Longest lasting, quietest tire

If money were no object, which tire would you pick for replacement of the BFGs that come stock on an '02 TRD X-Cab 4x4? 265/70R16.

I'm looking for quietest, longest lasting. I don't want to buy tires again for quite a while. 80% on road.

Youre kidding right?

Mostly Street Use... the Longest/quietest tire = Michelin LTX M/S hands down

If you want an All Terrain, Id say Toyo Open Country AT, Nitto Terra Grappler are toss up or BFG All Terrain (long lasting but not as quiet & more expensive)

I had a set of Goodyear TripleTred Assurance on my Corolla. Incredible tires. If their Futura line (TripleTreds for trucks) is as good, I'd go with them, IF the truck was gonna stay only on the road. For off-road, I'm gonna be watching this thread.

Don't forget tire rolling resistance: the less resistance, the better the gas mileage. Google 'tire rolling resistance' or try for example: http://onlinepubs.trb.org/Onlinepubs...tance_Data.pdf

I'm interested in whether the previous replies are really considering how quiet a tire is. We can find data on rolling resistance and treadware, but does anyone report the relative NOISE of a tire? Since a Tacoma is a bit noisy from wind noise and lack of insulation, I'd love to know how quiet a tire will be before I buy it.

Firestone Destination AT's. Totally silent, excellent street traction and very competent off-road as well. Check out the tire ratings at TireRack.com.

Firestone Destination AT's - these seem to be coming up in more posts than others. I had heard some good things about these, but have had no experience with any Firestone tires in the past...

Michelin LTX M/S - I've always heard good things about Michelin tires, the guy at Discount Tire told me these would be the best hands down when I asked this question there about 6 months ago...

I currently have the BFG M/T KM2s on my Jeep, they are relatively quiet for a M/T tire, and are great off road. These work for my Jeep, but looking for more street friendly for my Taco.



I appreciate all the feedback!

Why would I be kidding? I have a buddy with a set of 35"s on his truck and those things are fucking awesome.

I don't really care to much about them being quiet. Moms Sequioa has the LTX M/S and her first pair lasted 70K miles. Great tire, but not near agressive enough for me.

I'd also really like a pair of KM2s.
