Falken High Country All Terrain TirePosted in How To: Wheels Tires on September 1, 2010 0) (
When we set out looking for a tire for our own use, we usually come up with one that's tried and true, or one that's so full-on new that most people haven't heard of it. That's one reason we recently tested the High Country All Terrain from Falken Tire.?>
"Falken who?" you ask? Falken has been around quite a while as a niche manufacture of high-quality tires for sport compacts and the coffee-can exhaust crowd. Falken's success in making high-performance tires allowed it to start making tires that wheelers could use, with both all-terrain and mud variations to come. Falken also offers a more streetable Wildpeak tire in popular sizes, but for our testing we decide to use the more dirt-friendly all-terrains.?>
We ordered a set of 31-10.50x15 All Terrains, as they are the perfect fit for our CJ-2A test mule. The overall diameter of 301/2 inches works perfectly in this application and is still a popular size among the light-duty wheeling crowd or newbies into the sport. With a a load range rating of C, this radial tire fits the bill for what many a wheeler needs.?>
We took it to our local 4x4 skate park and put it through the paces of mud, rocks, sand, dirt, and highway. After a thorough day of testing in all terrains, we decided to keep the Falken High Country All Terrain on our ride for extended testing. We're happy to report that this isn't a tire we'll be giving up soon.
