    I do too!! And the thread wear in unbelievable IMO! I’ve had my 245’s for 2.5 years and they still look new! I did want to go up in size though and if at all possible go bigger yet stay wih the P rating. :)

    Im running WildPeak AT3W's 265/70r17 and i love the look, they ride nice for an AT tire, traction in the rain and snow is unbelievable. Only thing i was disappointed about is that im losing 2.5MPG. I went from average 19.5MPG to 17MPG and thats with me driving like a snail.

    That is discouraging. I was starting to decide that those should be my next tire, but 2.5 mpgs is a lot. I think what I need to do is just use it as an excuse to move up to a 17 inch wheel, buy some SCS Ray10s, and then I can get some Terra Grappler G2s

    I have to admit though it doesnt seem to happen to everyone. Thats one of the reasons i bought the tire is because of how little i was reading it affects your MPG. I only have ~1700 miles on them so far but i can tell you that i have definitely gone down 2.5MPG.

    Are you running the tires on stock wheels? I just ordered the same tires. Any issues balancing the tires? I read some people recommend road force balancing the tires.

    I’m running them on 17” pro comp 5007 series rims. I bought them as a package from discount tire direct. I had to get 1 tire rebalanced

    Thanks! Those pro comp wheels should be lighter than your stock wheels. Bummer about the lower MPG.

    Just put a set of Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 on my Tacoma (P265/65R17). I have only used them on highway so far, but they are very smooth and quiet. They are definitely more aggressive than the stock tires. I look forward to testing them out in the dirt and snow shortly.

    Love my Cooper STT PRO's. Great off road with decent highway manners. No "give up" in dirt/mud/rock. Got 45K out of first set and they were still able to be sold.

    285/75r16, load range E, on 16"X8" XO "Cast Iron Buck's" 4.5 backset.

    I'm probably the only one on here against the Falken Wildpeaks AT3. Sold them after 1,000 miles and went back to BFG KO2's. They WERE good in the snow. The low load range made them look low on air all the time, even when inflated to about 45 psi, actual tread width was only about 8.5" on a 16"x8" wheel, and tread depth looked like they were at 1/2 life when brand new. I wanted a more aggressive A/T tire though and have used the KO2's on multiple vehicles, so maybe I had different expectations, and the Faulken's didn't meet them for me. I had the 265 75 16 by the way and went to 285 75 16 KO2, no difference in road noise, but big difference in better ride quality. Just my opinion and we all have different needs and expectations.

    Man, I loved my BF Goodrich 33” A/T tired on my Wrangler. Known for superstrong sidewalls, and I did everything from a 12 hour 4 WD 101 Class, to how many times I aired down to go wheeling, & pumped them back up with a little car battery-powered air compressor that took a couple minutes per tire, but it worked well!
    But I’m a Taco man now...really thinkin ‘bout the Nitto Ridge Grapplers. By year’s end, I’m savin my pennies. I’ve got a 2018 blazing Blue Pearl Sport. I think I’m set on bronze & black 17” wheels with some 33” Nittos. I’ll post when I get it finished (Bilsteins + Readylift too!)
