Looks like the Rubitrek tread is a closer together than the AT3W. My guess is that the Rubitek more suited for dryer climates.

Updated Review:

Falcon's are still holding up, wear seems minimal to none for about 4000 miles. Some travel through slick clay/mud and they did ok - much better than stock Hankooks but a little slipping here and there, overall happy so far. Dry off road they are really good and very rarely, if at all, loose traction on curves/turns. On road handling (curves, turns, etc. and I haven't pushed the truck) they seem comparable to the Hankooks (stock).

Gas mileage was impacted (not sure why i didn't see it for initial review) by about 15%.

Acceleration seems slightly impacted and does require more throttle for hills while cruising.

Braking does require a little more pedal effort but for emergency stops the Falken's seem to have better traction and slightly shorter distance (they are 285/55/20 so a little bigger contact patch).

No discernible road noise or vibrations.

Overall, I am very satisfied with the Falken's and would definitely buy them again.

Hope this helps.

I have had these for almost 10k miles now. They are wearing even and have had them in the mud, snow, rain and some soft dirt of a freshly plowed field. They are real good in the snow and the rain. They are not as good as my old Goodyear Duratracs in the mud but are much more quiet than the duratracs. For an all around tire you cant beat the price on these.

Also reporting in at 12K+ miles and still maintaining 91% tread. Rotate these religiously every 5,000 miles and maintain proper air pressure.

EPag,,,,Running max 50 PSI seems excessive,,any reason for it??

The e load has pretty stout sidewalks. Running lower pressure they end up acting like a spring and give the truck a pretty wicked shimmy when hitting a bump while going anywhere but straight. 50 is a good number to stiffen them up and prevent this.

To answer an earlier question I did have some rub with no level but it was isolated to fender plastic at fifty percent steering lock and full bump. Overall not a big deal but I ended up leveling the truck anyway.

still happy with the wildpeaks. I run them on two vehicles at the moment. My truck and my 4x4 sprinter. Even in the 8k lb sprinter they are holding up great.
