Got some 235/65/17 Falken Wildpeaks put on today and it really does make the lil truck look so much more aggressive than the stock tires, loving em so far

Nice. They look like they will get the job done in bad weather. I am looking into upgrading my stock Continentals too.

I have been happy with mine since it was new last year and throughout the winter no problems.

I'm looking at this exact tire & size but am worried about mileage drops. I have the EB awd, so not apples to apples, but can you comment on how these tires affected your mileage?

I'd like to hear both how they affect your mileage and the driving noise. I have found off-road tires tend to be much more noisy at highway speeds. I am getting the basic AWD with 4K but would be interested in a good off-road tire if people didn't hear me coming from a mile away.

Prior to the tires, mind you I do drive highway almost daily at speeds of 65-80 so I don’t get as good of MPG as some people, and I also only went 300 miles on stock. I was getting a total of 33.8 on stock 300 miles and have gotten 32.5 total on these for 400 miles. No noticeable change whatsoever in my case.

Check my reply to another person just now for MPG. As for noise, I haven’t found any difference, I also do have music on volume 15-20 consistently though so I don’t hear road noise either way. I love the tire especially in the few snows I have got already.
