Falken WildPeak AT3W review

Among several AT (All-Terrain) tires, the Falken Wildpeak A/T3W is becoming among the most remarkable products in the AT tire marketplace.

For a brief description, Falken Tires was established in 1983. Until 1985, they started to go into the North American market. Nowadays, it is a part of the company Sumitomo Rubber North America. 

They have expanded their centers over the USA throughout periods, including Texas, Florida, California, Tennessee, Illinois, and New Jersey. Their business value is best known for high-quality tires and affordable prices for customers. 

Now, we will dive into the Falken Wildpeak A/T3W reviews

Tread Features

This tire has a unique tread pattern, which makes it very different from other tires. Its name is ‘Rugged and Rigid Tread Blocks Features.’ It is extremely suitable for step-down features or ramps due to its tread rigidity. Moreover, it can improve the stability and overall vehicle’s handling while climbing mountainous areas.

Silica Tread Compound 

Another special thing about the tread is the silica compound. This compound provides wear that helps drive in snowy and slippery conditions.

Traction

The silica tread compound and tread pattern allow the Falken Wildpeak A/T3W to offer A rate of off-road traction whether driving in snow, wet, or dry weather conditions.

Noise

Similar to other AT tires, the Falken Wildpeak A/T3W makes noise when it is on the road. Fortunately, this tire is quiet on the highway.

Heat Diffuser Technology

Don’t be concerned about its temperature. This tire has heat diffuser technology that disperses the heat insides and protects the internal components.

Speed

The speed ranking of this tire is T (190 km/h, 118 mph). The speed rating can adjust when you choose a bigger or smaller tire size. In general, the Falken Wildpeak A/T3W has a regular speed compared to several tires out there. 

Braking

The capability of its braking is excellent. This tire can provide high friction when braking suddenly. So, it is very suitable for driving in wet weather and protecting our safety.

Fuel

Falken Tires have utilized the Advanced 4D Nano technology to reduce heat absorption, improve traction, and increase fuel efficiency. They claimed that this technology could decline our car’s fuel consumption by nearly 5%.

Handling

The Falken Wildpeak A/T3W still maintains better handling for almost all terrains. Furthermore, this tire is very efficient in controlling while taking sharp turns at high speeds. 

Comfort

Because of being an AT tire, its ride comfort is not friendly for anyone. The drivers may feel uncomfortable due to its noise and weight.

Falken Wildpeak A/T3W Review: Pros & Cons

Pros
  • Excellent traction in dry, wet, and snowy conditions
  • Provide higher friction and protect our safety
  • Amazing stability and handling
  • Affordable price
Cons
  • Disappointing mud and sand traction
  • Not very impressive ride comfort, especially while driving for a long time

Tire Drive Test

After using the Falken Wildpeak A/T3W, we can evaluate some significant features of this tire. The unique tread pattern and traction are working for us, particularly while driving in wet, snowy conditions. The braking is effective when we stop suddenly. 

However, the Advanced 4D Nanotechnology seems disappointing. It does not save our fuel consumption, according to the brand’s statement. The traction is also not efficient in muddy conditions. 

Another thing that we do not like is the comfort. If we drive for a short distance, it is totally fine. On the contrary, this tire is not comfortable for those who travel for a long time as it is heavy and makes noise.

In conclusion, compared to its economic price, we think that the Falken Wildpeak A/T3W is worth buying. It provides features that are suitable for most drivers. So, it’s time for you to decide whether to purchase it or not!

    These tires are great. Smooth and controlled, I went through a 100-yard mud pit. I turned around to do it again, nearly got stuck, but the more the tires gripped the ground the better they helped me get out. The best noise, ride, function, and price of road tires in this price range is hands down.

    This is my third set of these tires, which I used on two different Ford F-150s. These tires are great and look amazing. Amazing snow traction. Look great. For an aggressive-looking tire, they are not noisy. These are the tires I will have on my wheel going forward.

    These tires were purchased a week before I left for my summer vacation to North Carolina’s Outer Banks. Nearly 2,000 miles of highway driving was required for this trip. They performed well on the highway with smooth handling, sharp corners, and minimal noise in comparison to Bridgestone H/Ts. The tires also saw off-road action as we stayed in Corolla, NC’s 4×4 section. This requires you to drive on the beach to reach our houses. For beach driving, the tires could be inflated to as low as 15 PSI. They never lost traction nor got stuck in the soft sand. These tires are a great option for anyone looking for an affordable all-terrain tire.

    Second set of AT3W tire; first set on Jeep with 12K mile, now on truck. The best AT tire for daily street/highway use, and all other tires are distant second. This rubber has excellent dry and wet traction. It cuts through standing water well and is very quiet. I can tow nearly 7k lb. These XL load rated tires are great for towing and riding on boats. The Falken Wildpeak AT3W tire is a great choice! The falken MT is also available in 35s, and they are awesome. Get the Falkens.

    Although I haven’t driven a lot, 50% of my driving time has been in the city. 25% on the highway and 25% off the road. They are exactly what I was looking for: a smooth all-terrain vehicle that is quiet and easy to drive, but also looks great in mud or soggy grass. Without even using 2wd, I was able pull a full-size SUV out of a ditch in a muddy backyard/pasture. They will be rotated and if they last as long as they are rated, I would say they’re hard to beat. But time will tell.
