You're right... not even close!!
yeah, my TH came with the falken hto1, the F150 I traded in on the TH, had the AT3W for almost a year, I loved them.
I emailed falken several times suggesting the make the AT3W in a 215or 225/65R17 to fit the trailhawk. had a back and forth email conversation with some guy from product developmet, he sounded interested in what i had to say. Now, like 8 months later they release a size to fit the TH.
Don' know if I actually helped make it happen, but I like to think I did. lol

The AT3W look good but I'm in the same boat as Jim it is too much a/t for my driving. The g015 seems to hit that sweet spot of getting me 200 miles to the farm and having enough offroad performance to play on the trails there.

I have been riding Yokohama G015 for about 1 year and I am satisfied with my choice. I consider them valid in the light and comfortable off-road on asphalt. If I have to find a fault in my opinion they are less suitable on snow and ice but I used them on this surface on a really difficult path and I would have expected more.

Compared to the Wranglers that came on it thought. They are above and beyond a better tire and should be a standard on the TH in my opinion. Where I live you may have 1-4 days of snow and ice on the roads so that isn't that big of a deal. But the light trail use at the farm and with some water and mud on the trail these perform as expected.

Again another newbie to this , however I will ask away , if the stock trailhawk combination is 215/65/r17 which result in 28 inch diameter tyres , I assume if I buy some 16 inch wheels , I like these they look 'basic' (terrafirma tf4408 ) and fit yoko Geolander 215/70/r16 to them (resulting in 28.2 diameter wheels ) I have achieved equilibrium



I can also fit 225/70/r16 to the same wheels (?) and they should not rub ?

225/70r16 = 28.4


compared to my 225/65r17 = 28.5
I would get an occasional scuff with the wheel turned slightly going up a curb, or playing off road while the wheel was slightly turned.

Going fast is only half the fun... You get to build it first.

Thanks for the reply, what would cure this , spacers or lift kit ?

Spacer gives you clearance between the strut and the tire, widens the stance, looks cool.

Lift would give you some clearance for a larger tire.

SOMETIMES, it requires both, depending on how big of a tire you are wanting to go.

225/65r17 will clear with just a 1.5" lift (no scuffing).

Again thanks for the reply, does your scuffing experience apply to a Trailhawk or non-trailhawk Renegade (Thinking about the difference in factory lift on stock vehicles)
