Re: Falken WildPeak AT 275/65r18

I've been thinking about the Falken's as well. 160 a tired at Sears right now, which is a pretty good price from what I can tell. When you put the larger tire on does that screw with the speedometer and showing the currently MPG and what not?

It does affect the speedo. 0-40 is accurate. 40-60's it's off 2,3,4 mph. If you get a bigger size I would recommend getting the same size spare.

I'm guessing Superchips doesn't have anything that can be used to update for the larger tires. I have one for my WK that I was able to use when I put 32s on it.

Does the Falken fit in the spare location without issue? I'm guessing the little storage containers would have to come out.

Yeah. I'm pretty sure super chips doesn't have anything for it. I could be wrong tho. I just deal with it lol... Yes. Take the trays out and my tire fits. It's hard to get the lid to close completely sometimes but it will close all the way. I know some people had issues with their lid not closing due to the wider size. For some reason mine fits just fine.

Re: Falken WildPeak AT 275/65r18

I was running the wild peaks on my f150 for almost 2 years. They did a great job in the snow and cleaned very well in the mud. I was very pleased, and would def consider them when I'm due for new rubber on the jeep.
