The Hancook Dynapro ATM RF10 is a great tire and great price for what you get. We sell a ton of those.

Thanks, I'm in a WJ though, sorry for the confusion. The guys at discount tell me the same thing about the ATMs but its also a 2 year old tire and has had a chance to prove itself. I believe they are M+S rated are they not? Do you know if the Wild Peaks (aka Rocky Mountains) are M+S rated? I can't seem to find that info on them anywhere.

Re: Terra Grapplers VS Wild Peaks

Just an update...

I was starting to lean heavily towards the Hankooks only because of all the info on them but when I called Discount they had just sold out so my decision was made for me. Looks like I will be one of the few running the Falken Wild Peaks and I'll be sure to post up some feedback after putting some miles on them.

On a side note, I did a quick search, it appears Falken has a motivator to help sway the decision making process and I've attached that here for your reference....



Can't wait to get these tires so I can reference this pic and lube up those beads before I get ready for mounting. lol

Re: Terra Grapplers VS Wild Peaks

The Hancooks have very well proven them selves They are also M+S rated. The reviews online are great. I dont know anything about wild peaks sorry.

I do know we take off alot of falken tires and customers complain they wear out fast. I would keep searching for the Hancooks, Ebay sells them new as well in sets of 4. Dont give up on a good thing just beacause they dont have them right at the moment.

Re: Terra Grapplers VS Wild Peaks

i have NEVER heard a GOOD thing about FALKEN. bad thing is mainly about the wear.

I have also read many BAD things about the Terra Grapplers wearing rather qwuickly as well.

Re: Terra Grapplers VS Wild Peaks

The Terra Grappler and Open Country AT are great tires but both are only listed as a 30k mile tire and most people with heavier vehicles are only getting about 20k out of them.

Whenever i buy tires i search by many factors. Reviews, personal experience, ratings, If its Mountain Snow Flake rated for severe snow traction, and mileage warranty.

For ex, the Goodyear Wrangler Silent armor, General Grabber AT2 are both aggressive AT tires both M+S rated, Both Mountain Snow flake rated, and both have 60k mile warranties.

You can expect about 40k out of them with an AWD vehicle, and if you think they wore too fast and the tire shop kept your logs of mileage, rotations etc then you can get a pro rated cost on a new set if they dont make it to 60k.

ive also hear alot of people say they these tires have made it to almost 100k when well maintained.

Another good one is the BFG AT KO, its expensive, almost the same tread as the general and its legendary. Also M+S rated, Snow flake rated and though they dont have a mileage warranty they are known for 60k to 100k miles if taken care of.

i pretty much live and breath tires so if you have questions about name brand tires i will help as best i can.

From my experience working at a tire shop, spend the money and buy good well known name brand tires, BFG, Michelin, Hancook, Cooper etc. Everyone who buys the cheap tires always come back complaining about them.

Re: Terra Grapplers VS Wild Peaks

Well thanks all. I pulled the trigger on the Falkens because of availability. I ran falken FK452's on a previous car I used to have. They replaced a set of Toyo T1's that cost almost twice as much and I had no problem with my falkens. In fact, i was hard pressed to notice any major differences between the Toyos and the Falkens other than price so I thought it was worth another shot at the Falkens.

Re: Terra Grapplers VS Wild Peaks

UPDATE:

Installed the Wild Peaks last night, they look great and drive smooth! I havent put hardly any miles on them yet but much better ride so far then the crappy wranglers that came with the Jeep and the slightly more aggressive tire size (245/65/17) fills the wheel wells nicely and looks like a more beefy tire. So far I'm liking them. Real test will be the weekend.....if we get any rain I try them in the mud.

Prior to that I'll have to replace the rear sway bar end link bolts on the divers side. I snapped them last night when I was replacing the links. LOL To be expected I guess when the Jeep turns 200,000KMs
