These Falken at3w do indeed come in a 285/75/17....hmmmm

I know these are very new, but what are the odds they'll have them in 275/70r/17 in the near future?

I've had the Falken Wildpeaks on my jeep before i traded it for the 4R. i have to say that they're much quieter than the other all terrain tires that I had before. Look for rebates and discounts online to save on these bad boys.

Anyone have any concerns with the sidewalls on these? I think it's only a 2 ply sidewall, but I'll looking for a 285/75/17 all terrain that has stronger sidewalls than the duratrac. It's either these or the Toyo AT2's...

Anyone offroad these Falkens?

FWIW - I have the 285/70/17 AT2s and I've been less than impressed. They've never balanced well - after about 4 trips through the tires shop. Off road they are just okay. Nothing special. I've punctured one on a sharp rock. They're not bad - just kinda meh. I've only had them on for $5-7k miles and already looking to swap them off for something better. IMO the Goodyear ATS I had prior were better at everything in every way, except they're more expensive. I'm probably going to be switching back to ATS or something similar. For the price these Falken tires might be an interesting option. I'd skip the AT2s. Just my opinion.

The size I personally would really love to see would be a 265 80 17. About 33.5 tall and 10.5 wide.

I have zero concerns. I've been off-road a few times over rocks and dead tree limbs with no issues. The sidewalls have extra beefy shoulder blocks that will protect against rocks. They also have a secondary bead apex that also helps protect the sidewall. If you have a spare tire you'll be fine.

Thought I would throw in my two cents about these tires. Got them in the 285/75/17 size about 3 weeks ago for my 06 Tundra. First impressions was damn they look great and are heavy. 10 lb jump from my 285/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers, but they aren't any heavier than the other 285/75/17 options (minus the cooper at3, which is pretty much a street tire IMO). Ride wise these are amazing, silent on the freeway (can't hear them at all) and smooth as butter. The sides flex well but are firm around corners and really grip the road. The load E isn't harsh at all and they have a very deep tread depth. The sidewalls are very beefy and the side lugs help with the aggressive look and feel of the tires. I'm sure they will be helpful when wheeling as well. Haven't had any rain so no reviews on that and don't live by the snow so no help there. Should have them in some dirt soon but this is my DD so no crawling or anything.

Overall so far I'm extremely happy with them and could see these being the last set of tires I buy for this truck. With a 50k mileage warranty and how well they ride there isn't a tire that I would rather have yet (we will see how they wear and do in weather).

305/70/17s generally work out close to 285/75/17 in size. I ran several sets of Duratracs and I don't think any one tire ever had less than 2 plugs in it before it was retired (some a lot more). I'm about to be on my 3rd set of MTRs and have never had to plug or repair a single one. Louder, heavier, harder to balance, requires frequent rotation, flat spots horribly, absolutely useless on ice and packed snow, but damn near unstoppable off road and tougher than nails.

I know these are super new, but has anyone run these and also run the terra grappler g2? Just seeing if the performance of th A/T3W is worth the weight difference (41lbs vs. 46lbs. Stock size p-metric). I know either way I'll be in better shape then with the stock dunlops. Thanks to all of those who have reviewed this new tire option.

As an insider, your statement appears to be a bit biased. I have been running the Hankook DynaPro ATM RF10 Tires on Tundra and gen 3 4Runner through at least three sets with excellent results and good life at about 45k each. I was going to run these on my new 4Runner, but wanted something a little more aggressive with the new KO2s.
