Are Hankook M/T Tires to heavy for tacomas??

Just wondering if they are too heavy for a non-lifted truck with just the factory sports rims and the 5100's up front with the rear TSB.......265/70R/17 is the tire size but they only are availabe in 10 Ply......thoughts???

They're certainly heavier than you need for a Tacoma but it'll turn them. You might notice a slight drop in MPG's depending on the type of driving you do.

Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent.

Yeah they sure are a more heavier tire and allthough I am not an avid OffRoader I do hunt, Fish and Camp alot and living in Canada with our winters it sure would be helpful......lol......and loving the very aggressive look!! Not too mention I found a set delivered to my door through TireTrends for just over $1000.00 C.
