    Anybody rolling with these? I just went from stock to 3" OME lift and Goodyear Durataracs. It rides like shit compared to stock. The tires are loud and rough (D rated). I'm looking to switch to these new BFG's or possibly Nitto Terra Grapplers - P rated for a better highway ride. I want the look without the rough ride. I do mostly highway driving, no serious offroading.

    I thought I was just being a wuss but everybody who's been in my truck has commented how loud and rough the ride is now. Any help with a good looking decent highway ride tire would be much appreciated!

    I'm interested in those and the Cooper Discoverer AT3, but haven't heard any reviews of either yet.

    The problem with Discoverer AT3 is it only comes in E rated for size 285/70/17.

    Nitto Terra Grappler is the only AT tire I know of that offers a P rating in that size - I think that might be key to getting a decent highway ride, sidewalls are too stiff on D and E for a light truck like the Tacoma.

    yeah, i was just checking out the same terrain TAs. they look good for my type of driving too, 99% highway/street, 1% offroad/occasional dirt trails. i'd like to hear more reviews too.

    I'm 50/50 between the grapplers and BFG rugged terrains. BFG sounds like it's more for me. 95% highway driving. Duratrac looks badass but they are just horrible on pavement.

    I just pulled the trigger on the new BFG Rugged Terrains from discount tire direct - sounds perfect for my needs. I'll leave a review and some pics once I get them.

    Got p rated 285/70 terra grapplers because they are light weight. I think their 46 lbs. each, perfect for highway driving. Shop had e rated terra grapplers in stock, but glad I waited 2 weeks for the p rated tires instead.e rated tires are too heavy for my style of driving.

    I love the lift - makes the truck look much better. Duratracs look badass as well so looks wise happy - comfort wise not so much. Hopefully the diff tires will help :)

    I have the BFG AT at 285/75-R16 and I really like them. Recently I have had Cooper Discoverer STT's and Dunlop Fierce Attitude and I really like the BFG's. I gained 2-3 mpg over the more agressive MT tires and there is almost no road noise from them. They have not let me down when offroading but they seem to get chewed up easier if your baja-ing your truck.
    I recently did some pretty aggressive offroading down in Tucson, alot of sharp rocks and the tires did very well when aired down to 20psi, they flexed really good (although not as well as a set of M/T's would have). After the rock climbing I was doing some high speed runs in the open desert (I had to let the supercharger stretch its legs) and the tires got pretty chewed up. No chunks missing but for only having 1500 miles on them they look rough. That was mainly due to alot of tire spin on the rocks and 4 wheel slides in the desert. I will definatly reccomend them and buy them again...

    I have the Rugged Terrains they are a great tire. Not near as much road noise compared to a KO but still have the ability to go off road. I actually picked up around .5 mpg from the KOs. They ride great for an E rated tire and are a great mix if you don't want something as wimpy as a rugged trail but not as aggressive as a KO. I'm riding with the LT 265/75/16 E rated being as they got a little more beef than the P rated ones

    Yea, take your rugged Fails and burn them. Those were the most horrible and dangerous tires I have ever had on a vehicle. The BFG AT's are great, the KO's are very good, especially if you do a lot of offroad. I will say again, if your not doing hard core offroad go with the AT's. They wont leave you stranded and will go everywhere the KO's will go.

    Yeah I sold those pieces of crap to the tire shop so I didn't have to pay full price for the new tires.

    No, you can get them either white or black lettering out. One side of the tire is black, the other is white.

    I did the same thing. I sold those, my stock rims, and my 265 cooper stt's and got my 285 + some cash so I made out on the deal.
