    Mine are super quiet, however, they are brand new. Like all tires with very aggressive tread, mileage will make them noisier as time goes by.

    I bought them at a Goodyear dealer, all 5 installed, balanced, out the door for $960.00, and got a $62 rebate visa card in the mail a few weeks later from goodyear. So $898.00 after it was all said and done.

    I can vouch for these. I have them on the wife's 4Runner and I think they might just be the best tires ever made. They do not look aggressive but they pull like hell and just flat out perform and I am not sure if they will ever wear out. My dad has had a set on his 05 Tundra for years and they have 70k miles on them and don't even look half worn. Then you have me buying tires every 25k because I want to look cool.

    I just switched to these from running Duratrac's for years. Don't get Duratrac's. They look cool but don't balance for crap and will wear out fast. I am happy with my Nitto's so far.

    Another one for Falkens I am averaging 21-22mpg
    265/75r16 SL rated, lightweight, they perform flawlessly and they’re cheap :thumbsup:
    They look much better in person

    Agreed.... and, you're going to hear them forever because they seem to last forever. I had ~40k on mine and they still had significant tread left... on my FJ. They did get louder as time passed, and they seemed to need rotation and balance regularly.

    Also consider Goodyear Silent Armor? I got about 90k out of a set of those on my FJ. Not the most aggressive tread, but super quiet and performed pretty well on the street. Don't know too much about offroad in them.

    What size do you have?

    Mines are 265/75r16 116T which is a P rated tire in a SL (standard load), weight capacity per Falkens website is 2,762lbs

    Anyone here tried the Goodyear Trailrunner AT? I have been thinking of those but haven’t seen many reviews or recommendations about them.

    Ive had 2 sets of the Hankooks on my last Taco. Good tire cheap and light. Both sets lasted about 55-60k
    I have toyo at2 now Great tire as far as ride quality, quiet, and fuel mileage, BUT at 50k they are bald! for the price the Hankooks are better.
    Just ordered the Falkins, Good price, aggressive look, and pretty good reviews. We will see?

    I have the KO2s in a 255/75/17 with a C Load rating and my fuel mileage has been about the same as my stock tires were as well. I do notice that the C load is firmer though. I might need to lower the PSI though, currently running 35 cold.

    I feel good going with at3w knowing that a few here have had the experience with it and loved it. Only had 2 choice really, ko2 and at3w. Really don’t want to take a hard hit on mpg d/t being my daily.
