Both of these tires are really new by both companies, so it's hard to find good comparisons on the two. Plan on getting size 245/65/R17. My priorities are how they handle in the snow, weight/MPG, looks and road noise. Both are rated great in the snow and weigh almost the same so looking for people's thoughts on MPG and road noise. Thanks!

I went with 245/70/16 AT3s based on the reputation of the AT2s, the more aggressive sidewall, and the 65k mike warranty.

Toyo website lists the 245/65s as 34 lbs. Avg mpg is about 24-25 for mixed driving. I can’t comment on handling in the snow here in Texas, but my wife says they handle better thank stock. I heard minimal increase in road noise compared to factory tires, but I also drive a Jeep on 37” MTs so my tolerance to road noise is probably higher than most. Lastly, I’ll add that toyos seem to be much more common than the wildpeaks, at least in the Jeep world. Having said that, I’ve never owned or even ridden on the falkens so I cant say anything bad about them.
