@SCRunner12

Your truck was one of the few google images I've been studying, haha.

I really like the look of the sidewalls, the price point ($208 for the 34's), and the fact they are siped for winter driving. I'm just still on the fence how these would hold up on the harder Colorado trails. After last summers duratrac fail, I'm looking for other options but not sure I really want to step up to a mud terrain since we do a lot of snow driving here.

Cheers.

Haha that's pretty funny, let me know if you want any other pictures, happy to take some and post them up. I usually don't go for new/unproven tires, but I really liked these and was able to see them in person prior to buying. Also in the end I paid $625 shipped to me for them with all the rebates out there. Can't beat that for 34's.

While the Passenger tire version was attractive in price, I share your concern. I have Colorado trips planned, so I sprung for the 10-ply load range E 285/70 R17, which arrive Tuesday. I suppose we'll see what happens. I have a feeling that I'm also going to have to get creative to fit these things with the tiny lift I have at the moment...

I have these in stock size, 265/70/17. SCRunner12's review is pretty spot on They are pretty quiet compared to stock tires. So far, I'm happy with them especially since I got them for a good price. I haven't had a chance to wheel with them yet, but when I do, I'll chime back in.

Just ordered mine off of Amazon you have to love the free shipping with prime to Alaska I'm not sure how they can make money with them at $148.65 each with shipping included. Tire Rack charges 380$ to ship a set of tires to Anchorage. They will be here Monday stock size and I can't wait to try them out.

Buddy of mine is running these, in 35" flavor




Those of you thinking about running 34", these are currently the most reasonably priced set you can buy right now. Really liking the improvements they make over the existing Wild Peaks. I know the lack of inside tread depth on the siping was a sore subject, so it looks like that was one of the first things they changed.

I really like the Goodyear SilentArmor tire. They drove perfectly on the highway and in sand, snow, water - they performed flawlessly. I did not do much in the mud, but a buddy and I got off track wheeling one day in my old Xterra and ended up in an el arroyo that had lots of water. Almost to the door sills, no worries, got out without any issues.

Where's the cheapest place to buy these? Are you guys finding better prices at local shops or through amazon / Discount tire direct?

Don't love my Toyo AT2s and looking for something different.

Did you get the standard load version or the higher load version (LT)? The LT is quite heavy compared to the stockers, especially for the size, it seems? Thx.

I was also considering these but for the equivalent size, they seem to be on the heavier side by a few pounds, even heavier then the ST Maxx. The price is definately attractive but the weight....

Going to mount these tomorrow. Load range E 285s. Impressed with the tread depth and siping, these should be fantastic in the snow but will have to report back next winter on that.

Received mine on Monday and after two tries of getting them mounted at one place finally took it somewhere where an appointment gets honored. So far in city driving they are as quiet as the stock duelers.





Heated seat kits arrived today hopefully have time to install them this weekend.

A little mini first impression review, since these things are still semi-new to the market:

Got mine mounted today: 285/70 R17 load range E. My 4Runner is a 2015 with KDSS and a Daystar 1.25" spacer in the front. Otherwise stock.

I removed the mud flaps and also the little rocker cover thingies just to be safe and avoid drama at the tire shop. I've added the rocker covers back, but will need to heat up and flatten out the mud flaps before reinstalling. I also did the fender liner mod last weekend.

So far, the only rubbing with the minor flexing I've done is on the bumper lip inside the wheel well with the wheel turned. I need to trim the bumper flush with the shifted fender liner. I'm sure I'll find more when I flex it and take it off roading.

These tires really are great looking, and shockingly quiet. They produce a small amount of road noise compared to the stock duelers, but no hum like most ATs. I've had BFG KOs and Toyo AT (not AT2...) which were FAR louder than these. I'm still surprised. I'm sure they'll get louder with wear, but this is dead silent for an AT.

I haven't had them in mud or on rock, so I can't comment on off road traction. The lugs are very very deep, and there is considerable siping, so I'm optimistic about wet weather and snow traction.

These beasts are heavy, though. As expected, I notice it over bumps and a bit during acceleration (which is potentially partly due to the diameter increase as well).
