Following Falken Tires’ recent selection as OE tire to the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, the tire company expands its partnership with FCA US to become the original equipment supplier for the 2020 Jeep Gladiator.
The new Gladiator will come with Falken’s Wildpeak A/T AT3W, sized LT285/70R17 (116/113Q-rating) as standard fitment, while also available will be the LT285/70R17 (116/113Q) Wildpeak M/T (Mud Terrain).
“This is quite an honor for Falken to be chosen as an original equipment supplier to a brand new vehicle for FCA,” stated David Colletti, Falken’s Vice President, Original Equipment. “Our OE program with the automaker continues to expand and we’re very excited to place our product on the Jeep Gladiator.”
The Wildpeak A/T3W is engineered for adventure, any time and in any weather. The A/T3W combines aggressive off-road ability and rugged terrain driving without compromise when on the pavement. The optimized tread design, combined with a silica tread compound, enables the A/T3W to excel in three areas: wear, winter and wet performance.
Available as an option to the Gladiator, the Wildpeak M/T is tough-tested and its capabilities well-proven through multiple off-road victories since the tire’s launch. The Wildpeak M/T also features exceptional road manners, thanks to an optimized variable three-pitch tread pattern and precision manufacturing technology.
“We know Jeep fans have been waiting for a truck like this,” noted Colletti, “and all of us at Falken are so proud of being able to help bring the vehicle to market. The Gladiator is an instant hit.”
