Pavement performance—whether dry or wet—was as good as we’ve seen in a mud terrain. With a little over 5,000 miles on them to-date, we’ve worn about an 1⁄8 inch of tread from the rears and maybe half that up front. Not outstanding, but not terrible either, especially considering that this is a competition-spec prototype. Additionally, the contact patch is as even as the day we slapped ’em on. With a revised rubber-compound slated for the production version, we’re holding high hopes that the Falken’s wear characteristics will match the rest of its attributes.
