    Hello all,
    I am new here so if this is in the wrong sub I'll be happy to remove it. I just bought a 2015 Tacoma and am looking to change out the wheels and tires. I have been going for a more "full" look to the truck and needed some suggestions on what to buy. Wall of text incoming...

    First I have a 2015 SR5 Double Cab 4x4 Tacoma (stock everything) in grey. I live in southern Texas so snow isn't an issue. I wont be crawling in this truck, just need it for general offroad such as basic trails, camping, fishing and hunting. My daily commute is about 5 round trip miles to work.

    I have narrowed the tire size I want down to 265/75r16 and needed some insight into how people liked a few types of tires. The first tires I came across that people really like where the BFG KO2's and I wanted to compare them to the Nitto Trail Grapplers. I'm looking for differences in the quality of the tire and tread life if they are to see mostly around town use. Personally I like the Nitto sidewall look and was also curious if anyone has an opinion on the Wrangler's.

    Lastly I was looking into wheels. I really like the five spoke look in either gunmetal or flat black. I am really looking to avoid the fake locker look. The BFD Wheels in gunmetal were my favorite, however 18" is a little large for what I want and $1200 is a little more than I wanted to spend. Are there any wheels that someone would recommend that look something like these in either black or gunmetal? The closest ones that I could find where the Konig Countersteer but I haven't been a fan of Konig in the past and was curious if anyone has had hands on with them.

    Sorry for the wall of text, and if you have any better suggestions I am completely open to them.

    watch tire weights if you wanna save on mpg's current KO2's in a 265/75R16 only come in load range E which are 53 lbs....

    Something like the Hankook Dynapro ATM RF10 in a P265/75R16 weigh 39.2 lbs. Thats a huge difference in rotating mass.

    As far as wheels, if i had to choose something other than the TRD beadlocks... it would be the TRD FJ trail teams.

    I have the toyo at2 and I think the sidewall looks a lot better than the nitto

    Welcome to TW. You will learn tons of info on here. To answer your question on tires, BFG obviously have been around forever, and their KO's are definitely proven and loved by many. I've used them on several trucks over the years. Prob a decent fit for your lifestyle. Tread life will last. Sorry, never run Nitto's so i can't help you there. I myself just switched to a Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac and love them. Great in snow, but doubt you need to worry about that. As far as wheels go, Im not a fan of bling or fake beadlock style either, though there a few cool wheels out there. I recently picked up ProComp 7032's and absolutely love them, although they are not a new design. I haven't dealt with Konig stuff since i was in high school, and that was along time ago!

    I would highly recommend stealth custom series wheels they weigh 2lbs lighter than stock and look very nice you won't be disappointed.

    The Stealth Wheels are really nice....for tires, if you aren't doing any serious rock running you might want to stick with P rated tires which weigh a lot less and actually come with a warranty (most LT tires do not have a mileage warranty etc). I used to run BFG AT's on my Tundra (about 100k miles total) but switched to the then new BFG Rugged Terrain (not to be confused with the Rugged Trail stock OEM tires). They have served me well for about 30k on a truck that sees quite a bit of mild off road and many miles of dirt / gravel roads. No issues to date and they also work great in snow should you ever need it. Also a lot of folks on here that like the Michelin's for street / light dirt use.

    Thanks for the info. Ill take the weight into consideration. The last thing Im worried about is rubbing. I dont mind taking off the mud flaps but would rather not have to trim. In your experience, is going to the 265/75's going to cause problems with a stock suspension?

    Edit: Truck has 1000 miles on it. I want to wear out my brand new parts before going crazy on much else... lol

    Thanks. I thought about staying with them but in the end I just really like the look of the truck with a more rugged tire to be honest. The warranty is a good point and I can get lifetime warranty for the KO2's but would have to ask about the rest.

    I recommend these, great MPGs, and perform a hell of a lot better than you would think.

    Thanks for the second vote for those. I will get a quote on them monday morning. On a stock suspension is there much risk of rubbing with these assuming I removed the mud flaps?

    you won't rub with 265/75r16. Especially if you're going p-rated instead of LT. P rated has shallower tread which makes a shorter tire.

    Tonight I purchased Dyna Pros in LT265/75/16 from Discount Tire. They had the P265/75/16 in stock so I got to compare them side by side. The LTs aren't much heavier but beefier all around and more tread depth. They were $30.00 more per tire but given the added tread depth I'll see more miles. I went with LT for the weight capacity and also for off-roading. We have a lot of rocky trails in Utah. Google and you will see nothing but praise for these tires.
