    Does anybody do this? If I got into it enough, it just seems like getting some cheap steel wheels with A/T's or M/T's mounted would be a good way to go; swap 'em out, wheel, come back, and back to nicer alloy wheels with highway all-seasons. :)

    If I had a hydrualic lift and an impact wrench I might consider it. I have a set of road tires for my dualsport motorcycle because driving on the highway with knobbies sucks... I'm too lazy to swap them whenever I need to though and they just collect dust in my garage.

    That being said, unless you go on multi-day wheeling trips, or have alot of spare time, you should probably just stick to one set of wheels/tires.

    I bought stock 16" steel wheels for off-roading. I got a great deal on them and I mounted my Pro-comp M/T on them.

    I do a lot of highway driving during the work week and the m/t tires were killing my gas mileage. Now I just swap wheels before I go off road. Takes about 15 mins with a floor jack and an impact wrench.

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    once my truck is set up a little more for offroad(read: can afford lockers, OBA, and skids) then i will probably do this. One set of aggressive ATs(like the GY Duratracs) for street and a set of beefy offroad tires like irocs, or LTBs for offroad only. Probably wont happen for a bit of time yet though since college and truck payments consume my money for a while yet.
