vehicle that is tough enough for the task at hand. The 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited was the perfect answer to my prayers!
The Falken Wildpeak M/T was developed alongside the excellent Wildpeak AT3W. Both tires were tested by professional off-roaders during the prototype stage. The father and son team of Tony and Jordan Pellegrino (who happen to be one of the biggest names in off-road) are a part of the Falken family. They tested the Wildpeak M/T tire over punishing road conditions and off-road events including the King of the Hammers race which brutally combines desert racing with rock crawling.
However, the Wildpeak M/T is not your typical mud terrain tire. Falken boldly claims the tire is civilized enough to be used as a daily driver. You don’t need to participate in off-road events to equip your vehicle with the Falken Wildpeak M/T in the same manner that you don’t need to join a marathon to wear running shoes. My Jeep Wrangler test vehicle is one such example.
The owner of the Wrangler is a simple chap who simply prefers the rugged looks of a mud-terrain tire on an equally rugged 4x4 vehicle. Yes, the Jeep was equipped with a 1.5-inch lift kit and an LED light bar on the roof but that’s about it. This is a Jeep that drives on normal roads and open highways, and it so happens to be equipped with the Falken Wildpeak M/T tires.

Falken Wildpeak M/T review: Features
The Falken Wildpeak M/T is engineered with offset shoulder blocks and an aggressive upper sidewall. This design will allow the tire to perform optimally even in low tire pressures so you can forge ahead on soft sand without losing traction.
