So I have spent hours searching the forums and reading reviews and I am still undecided. I have limited my options to Yokohama Geolander A/T-S, Firestone Destination A/T, and Bridgesone Dueler A/T Revo2. I'm sticking with the stock size, 265/70R16.
I drive my 2005 4x4 V6 Taco daily in north carolina, (~6 miles rount trip) on side roads. I do a little highway driving, but not weekly. I use the truck to haul various loads that can be heavy (gravel, mulch, home construction projects, etc). Haven't done any off roading, nor do i plan to do anything crazy, but i do venture to the mountains of western NC often. Also use the truck in the winter to drive northern PA. I'm currently running the BF Goodrich Rugged Trail T/A and i'm ready to try sometime new.
There is a price gap between them, which is part of the reason that this is a tough decision. Prices below are from tire rack and include the road hazard warranty:
Yokohama Geolander A/T-S $574.40 - $40 Rebate = $534.40
Firestone Destination A/T $632.32
Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo2 $767.00 - $100 Visa = $667.00
