    Falken Wildpeak AT3W Long Term?

    These tires do not disappoint. I can drive these in 2 wheel drive through snow conditions where I needed 4x4 with my duratracs.

    Falken Wildpeak AT3W Long Term?

    I put the P-Rated Falken Wildpeaks on in stock size. 275/55-20. Amazing on ice and snow so far this winter. Quiet on the road. Not much off roading yet.

    Falken Wildpeak AT3W Long Term?

    Supposedly, the P-rated falkens have more silica content than the LT’s so they grip better on ice and snow. The XL P-Rated tire has more than enough load capacity for me. I am in the market for some factory 18’s though.

    Falken Wildpeak AT3W Long Term?

    Unnecessary addition of weight and possibly harsh ride. I’m already not jazzed about the 20’s so maintaining an acceptable ride is important. For example: p-rated XL 275/55-20 Falken Wildpeak AT3W 117T max load is 154 pounds more per tire than General Grabber LT275/55-20. The Falken weighs 8...

    Falken Wildpeak AT3W Long Term?

    2017 GMC Sierra 4x4 1500. Im getting ready to swap off my Duratracs with 27 k miles. They are noisy as heck and rotations are not quieting them down anymore. They are 70% worn and have been great in everything but icy roads this last winter. How are the Falkens holding up? Road noise...

    How far can you get with a 2WD and a shovel?

    A good seat of all-terrain tires will affect your mpg's more than having 4wd/awd.

    Subaru Outback Tires, Going Flat...Thoughts

    Fresh Gravel is essentially "off road." You need an "off road" oriented tire for the car. I used the old 2nd gen Yoko Ats on my Jeep and they did not wear well. No idea on the 3rd gen. I've seen Hankook Dynapro ATM's and General Grabber AT2's on newer outbacks recently. Ive had great luck with...

    The perfect tire.

    Goodyear Duratrac. Loving mine so far, better in loose /packed snow than my grabber AT2's were. Quieter on road also.

    How are AT3's in the snow?

    Year round Gunnison, CO resident here: General Grabber AT2... Big fan. Cheap and long wearing. Works in all 4 seasons. Mountain snowflake rated and proven in snow. Not rotation sensitive. Zero problems on my jeep or my silverado.

    Falken AT3W's on sale

    They look good but are they really a "winter" tire? No serious siping or other "winter" features.

    Truck Topper V. Bed Cover??

    Ive owned 4 real trucks in my life. 3 came with matching toppers when I bought them. I really like the idea of the dry and more secure storage of the topper. I had a 98 S10 ZR2 with a matching fiberglass topper. It was 6 foot so we could sleep in it and carry camping gear. When we bought our...

    WK 4 wheel drive systems question.

    Look for a V8 WK with 4lo. That system is called quadra trac 2. 4 low and full time 4hi. I traveled many thousands of trouble free miles off road in mine. Identified by a 4lo lever by the shifter and a 10 bolt rear axle cover. There is another system called quadra drive 2. That one has 4lo...

    My 2016 frontier build and adventure thread!

    I have had such great luck with the Grabber AT2. No flats, no problems at all. They also NEVER needed air. I also did not follow any kind of disciplined rotation schedule with the AT2's on the jeep. They started to sing a bit near the end but they had thousands of miles off road on them. I can...
