Arrow Better Tires or Better Wheels

So I am wondering if it's better to get Duratrac with Black Rock D-Window Alloy or Nitto Terra Grappler with XD Revolver wheels? In other words, better tires (Duratrac) or better wheels (XD Revolver)? Looking at getting 265/70/17 for my Black 4 door 2007 Taco.

Better tires. I think the black rock wheels look better than the XDs.

IF Truck.Use = 'Mall Crawler' { Execute BetterWheels }
ELSE { Execute BetterTires }

Basically if your truck serves a purpose beside showboating, get the tires... yea, eh?

Go for the Duratracs...they're awesome. I've got mine mounted on the stock wheels. Once i can afford it i'll get the wheels i want, but the tires connect me to the earth...therefore they take precidence

Most of my driving is street but so some off-road in summer and lots of driving off road in winter over ice and snow.

I am biased to the XDs because I have those same wheels. But the rock wheels look good too, and I didn't like the nittos personally.

I voted Duratracs because...

1) I got them and they are VERY good tires.
2) I HATE the Revolver rims. WAY too pimpish for a off-road truck.

YMMV
