Falken Wildpeak A/T3W vs Toyo Open Country A/T III

Falken Wildpeak A/T3W vs Toyo Open Country A/T III

Postby roosclan [OP] » Nov 20 2020, 9:25pm

Sooo... I just noticed that I can get Toyo Open Country A/T 3 tires for just $3/tire more than Falken Wildpeak A/T3W tires in 265/70r17 at Walmart.

Most of my driving is commuting to work, so road noise and tread life on regular roads is important, but not the #1 concern. I need something that will work great on the road in wet conditions going around curves, but my main concern with the tires is snow since I work at a hospital and absolutely must get to the hospital in bad weather when we are called in for emergencies. People don't stop having heart attacks just because there are 8" of snow falling that the plows haven't removed from the side roads yet. I live in an old part of town, so we are the last on the list to get the streets cleared.

How do these OC A/T3 compare to the Wildpeaks?

I'd get the toyos any day if the week. I haven't ran my AT3s un the snow since they are on my nice wheels. But if they are as good as the AT2s, they will do great. Plus the new AT3 carries the mountain peak designation, where as the AT2 did not.

My father has the falkens and they are good tires as well, but he is looking to replace them with toyos here soon. Once they got some miles on them, he said the wet traction got marginal and snow wasn't too great anymore either. When new they were great.

They wear pretty decent as well.

But my favorite tire is the toyo AT line. I'm on my 4th set and they have always been excellent tires for me. Way better than the BFGs im running now, which I am starting to not like so much.

I have both. Toyos on one set of wheels. Falkens on the other.

Falkens used to be super cheap. But if they cost as much as toyos now. Get the toyos.

Unless you want the winter rating of the falkens

The road noise isn't bad on the Toyo A/T3 unless your running 75-80 mph, then they are a little noisy. But then again, so is my exhaust... :)

From what I'm seeing, it's more the price of the Toyo tires are down. These are not the LT tires, so the cost isn't up there. And the A/T 3 tires have the same winter rating as the Falkens. I wasn't considering the OC a/t2 tires because of that, but with the a/t3 tires having the same rating and being basically the same price, I thought it was worth looking at.

I’ve had Falken WildPeak AT3’s for about 3-4 years now I’m on my 2nd set and they haven’t let me down, nice aggressive looking tread, perform great in the snow, mud, rainy conditions, decently quiet and overall I have no discrepancies with them!

I can second that! Once you get just below about halfway through the wet traction does get screwy but other then that as long as they’re rotated and kept in good standing they last pretty well!
