Finding the right all-terrain tyre for your 4WD can be a tricky process. You want something that can handle off-road conditions while still providing good performance on the road. That is why the Bob Jane T-Marts team recently invited Drive to document their tyre testing at Bob Jane’s Calder Park Raceway’s Thunderdome. The tests included braking performance in both wet and dry conditions, a slalom, lane change activity, and a short off-road course. For further consistency, two identical Isuzu D-Max LS-U utes were used, with all tyres being 265/65 R17 size.
The Results of the Tests: Falken Wildpeaks came out on top overall after all categories were scored together. The results showed that these tyres had good traction in wet and dry conditions, excellent wet braking by a larger margin, and great control during lane changes and slalom tests. On top of that, they also performed well in off-road conditions with plenty of grip when cornering.
The other tyres tested included Pirelli Scorpion All-Terrain Plus, J-Trax A/T, Bridgestone Dueler A/T 697, BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain A/T KM3, Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac Yokohama Geolandar X-AT GO16 and BFGoodrich All-Terrain. All of these tyres performed well in most categories but did not match up to the Falken Wildpeak AT3W in regards to overall performance.
For drivers looking to upgrade their 4WD or SUV with an all-terrain tyre that can handle Australian conditions, Falken Wildpeaks are definitely worth considering. The team at Bob Jane T-Marts has put together an impressive testing method that considers many different criteria to determine which tyres are best suited for their customers’ needs. After testing many leading brands, they found that Falken Wildpeaks came out on top as having superior performance in most categories while still maintaining good value pricing.
