    Merry Christmas to me! Loving the new tires, but I got about 15mpg on the way into work today... :eek:

    Had these tires in a 10ply, rough ride but super reliable in all weather. Ended up changing out to Dura Trac C rating. Better ride and better gas mileage. Enjoy the Wildpeaks!

    Definitely a stiffer ride than before, which I'm okay with, but I'm a little concerned about the mpg.

    Thanks!

    Lift & sliders & some other stuff.
    I've had these same tires for about 2k now. Great ride on the highway and wet weather. 35 pi all around. I do notice that mpg is less, but if I drive with a lighter foot I can get near the same as with the previous 265/70/16 P rated stockers.Very happy with them.

    Looks good. That is the same tire I am going with on the same SR5 wheels as yours. Going LT-E load rating 265/75/16. I will be using them for camping/off-roading etc. I have Nitto Terra Grappler G2 265/70/17 P rated for daily driving, I couldn’t stand the decrease in MPGs from an E load tire. Hows the ride?

    If you don’t like them, I’ll take them off your hands.

    I didn’t know they made them in C load. I think the weight for E load is 59lbs in 265/75/16 and 46 for SL-P.

    Its a bit stiffer than the stock Firestones, but handles our Missouri potholes really well. Haven't had a chance to take em offroad yet.

    I've put about 6k on my set of Wildpeaks and they have been great all around. I have 265/65R17 XL on some Fuel Mavericks. I was getting 22ish MPG on stock wheels for my 85mi RT for work, but thankfully have still been able to hit 20.7-21MPG with this set up. The ride is quieter and smoother than I expected too..

    I went with the SL's they are a lot lighter / softer ... I just hope they look just as good!

    I'm sorry, I miss informed. They are the "SL" load not "C" load. They do not make them in "C" in the size 265/75/16. The SL's are much quieter/softer/lighter than the Es (11lbs per tire). The only advantace to the E's is they far exceed the tow ratings of the SLs/truck.

    You might be in luck. Supposed to get these put on today but Im kinda second guessing the size I went with. Im thinking I should go ahead and go with 285s and do the CMC.

    If you are serious, I can be in touch.

    Btw, weight for the Es is at 55lbs per tire. Weight for the SLs is at 44lbs per tire.

    I didn't realize that was the only thing preventing me from going with 285s. Even still, these guys are a huge improvement over stock. I may lift a few inches in the meantime and upgrade to 285s in 20-30k.

    I too picked up these tires for Christmas, as well as some new wheels. They will be mounted up tomorrow and will post some pics.

    7B270C11-E07A-47A0-B3AB-6003292E1799.jpg Sorry, lighting is difficult in shade with bright snow and sky. You can tilt the picture right to get a better perspective!

    Switched out stock Goodyears at 985 miles to Wildpeak AT3 265/75-16 SL. They’re great in snow/ice mix with 300 miles so far. Quiet and smooth on dry roads.

    I installed four Bilstein 5100s, .65 inch front, 1/2 inch spacer under rear axle, so just 1 inch total lift along with new tires.

    I liked the soft, compliant stock ride but not the body roll in curves.
    The new shocks transformed the vehicle to a stable and flatter ride on curvy roads with just a slightly firmer ride that is still soft and smooth over large speed bumps.

    Yes, CMC and quite a bit of triming.

    I wanted to see them in person and go from there. I have seen 265/75/16s in person and they looked good. So we shall see if I keep them or do 285s but the 285s open a figurative can of worms.
