Falken Wildpeak WP AT01
while driving a Suzuki grand vitara
Driving on a combination of roads
for 6000 average
Had these tyres on with the car when I bought the car. They are 3 years old and holy crap they are horrible in the rain. It's so scary in the rain. There is 0 grip. If I'm going up a steep hill it doesn't even manage, just spinning and spinning and spinning, people will be passing me on a single carriage way until I engage my 4x4. They are awesome in the dry and even off road, I even went through some semi hard trails and they did well. However, in the rain, oh man. A death wish.
I've been reading on these tyres and apparently after just 2 or 3 years they become completely useless in the rain, even if there is still lots of thread left (which mine has tons left). I even keep the tyres slightly deflated as I off road often but oh my days it's scary af. Now I am looking at some new AT's and I hope the next ones will be MUCH better then these Wildpeak AT01's
