Very curious why everyone likes the falken wildpeak at3
They look really street for anything but wet grass in comparison to The toyo rt or Cooper sst
I guess like you said gravel, ice , but mud ?

When I got stuck in Montana the farmer that pulled me out said my 50% cooper discoverers were to blame for getting stuck in the snow and ice. He recommended Wild peaks and I've been a fan, just wish they made a more aggressive R/T. Might pull the trigger on the A/T3 though and hope they got enough tread for mud.

These tire threads are just as good as broadhead threads.

Sorry you had bad luck OP. I got 68,000k, 71,000k, and now on my 3rd set on a F250 diesel.

I believe cooper has the best rubber compound so far. I work 50 yards from where they mix the rubber and mill it out. **** Cepek, Mickey Thompson, Hercules, dean and master craft are also made by cooper and seem to be good and would be worth looking into.

I really liked my coopers on my dodge but like I said once they got 50% tread I was sliding everywhere in Montana.

Everyone I know has good luck out of them. Might try the Toyo Open Country CT, itís cut and chip compounded and will well on rough roads

Ive been running Nitto Ridge Grapplers and have no complaints with over 22k (knock on wood) if they hold up well I may stay with them but will be considering the coopers also.

And just so everybody knows, Toyo owns and manufactures Nitto.

I loved mine until about then and the gravel roads started eating the rubber off in chunks. I'll try to post a pic.
