Falken Tires was selected by FCA US LLC to provide its Falken Wildpeak A/T3WA as a tire of choice for the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 pickup truck, built at the Sterling Heights Assembly Plant in Sterling Heights, Michigan.
The latest Ram truck recently made its world debut in January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit and will complement the aggressive no-compromise nature of Falken’s Wildpeak A/T3WA tires. Tire sizes for the 2019 Ram 1500 are LT275/65R18C (113/110S) and 275/55R20 (113T). Falken will be the exclusive original equipment supplier on the new 4×4 off-road package. These two sizes of the Wildpeak A/T3WA tires were custom designed and engineered specifically for the Ram 1500 off-road package to meet to the automaker’s stringent technical requirements.
“The all-terrain, any weather rugged capability of our Falken A/T3WA will fit the new Ram 1500 perfectly,” stated David Colletti, Falken’s Vice President, Original Equipment. “Coupling Wildpeak’s aggressive sidewall design and tread pattern with the strength of the Ram pickup will enhance its off-road performance as well as its drivability. Falken is excited to play a role as a valued supplier.”
The Wildpeak A/T3WA has been engineered for adventure, any time and in any weather. An optimized tread design combined with a silica tread compound enable the A/T3WA to excel in three key areas – wear, winter conditions and wet performance. The A/T3WA is packed with technology, from Falken’s patented 3D Canyon Sipes to an all-new proprietary lower sidewall. Full-depth sipes and grooves maintain consistent performance and appearance throughout the life of the tire.
