    Howdy,

    Another newbie question. I have a 2009 Black Tacoma Double Cab 4X4. I will be gettting new tires & wheels within the next few weeks. I've decided to go with the 265/75/R16 tire/wheel combo based on what I've read in this forum. It will be some time if and when I will ever add a lift.

    My driving habits are primarily paved/concrete roads with the occasional crappy rutted out muddy access road and vacationing once or twice a year in the Colorado Rockies during the winter.

    For tires I'm considering the following:

    BFG All Terrian KO's

    Michelin LTX M/S's or LTX II's or whatever their equivalent is called now
    (I got over 100,000 miles from a set of these on my 99' 4Runner)

    For wheels I'm considering the following:

    Discount Tire brand MB Razor's

    American Racing Baja series 172 polished

    Ultra 164

    I have attached JPEG's of the wheels I'm considering. Sorry, I'm not quite saavy enough to embed the pictures into the thread.

    I'm not a big fan of the black on black look some have chosen but to each their own of course. I love the classic look of black against polished aluminum though. And I seem to prefer the wheel style with round holes around the circumference of the wheel between the center hub and outside rim of the wheel.

    Of course I'm open to suggestions and would like to see if anyone else has a similar set up with pictures to share.

    Thanks,

    Mike in Foat Wurth

    Depending on how rutted and muddy the road is you might want to do the BFGs. If you're doing mostly highway, I'd go with the Michelin M/S. I've had both tires, and the M/S is better for on the road (Wicked wet traction) but the BFGs are better off road. However they do have a much harsher ride than the michelins and they are bit louder.

    Both are excellent tires that will serve you well regardless.
