Falken Tires selected as OE fitment on 2020 Jeep Gladiator

Jun 7, 2019   Tier Suppliers

Falken Tires will become original equipment on the 2020 Jeep Gladiator, the tyre maker has announced.

The choice of tires for the new Gladiator truck are 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).

The tread design, combined with a silica tread compound, enables the A/T3W to excel in three areas, Falken said: wear, winter and wet performance.

Available as an option to the Gladiator, the Wildpeak M/T features an optimised variable three-pitch tread pattern and precision manufacturing technology, according to Falken.

“It is is quite an honour 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.”

Falken Tires were also selected as the OE tire to the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon earlier this year.
