Good choice. Only down fall is there not good in the mud. Nice strong sidewall which is extremely rare for a AT tire. To those that recomended the duratrac I have yet to see them in a 32x11.5/15 anywhere and that is what he was looking for..

Weird about the BFG A/T being on backorder, I just picked up a brand new set at discount 2 weeks ago and they had a whole bunch sitting right there. Anyway, I don't have much experience in other tires, but I can tell you that my dad's rubi is sitting on 32" BFG A/T's and he has close to 60k miles on them and they look great. They're a little noisy now from being worn, but still ride fine with no vibrations. I have no complaints about mine either.

Originally I was going to go with the tried and true BFG's. According to the local Discount Tire they had four 32's in stock. But when my wife saw the price, she gave me the look, said "No" and walked away. So I ended up with the Falkans.

i agree with the falken brand tire. i love them and have ran them on all kinds of vehicles from my Auto-x setup mazda 3, to the blazer i had that went through snow so deep it left frame trails in the snow...


I personally for an A/T tire would go with the falken hi country A/T's they are not as easy to get a hold of but ride awesome and quite for the time i had them and are aggressive enough to take care of some decent mud as well.....

after searching unfortunately the biggest size you can get them in is 31 10's so i guess this info is useless here, but i would highly recommend them to anyone wanting that size or smaller...

with the 32's i would take the wild peak A/T's!!!
