I might go wider when I need to replace, but that decision is a long ways away. The narrow tires are a lot less expensive. Prob would have put the Falkens on if I didn't put on so many highway miles, the Hankooks are a bit quieter on the highway.

16s or 17 inch wheels. I've never seen a 235/85r17...

It's on stock 16" wheels, should have made that clear. Was responding to OP's thought of narrow tires.

I swear by them and will replace this year not because of tread wear but the sidewalls are getting a bit worn...I'm sure I could get 90-100K out of this set

Great on the highway which is 80-90% of our driving...very good aired down on dirt and great in snow.

Would you switch to the new tire Michelin Agilisฎ CrossClimate?

Falken Wildpeak AT3W or Hankook Dynapro ATM. Run them in whatever size you like. I run the Wildpeaks in 285/70R17 currently. I buy whichever I can get a better deal on typically.



Tires have ~ 25K miles in this photo, are probably 40% worn by my standards (I replace before I am on the wear bars as I frequent the Sierra, UT and CO and am loath do deal with shabby tires in the snow.

Even wear, quiet as the day they went on.

Exceptional off road, side lugs are stout and provide meaningful traction when aired down. Ive run these on numerous vehicles and currently also run a plus size on my wife's VW Atlas which has become a decent trail vehicle with the addition (nevermind the body and undercarriage damage ;)





Glamour shot!

Hi all,

After going with the k02’s in 245/75/17 and doing 400miles, I ordered the Falken wildpeak at3w stuck with stock size 245/70/17 and they looks great not as filling.
Will be doing freeway test soon to check for noise and balance issues and hopefully reset tpms alarm.
Any thoughts on psi front as back unloaded no trailer.

I think you will really like the Falkens. They are very quiet and super smooth on my van.
Way better than the summer tires that came from the factory. Got them more for traction but was very surprised at how much the ride improved over the stock tires.It is actually amazing how much better the ride is. Mine are the Wildpeak 17", AT3W LT265-70-R17's.
