Wondering if anybody has Falken Wildpeak' AT3W all_ Terrain Radial Tires on the ML.
I purchased 265/70R17 115T hopefully they will fit on stock suspension of 2002 with 17inch factory rims.

Here are the oem sizes:

These should fit fine, but your overall tire circumference is off.

I am running at1 about 3 years with 265/65/17 on my 2001 ML. It鈥檚 quiet good. This one would be better than at1 I suppose.

55 or 60 is the oem ratio
so assuming 60 ratio.... look here =====>

8-9% change in diameter. You may pull the eps to flash.
Typical allowable is +- 3%
ESP does not care as long as all tire sizes are same. Speedometer and odometer will be off by ~8%.
All hell will brake loose if one has puncture and puts on spare.

I'm running 265/70/16 with no issues. I did give the front torsion bars a few cranks though just in case

I am running 265/70/17 BFG KO2 on my ML430 with no issues. Falken was actually a very close 2nd choice for me and will probably give them a try in the future. Found too good of a deal to pass up the BFG's.

Im running 285/70/17 bfg mud terrains on mine. I had 265s on at first and now issues once i turned the torsion bars up slightly to level it out. You should not have any issues. Ive test fit 305/70/17 and they clear the front but not the rear. Waiting on new struts and spacers first before i run the 305.

Here is the 265/70/17 on mine with only the torsion bars cranked up to level out. Stock height other than that.
