FOR those who genuinely need a mud-terrain tyre, the Wildpeak MT01 is the Falken muddy that benefits the most from years of off-road competition development.

A three-ply ‘Duraspec’ sidewall with an extra two-ply that wraps around protects against the harsh impacts of rocks, sticks and other nasties that threaten to puncture tyres in the bush.
Like the A/T3W, the rugged tread blocks of the MT feature steps to support the tread and maintain contact patch when cornering for improved handling and braking on wet, dry, sealed or dirt roads. Ridges between the tread blocks are there to help eject rocks and mud that would otherwise press through the tyre and puncture it.
Tyre noise and road manners aren’t up to the standards of an all-terrain or highway tyre, but the tread pattern of the MT01 has been optimised to deliver the best on these fronts without compromising off-road ability. When the going gets real tough, the side lugs at the upper edge of the tread shoulder are designed to take full advantage of low tyre pressures and provide extra grip.
We took the Wildpeak MT01 through some mud and rocks and found it delivered what it promised. We only dropped to 20psi and it crawled nicely over rocks, squirmed through the mud, and cleared itself quickly with a bit of wheel speed.
The Wildpeak MT01 is available in a range of popular off-road sizes to fit 15- to 20-inch wheels.
