    I currently have a set of 245/70/16 Dunlop Grantrek AT20's on my Tacoma. They have been decent so far. I have about 38,000 miles on them and it looks like I may get another 15,000 out of them. However, when the time comes to get new tires I would like to upgrade to a larger tire, more than likely just a 265 due to me having to drive so much. I have tried to find the Dunlop AT20's in a 265 but am only finding the Dunlop AT21's. Are these the same tire just a different number due to the size? Does anyone have any experience with the AT21's? Do you recommend another tire with a bit of a beefy look that I could get 50,000 + miles out of?

    Michelin LTX MS2s seem to be a popular choice for a very high mileage tire. The 265 GrandTrek AT20's are available, but you won't find many people on here recommending them.

    pretty sure the AT21 is just the new model of the AT20.

    BTW the tacoma should have 245/75R16s not 245/70/16s

    The AT21 may have replaced the AT20 but it's a different looking tire and tread pattern. Here...

    I can understand wanting a fatter tire for looks, but I'm failing to see the reasoning behing a fatter tire because you drive so much?? :confused: The skinnier tires will give you better mileage and a 50k mile tire will give you 50k miles whether it's a 245/75R16 or 265/70R16. I'm not saying you shouldn't go with the fatter tire, but your reasoning for doing so might be a little off.

    I want a wider tire just for looks. If I can get 50,000 miles out of a larger tire then I will go larger. I do not want to go massive though due to gas mileage and I really do not want to put more than a 3" lift.
