    Atleast it has a sidewall, unlike the Falken Wildpeaks

    We're biting at the bit to try a set of these out. I have a feeling we are going to see some pretty cool stuff in 2014 involving Falken and this tire.

    Hopefully we will have prices and an ETA soon.

    Knowing this info will help put things in to perspective. Typically, larger/wider means bigger lugs and bigger voids.


    Good eye on the spare not matching. That's a pretty big marketing oversight. I wonder who caught flak for that gaff?


    Sent from a a few tin cans and some string.
    Sidewall says 37x12.50x17

    Nice!

    I was wishing they'd be more creative with their first MT but I guess I can't hate too much, they'll learn. I'm sure they'll come out with better versions over the next few years.

    I talked to one of our friends and Falken and I'm told this is a Prototype still. This model will be used in the 2014 off road race seasons. If all goes well, it should be released to consumers by this time next year.

    Bummer! I will be purchasing my next set of tires in the next 4 to 6 months. I guess these won't be an option for me this time.

    Smart strategy! I like the looks of this tire and will wait to see how it shakes out. By now I think we all know it's a good idea to thoroughly test before going public, unlike some other things happening in the news lately.

    The rig in the picture is actually the Savvy Offroad/Currie Enterprises race rig for the 2014 King of the Hammers Everyman Challenge and Unlimited Race:

    Falken has been a great sponsor for the team, and their A/Ts have proven to be a favorite tough tire for the group. They've been running the A/T for the past season or two now, which is why that's what the spare is. The MTs haven't been proven yet, though they are testing them now:

    And while they put some JK style body panels on the rig, it's far from being one hence why the grill and the rest looks like it does. You can read their build I linked above for more info.

    Welcome to WAYALIFE! It's nice to see you're a big fan of SAVVY, Currie and Falken as they are all great companies. In case you missed it, this isn't Pirate4x4 and if you want to talk about the things you are passionate about, I'd be grateful if you could show a little courtesy and keep the conversations here. Thanks.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
