    Hello guys!

    I'm looking for some good tire recommendations. I currently have a 15' access cab 4 cyl. I don't really do any off roading except for the occasional driving through grass somewhere for fishing or whatever. I live in the city and drive 150 miles highway once a week.

    I would love to have an aggressive looking tire but I know that's geared more towards off road tires. You think I could still get an on/off road tire and be fine? I saw the Cooper Discoverer AT/3's and like the way they look and they wont break my bank. Can I get away with using these with the type of driving I do?

    What would you guys recommend? I really don't want to go over $1000 either it's gonna kill me.

    Thanks!!

    I have no regrets about going from BFG AT to AT3's.

    I like my Duratrac tires & didn't go 285 or load E. 275 & load C (which is what's meant for our trucks) & I couldn't be happier. They're showing wear already so they're not lasting quite as long as I had heard/hoped but I still dig looks & performance for the value.

    The Cooper AT3 is a good choice, they have pretty good road manners, and still do great off pavement as well. Another one to look at is the Toyo AT2, which performs very similar to the Cooper.

    The Rugged Trails that came on my OR were amazing. They worked perfectly for driving off the lot.

    Too poor to list anything interesting.
    TL;DR I highly recommend the Cooper ATPs

    My Cooper ATPS were great. That's the discount tire edition of them. The 265/75 worked out well for DD. They were about $160/tire IIRC.

    They've proven themselves to me on heavy rain, road trips, overland adventures, and mild wheeling.

    TW thread about the ATPS:
    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/cooper-discoverer-atp.189333/

    I've moved onto 255/85 because I love paying more in gas to DD. But my fiancee has my ATPs on her Jeep now and they still work great. They have about 60K miles on them.

    That's about the limit of their capability too.

    If you don’t off road, get an all season tire. Better traction,last longer,better mileage and there quite on the road.
    As far as not breaking the bank, look at Firestone destinations , for more money look at Michelin.

    If your current tires are working for your needs (including the grass excursions) but you want a more aggressive look, I suggest an oversized radial tire. Such as a 225 or 235/70R15. Might take a slight hit in fuel economy but nothing near the hit of an off-road tire (not to mention road noise from OR tires), and at the same time they will probably last longer than the stockers simply being a larger radial tire. My truck is a 2006 model but otherwise similar to yours, it has stock 215/70R15 radial street tires. I certainly don't need an offroad tire but I do want something that fills these large fenders better... it's the one vanity mod that I will actually do to this truck.

    Here is a good example: https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tire...&tireModel=Wrangler+SR-A&partnum=37SR5WSRAOWL

    If you want an aggressive looking all terrain that wont break the bank I would go with the Mastercraft Courser AXT(made by Cooper) or the Falken Wildpeak A/T3W.

    The Wildpeaks are slightly more agressive, but still not a dedicated off road tire. Both would be fine for daily driving.

    The Toyo Open Country at2 is a really good all terrain tire that looks fairly aggressive , doesn't hold sling gravel and is quite on the road. Ive had good luck with them, I think you'll like them.
