i have a 2011 tacoma dc 4x4 sr5 short bed. i will be putting a 3" toytec lift on next weekend. shopping for tires and wheels. i've always ran mud tires on my trucks. Tsl swampers, maxxis buckshots, and old gumbo mudders. not real familiar with the new brand of tires..I live in alabama where we have mud mud and more mud. where i hunt, ride and play is all alabama red clay!! mud tires a must. with that said i know mud tires get poor miles and not very good mpg. i love the noise so that not an issue. my questions are
1. what mud tire do you get best milage out of for those that run them? ( most important)
2. best handling?
3. best mpg?
4. 265/75/16 or 285/75/16? ( how much scrubbing with 285?)
now for wheels. do i need a off set wheel for the above truck and lift?
ive read thread after thread and for every positive on any tire there is 5 negitives and vis versa. thanks in advance for comments. gonna be pumping about $3800 inside and out on this mod and wanna do it right!
