It’s easy to understand why Jeep Gladiators are becoming some of the most sought-after trucks in the country. Jeeps first came with pickup beds all the way back in 1947, when Willys rolled out the 4×4 Truck. Decades came and went, and so too did the Jeep pickup; the latest dry spell lasted 27 years, as the last Comanche was made in 1992. With the Gladiator now in showrooms, the off-road community is cheering loudly for Jeep.
And now, there’s even more reason to celebrate the Gladiator. Falken Tire recently announced that it was selected by Jeep as the OE tire supplier for all forthcoming 2020 Gladiators. It’s great news for any off-roader, as the tire he’ll be crushing terrain with will be well-suited and ready for battle.
In terms of specifics, the 2020 Gladiator will come standard with Falken Wildpeak A/T3W tires. These all-terrain tires will come in the LT285/70R17 size, or roughly 33 inches in diameter. Additionally, a buyer can opt for the Wildpeak M/T, also in the LT285/70R17 size. As mud-terrains, these tires will suit any driver looking to do a hefty share of off-roading while also having pleasant road manners.
We’ve previously reviewed both of these tires on our prerunner project – Project Storm Trooper. Based off of a 2005 GMC Canyon, the truck has been through a number of upgrades, and these tires were definitely two of the most fun modifications we tried out.
