Mud tires also suck in sand. So, keep that in mind if you do a lot of wheeling in sand.

my RT03's work equally well in sand and mud...
rock/snow/ice/rain and street duty performance is good as well.
not to mention their lower buy in cost

IMO... the RT03 is a great "all around" choice when considering off road tires.



Looks like a AT... but treads like a MT

I also have RT03's. I would've voted for them if they were in the poll. They wear like iron!

I'm considering the Grabbers as my next tire when the time comes, though.

To each his own. I've seen/heard nothing but good things about them except for mud/snow performance, which we rarely get here in the High Desert.

I also hear they're a bit heavy, but who buys a truck for mpg anyway? haha

But who knows, my mind will probably change by the time my Hankooks wear out lol

The weight is why i steered away from them, my nittos were insanely heavy and load range E didnt flex well for me offroad, my 35" Hankooks weigh only 64lbs, i gained 2-3 mpg's from switching. I agree mpg doesnt matter much to me, but it was nice seeing 17 mpg on the highway at 65mph for the first time in 4 years since i started running 35" nittos

The grabbers are a great looking tire and ive witnessed them doing work in the dez

Between those two I would go for the Toyo's 100%. But over all I would either get BFG KM2's or Micky Thompson MTZ

Being that tires are so freakin' expensive, I'll probably have to get one at a time. My problem...I'm having trouble finding anything that I know isn't going to wear out super fast, and is as aggressive as these BC's I'm using.

Everything I see looks way too smooth for me. The enormous sidebiters have spoiled me. I put my 35" BFG AT I use for a spare on the other day and was so embarrassed just looking at it at my house, it had to come off immediately. It looked like some dune buggy from the 70's.

This truck needs incredibly aggressive tires that are going to wear decently, ride smooth on the road (probably radials this time around) and come in under $300 a tire. This truck isn't my daily, but will see asphalt on it's way to the dirt. Everything Discount shows me I laugh at. They're all so wussy looking after running these things for 8 or more years. Ideally I want to go with some 38"ers, but they have to be chunky as fawk. Looks like I'm going to have to dig down into the wallet real deep.
Ive been running the Baja Claws myself(35x12.5x17). I absolutely love them for traction! I noticed the little wandering my truck was doing on the trails with the A/T's and with the Baja Claws I feel planted.

I havent had any balancing issues. And im running a beadlock too.

But Ive gotten a flat and yes it is expensive per tire. but thats the price you pay to play.

If you want some nice tires that are used try to see what some of the race shops have. Sometimes they sell them cheap when they get a new set under a sponsorship program.

Agreed! I like my RT03 better than the KM2s I had last. Cheaper, roll on road better, and just as much grip for what I've tried them on so far. They will do just fine for the terrain I put them through.

I have a 1998 2.7L 4x4 Tacoma and wanted to see what size All-Terrains I could fit on the stock rims? (The specifications) I do about 85% road, 15% when I'm camping/kayaking on the weekends. I think an All Terrain is a good balance?

Falken WildPeak A-Ts are great tires.
Yeah, made in China but the traction is great and the wear is outstanding.
Price is the kicker!
