cooper?? toyo?? or Nitto??

So, i do alot of driving in sand down here in south florida and ive been lookin at these tires since they all pretty much have a wide tread pattern.
Ive been lookin at these tires

-Nitto Terra Grapplers
-Toyo Open country A/t
-Cooper zeon ltz

Yes, i know im gonna get stuck either way with my pre-runner. But im lookin for the best tire that will help me as much as i can. I rather ask you guys then be bomb'd with informatin at the tire store.

Also, has anyone put big tires (31-33) on the enkei wt4 rims?? Im kinda leaning towards the Cooper Zeon Ltz cause they have 285-50r 20 for a cheap price!

Any of those would serve you well. Toyo is going to be the highest quality overall, Cooper the best value for the money. Nitto somewhere between the two.

Bfg, is mad exapensive for 20s or idk if they even have tires for 20s. I am lookin at Small rims such as atx thugs, but it all depends on the price. This guy is selling atx punishers for 380 tho but I really like te thugs. Right now he is giving me a deal with the punisher 18x9 rims for 380 for all 4, then terras to wrap that at 184 a tire. Also I heard that terras don't last long. But then again I heard that terras last long with our trucks cause they are light weight.

But then I found Cooper tires, so I'm just all mixed up on what I want!!! Bah !! Decisions decisions!!

TRD off road comes with 16'' and Sports come with 17''. so you can get those size rims to fit, just have to make sure oyu have enough spacing the clear the caliper.

as for the tires, i have 265/70/17 terra grapplers and love them. i know it's not sand, but we've had a ton of snow this year. i was able to struggle through bumper deep snow in 2wd, and made it through even deeper snow without a problem in 4wd.

i have also aired down to 15 psi for the really bad stuff, and it felt like pavement. while aired down i didn't have any leakage problems or problems with the bead.

so any of the tires will be good, but my recomendation is for the terra grapplers.
they're a good buy too. i got 4 of them mounted, ballanced, and installed for $500 + tax
