Falken Wildpeak 275/60r20... Loving the look, way better then road tires that were on there
What I run even in TX. (Falkens 275/65 R 18// 116T)(C load, not E) (M & S rated with symbol) (bought for the mud and rain, snow not so much, lmao)

FYI: 80 mph on IH 35, no humming, cupping, or excessive sound. Only downfall they R heavier than stock and I lost 1 to 1 1/2 mpg, but to be expected with a much more heavier tire than stock SRA's.

I just put a set of these on my 1500 maybe 2 months ago. So I agree about the handling and road manners in good weather.
The only bad weather we've had so far is light or heavy rain and the traction has been incredible, even when the rain is just beginning and roads are typically the most slick.

Like you I'm also looking to winter to see how they handle it but I expect they will do well.

I'm also looking toward a couple years from now to see how they perform when no longer new. I really like them from the start so I have high hopes.

I've been running an mpg test in eco mode just to see if it helps, will be Interested to see if tires effect mpg, my truck road noise is different with the tires, but nothing that's annoying, we've been lucky last couple winters, I hate to say, but I'm also looking forward to 1st snowfall

They look like good tires. You should get good wear out of them. Let us know come spring how they perform in the snow. Generally tires with larger tread blocks (and fewer sipes) are better on dry pavement. Around here they do a pretty good job of plowing the winter roads (And salting them too!! LOL).

Like anything ya gotta use good judgement and drive sensible no matter what tires ya have.

Cheers! :waytogo:

Winter not an issue, get our annual 1" more or less, usually less. The issue here is torrential rain/wet roads, and the occasional Hurricane or Tornado.
