    So I just got my Taco a few months ago, My first new truck ever. Anyways I've been getting major slippage using the factory tires (weather not asshattery), I also do some moderate off-roading. So what I want to know is what I should be looking at when looking for tires. I'm also on a budget...

    If you do moderate offroading I would suggest some all terrains.
    For size you will have to stay below a 33" tire if you are going to get the tires before you get a lift.

    An All Terrain tire would be your best bet from what I can tell. A lot of people run Bf Goodrich All Terrains, Bridgestone Dueler A/Ts, and Nitto A/T. Those are just a couple to get you started. They seem to be the most popular. Welcome to Tacoma World.
