Review Of Falken Wildpeak AT tires at about 3000 miles.
Size 245/17/65 so far very happy with tires
I miss spoke in the video, noise starts at 40 mph and stop at around 55mph.
I am hoping this maybe a balancing issue and it will go away next tire rotation and balancing.
I will let you know. Over all I like the tires , they are smooth on the road and quit for the most part.They are wearing pretty evenly so far. Honda is not known for the sound damping ability read any review and you will see. Provided the world does not end in the next few years we will up size to a sequoia for our vacation SUV !!!
I would say lost about a mile per gallon after getting these tire on.
Climb - Pikes Peak Hill Climb with a Monster
Ride on the bumper of a screaming 910hp, Twin-turbo, All-wheel Drive, 150 mph Suzuki SX4 as it races up one of the world's most dangerous hills. An attempt by the "Monster" to break his own record of 10:01:41...
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (June 29, 2010) -- For the fifth consecutive time, Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima combined experience, skill and Falken Tires to claim overall victory in the 88th running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
Although he did not set a new Pikes Peak record, one day before his 60th birthday, Tajima continues to hold the current overall record for reaching the peak, beating hill climb veterans Paul Dallenbach and Rhys Millen in the Unlimited Class. He drove his new 910-hp Monster Sport Suzuki SX4 Hill Climb Special on Falken WildPeak A/T tires, the powerful new line of all-terrain, all-season tires Falken launched this past April.
Following Exhaustive tests in a Japanese wind tunnel facility, Monster's 2010 Pikes Peak race car underwent extensive aerodynamic changes to better adapt to the modified road surface on the race to the clouds, which assumed a smoother tarmac and less gravel than last year. Thinning air ascending the mountain robs most motors of their power by 30 or more percent, but the increase in horsepower over last year's race car helped push the driver forward.

2010 Tierra Del Sol 4x4 with Falken Tire
Last weekend marked the 48th annual Tierra Del Sol Desert Safari in Ocotillo Wells, CA, and Falken Tires first year as an event sponsor and supporter. Despite forecasts of inclement weather, enthusiasts in RVs and Off Road vehicles were out in full force. Falken Tire was present with a compound complete with their trademark blue and teal scalloped Falken Motorsports rig as well as full vendor participation and R/C race track setup from HPI Racing.
Although there were high gusts early in the week, the winds died down Thursday allowing for Falken staff and enthusiasts alike to truly appreciate the terrain and vehicles. Falken gave its SEMA project Jeep JK a workout, equipped with Wildpeak A/T tires. Over the course of 4 days, the Falken Tire JK and Wildpeak A/T tires were put to the test, enduring all types of conditions from hard packed dirt to crumbling sand - these tires were able to conquer it all!
The Wildpeak A/T is currently available in 27 sizes ranging from 15-20 rim diameters and up to 33 tall. An additional 17 LOD (Large Overall Diameter) sizes up to 37 tall will launch in the fourth quarter of 2010. The Wildpeak A/T features a durable 3 ply sidewall (most sizes), allowing enthusiasts to venture wherever they desire, both on and off road.
Friday night activities featured an open invitation bonanza at the Falken Tire compound, with complimentary Carne Asada tacos and refreshments. Enthusiasts and off-road industry experts joined Team Falken crew members for the evening cook-out as a nice way to end the week by the campfire. Saturday, the Tierra Del Sol staff held their annual raffle in which Falken contributed one set of Wildpeak A/T tires, one set of High Country tires, and 5 HPI R/C Crawler King trucks. With over 8,000 people in attendance, Tierra Del Sol was an overwhelming success for Falken and the launch of the new Wildpeak A/T product line and events campaign.
Next stop for the Wildpeak A/T tour: Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah!
