Hankook Dynapro ATm RF10 VS Falken WildPeak A-T

I'm looking to replace my Pro Comp AT 35x12.50x17's with a 315/70/17 tire. I'm looking at either the Hankook RF10 or Falken Wild Peak. Wondering if anyone has run either tire. Reviews for both sound like they handle well in rain/snow and off the trail. Also curious how they look after setup. Any input will be appreciated.

I ran both of these tires on my 2011 JKU.

Falken = heavy as h###, Hankook = lightweight to average

Falken = miserable wet traction, Hankook = like driving Velcro tires on a cotton highway

Falken = don't even look at wet grass or mud or you'll be stuck before you pull onto it, Hankook = respectable for an AT tire. Not a mud tire, but holds it's own.

Falken = silent on the road, Hankook = noisy

Falken = squirmy tread which tracked all over the lane. Required two hands on the wheel at times even when dry, Hankook = no such issues

Falken = thickest sidewalls I've ever seen, Hankook = average sidewall strength

Falken = picks up rocks like they're magnetic, then throws them all over your paint, rockers, and mirrors Hankook = didn't have that problem


I will point out that Falken has come out with an AT2 tire now which supposedly has improved the tread compound to solve some of these issues.

Have ATM on my 3/4 ton truck.
No slipage of any kind and I for one think they are very quite. They wear well on my heavy a$$ truck, so I asume they would wear great on a Jeep.
