The Falken WildPeak A/Ts ride as smoothly as any tire we've tried, no doubt partly thanks to the continuous center rib. Since the rubber compound seemed a little soft on these tires, we decided to try and peel some tread off them on pavement. At 35 psi, the tires felt a little squishy but still firm. We think this may have something to do with the rubber compound. We weren't able to chunk the tread blocks or cause any "irregular" damage, but we definitely burned off the tire-molding compound. Though the soft rubber may lead you to believe that this tire will wear quickly, Falken does offer a 50,000-limited-mileage warranty.
