    A little late to the Party, but NEVER accept the 1st offer from the insurance company.

    Fight for another $1k or whatever you can get from them...

    Congrats on the '19 Taco! :thumbsup:

    Looking at the undercarriage photos it appears that the tires were worn and the outside of the treads were scalloped.
    As were the General Grabbers I was still running when I went thru a similar situation with my '06 AC.
    Luckily I was able to keep it upright...
    It cost me $450. For 4 new Firestone Winter force snows. Now I have a separate set of wheels and Snow tires for these New England winters..
    Glad to see you came through with minimal personal injury.
    Great looking '19 and love the color.

    I suggest you get a set of winter tires asap. In the very least, Goodyear Duratrac's are an All Weather tire with the 3 peak snow designation.

    I suspect that's so.
    Or shall we say the proportion goes up of 4WDs on the road?

    Two types of owners:
    1) Those with mission critical jobs where they have no choice in being on the road are more likely to have 4WD.
    That's a lot of guys. They keep things running for everyone else.
    2) And all the rest.

    I've had 4WD and it only helps so much. Good tires are important.
    Too many people get overconfident. I had to say it. :p
    But sometimes you get a pooch that can't be screwed.
    It's you that's screwed.

    How do you end up on your side going UPHILL????

    Not trying to be a smart ass or anything, but can't figure that one out myself.

    The consensus on TW is bad tired. I have driven with some pretty bald tires, way worse than what the op’s look like, and done ok, so I’m not sure.

    Glad you came out mostly unscathed. Get yourself a proper set of winter tires if you're going to be driving on roads like that, and congrats on the new truck!

    Oh it was definitely a combination of things. I'm just saying that friction between the road and the tires are definitely the root cause. Speed, hard braking, steering, or hard acceleration were the deciding factors on why the rubber and the road stopped being bros.
