I have a 2010 Prerunner SR5 with stock Dunsuck tires. The only time my truck leaves the pavement is when I head to one of my fishing holes. Sometimes, I drive down muddy roads , or barrel through the occasional mud hole. Since my vehicle is a 2WD, would the front tires make any difference as to what kind of thread they have as far as traction goes since the power is coming from the rear? Most of the mud I drive in is sand-based, and not the gooy-stick stuff.
Also, if I put a couple of AT's or mudders on the rear only and left the front stock, how dorky would that look? I had mud grips on the rear only of my '78 chevy 1/2 ton, 6-banger and the set-up worked great. The body on that pickup was so banged up that appearance was not an issue.
