What are everyone’s thoughts on the default Pirelli’s versus the upgradable Falken’s? Looking for feedback from those who have already taken delivery and spent time with their vehicle in the elements (off-road, snow, ice, etc)

As i've mentioned
Falken Wildpeak AT3 is my tire of choice. Glad its an option also!

Pirelli vs. Falken....
Really cant compare having not driven on pireli off pavement.
That said
The falkens are confident on the road. And excellent off road.
Traction is not an issue on either surface. Even rainy days on pavement.

The perelli are not terrible for an ome tire. Would say there ok/fair
and by the looks of that tread maybe a good icey snow street tire....but look up reviews to confirm?...

I have the scorpions on mine. They are good, quiet tires. Fine for me but next set will be the Faulkner if not just for the change

Can't comment as I don't have it, but generally haven't had too good of an experience with Pirelli's myself. Of course, that was ages ago, so things have changed

Actually glad I saw this, now I know once my sister starts looking this summer, to steer her towards models with the Falken's

Falken also came out with a
Wildpeak TRAIL AT

Looks aggresive but more tailored to pavement...than the AT3.
Test drove Bronco Sport with them.
Drove well. Good cornering on test drive. Steered well on small freeway sample.

**Falken website said they have a
65000 mile rating!!!!

If these came stock i would probably be fine with them.
They looked good on a 1" lifted base.

My1st choice still wildpeak AT3

Read a lot of great reviews on the Wildpeak AT3.

Fully intend on going with Falken Wildpeak AT3W in a 255/80-17. Pizza cutters FTW.
? Hmmm. Bronco OR Sport?
In one of the 'Built' article comments the person mentioned
The nobbier 245/65/17 rubbed.
Believe the Bronco Sport was Yellow.

Bronco. 255/80-17 is a 33x10. Thinner tires perform better in the snow and sand. And I like the look of pizza cutters over pontoons. Here is that size on a Wrangler.

Yea get that.
Thats why i asked what vehicle.
..
Cant (yet) do that size in the bronco sport

What are those on your wrangler?
Last set of mud tires 25 years back, were bfg. No siping.
Slippy slippy peal out....
Found out how much more i like the aggresive all terrain s.

Ran bfg At for years until last set rubber seamed bad or odd anyway.
Tried general gabbers AT.
Ok for first 10,000 miles but started seeing faster wear.
Sold
Went Falken Wildpeaks AT3.
Alllll gooood again!:)

I am a huge fan of the Falken Wildpeak A/T3 tires they hold up really well with what you can throw at them and if you plan on using the Bronco Sport for your dailey driver then they really are the best of both worlds.
