I'm looking to get two sets of one of these tires in a 255/70/17 a set for my 02 Jeep WJ and another set for the wifes 05 GMC Envoy. Any info on these tires would be great. I have searched and read a bunch of reviews but I still can't decide on which tire to buy. Im looking for any pros & cons and pictures if u have any.

Thanks...

I can provide a little input on the Falkens. First off, Falken makes the Wild Peak and the exact same tire for Discount Tire Company to carry in their stores under the name of Rocky Mountains. From the research I have done, eveerything about the 2 tires is identical. So, if you have Discount Tire in your area, this may give you another option.

I have a stock Wrangler that I use to just run around in with no off roading, but I do like and wanted the look of slightly agressive tire. Since it is not my primary vehicle, I am conscience as to how much $$ I spend on it. I found a set of, 80% new, Falken Rocky Mountains on CraigsList for a good deal. It seems the sellers recently got a used 4-Runner for the wife and she did not like to tires because "they made the SUV look too much truck-like".

Oh well, their lose, my gain. From what I know, the tires had about 8-10k miles on them and I have put another 3-4k miles. The tires were and are worn very even, are very quiet, and this is with no top/doors. Overall, I am very pleased evn if I had not got them at a good deal.

This picture is when I first got them.

What type of on-road driving vs. off-road % will each vehicle see? What type of terrain will each traverse? Any other info about driving habits may bring something to light as well.

Deciding upon a tire purchase can be mind bogglin'

Addition to my above post, my size is 31-10.5-15.

Thanks for yalls info. Neither one of the vehicle will be offroad really maybe the jeep every now but nothing serious I have my XJ for that. I really like the look of the Toyo's and Falken's better then the Hankook's but iv read a lot of good stuff bout them.

Toyo AT2 on my wifes 2011 Tundra DC , and 30x9.5 on my 95 YJ , work great in the snow , Tundra plowed through some 12" snow with no problems , a little tire spin , but pushed through nice and strait , Jeep did good as well , I drove it through some lighter snow , about 6"-8" and the Tundra plowed through over a foot of snow with no problems

Of tires mentioned in OP and post 2, I think Hankook ATM would be best.

It's exceptionally round, well balanced, and performs well. It also has more sipes for better ice traction.

I went by Discount tire today and took a good look at the Falken wild peak at's and I really like them. They quoted me for $1400 for 2 set of 255/70r17 mounted, balanced & with the protection plan.
