    Hi all, it's time for me to get new tires. I'm in between the General Grabber ATX and Wildpeak AT3W in stock P size 265/70R17. I'd love to hear your thoughts if you've owned both or which you'd prefer. This will be my commuter with off roading in SoCal approx once a month with multiple trips to Mammoth or CO during the winter.

    Cheers

    I hear both are great tires although the Falkens look more aggressive, especially on the sidewall

    I am personally disappointed with their winter performance. Definitely looking at another brand after these ones. ‘20 OR.

    I love my ATX's. Great on road, and very good in the winter. Also, I think they look better than the Falken and their dopey looking sidewall.

    The Wildpeaks used to be a good value, not so much anymore. I think they're actually now more expensive than the Generals. Oh, and the Generals are made in the USA, not overseas like the Falken.

    Appreciate all the input. I did notice Falkens used to be around 158 or so and now they're close to 200. grabbers do seem to be a better value at this point in time. A friend also mentioned Kenda Klever RTs to throw in the mix

    The RT's look like a great tire, but even in the stock 4R size they are going to be HEAVY, as they are only available in load range E in that size. I know because I was looking into them myself last year before I got my Generals.

    Speaking of weight, that's another reason I didn't go with with the Falkens, they are very heavy for a stock size tire, even in P rating.

    I’ve ran both. Can’t go wrong with either one. But I do prefer the at3w sidewall over the atx

    The AT3's are much more aggressive looking in person. This is a 285. Not sure if the 265 have a less aggressive sidewall in OE size.

    The Kenda's look very tempting although on their website, a 265/70r17 tire minimum width is 7.5" but my TRD Pro wheels are a 7". I also see they have a 33x10.5r17 available that can run a 17x7. Will that size fit on a stock suspension?

    I have the ATX's and I've been 100% satisfied. They're quiet on road and work great off road as well. When mine wear out, I'll be getting another set.

    I wouldn't worry about that. 285/70/17's will fit on a 7" rim just fine.





    .......I'm ready for it. Bring it on :crapstorm:

    I had heard that people run TRD PRO rims on 285s all the time so maybe I take the gamble? They are the Kenda Klever RTs

    Looks like he has Falkens. I guess he changed his mind about them since April.

    I really wouldn't worry about the .5 in. Like others have said, plenty of guys are running 285s on Pro Wheels with no problems at all. I think the 33 by 10.5 is an awesome size, and I was very tempted to run those on mine, but I had doubts about it fitting with stock suspension. If I ever lifted, that is high on my list of tires to go with. The other one is a 255/80/17, which is like a 33X10.0. Supposedly those do fit on stock suspension, but are only available in load range e.

    Honestly, if you're not planning on lifting it, and don't go off road all the time, I would just stick with the stock size. It'll give you less issues as far as power and mileage loss, and won't screw with your gearing. When I added my stock size Grabber ATX's, they looked visibly larger than the stock size bridgestone's. The more aggressive tread and sidewall make them appear larger.

    Snow covered roads have proven to be a challenge for these tires. Not even going uphill and the traction control light comes on all the time. Turning has to be done at minimal speeds otherwise it slides like a christmas sled. I drive a lot in 4x4H in the winter, where it behaves very nice.
    All other seasons ok. Quiet-ish on the highway, seems stable at high speeds, but I do have the shimmy in the steering wheel, which seems to be a common treat for this car. Performance in fluffy snow has been ok, they grab decent, it's the comapcted snow that i have issues with, more than any other vehicle I had.

    I don’t where your driving in snow but my truck on stock sizes falken are pretty good in NYS weather the falken are snow rated
    actually they have performed well in almost every situation
    I swap out to blizzak when the weather get to freezing conditions perfect in the heavy snow

    Yeah, I think I'm going to stick with the stock tire size and try out those Kenda's. I hope I won't have issues getting them installed

    I run the GG ATX in a e load and I love them, they are very usable in snow, shed standing water amazingly and are great offroad. Bonus, they look fantastic, oh and quieter on the freeway than the stock duelers.

    you would be correct, they are made to easily take in studs should you live somewhere where you drive on ice most of the time :) This is my second vehicle running these tires and for the price and performance, they are real hard to beat.

    I have been very happy with the ATX's as well, quiet and man do they shred through standing water.
