Tires are any vehicles interface with the world. Off-road they meet demands that are unparalleled in any other automotive sport. Crashing into big rocks at speed in the dirt, spinning on solid or loose surfaces, fighting the laws of physics with torque and horsepower yielding smoke or burnt rubber, wet, dry, hot and cold, fast or slow we ask a lot of tires off-road. Add in loads of camping gear and highway speeds and a tire’s job becomes that much harder. Ultimate Adventure is one hell of a tire beat-down and everyone knows it. The UA is a week long on- and off-road flog fest with vehicles of different sizes and types, all traveling over different terrains at different speeds. This event is hard on equipment, hard on tread, sidewalls, radials and plys, hard on rubber in general, luckily Falken is up to the task with their competent and durable tires. Last year was Falken’s first UA and their WildPeak MTs shone through the rain getting traction where other tires struggled, resisting punctures, cuts and tears where lesser tires have failed. Falken brought a slew of tires to the trail and one sick rig, the JK based Falken Tire Recon chase truck. All of the tires and the Falken rig, with Andrew Hoit or codriver Martin Castro behind the wheel, made UA 2015 look easy. The aggressive tread of the WildPeak MTs pulled us over rocks, through mud and down the road despite the ceaseless rain or unknown terrain. We are happy to welcome Falken back for more tire abuse and off-road action. We know their tires are up to the task with a honed tread design, strong sidewalls, and a dialed compound. Let’s get to Ultimate Adventuring!
