Most Aggressive Looking All Terrain 265s?

I want rid of my stock Rugged Trails and am looking for some good ATs. I know the favorite is the BFG ATs, but I was also eyeballing the Firestone Destinations and the DuraTracs.

Id love something mean looking in a 265/75/16, and Im one of those freaks who likes white outline lettering or raised white lettering (SWhite truck).

Any thoughts...suggestions...reviews?

I have those and they are pretty close to BFG and they look way better than toyo i think. great traction and the tread wear has been great thus far.

The Goodyear Duratracs are the most aggressive IMO Their like a cross between an A/T and a M/T

Yeah...I keep coming back to the DuraTracs. What load rating would be suitable if I occasionally (a few times a year that is) pull a 20ft boat? Otherwise street-offroad-winter use.

Any LT tire should be fine on the tacoma for towing/hauling. Load C, or D would probably be best as some say E's are a bit on the stiff side.

Local tire guy told me that the BFG AT's are a superior tire to the Goodyears...

I just picked up a set of the BFG's (6th set). These are 265's.

BFGs are good but the Goodyears are too...

BFGs are over priced to me

The Grabbers are FAR superior to the BFG's.


But really, I like them way better, the BFG's seemed to be a harder compound and slipped more. just my .02

Could be, I never looked at the grabbers...a shop back home sold alot of the grabbers and they always wore out really fast...

I only looked at the BFG AT's and the Goodyear Duratrac's because those are the only AT's that I know of with severe snow ratings. (snowflake on side of tire)

Mine are snow rated as well. I have about 12k miles on them and they look like new. They are worth a look. Cheaper than the BFG's, they clean mud better, and they have a more distinct sipe than the BFG's. I was nervous about buying them, but am really glad I did. Don't get me wrong, BFG's are nice, but I won't buy another pair after having these.

Friend of mine at work who hunts in some rough places in his Tacoma just put a set of Cooper tires on his truck. They are meaty and have a pretty aggressive tread pattern on them too. I would definitely look into them if you are a Cooper fan.
