Before you buy chains for the front of a 4x4, check your manual. Some of them don't have enough clearance for heavy chains and some can't use chains at all as they can tear up some very expensive stuff. Some will only allow you to run S chains which are light weight, no V bars, and not nearly as strong as the ones in the pic above.

I run narrower tires than stock. Stock on my 3/4 ton Dodge are 265-70-17. I'm running 245-75-17. They're the same height and weight rating but an inch or so narrower. That gives me lots of room for heavier chains on the front.

That’s the way to do it. Chains are a pain but no tire comes close in performance.
I went narrow for winter tires, 235/75-16, when the originals are 265/70’s I believe. Room for chains on the front if needed.

I would not get those for mud.


A better tire is not made based on the OP's requirements.

But...

There are plenty of better tires for mud than BFG All Terrains KO2’s.

I had them on my last two rigs and won’t anymore. They don’t clean out at all for mud. Ok in snow, crap in rain, good in sand.

I’ll BFG Amur Terrain over the KO’s any day for mud/sand.


It ain't my fault.

I own a 2WD truck and when I started taking the family into the woods to camp & hunt, I got some load-rated mud grips for the rear axle. The truck has an electronic limited slip that is not quite as good as mechanical, but better than no limited slip diff.

Mug grips + electronic limited slip diff + common sense on my part never left me stranded. Trade off was more road noise and poorer wet pavement performance.

Eventually replaced those with AT tires. Much better on dry & wet pavement, but not nearly as good as the mud grips in the sloppy stuff. Got into a few situations where the mud grips would have managed, but my ATs did not. Instead of pushing it, I turned around and said, "Nope, not going to make it happen this time." Maybe 4WD+AT tires could have made it.

One other thing: load rated D and E tires impact MPG, but are worth it to me to reduce busted tires when out in the woods & slop. I got D rated but would go E next time. Just so many more E load rated tires out there.

What about ffalken wildpeak at3w? They appear to have a decent tread pattern and according to other sites, are not that noisy. But WTH do i know, I'm the one asking questions. grin

I'm still trying to figure out why the Discount Tire tech did not recommend these. On paper they seem great and have not actually heard one complaint from someone that has them.

For old farm roads and some mud skip past A/T tires and go to basic mud and snow tires like the Goodyear DuraTrac. If you don't want to run them year round pick up a couple extra wheels. AND GET CHAINS.

Have you ever used them on a full sized truck? I know the newer Taco's big but not quite the same.

I just put a set of Falkens on my Tacoma TRD, 4X4

Haven't had a chance to try them out yet, but they are quiet on the road, and drive nice.

My fishing bud has two sets, one on his Jeep Wrangler, and the other on his 4X4 truck.

He likes them so well, that I bought them on his advice.

Any feedback on the Falkens for running in the snow?

I've got about 1/2 mile of steep driveway. I gain 300 feet of elevation in that 1/2 mile.

When it snows, it's a slick mess!

Hope these tires have good enough tread to climb in 1/2 to 1 foot of snow.

Thanks for any feedback!
