time for new rubber so I'm about to install that 2" RR lift and ditch the 245/65r17's. I think I'm going with 255/70r17 in their place with the lift. I'd really like 265/70 but I don't want to do spacers and anything extra.

I'm down to giving Falken a try. Just wanted some feedback from you guys and see what experiences you've had with them. I think I'm down to choosing between the Wild Peak and the Rocky Mountain. The Wild Peak's are $158 ea and the Rocky Mountain's are $153 ea. There is at least a $30 prepaid visa card with purchase of a set thru DTD & free shipping. I don't see much difference between the Wild Peak and the Rocky Mountain so I'd love some opinions.

Rocky Mountain by Far!

I just recently purchased mine in October. As soon as I slapped them on I went for a long road trip from LHC, AZ to Estes Park, CO. They ride beautifully with relatively no road noise and a supper smooth ride. I took the Jeep off road into some pretty awesome rock obstacles and they performed great, especially considering the conditions. It had snowed the day before and started to lightly flurry while I was running the trail. Snow was on the ground and it was slicker than snot in areas. The Commander performed nicely with the Rocky Mountain treads. They look great and perform very well in all conditions. Great A/T.

You won't go wrong with either one. They are very, very similar and besides the writing on the sidewall, you will not notice a difference between them.

I've got a set on my Wrangler and have taken them through quite a bit of offroad terrain. I've put about 9K on my personal set so far and they are still in excellent condition despite the abuse I have put them through. I've also wheeled these tires on two other rigs in 7 different states in everything from the dunes to high rocky mountain terrain, snow, dirt, mud, boulders and plenty of pavement and desert. This tire has not let me down in any shape or form.

Here's a review I wrote on the Wild Peak after running them during a 1000 mile offroad trip in Wyoming, Montana and Idaho: http://project-jk.com/jeep-jk-new/falken-wild-peak-at-they-get-you-goingby-discount-tires-direct

I am running 245/65/17 Falken Wildpeak A/T had them on since 10 Dec 2011. I love them so far I will be getting more when these need replaced. The only thing someone else might not like about them is they are pretty loud, but I could careless.

I've had mine on my wrangler for over 9K so far and I don't notice any noise with the top on and only a little with it off. For an AT these are one of the quietest I've owned.
