    No wild peak here but the "new" 08 came with 245/75/16 Rocky Mountains, guessing these were older model Falken ATs. Look and ride good, treadwear = 50000 so I'll have them awhile it seems. Might be considering Falkens again when going to 265/70/16s next set depending on how these hold up. So far, so good.........

    If I was to switch from MTs to ATs, the Wild Peaks/Rocky Mountians and ATMs are the two I would choose from.

    Also the Falkens come in every size you can imagine.

    I had them in 265/75/16 and while I was happy with the look, I was not happy with their physical weight. Falken only offered this tire size in a 10 ply, load range E which made them fuggin' heavey... 56 lbs. to be exact. I had them mounted and noticed a tremendouse power loss right away. Took them off, sold them to a guy with a duramax, and picked up Hankook Dynapro ATs. Much, much happier.

    I also have these and they are very heavy. They look badass, are very quiet and seem to be wearing very well. Next time, I will be buying a lighter tire. BTW, I have the 285/75/16 size.
