So I need to narrow down my choices in tires. I'm choosing among 8 different tires and they are all between $800-$1010, so price isn't really a factor. The prices include shipping as well.
The main use for the tires will be about 50 miles a week on average, and probably a long road trip 2-3 times a year. In June I'll be making a 1200 mile drive as well as making a 1200 mile trip in October, so they would need to be bearable on the highway as well. I'd prefer to have a very aggressive tire, it just needs to be able to handle occasional long trips.
Any other tire suggestions just choose "other" on the poll and post what you suggest and why?
GT Radial Adventuro MT's - $804.61
I had these tires on my last tacoma and they performed very well, and weren't very loud at all. I didn't put many miles on them before I sold the truck, but I'm not sure they would last past 30,000 miles or so...
Goodyear Warngler Duratracs - $817.53
Everybody seems to like them, I've been told they're the closest you can get to m/t's in a a/t form, and that they last for a long time. The only con I know if is are the weak sidewalls...
Federal Couragia M/t's - $837.45
Don't know much about them at all.
Dick Cepek Mud Country - $883.17
These tires seem to remind me of the GT Radial Adventuro MT's, except a more reliable brand name.
Goodyear Wrangler MT r's - $939.53
These seem to me the new popular tire around Tacomaworld, other than that I really don't know anything. The thing I don't like about them is that thy driver side set will have a different tread pattern direction from the passenger side... Would bug the crap out of me!
Khumo Road Venture MT's - $964.33
Another tire I don't know much about, other than they look different from any other tire I've ever seen.
BF Goodrich KM2's - $985.49
These are the tires I favor the most, they look the best in my opinion and I've heard good things about them.
Nitto Trail Grapplers - $1008.21
I honestly just like the way these look as well, I just like the Nitto brand more or less
