Mmm...I spoke with Faulken tire about 3 weeks ago regarding their tires but what they said completely escapes me now.

great tire just heavy. they are the same as the wildpeak just with discount tire only name on them. i ran them on a one ton truck and would be running them on my jeep except they were 12lbs each heavier than the cooper ATP (also discount tire) that i have on there now. look at the 285 size range it will look better under the jeep

I have already given my thoughts on them many times. I didn't like mine at all and ended up selling them at 5,000 miles to someone else. Heavy, hard to balance, horrible on the trail, pick up rocks and throw them all over your paint, rubber is soft and smells like cow manure (no joke), just really crappy foreign tires.. Sumitomo discontinued their own AT and I'll bet the Falken they make will be going away one day too.

That's it! I remember now being in disbelief when the rep told me how much that tire weighed in a 35.

I have 285/75/16. 33x11ish. Done 100 MPH smooth as butter. Never stuck due to traction, but they stunk for a couple months. Have 20,000 miles and not much wear, expect over 50k if I keep them even with rock crawling. They do weigh as much as the 35x12.5 duratracs I'm about to switch to though...

Wish I didn't delete the picture showing the 90mph reading before I flashpaq'd the speedo to compensate going from 29's to 33's.

Maybe its not set up right or you went too far to the aggressive offroad mods.

I'm replacing a tie rod end later this week because it rattles on washboard roads.

My auto has no issue getting up to speed with 3.73's. Of course that appeared after I used my flashpaq the first time. Stock tune is quite lethargic on the bottom end.

That sucks. I mean I can't even describe how well the tune works. I've had a couple people compliment the.... "cough" power
That is with 35's too

I run em mostly bought them for price. No problems and I like them. After the Aev procal cant really tell the differnce with the weight. Only downside is they simple just dont look as "cool" they dont have an aggresivie look.
