I'm near Vancouver, Canada and I'm running 265/70-17 wildpeak a/t3w on my 2020 TRD off road and am very happy with them. Initially had some balancing issues but all seems fine now.

It's my daily driver, everything from city commutes to long highway driving, PLENTY of rain+flooded road driving, washboard FSRs and rutted/rocky FSRs, slushy snow and snow up to the skid plates.

Very happy with them

OP, I'd try the Falken AT3W or Toyo AT3.
Yeah i guess tire feel is a subjective thing. Couldve been that i was running them on 18x9s instead of the stockers. Ive been thru a LOT of tires tough, Duratracs were always a favorite, but insanely noisy, Ultraterrains were heavy as hell and ate every. single. rock. you drove over, the KO2s were quiet, but i'd always find them slipping when i'd corner from a stop, and i didnt like the feel. G2s were a good compromise for me. And they're on the 21 TRD pro i just ordered, so thats one less thing on the project list for me..... for now.

Well, feel is definitely subjective. But, wet traction and noise level really aren't. It seems like every tire thread just has similar stories. Some have great experiences with a tire, others have the opposite. I've run a ton of different tires over the years. I never run out a set before changing, going bigger, etc. on the numerous off road cars I've had. You can narrow it down, but you really don't know until you try them yourself.

Lots of reviews. Great.

I live in vancouver canada, and its hills galore. It doesnt take much to lose traction off a start.

Noise is definately a factor for me. My bat like hearing will drive me nuts with any hum. I'll look into all those options.

lol good enough for squamish will be good enough for van. I do frequent the S2S so this is reassuring for the winters.

For those with Falken Wildpeaks, does the 265/70/17 fit onto the spare and still tuck into the cavity of the trunk with enough clearance?

Thinking about getting a 5th tire. I see a good sale online.

I only got 4, but I think 285's fit under? Will let someone else confirm either way.

The wildpeak are only marginally larger in size than OEM

Two winters on my Les Schwab Open Ranges and I'm very happy. Quiet, great in rain (The bomb cyclone last week....) and great in snow. Good mileage also on two trips to Jackson Hole and back. Good luck on your decision!

285 Falken Wildpeak fits in the spare location.

Been running these for a couple years and they hook up great in many PNW conditions w/o feeling squirrely: snow/slush/ice in the Cascades, sand/dunes in Florence OR, forest/trails/light mud in Tahuya, downpour/ice/mall parking lots in Seattle.

I have the steering wheel shakes w/ these but it doesn't bother me. Been lazy looking for a shop to balance these properly, might as well wait to do so on my next set.

Yes, you got it! Interior dry snow...wet snow, they clogged up pretty good, but they performed well on the highway with no issues. Better than the Open Country's that were on it when I bought it...

I have them in 275/10/17 Load C and they have been nothing but spectacular. The road noise is near non existent especially compared to the other main offerings and aren't scary in the rain like the BFG KO2's. Plus they do well in snow.

They look great! Are you on stock suspension? Did you notice a noticeable mpg drop from stock?

I got them in 265s, but 275 seems like a weird choice no? Minimal extra height-ground clearance, but plenty more weight
