Found these tires on craigslist. $540 for a set of 4 10ply Falken high country A/T. LINK --> http://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/ptd/2850580355.html



Seems like a good deal for decent tire or should I stay away?

I would check the date of manufacture to make sure they are new. Tires age even without use.

Heard the Falkens are heavy and that they become hard to balance with miles....just what I heard. Seems like a solid deal though bud...go for it

I wouldnt see why you cant get good mileage out of them. Just rotate them regularly like you should. I run all over the place on mine. These pipeline mats tear tires up big time. You will see a small drop in mpgs but nothing retarded. I still get 17-18 ish when on the highway. And I usually run 70-80. So your decision. Good luck

Def sounds like a good deal to me. Why can't I find stuff like this on CL? I look almost daily and never come across anything good for my rig except for the occasional scam.....

The picture definitely isn't of the Falken High Country, looks more like the wild peak. Upon closer inspection, the sticker actually says Wild Peak.

I ran the High Country's for about 18-20k miles, they had total 25k "ish" on them. They ran great and still had plenty of tread left. I could have easily gotten 35-40. The performed well for me but I really wanted a more aggressive looking AT. I've heard mixed reviews about the Wild Peak, I would be leery. The High Country doesn't look as "cool" but seems to get better across the board reviews.
