The car forum world is kind of funny like that. It takes only a couple people and good or bad about something can spread like wildfire. I remember when I was on the wrangler forums everyone went crazy for Rancho RS9000Xl shocks because a few people posted that they liked them. Drove me nuts haha.

I'm a firm believer in just trying things for myself because analysis paralysis on forums can get exhausting.

What size and rating? And how long ago was this?

I have two theories:

1.) Tire manufacturer has a specific size that suits that particular vehicle really well (stock rims with no trimming or lift)

2.) The thread found the right place among the right members - input from seasoned members or very descriptive reviews and pictures answer some of the unknowns for would-be shoppers and buyers

Either way itís better than reading faceless reviews online from people who may not have even had them on your same make and model of vehicle. Discount tire reviews do show vehicle make/model of the reviewer, but it doesnít mean your vehicle will be in the reviews.

Forum threads and pics are great and I regard membersí thoughts and experiences much more highly than any alternative. Love it here.

I bet you could have your tire shop order them for you under contingency that you only take them when made in USA.
The shop that does my tires/lift/etc said they had a supplier with USA made Falkens. They have never given me a reason to question their word, so take that for what little it's worth haha.

265/70 17 w/ an Eibach Pro Truck lift kit. The ride is noticably better than factory, and the handling is much improved.

I'm so glad to see your post. Been contemplating pulling the trigger on the Eibach lift. Thanks for your feedback!!

Love mine,the 265/70r17 was a good fit for me, way cheaper than the 275/285 and even though I did put a small lift on (2Ē/1Ē) Iím still keeping them when most everybody jumps to the 285ís.No trimming,get to keep my mudflaps,no change in gearing needed which is good since we pull a small camper every now and then etc etc,the 4runner is a good daily driver/weekend beach or light trail rig, this size tires has worked great so far

You just reinforced the fact I stated that the P Rated Falken is heavier than the KO2 C Load in the same size.

my roommate has them and its a joke lol my tire looks way bigger more square and looks more like a 285 k02 than a 265in real life that is

on paper ya both are 265s and the flakens are 1lb heavier but in real life you will see why its 1lb heavier lol

There is a structural difference between SL and C load. The C would be expected to weigh more.

By most accounts, it's a great tire. I don't dispute that. In stock size SL though, it is 5-7 lbs heavier than most P rated ATs.

like i already explained look at the picture i posted above the 265s are a 1/4 from touching my bumper.. they fit like 285s and more square

its heavier than most 265s is because you shouldnt compare it with other 265s SL rated but a 275 or 285..
