Could really use some advice on replacing the crapy Dunlops that came on my '09 Prerunner (dealer said they're 60k mile tires but I've got just over 30k and they're toast).
While I'd like something that looks cool, I'm very limited in budget and my main concern is getting a tire that corners well. I've been accused of being a speed demon, and I live in a very, very curvy/hilly area. (I don't get off-road, and only occasionally pull a load [trailer of dirt or firewood]). I'd love a tire that would last more than 30k miles, but I do understand my driving habits cut down on a tire's life somewhat. So I want to get a tire that's stiff/hard enough to still have some tread after a couple of years, but soft enough that I don't have to slow down taking 40 mph curves at 55.
I like the looks of the Hankook Dynapro AT-M (the LT version), but its ply rating is 10; is that going to be stiff, rough and noisy? I currently have 245/75R16s.
Thanks for any advice!
