For anyone else in the midwest this storm has been pretty rough, St Louis decided that they weren't going to clear the roads with 5+ inches of snow, sleet, and ice so it was dog-eat-dog on the drive home from work. My normal 30 minute drive took over 2.5 hours. Good news is the tacoma performed amazingly. I was scared with all the bashing of the Dunlop tires I see on the forum that I was in trouble. I have a stock 4x4 reg cab manual 4cyl. Stock dunlop tires with 31k on them, 4/32" remaining which, according to my dealership is the minimum before needing to be replaced.
I didn't slip or slide at all on the drive home. I was in 4wd the entire trip and the tires felt absolutely glued to the ground. I saw between 60-80 cars off the road or stuck on hills and didn't have a problem once. At one point I was heading down a two lane road with a divided planter box in between, so you were stuck on it. Ahead was a short but steep uphill where a few cops were stopped digging out cars and pushing each car up individually. Waited in line for almost an hour (50+ cars ahead of me) before it was my turn to try and get up and the Taco motored up it no problem. There was even a point where the guy in front of me spun out and stopped on a steep uphill. I had to stop behind him and had no trouble getting going again. Hardest part of the drive was getting into the garage because it's a sharp turn in reverse, had to take it out of 4wd to prevent binding and that's the only time I spun the tires.
Anyway, just wanted to put some positive feedback out there on the Tacoma, and the stock tires are not all bad, but I am going to replace them this summer! So happy with the trucks performance.
