I am one of those, "what ever floats your boat", kind of person so if you are into "aggressive" looking, or off-road tires, I'm OK with that. However, that is not what I am looking for.
My Tacoma is not a 4WD. It is a '07 Double Cab. It will live all it's life with me ON road, mostly highway. The tires on it now are a Firestone with about 15K miles of life left on them. They make a horrible noise.
I will be looking for a set of tires that have three primary characteristics. They need to have good longevity, they must be quiet, and have good wet road handling capabilities. I personally couldn't care less what they LOOK like. I am a function over form kind of person. 90% percent of my purchases are use/mission/performance based, cosmetics add nothing to this equasion.
I hope I am not asking too much in a tire for this truck, but I put about 30K miles on a vehicle a year so I don't want to be buying tires every 1 1/2 to 2 years. 90% of these miles will be interstate highway miles.
