These are a set of 4 Falken wild peak M/T LT315/70R17 tires, they are supposedly in perfect shape, off a Gladiator, used for 5k miles comes with sensors too. He said he would take $600 for them.

Is it a good deal? Are they 35 inch tires? Good tires?

Thanks

315/70r17 is considered a 35" tire just in a metric size. It should measure out to 34.5" actual size. Those tires I can't comment on as I've never owned or used them, but for $600 for tires and rims it seems like a good deal to me. Look for reviews on those tires online and see what you come up with. Maybe the owner was having rubbing issues with that combination on a non lifted vehicle, maybe a set of wheel spacers will solve that problem.

The rims are part of the deal too, correct?

Thanks, the ad says they are coming off a Gladiator, I checked the specs on the tires and it sucks that they are not severe snow rated. I'll be sure to carry chains

I got them and installed them yesterday, they are definitely louder than the stock ko2s . Lol

I had them on my stock JL in 33's loved them, but went to 35's and the weight difference between 315 Falkens and 315 Pats was a big enough difference that I wanted to try and stay lighter. they ran on/off road great and the wear on them are amazing. Way better then Pats, but I knew this going into the purchase. I'm pretty sure my next set will be a more aggressive A/T though other then aesthetics I don't think a M/T is a necessity for what I do.

BTW, they look great on your rig!

Btw I checked Falkens site and compared the 35 inch tire vs 315/70 and they aren't the same, the 35 inch tire is slightly wider and taller and the tread is deeper.
