Default 1.9 RC4WD Falken Wildpeak A/ts

RC4WD Falken Wildpeak A/T 1.9 Scale Tires

Looks like these just came out and they look great but...really...4.82"

It's an AT tire, those types of tires would be best at C1 size IMO

Saw the email and was quite surprised they made a Falken after axial did one... One has to wonder why Falken out of all tires...

That's a big @$$ 1.9. I like it though.

More tires are a good thing. Keep 'em coming tiny toy truck companies!

I agree completely, being .7" shorter (and narrower to keep it still scale) would have been perfect....I'm never seen 48" A/T's before.

Axial did the MT, RC4WD did the AT so its all good. Would be weird if an RC4WD came out with another MT

Im not a Falken fan, but its amazing how detailed RC4WD and others have gotten with mold making and can make spot on scale versions.

Yeah I know I still find it kinda weird.

More scale tires. What a great time to be in the hobby.

It does seem silly to make such a big A/T tire but pit bull did it with the growler and no one complained.

No complaints here

The X2SS compound is great, so mud performance might lack a little but on rock I see these doing pretty well.

Falken is actually a really hot tire in the 1.1 off road community. Im with everyone on this though. Why so tall? Why so wide?

The new MT is a hit. However I've always joked that the Falken AT is the only tire to look bald at 50%

Any opinions about the performance of these tires? I have never found any reviews or interesting information at all.

I have a set of these and like them alot. They actually work much better than they look. I run them on gmade steelies and the rig is close to 8lbs also running Crawler Innovations Lil nova foams, medium in the rear and soft in the front...

they clean out fairly well and work good in loose dirt as well as the rocks..even when wet. I think they are a good all around choice for crawling and trailing.
