    Tire size:285/75/16
    Tire make: mud claw, Michelin
    Wheel: OE16"
    Backspacing: 5.5
    Spacer required: none
    Cutting: none
    Other mods: none
    Lift on truck: Rough Country 2.5 lift., which involves spacers on front strut towers and for the rear longer shackles. Great all around height rides smoother. Front suspension a little tight. Be sure to get shocks on the rear for this lift for stock shock will be maxxed. If on a budget, Rancho has a decent set.

    Hello TerryD , Noticed that your the only one here that says you put an LT type tire on . While reserching the wildpeak AT3W I noticed that the LT tires weighed more with a thicker sidewall and 5/32's deeper tread.I wanted to ask how is the road ride since mine's a DD and how the LT is offroad ?? I'm sticking with 265/75/16 size wise. To LT or not to LT would be the question !! Thanx Eddie""

    I don't think it's bad but my reference is a 3/4ton GMC running basically the same tires.

    I run 32-35psi in them normally on the X and we regularly take family trips in the X including about 8hr total worth of driving to Savannah earlier this year. I have pretty stiff suspension since I have to deal with 5 people's worth of gear for most trips with 3 kids.

    Offroad they've been great. I regularly run 15psi in them and have been as low as 13psi in some tough spots and haven't unseated a bead yet. There are some light cuts in the sidewalls but no leaks or punctures in 20k miles of mixed use.

    Tire Size 265/75/16 Tire Make-Model Falken Wildpeak AT3W Wheel OE 16" Back spacing ??? Factory Spacers Req'd None Cutting Req'd None Other Mod's None Lift None Ordered these Sat from a local service center I use [ McFadden's ] Came in Mon had them mounted/balanced today, also had new TPS installed and alignment and last but not least oil change while there. Felt more planted then the 265/70/16 uniroyal laredos that came with it when purchased. Liking so far , nice semi-agressive look, fill's the wheel well a little more [ 1.2 inch's taller ] Will update after a couple month's driving :)

    Tire Size: 265/75/16
    Tire Make/Model: Falken Wildpeak AT3W/ Michelin snows (boring)
    Wheel: OE 16" PRO4X Wheel
    Backspacking: 5.5" (if this is factory backspace it)
    Spacers Req'd: No.
    Cutting Req'd: No.
    Other Mods Req'd: No.
    Lift on Truck: None it’s bone stock that’s why it’s stock size tires
    Notes: FYI have had a hell of a time getting these (Falkens) balanced. They have been rebalanced like 4 times, and I am at a tolerable shake at a bit above hiway speed (120kph). And it not something else because the snow tires on Steelies are fine. I guess that means there could be a wheel issue. I guess I need a lift bigger tire and new wheels.

    I read about people having balancing issue's but the one's who didn't really liked them so I pulled the trigger anyway and ordered on sat, installed yesterday. the young man who balanced them said 3 went with a small amount of weight and 1 took two med sized weight. Right now it just start's getting a very small amount of vibration at around 87. Sorry to hear that your's aren't working out for you.

    I'll add a few to the mix from what I've ran

    Tire Size: 265/75/16
    Tire Make/Model: Firestone Destination A/T
    Wheel: OE 16" S Wheel (2007)
    Backspacking: ~5.25" (16x7 +30mm offset)
    Spacers Req'd: No.
    Cutting Req'd: No.
    Other Mods Req'd: No.
    Lift on Truck: 1" Lift Radflo's w/ stock UCAs, OME lt/med leaf springs
    Notes: Pretty good all terrains.


    Tire Size: 285/75/16
    Tire Make/Model: Nitto Terra Grappler
    Wheel: MB TKO
    Backspacking: ~5.25" (16x8.5 +12 offset)
    Spacers Req'd: No.
    Cutting Req'd: No.
    Other Mods Req'd: Melt Mod
    Lift on Truck: 1" Lift Radflo's w/ stock UCAs, OME lt/med leaf springs eventually bumped up to 2.5" suspension lift, spc's etc etc.
    Notes: My favorite all terrain tire to date. Sliced sidewalls easy on trails but mostly due to pinch flat's. I believe the wide wheels were the biggest culprit and perhaps some inexperience. Very little weight required to balance. I believe 2oz was the worst one IIRC.


    Tire Size: 315/75/16
    Tire Make/Model: Nitto Trail grappler
    Wheel: OE 16" S Wheel (2012)
    Backspacking: ~5.25" (16x7 +30mm offset)
    Spacers Req'd: No.
    Cutting Req'd: yes and no. LCA was rotated all the way forward. Cleared on road but rubbed offroad. Trimmed back of front wheel wells.
    Other Mods Req'd: 2" BL required or major fender trimming including 2" at the top
    Lift on Truck: 3ish" Titan swap + 2" BL
    Notes: Excellent tires. Been very impressed with on road handling, quiet, good in snow even though they are an MT. Excellent traction offroad and very durable. Little weight required to balance (worst of 6 tires required 4 oz). My only knock on them is weight but I've gotten over that. Highly recommend. It will be hard to get me to run a different tire offroad as long as these are made.


    Oh, and the OE Hankook Dynapro ATM's that came on my 2015 have been some of the worst tires i've ever owned. At first they were good, very good snow traction. I'd say they were good for 15-20 k miles. After that they get LOUD. Louder than most MT's. After that they start to wear very strange. Alignment is correct, always maintained proper air pressure, just a crappy wearing tire. Never again.

    Tire Make/Model: Cooper STT Pro
    Wheel: OE 17" 04-06 Titan Wheel
    Backspacking: 5.5"
    Spacers Req'd: Yes. 1.5" conversion spacers. 6x4.5 to 6x5.5.

    Other Mods Req'd: So much melt mod. Probably needs more melt mod.
    Lift on Truck: 2" Lift Radflo's w/ stock UCAs, PRG Shackles, 2" Body Lift
    Notes: Fantastic tires. Will buy another set.
