On my buddys 01 Taco, he is at 99K on his BFG kKO's! IMO they are past replacing, but for street/hwy only, they are fine. Probably 3/16-1/4" tread left. No cracking, chunking, etc...

In addition, we just did the Crown King trail a month or so ago, soupy rocks, big hills, full locker needed, & he did fine.

I wouldn't put Goodyear's on a bicycle. I've never had any good luck with Goodyear.

Have you considered the General Grabber AT2? They're $117/ea on TireRack, and I've found that local tire places generally match that price. General Tire also offers a $50 gift card w/ the purchase of 4 every couple of months. I thought it was going on now, but it must have just ended.

They're about as highly rated as any tire I've seen on TireRack, and they have a 50k mile tread life warranty.

I used to have a set of revos on my old cherokee. They might be a good choice if you don't have to deal with ice and snow. As far as basic A/Ts go, I'd choose a toyo open country A/T over a revo based on my experience with both.

There are a lot of folks here that run the Firestone Destinations w/ excellent reviews.
The biggest criteria challenges I find is when a general question is ask about what is the best a/t for snow is
1.where do they live,
2.what type of snow, a few flurries, more slush/ice or heavy, large accumalations?
3.what type of driving as in all highway, a mixed bag, class IV types etc.

I purchased my Silent Armors because they were an A/T tire snow-rated (had the little symbol). I can tell you from driving in Vermont, these tires performed "ok", mainly because we tow a lot & see a lot of mixed conditions, heavy wet snow/black ice/slush/regular ol' puffy light fluff in large amounts. This year we changed to a dedicated studded snow tire. The SA's are now only used on the summer rims. I did look at tires on the tacomas around here in Winter time and the majority were Firestone, Cooper, Nokians and Bridgestone Revos.

I know a member here who said his Silent Armors were great in snow, but was in NJ fwiw.
Also David T. is in the biz so to me a subject matter expert. Maybe he will give you his experience too.

I had the BFG's on my GMC Sonoma Zr2, and I plan on getting a set for the Taco soon... I'm in central NY, and we get a ton of snow, and I've also used them off road, and they handle everything... plus they are great on the road...
