    So I want to bolster the appearance of my new TRD Sport DC in Pyrite Mica. I don't want to put any type of lift on the vehicle so I am pretty much stuck on P265/70 R17s. I won't be doing any off-roading but I do like the aesthetic appeal that comes along with some of the more aggressive All Terrain tires. So which ones do I pick? My head is spinning looking at BFG ATs, Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac, Nitto Terra Grapplers, and Bridgestone Dueler AT, etc. So which ones do I buy?

    If all you're concerned with are looks and not function, then really only you can decide what you think looks the best. My advice is to keep an eye out for other trucks that are similar to yours (cab, color, no lift, stock rims, etc.) and wait for the tires that strike your fancy. When you see them, you'll know those are the ones you want.

    I'm in a similar boat, but I'm going to wait a while before I put tires/rims on my rig. In the meantime, I'm keeping an eye out for what I think looks good, making mental notes of things I like on other trucks, and building a picture in my head of what I want my truck to look like. It just takes time.

    Good luck! :)

    I love my BFG A/Ts.. Would buy them again in a heartbeat. Only change I'd make is go with 33"s... Maybe go with an M/T next time just because of all the damn mud here.
