Had a set on my 06 WK and they were good on the street. Never had them really off road. Looked nice and fairly quiet. Prob not much help! Gl

I ran a set of 32s on my rig for a while...they were great on the street and were great offroad. Had them through pretty much every type of terrain and they were awesome. They were also quiet on the street.

The only complain I have for them is they're kind of a heavy tire...my 32 falkens were just 6 lbs lighter than my current 35" bfg's

Overall, great tire...had them on for about 25k before I went to 35's

Its a very under rated tire IMHO. I got the Wild Peak version (basically the same tire) on the TJ and it rides smooth compared to when I had km2s.

It is a good looking tire as well as the wild peak at. I am also interested in hearing more about them. I would like to know more specific whether or not it did good in snow but not loose dirt gravel or so on. Thanks

I live in Colorado and they did great in the snow...i also wheeled with them in the snow and they preformed fantastic.

Was very impressed with the tire as an overall "street" and "wheeling" tire.

As stated in my first post, though...they were just a tad on the heavy side.

Thanks a lot, man...the avatar pic was actually taken with those rocky mountains on there

i'm currently running a set of BFG AT's now, though...have always liked them and they arent too heavy of a tire (i'm now running a 35x12.5)

You wont be disappointed with the rocky mountains

The link in post #3 has good info.

But just to recap, Falkens are heavy and they are miserable in eastern U.S. trails. If you are in a desert climate with sand and rocks, go for them. But for wet climates where there is mud, roots, streams, etc. they suck out loud. They also pick up gravel really bad and unload on your rocker panels. The tread is squirmy for the first 5,000 miles and doesn't feel planted on the road. Once they wear to 50% they become a HT tire with 5 solid ribs. Yes, they are inexpensive but you get what you pay for.

I would say southwestern U.S., go for them. Anywhere else, pass and get a real AT tire.

I've had a set for about 10k miles now, on the highway, beach sand, and hard dirt they have done pretty good. They do get clogged up with mud easily and suck when they are clogged. For the 90 percent of surface street driving that I do, I like them, but I did get stuck in about 3 inches of mud and couldn't get any traction, buddy had a MT and had no trouble getting through it, he ended up having to pull my Jeep out.

Ive run them and wheeled them, Theyre a very quiet and good riding tire and they've never given me problems on the trail. The tread pattern is actually the same as the original Bridgestone Dueler
