New 255/70r18 Falken AT3W

Just put the Falken Wildpeaks on today. Local Discount Tire matched the prices I saw in Discounttiredirect. Only a few miles on them but I like them so far. I have the SV with Sport Appearance package with 18 in wheels. Original tires were 265/60r18. I have 1.5 inch lift.
A few observations-
- Much quieter over small bumps and expansion joints. I have not yet played with pressures. Expected going from 60 series to 70.
- I can feel performance difference due to larger size(ratio) and weight. But it is small.
- Very close to mud flaps. I think I heard rubbing while in reverse but nothing forward.
- These are the SL not LT. Tread depth is a little short but that makes the weight better.

Thank you for posting some photos along with your observations. They look great!

We appreciate your support.

Small update
- I did trim the mud flaps because there was very minor contact.
- Indicated 60 mph on the speedo is 61 on the gps. So more accurate than original tires.
