Easy tire upgrade

I swapped my 2018 trailhawk stock tires for BF Goodrich 225/65r17s on the stock rims. Zero modifications. Completely changes the look of the compass. Would highly recommend. I’m also selling my stock Falken wildpeak h/t tires with less than 11000 miles on them, message me if interested.

I'm stumbling over tires myself, but I'm curious to know what was wrong with the Falkens? I don't have much faith in OE tires for reasons mentioned elsewhere on this site, but I usually wear them out before replacing them.

Thinking of doing the same thing when the stock tires wear out. Did the road/tire noise levels go up very much?

Five bucks says what was the most "wrong" about the stock falkens was they were too small. You should know this by now :P

Jeep Owner: Sweet got a new Jeep!
Jeep Owner's Brain: Need bigger, beefier, more aggressive tires.
Jeep Owner: Why? Doesn't Jeep send it with decent tires that it was designed to have?
Jeep Owner's Brain: It's a Jeep. You just gotta.

I just wondered what this owner didn't like.

While the snow traction leaves much to be desired, the other half of the year my Firestone Destinations are pretty good. Then again I don't do much off-roading. Maybe if I did I'd be less impressed.

When the day comes, I'll probably go with Generals or maybe Michelins if they're affordable.

I'd keep Firestone on my short list but I was very disimpressed with Firestones on my Pontiac some years back. They provided better wet traction than the OE GY Eagles but they were very squirmy on a dry road -- almost like the old bias-ply tires.

The road noise definitely increased. There’s a low hum over 25 mphs. As for why I chose to get these tires, I just wanted a beefy tire. Although I did run into a problem with one of my oem wildpeaks. One night it just went flat. I took it to two tire places. No one could figure out why. No holes or anything. I didn’t feel like dealing with anything warranty wise so I just bought another wildpeak at the time. I assumed it was the best tire for this rim size, until I went to my local rim shop @nolimitbmore and they suggested the KO2s.

Exactly what I plan on doing next year when the tires wear out, looks good. Do you have a complete side profile pic?
