For those of you guys that have the new Falken wildpeak Ats. How do you like them so far. How are they offroad? and all around. Like I said just curious looking at possibly getting a set let me no if I should look at another tire for my 2wd DD.

I haven't taken mine off road but in the 3 or so weeks that I have mine I couldn't be happier. I do a good mix of city and highway driving and they've done great so far. We've had some rain here recently, and they did really well with that too. I had them shipped to my grandparents' house and as soon as my grandpa saw them he bought a set for his F-350. He said they've done really well off road on his truck. I would highly recommend them for sure.

No problem. I don't know if you've seen them in person or not, but the pics that I have on here of them don't do them justice at all. The tread is pretty deep and aggressive looking but they have very little road noise. I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to take them off road anytime soon with school starting back up and everything but I'll let you know when I do. The only other guy on here that I know of with the WildPeaks is KLC. He may have taken his truck off road since he put them on.

I agree with what Justin said. I love mine too. I have taken them off-road and they do very well. I haven't been in a situation yet that I wish I had my MTZ's back. I like AT's for the overall practicality on a daily driver. I had Mickey Thompson MTZ's and although they were a very nice tire they just weren't practical for me. I do much more city and even highway driving then I do off-roading. I definitely recommend them.

By the way, I am going to take some pics today so I'll post them up here this afternoon or evening.

I've had BFG AT's before too and I like these better. I don't have any pics yet, but I will get some today.
