I ran 265/70R17 in E load on my previous 2016 4Runner and always had balance problems. I honestly lived with it since I liked everything else about the tire (rugged as hell, great snow performance, good looking, good price), but I'm seriously considering avoiding Falken this time around since looking back on the whole thing having to have tires re-balanced constantly and never being quite right was really frustrating. I actually was also running SCS wheels at that point (plan on keeping with the stock TRD Pro wheels this time around).

I probably had Discount Tire re-balance my Falkens at least 3 or 4 times, and every time I felt like they were better for a few thousand miles and would then start to degrade again...

Skip the Falkan's, one of the worse snow tires, and horrible in mud. Checkout the new Firestone Destination XT

Thanks, It donít make sense. I have never had a issues with tires on my Toyotaís getting them balanced. Brand new SCS wheels. 2 different sets of 10 ply for the front no good. And tried 4ply no good. The 4plys took less weight. After putting the Nittoís on no problem. Alignment would not cause this. Especially when I had no issue with my Pro factory wheels. And no issues with my new wheels. I know there are plenty of posts where guys fought trying to keep them balanced. To me itís not worth the hassle.

To each his own I guess. I originally went with Falken Wildpeaks and seems everyone loves them. I had a bad experience with them though. They wore super fast and around 30K miles in they all started the brown blooming real bad and I replaced them.

I switched up the General AT2 which are being replaced by ATX. Had those on my last 4th Gen for 50K with 0 issues and when I sold it they still had a little less than half tread life left. My friend has the car now and said he has put on about 20K more miles and still loves the tires.

But I read bad stories on the General tires that worked for me and vice versa.

you sacrifice wet traction big time w/ KO2's.. and i think you can say the same for any tire w/ big fat treads.. if you're willing to sacrifice cool factor then get some Michelin LTx defenders from costco which are currently on sale right now..very good performing all season tires but they'll think it's your grandpa's 4runner.. also comes in LT flavor for those rough unpaved county fair parking lots

I sent a price match to discount tire for the Falken A/T3W from Walmart for $188. I think what I've learned from this is that I would much prefer a C class tire which that seems to fit the bill. I can get the BFG KO2 for $214/each, but the E class will be too much for what I need. I see they used to have C class for those but do they no longer make that?

Discount tire approved the price match for the Falken Wildpeak AT3W LT275/70R17 for $183.82 ea. Just want to double check they'll fit with no rubbing issues?

If you need real traction this is a good choice. I am not off road too much so the plan is for the Cooper AT3/4S next time around.

Yup cooper AT3 XLT will fit your bill. Make sure itís the XLT version, aggressive sidewalls and drives similar to stock tires.

Those have a different offset than say the TRD OR or SR5 wheels. They are more likely to rub on a stock 4Runner with larger-than-stock tires. But you can probably eliminate any rub with the known techniques.
