I am running the 305/65/18's. I love em. Good looking tire that is quiet on the highway. I tow a 8000 pound travel trailer with an ATV on a deck on the back and they are lasting just fine. I have just over 30000 miles on mine and they are wearing good with regular rotation.

That's what I was wanting to hear. I need something that'll actually last on the highway.

I ran them for 8000 miles and I didn't like them. I returned them to Discount Tire and had them replaced with Goodyear Duratracs. The Falken's felt squirley to me on the road in wet conditions. Since a majority of the year it is wet here I had to ditch them. They were a good looking tire for a good price though. If you decide to get them I hope you like them!

EDIT: I wanted to add that on previous vehicles I have run Falken tires and absolutely loved them. That is why I decided to put them on the truck when it was time to replace the tires. I wish I had liked them.

Anyone else? I need to hurry up and get some new ones.

Edit- I would like to get as many opinions as possible before I purchase.

I ran them on my 01 F150 I had prior to my 250...got great mileage, and was very happy with the ride quality with them. One of the quietest AT tires I've ever run. I can't speak to them on our heavier trucks though. I'm going Toyo Open Country AT2 shortly.

Yeah the weight of these trucks is what worries me. The toyo's I've got now have a max load rating of 3860 the falken's are 3638 just don't wanna spend 2000 on these toyos again they've been horrible.

Your toyos are that bad? A buddy has a 08 6.4 with 37" Tokyo MT, 33k hard miles on them and they have at least 65-70% tread left

They've been pretty well mileage wise. But ride absolutely horrible. They've been balanced by 4 different tire shops and at about 65 to 72 they'll shake you to death. I had 39.5" Iroks that were easier to balance than these 37's
