Tire suggestions.. Turn this horse to glue

So, is tire time for me. Have about 3000 miles before it needs to be changed. I just read less pualkid01 post, and have been reading this post of the forum quite frequently, but I don't think I found the answer to my question.

The question is, I have the oem tires, should I just get oem "p" tire or "lt" tire. They have gone through upstate NY snow, and are going on 40k.The Truck is about a year old. I have not had any problems with the tires. Goes anywhere I asked so far. From farmers fields, to snow covered roads. I don't tow ever. My bed stores bulk items, but light items. I am thinking the P is the way to go. Had no problems, why fix it if it is not broken. Thanks for the advice. Like I said, I have researched but did not find this answer. Please avoid telling me I need rock scrambling tires. This is a a 72 mile a day commuter first. Thanks again guys.

Tire Rack says best reviews are Firestone Destination A/T.

IMO, you don't need LT tires on a Tacoma unless you do lots of heavy towing/hauling or off-roading. If you're happy with the stock tires, slap another set on her and be done with it. If you want a best-of-both-worlds tire, look at some A/Ts. I just got new tires and ended up going with Hankook DynaPro ATMs in P265/70R17. They're pretty quiet and smooth like street tire but off-road capable if needed.

If you were happy with the OEM tires then you'd be fine with P rated tires. You can either go Highway or All Terrrains but they would be a bit heavier than H and usually more expensive. Hankooks Dynapro's or Nitto Terra grapplers are a nice balance of both and not too expensive. I have Falken Wildpeaks Highway tires on the first gen and have no complaints.

From my experience the LT tires with the higher air pressure and stiffer sidewalls, don't seem to grip as well on ice and snow as the P rated tires. Some may disagree, but on these lighter trucks I've had better traction on ice and snow with the winter rated P's.
I just put a new set of P245 75 16 Mastercraft Courser MSR's on my Tacoma. I replaced a set of LT's that were M&S rated, but weren't that great on snow and ice.

I 2nd the Hankook Dynapro ATM's. They were a great tire on and off road. They are a P rated tire so don't expect hardcore off roading from these but farm roads/ light trails and snow they did great in. I had them in a 265/70/16 and was great for a stock tacoma. Since then my need have changed and I moved up to mud terrain but I still think back to my dynapros especially when my gas mileage took a 50 mile/ tank hit.

If you like the OEM tires....you can't go wrong.

The OEM tires on my truck were the Dueler H/T's..... They worked great for 4 years.

But personally...they look too much like a damn SUV/CAR tire!! I had to get something more aggressive looking. I went with Dueler Revo A/T. I haven't looked back....

Yeah tire take offs can either be vehicles that got in an accident and still had good tread. Or the dealer switched out the stock tires for an upgraded tire. Either way try and get some kind of warranty so that way if something is wrong with them you can get your money back.
