I just bought a set of Falkens for my 3/4 ton. Had a set of falkens 6 years ago on another truck and really liked them. When I bought my duramax, the price of falkens had shot up quite a bit. So I went with the Nitto ridge grapplers and then the next set was the Cooper AT3’s. The Nittos were horrible in wet conditions and wore out quite fast. Could never get the coopers to balance right. Had those things on a tire machine trying to get them right. Finally gave up on them. Know two other guys that had bad luck with the coopers and balancing issues.
KO2’s are a really good tire in wet conditions, snow, mud and just cruising daily on the black top

I put the Wildpeak AT3W on my wife's Bronco Sport, they ride smooth and quiet and are not much heavier than the stock tires. I have the KO2's on my truck and they're great tires as well. The Falken just weren't quite as aggressive, heavy, or loud so did what she wanted a little better.

They test well, too... https://m.tirerack.com/tires/tests/testDisplay.jsp?ttid=293

Those are great tires! They look good too. They are really grippy! I climb trees all the time with them in my Tacoma😂😁😂‼️

I just about bought some Falkens a few years back until I found an online ratings page where people rate their tires. Falken's were dead last so that scared me off.

I have owned 2 sets of Generals. Never again.

I have owned 2 sets of KO2s. This will be my next set.

I have Goodyear Wrangler Territorys now as they came with the truck. They are okay. Maybe even a shade better than okay. But not KO2s. Not even close.

As a natural resource manager, I drive about 16K miles per year on my work truck driving about 50/50 between pavement and dirt. I started off with a set of Mastercraft CXT and they performed well. I really liked my last set of General Grabber AXT's. I changed them out at 45K miles and they performed very well. This go around, I'm trying the Falken Wildpeak AT3's. I only have a couple thousand miles so far but they seem good. One thing I noticed right away is about 1.5 mph difference worse in gas mileage from the General Grabber AXT. That was mildly surprising.

I keep buying duratracs. Have never let me down, and have never even gotten a flat or in any way stuck on multiple cross country trips to Idaho, CO and WY. Hundreds of miles of backcountry FS and BLM roads, including trails I had no business trying. no problems at all. As said, they do get a little slick on wet pavement, and once about 50% worn, hum on the highway. Rotate em every 5000 or so to avoid any uneven wear.

I’ve got roughly 65,000 miles on a set of KO2s on my 4Runner. I just got back from a western hunting trip. I drove from Kansas City to Memphis in the rain with no wet weather handling issues. I’ve kicked around the idea of get alittle bit lighter weight tire, but I’m finding it hard to deviate from the KO2s that I’ve had such great luck with throughout the decades.

I was told the tires on the loader are $8000 a PIECE.🫣🥺

Haven’t bothered confirming that though.

Anyone with a Massey Ferguson 1526 or 1825 know what tires would cost for one of those?
