235/85/16 duratrac tires

Any one running 235/85/16 duratrac tires on a stock 2nd Gen Tacoma?
How do they fit? What is your opinion? What about mpg and performance?

nice. i ordered the same thing and they will be put on in a few days. i have no lift yet and didnt even think that they might cause bad rubbing. do you have any? if so when? articulation or turning? thanks.

My suspension is stock and I have no rubbing issues. So far I like them. I want to see how they do in the winter, the main reason I got them. A lot of old school guys say tall and skinny is the way to go in the winter. That is what I was after.

same here, and not only in the winter. it great everywhere exept mud. but you can always air down and get more track length than a 75 aspect ratio tire or whatever else. thanks ill get mine on friday.

theyre on and i love them. no rubbing too.

I know this thread is old, but what is the mpg outcome on these tires, any loss of power?

I ran these tires only in the winter so it is hard to tell on the MPG exactly. I loose 1 to 2 MPG for what ever reason in the winter with or without these tires. As far as power loss you can tell there is some difference but no big deal really with the 4.0 L . Lots of big steep hills where I drive and no problem with the truck hunting for a gear. The original
Tires weigh like 37 lb and the Duratrac is like 50 lb I think. Hope that helps.

How are you guys liking these tires at this point? I'm coming off a set of 265 duratracs that drove me crazy. Loved the sick looks and superb all around performace, but the noise and vibes made long road trips with friends/family trying to visit a pita.
I've read where some of the folks running these in Load E had less issues. Anyway, I was considering these in 80/17 which come in at 46pounds to help preserve mpgs. Tread life? I got 55k on my 265/75/16 c loads and still running on my old firewood wagon (T100).
Any update appreciated.
