    Default Falken Hight Country A/T?

    Hello, I have a 2006 Silverado single cab I was wondering if anyone had any experience with these tires? http://www.treadsource.com/images/P/...ntry_AT-14.jpg. I like the way they look, and I just wonder how long I could expect them to last, how loud they will be, things like that. Also would I need to worry about 265/70/17 rubbing at all? I have 245/70/17 cooper discoverer h/t's on right now, but they just don't look mean enough for me. Thanks guys. This site is always so helpful.

    You should get decent wear out of them, I am not that familiar with Falken. I had 265's on my 03 and didn't have any problems.
    Ford has a better idea! Drive a GM!

    Good to know about no rubbing. I didnt really figure there would be but better safe than sorry! I'd also be interested in other A/t's if anyone has any suggestions. I'm just trying to find some aggressive ones that won't break the bank or my Mpg's. I'm really enjoying my 20 avg. Lol

    First are you driving a 2wd or 4x4, if 4x4 you can get 285s with no rubbing, I have dunlop maxx traction mud rovers and will never have another tire as long as they make these! They are awesome in snow and everything else, a little noisy on the road and are even a E load 10 ply rating and are not a harsh ride either. Right before I got these I had a set of BFG A/T KO and I hated them, I HATED them. So much that I kept them for 2 months and just sold them for what I could, considering what i paid for those turds these were a steal at 160 a tire.

    It's a 2wd sadly.. I would kill for a 4x4. Lol those dunlops look pretty mean. How many miles do you get out of them? I don't mind spending a bit more if a tire is gonna last me.

    I have similar tires.

    Falken Rocky Mountain AT/S 265-70R17.....had em on for about 10 months now and I love them, tread wear is good so far, much better traction in the snow than my old wranglers.

    Here is a video about the Rocky Mountains...

    Gonna find out how good they are in the rocks sand and mud this weekend.
