They are pricey.

I hunted down the best possible deal on the Wildpeaks but even without a deal they are 70-80$ cheaper than KO2 in my size per tire; more so than KM2.

I was really undecided between the Ridge Grappler's even better off-road performance (mud, chiefly) and the Wildpeak's P-metric advantage (uniquely strong sidewalls for a P-metric coupled with P-metric advantages like better ride and no need to air down most of the time). So, the low price of the Falkens sealed the deal.

Ko2 are most expensive all terrain tires in this size that i could find. still.. they damn good. wildpeaks ATW was in my radar as well. but i needed snow tires as well then to be good on wet and dry and mud and not too noisy. and i would never need mud tires on my outback.

If you have the AT3W, consider them for your next set. They are winter rated as well and have better rain performance than KO2. Your Outback's AWD is masking the Ko2s deficiencies in rain. Plenty of complaints on the 4Runner forum (most 4runners are RWD on pavement).

I'm running these ATs at the moment. So far so good...
  1. they seem to be a softer compound and hence quieter on the road. My vehicle is also prone to front brake caliper rattle, but this seems to have gone with these tyres.
  2. The tread is a bit chunkier than the previous model, and I now get minor rubbing of the rear inside of the left front tyre on full left steering lock. (i'm running 215 / 75 R 16).
