Like two boxers locked in a title slugfest, NEXEN and Falken have both been landing solid blows. These are two welterweight companies punching above their class. Of course they’re not true top-ranked heavyweights like Bridgestone, Goodyear and Michelin, but they are amassing solid records by by scoring important OE contracts. The latest: Falken’s Wildpeak M/T has been chosen as the official tire on Jeep Wrangler Rubicon models. NEXEN strikes back, winning O.E. on Volkswagen Jetta. Falken springs off the ropes with a counter punch to supply Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid. Sensing their prey has been stunned, Falken closes in for the knockout. With a lightning fast Nissan one-two, Falken jabs with Rogue SV and then winds up the Altima haymaker. Ka-bam! Falken wins this bout, but NEXEN went the distance. We’ll await the next announcement from our neutral corner as I’m all out of boxing cliches.
In case you needed just one or two more reasons to start selling Falkens – here you go. Falken has added road hazard coverage to just about everything they sell with the exception of their RT615 road race tires and their M/T. Only tires sold after January 1st 2019 count. They’ll cover the first 3/32nds or 2 years, whichever comes first. And if you’d like to hear more about it, just buy 12 of their tires to sign up on the Fanatic program and Falken will fly you out to California, all expenses paid, for an in-depth brainwashing at the Falken Academy. Ride and drives on California Motor Speedway, off-road Jeep adventures, and some good old classroom sessions. And don’t even get me started on the extremely cool hotel they put you up at.
