Re: Falken Rocky Mountain ATS

I have them.. Have about 3k miles on them and so far so good. Did some light off-roading in some light mud with hills and small ditches and they worked great. No snow yet, so I can't comment on that part. In the rain, I haven't had any issues yet. Even at highway speeds. I think they look great! Here's a few pics so you can get an idea.

Re: Falken Rocky Mountain ATS

They look great thanks. I'm waffling between these and the Nitto terra grapplers. Nice WK2 also

Re: Falken Rocky Mountain ATS

Thanks! I had a hard time trying to find negative reviews on this tire, and for the price, I felt as if I couldn't go wrong.

Re: Falken Rocky Mountain ATS

Very nice pics JDrew! Thanks for posting those, and your review. AT tires make the Jeep look so much better. Did you take a noticable dip in MPG? That's my worry -- as I know the Lattitudes have really LRR. The OE Michelins are decent tires for highway use, but they look like they belong on a CRV.

Re: Falken Rocky Mountain ATS

I have had them for about the last 15-20k on my WJ and i love them.. i have tried to get stuck and haven't yet. they have been great in the mud, snow, and street. This year im gona try them on the beach. I upgraded to the 265/75 16's and i definitely notices a change in the gearing and fuel eco... i get better highway once the tires are up to speed, but worse around town it seems. there is a lot more drag with the fatter tires.

Re: Falken Rocky Mountain ATS

Those look identical to the Falken Wild Peak A/T's I just had installed in my Jeep. These things are a fantastic tire for the investment. Great wet performance. Good in the snow. Mine are 31" and have a good sidewall and plenty of tread. Quiet highway performance. Good call, says I.

Re: Falken Rocky Mountain ATS

I am debating between these and the Firestone Destination AT in a 275/55/20. I put over 120k miles on 2 previous sets of the Firestones, but honestly I don't think I'd trust Firestone w/ the WK2. IMHO, Discount Tire is one of the quickest and most professional tire places, which is why I am leaning towards these Falkens. Thanks for all the feedback so far!

They are the exact same tire. I asked about that and they were given different names for marketing. The Rocky Mountain's are only sold at Discount Tire while the Falken Wild Peak's are sold at other stores as well as Discount Tire.

I put these on 2 days after I got my GC, so I really can't answer part of your question. On the highway, I'm getting between 21-24 depending on the temp, my speed (normally 70mph or so) and winds. In the city, I get about 14-16 depending on how I drive.

What's the issue with the Firestones? That's what I was about to get locally...

Nothing wrong with the tires, I just don't trust the techs at the local store.
