    Hey guys got a stock 08 trd sport 4x4 and wanted to get some new tires on it, was thinking of some that give an "off roadish" look. of course in the future ill be wanting to do some offroading but not sacrifice ride quality as i drive alot on the highway. any suggestions? thanks

    I've had 2 sets of Brigestone duler REVO's on my old truck and loved them. Not very noisey, great for the trail riding (mild off roading) i did and really well manared on the road. They get excellent ratings at tirerack also.

    Went from BFG's to the Nitto Terra Grapplers. Not as loud, and I like the ride quality on and off road.

    If I was buying tires based on your criteria (I can't believe some suggested M/T's for you!) - I'd probably get the Bridgestones people have been suggested because you can get them at Costco (which I like to get my tires at, except they no longer carry the BFG A/T in my area). The Nittos mentioned would be good too - they're quieter than the BFG's....

    yes, and go with the certificates you'll be glad you did. I'll be replacing my BFG A/T's when they die in about 60k, and putting on the BFG KM2's

    I drive an 08 4x4 Rugged Trail. I just bought General Grabber AT2's and I really like them. They seem to stop just as good if not better than the stock Rugged Trails and are significantly quieter. (could be placebo, but I am fine with that)
