Just installed mine over the weekend. Very quiet, and ride great! One of the lighter 285 tires I found. Can't wait to test them in the snow this weekend!

I've been running 285/75/17 Falkens since summer. I've offroaded difficult trails, did a 100 mile Utah backcountry trip, daily drive it, and drive in snow. Given the price and the size options, I'd have to suggest these to most SUV owners. Quiet on the road, and firm enough of a sidewall to offroad with complete confidence.

I've run KO2's, Duratracs, and KM2s in the past - and these handle all of the terrain of offroad/daily with great success.

My only grip is they are not as aggressive looking as say a duratrac, but still aggressive... but given how they perform, oh well.

I like the look! I assume this the stock lift with no spacers?

FIgured they were E but I was confused when he said hard enough sidewall... In my head I'm like "of course E is gonna be hard enough sidewall, it's like driving a damn dump truck!"

Yes, 4th gen stock height and no spacers. Definitely need to push the fender liners and possibly bumper trim. Lift hopefully coming soon though.

Got it. These tires are on my short list for replacement of my OEM Duelers. Would rather not mess around with a lift kit and/or spacers. I'll have to find out when that time comes.

5th gens come with 265/70's stock so you might be good if you stick with that size. Mine had 265/65's from the factory.

Good to know. Thanks for the insight.

These tires have caught my eye once my Firestone Destination's start nearing the end of their lifespan. I'm not sure which size to go with to avoid severe rubbing issues. I have a Limited so the wheels are 18" and I do have a lift (Bilstein 5100's all around set at 0 with Wheelers T12 and T1 springs).

I'd like to bump the tire up to 285 if possible but I also don't want to deal with rubbing and chopping up fender liners etc. Is it possible to move up to 285's or should I just stick with 265/65/18?

You will need to trim, especially since these run a little larger than most 285s

Worth IMO, but it will need to be done. Your alignment (caster numbers) will play a big role in how much is needed. More positive caster helps

I'm at 5.8, chopped the body mount, aftermarket bumper etc and still rub occasionally up front

Very good info, thanks! I guess trimming wouldn't be the worst thing but I don't feel comfortable nor do I know anyone that could do a body mount chop for me if I needed that. I do have some positive caster after the alignment post-lift so that sounds beneficial. Thanks again

Go with a size in between and you should only have to do very minimal trimming
