I saw falken wildpeak at3w for $754 mounted and balanced. At that price I have to ask... Anybody out there using these? How are they with daily driving and towing? Reviews are few and don't address towing. The only online reviews I can find are articles and they are fairly positive but don't address what I really need to know. Thanks!


The Michelins are well known. You have to stop as ask yourself if 300 dollars is worth your life. Not saying they are bad tires but Michelins are the best. Michelins for me.

Michelin. Great tire and I sleep well at night. Worth the few extra dollars.

I say Michelin. Saving 300 clams is not worth it IMHO.

I just put on a set of Yokohama YK-HTX on my GMC 2500 for around $900. They look good for rain / snow and mud and still quiet going down the road. Just a step down from Michelin and saves $200. You could get a set for $600/$700 but that would a set for highway use in the south.

Not apples to apples but I can tell you we used to run exclusively Michelin tires on our semis (National Account) and then moved to a Yokohama National Account after some testing. We're spending $300 less per tire but getting the same mileage out of them.

Like I said, not apples to apples but don't discount a tire because it's not the Michelin.

I had michelins on my suburban and really liked them until someone flattened all four. I replaced them with the wildpeaks and was very pleased with them all year long. Quite on the highway and great in all weather, just ran them a little softer when not towing.

Thank you everyone for your input. As I further study these I have learned the load index is a little lower than I need on the wildpeak. They are rated to 3100 lbs, I have a rear gawr of 7050 lbs and weigh 6000 lbs on the rear axle hooked up. That is a little tight for comfort. The Michelin and the Cooper discoverer are both rated to 3500 lbs so they are now my top 2 choices. They are really close in price to each other as well.

Michelin doesnt offer the tire size I needed for my TV, so I ended up with the Firestone Transforce HT's and have been very pleased with them.
