Anyone use Falken Rocky Mountain ats?

Looking for new set of tires for the truck. I do a lot of towing, 10,000 lb fifth wheel and other trailers, I want a tire to handle good and last. Anyone use the Falken for towing and daily driving? Or Yokohams AT?
Thanks, Brian

im running the falken wildpeak at (same as rocky mountain which is a discount tire exclusive name for the tire) and so far they run great. alot smoother and more stable than my old goodyear at/s tires. only had them a few weeks though

I am also interested in this tire because discount tire sells the size I want (305/55/20) for $250 a tire. You cant beat that price but my only concern is what kind of mileage I'm gonna get with them.

theyre relatively new from what ive seen, but went with them (305/55/20) due to the price. about 100 less per tire then the nitto terra grappler which is a 40K tire

I purchased a set about 2 months ago. After 1,500 miles, I love these tires. They have little to no road noise and are very smooth. I haven't had a chance to tow anything big with them, but the things I have towed they performed well. I do a lot of highway driving and wanted something a little less aggresive than my BFG A/T. I got mine off eBay from Discounttiresdirect for $732 plus OH sales tax, which kept it under $800. I highly recommend them to anyone! On my truck in my sig. I have 285/75/16.

I have them as well. They do very well on the street, wet and dry, very quiet at highway speeds and handle well and are controlled on turns, overall great tire. Now take them off the paved road and it will show their weak spot. Even in wet grass they have trouble getting traction, let alone sand or light mud. If you do 90% of your driving on the street you will love these tires but if you drive off road on a daily basis these are not for you, they just don't have enough bite. My truck came with these tires and I have put about 15K on them and they still have a good amount of life left in them, but my next tires will be the ProComp Xtreme ATs

I had these tires on 2007 Toyota Tundra Crewmax. Tires are very quiet and ride nicely on my old Tundra. However, towing was a different story. Tow a 8,000 lbs travel trailer. Inflated to 60lbs I believe, they became very squirrelly, would track all over the road. Making it even worse, when big rigs would fly-by it became a white-knuckle ride. I am comparing these to Nitto TG that were replaced with the Falkens. I am sure it would even be worse on the heavier F250. Would not recommend for towing, daily driving is fine IMO.

I just put these on my 250 and I love them. I came from the same sized 305/55/20 Terra Grapplers. Quiet and great in the corners. I hope they last like they claim.
