RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. — FCA U.S. L.L.C. has selected the Falken-brand Wildpeak Mud Terrain (M/T) tire, size LT285/70R17C, as an optional OE fitment on the company's 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, according to Sumitomo Rubber North America Inc. (SRNA), purveyor of the Falken brand.
Falken said the Wildpeak M/T has proven to be a rugged and capable tire since its launch. David Colletti, Falken's vice president, original equipment said it is a "perfect fit for the top-of-the-line Rubicon model.
"There is so much to say about the Jeep brand," Mr. Colletti said. "It's one of the most iconic American vehicle brands and incredible demand for its product continues year after year."
Falken said the Wildpeak M/T is built for versatility and designed to handle pavement, mud, snow or rocks. The tire's three-ply Duraspec sidewall technology, which features two high ply turn-ups that provide an additional layer of protection and durability, withstands off-road conditions.
Nissan North America Inc. recently selected the Falken Sincera SN250A and the Ziex ZE001as OE fitments on the 2019 Nissan Altima sedan and Rogue crossover vehicle, respectively.
