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

    Those things aren't more than 4 years old. Didn't they get released like 2-3 years ago?

    Anyone has experience with these? What is the life expectany of these tires? I need the tires to last at least 50k miles. I put about 20k miles on my truck a year. I have had this truck since August and already put 10k miles on it...

    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

    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.
