    18” EVOs mounted this morning with 265/65 Falken ATs and 1.5” Johnson Rods. Really happy with how it turned out :biggrin:

    I’m new to the LR4 scene but not off-roading. Been in the Toyota world for the last few years building trucks and SUVs, the majority of which have run Falken ATs or MTs.

    Great tires. No complaints with them. I like BFG ATs and MTs as well but it’s nice that the Falkens run true to size, have a slightly more aggressive AT tread design and cost less.

    My reservation about the Falkens would be the load rating. Not much more than an XL, are they?

    Correct. The 255/55r19 Michelin’s Premier LTX that came on my truck had a side wall load rating of 2403 whereas the 265/65r18 Falkens are rated at 2601. The E-Rated KO2s come in at 3305.

    So yes an E-Rated Falken would have been ideal but at a load rating of 2601 per corner I don’t think I’ll have a problem. I have these set at 41psi all around right now and get very little sidewall bulge. I may end up playing with the air pressures more but for now they seem to be doing well.

    I have the 265/65r18 Falken AT3W on my 2006 RRFF and they work great overall.
