Finally got the new tires for "BRUTUS."
I went with the FALKEN ROCKY MOUNTAIN A/T's.
I gotta say that they are sweeter in person!! Man...they are awesome looking tires for sure!! The aggressive stance, and the aggressive tread design are some head turning features!! I've had them for only 2 days, and I have already had about 10 people wanting to know what kind of tires they are, and who makes them!! I'm glad I went with the FALKENS!!
Definitely not the most expensive tire out on the market, but $$
isn't always what it's all about. If anyone is looking for a "Bang For Your Buck"
tire, then do yourself a favor, and check them out. I was able to get mine for $130.00
each, and they listed for $140.00
. Installed...Balanced etc...and out the doors for around $650.00!! Falken Tires
are also offering a $50.00
rebate on the Rocky Mountain A/T's
until Feb. 28th, which helps out on the total cost. I did however purchase the Certificates for Repair, Refund, or Replacement
extra per tire, which is something that you should consider, because it's a very good way to protect your purchase!! Here's how it works...
In the event one or more of your tires with certificates fail due to defect, or incurs road hazard damage that cannot be repaired, Discount Tire/America's Tire will replace it at no additional charge. Regardless of the number of miles you put on the tires, you will be covered for the life of the original tread down to 3/32's remaining.
I know that a lot of people are faithful to a certain brand of tires, and I understand that, but if you are open to other options, and maybe cost is another consideration then check the FALKEN's
out. You will also be getting a quality tire as well. I haven't really had the chance to do any Trail Blazing
yet, but I do know this...they are extremely quiet A/T tires... considering how aggressive the tread is. Highway riding was a "DREAM."
The handling is outstanding!! The tires just hug the road, and it was pretty hard to break them loose. I'm just tossing this information out there for others to see, and consider!! If you are still unsure...then check out the reviews for yourself. Go to some of the Off-Road/Four Wheeler
web sites, and read their reviews. There have been some negative reviews out there, but a lot of them are from people putting them on larger, full/over sized trucks. The tires are for Light Trucks, or smaller SUV's. I will try to get some pics. of the tires up soon!! Happy Tire Hunting, and here is a couple links to the Falken Rocky Mountain Tire Video
