After reading several great reviews I decided to go with the LT series. Falken Wild Peak LT265/70R17-121 . Should be delivered in about 1 week.

The Falken WildPeaks arrived yesterday. Mounted, balanced and installed last night.

Darned TPMS light on this morning. "Technician" had a very difficult time with the valve cores - could only get 1 of the 4 to unscrew (I hate road salt!) so he removed the nut and pressed the TPMS nipple into the tire to deflate. I am guessing this damaged a couple of them. Is it possible to turn-off the warning light permanently in the OBD2?

Plus 2 on both comments sbove. Do not be the "nice guy" with this shop. Tell them you expect this to be resolved.

And it does look sharp.

I have put about 3000 miles on the Gen 3 since taking over ownership. I really like this truck. The Wildpeaks perform well but are really loud. When I selected these I read many on-line reviews and they all commented on how quite these tires are. I strongly disagree on the quite statements. Although unquantified I think they are as loud as my MTZs. Took the truck on a 1650 mile pheasant hunting trip to North Dakota in October. Averaged 18.5mpg. Not terrible. Very comfortable.

Took the Gen 3 to the dealer this past week for a PM timing belt, tensioner and water pump. About 97K on the clock. Cost $1260.
