Falken Tires chosen as OE tire to 2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road

Falken Tires has been chosen as the original equipment supplier to the new 2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road.

The tire selected is the Falken Wildpeak All-Terrain (or A/T) Trail 01A, size 225/60R18 (100H-rating), and will be supplied for the first time to RAV4s beginning in late 2019. Tires for the vehicle will be produced in Japan starting in the third quarter of this year.

“The dedicated Wildpeak A/T Trail will be the exclusive OE tire on the TRD Off-Road, and we are very pleased to support Toyota with this product, and honored to become a supplier to the highly respected TRD model line,” stated David Colletti, Falken’s Vice President, Original Equipment.

The Wildpeak A/T Trail is Falken’s first all-terrain category tire that has been developed and marketed specifically for crossover vehicles. Falken has already earned high marks for its durable, optimal off-road-capable line of products under the Wildpeak name, and the new A/T Trail will quickly complement a vehicle category that is in high demand.

“Most tire manufacturers typically target trucks and SUVs with their all-terrain product,” noted Colletti, “but increasing demand for both rugged and capable crossovers requires the need for a tire earmarked for this category and vehicle.

“Toyota realized its customers wanted a specially tuned RAV4, and based on Falken’s strong connection to high performance, encouraged Falken to provide them with a dedicated tire,”Colletti added. “We’re proud to introduce the Wildpeak A/T Trail 01A as the result.”
