    I have a 2013 4-door, short bed, limited. It's 10,000% stock. Brakes, wheels, suspension, tires.

    My factory 265/60/R18 Bridgestone Dueler H/T's are wearing thin at 40k miles and I'd like to get something a little better looking as a replacement.

    I'd be most interested in something BFG, but I absolutely do not want to rub or have to worry about speedometer/MPG changes.

    TireRack.com is recommending the following:

    All Terrain T/A KO2
    Rugged Terrain T/A

    as stock replacements. Just by looking at them, I like the All Terrain T/A KO2s better, but regardless, both are listed as being on backorder.

    Does anyone have any other BFG recommendations? I live in So Cal so I don't really need rain, snow, ice or even "weather" tires, but am looking for something a bit less "street tire" than what I currently have.

    Thanks in advance

    Matt

    I've seen a lot of rave reviews about the Coop S/T Maxx's.

    I had no idea they made stock 18" wheels for tacos...always learning on this site! I just got duratracs, they look really nice. Before them I had hankook dynapro ATMs. Those are pretty good looking too and very affordable. I got good mileage with the dynapros, and they wore very nicely. Dealer bought them from me after 10k miles for $30 less than the brand new price per tire.

    I used to have 18's. Ugliest looking rim Toyota ever made for this truck hands down especially with that plasti-chrome Hubcap it has glued to the actual rim. I got rid of them insanely quick after I bought the truck. As for a subsititute I would go with a Cooper AT3. It's a LT tire and removes the passenger rating from it so you get great offroad capability out of it, and it is supposed to be very very versatile, and MUCH quieter then the BFG's. I currently run BFG's and I hate them. They are loud, they slip a lot on rainy situations and have just meh offroad grip in the dirt.

    Jesus dude, he said he wanted a little less of a street of a tire, not mud boggers.

    They're aggressive looking ATs, that according to reviews are actually pretty quiet. <shrug>

    I have actually heard they are fairly loud. Especially considering the Taco isn't the greatest at keeping the exterior noise down of the road inside the cabin in the first place.
