I'm going to take delivery of a 2013 Tacoma, my first Tacoma. Looking forward to it. I also have a bit of a tire fetish! It's coming with 17" rims, 265/65/17 rubber. Nothing fancy. I have no plans to modify the truck, but I do like decent rubber.
I drive on highway, construction sites daily, deep snow in the winter from time to time.
For the last 6 or 7 years i've been riding around on BFG All Terrain KO's, I've been though two sets. I love them. Being snow rated too is a terrific plus and they have never ever been stuck anywhere unless they wernt touching the ground! But they were always Load range C, 6 ply tires.
In a 265/65/17, the BFG AT KO only comes in Load Range E, 10 ply. Will that be too stiff and hard for a light truck like the taco? Anyone got any actual experience?
Are there any other all terrain load range C snow rated tires out there that I could try instead?
Would like to hear from anyone who has tried load range E tires on there taco. And suggestions for alternatives.
