The Wildpeak H/T delivers a 60,000-mile limited warranty, and features Falken’s specially designed tread pattern which optimizes traction, control and durability.
A key market for the WildPeak H/T is ½-ton to ¾-ton pickup owners of the Ford F150, Chevy Silverado and Dodge Ram, with up to 40 choices offered in OE diameters.
“We are excited to build on our success and momentum in the Light Truck category with the expansion of the Wildpeak family of products. The Wildpeak A/T, launched in early 2010, has received stellar reviews from the media, and we have every reason to believe the new HT is going to continue carrying the Falken brand message in the same high quality, high performance direction,” stated Hoit,
“The H/T integrates important features that enable improved gas mileage, along with a wide steel belt, which dramatically enhances rigidity of the tread and provides improved handing and high-speed stability; a high tension casing ply that balances both driving stability and overall comfort. These benefits make Wildpeak H/T a highly functional all-season tire.” Falken’s Wildpeak product lines continue to serve as the Official Truck Tire of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series, and will be on display at all race events throughout the 2012 season.
FALKEN TIRE, a Sumitomo Rubber Industries brand, was launched in its native country of Japan in 1983 and introduced to the North American market two years later. At its inception, Falken was created as the flagship high performance radial brand under Ohtsu Tire and Rubber. Now, more than two and a half decades later, Falken has become a well-known, stand-alone brand that focuses on UHP (Ultra High Performance) products while utilizing professional motorsports to further develop and improve products for worldwide distribution.
Falken Tire prides itself on its in-house branding and creative capabilities designed to assist the consumer by providing key information on its brand and multiple product lines. The fully staffed advertising department and motorsports team also strive to help Falken Tire fully maximize exposure and build upon its successes through the company’s American Le Mans and Formula Drift programs. Falken’s uncompromising Formula Drift program captured the 2011 championship for the second year in a row, and its ALMS team brought home two wins in the extremely competitive GT class of the American Le Mans Series.
The tire manufacturer also has made great strides in the off-road category, showcasing the capabilities of Falken’s WildPeak All-Terrain tire at multiple events across the country. Falken also serves as the Official Truck Tire of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series and enjoys strong ties to Defending Champion Ryan Villopoto.
