Suggestions on stock size tires?

Just bought a new '11 double cab TRD Sport 4x4. I was already planning on dumping the stock Dunlap tires since they are worthless in the snow/sand. Any one have a suggestion on a tire that is solid off road but adds on road efficiency? Thinking about BF Rugged trail or Goodyear Silent Armor? P265 65R17 or P265 70R17

Cheers!

Michelin LTX AT2. I had them in stock size and they are great. Had 29,000 miles on them when I took them off and you couldn't even tell they were worn. Ride very well, and good in the rain. And if I were you I would step up to a 265/70/17.

^X2 I got Michelin LTX M/S best tires I've ever had, great on roads in any condition. The AT2 would be good for you since you like to offroad.

Do not get BFG Rugged Trails. They are referred to as Rugged 'Fails' on this forum for a reason.

They do well on road, but if you truly intend to do some offroading, I would not get them. Get some legit All Terrains instead

Does bumping the size slightly to P265 70R17 change mpg at all? Living in southern cal I drive a lot and most of my off road is heading up to the mountains in Tahoe and Mammoth so traction in snow is a must. I just don't want to sacrifice mpg.

Thanks for all your suggestions!

I don't think you will notice a change in MPG by going up to a 265/70/17. I went to a 285/65/18 in a Load range E tire and only lost 1.5 mpg on the interstate.

I went from 245/75/16 to 265/75/16 and didn't change much. The new tires have E rating and heavier than the stock Dunlops. I think the weight effected mpg more than the size.
