Re: Fed Up with Falken Wildpeak AT3Ws
I run the Wildpeak AT3W on my LR3 and I had them road force balanced on the first installation because I wanted to avoid issues. I had them installed at our Cadillac (and former Saab) dealer because we have always had a Saab and fully trusted the guys there to do it right. Some tires took 6-7oz of weight and they could not get 2 tires below 35 lbs of road force. Around town they are definately smooth and quiet. On the highway they are great until about 70 and then there is a slight vibration that progresses with increased speed. It's not enough to cause issue or be any kind of safety concern, but I notice it.
It's frustrating because these have been my favorite tire so far, they have not slipped on any surface (dry, wet, snow) and are quiet for the tread design. I am really torn as to whether I will buy them again. My wife just got a set of Yokohama Geolandar AT 1015 to replace her Duratracs (which got so loud it was a joke after 25,000 miles) and she is thrilled - she says hands down they are the best tire she has driven on. Her only gripe is that the design is not as beefy as she would like, but then again, they probably would not perform as well if they were "beefier" - we're all forever chasing the perect tire!
