just move up to 17" wheels and run the 255/80-17 it really is a great size and the Falken AT3w is incredibly smooth for an E rated tire. F6CEA28D-ED21-44A3-8E4F-0208EB68FA63.jpeg

I have the Extreme Country in 255- not exactly quiet to my ear, but really impressive off-road. Even at 20-25 psi the traction is fantastic in rocky & loose terrain and a little lower can haul me through deep sand, which I never expected from a "skinny" tire.

Guess I should clarify what I meant , they are semi quiet for as aggressive as the tread is , pictured don’t really do them justice

I´ve been runnnig these since last Nov. I was surprised how quiet they are on pavement. Much quieter than my last 2 sets of tires (bfg ta/ko2/cooper disc stt). Price was good.

Same here. I have 255/80R17 on my truck and 255/85R16's on my Jeep, and am happy with both. Replaced same size Maxx's on both vehicles. The Maxx's were also good tires, FWIW.
All made in the USA.

It really pains me to see people buying tires made overseas when there are really good options available that are made here in the USA. Especially in the times we're in now, it seems to me that keeping American workers employed should take priority over saving a little on a set of tires...

Defiantly would love if they made the at3w in that size or a 33x10.50r15, can't justify the MT with our winters and how much pavement I do
