    I'm new to the 2nd gens Tacoma's , I recently purchased a 2007 DCLB base. I'm doing the Billy's at the 4 corners,front set at 1.75, adding 3 leaf progressive in rear,also picked up some trd wheels to replace the steel stockers, I'm in the market for tires , since you guys come from God's country like me, I would like your opinions on tires, I do go off road, but mostly muddy,rudded gravel roads where I hunt. I do travel to the midwest to hunt also, so I also need a good traveling tire .I looked at The Cooper AT3s ,like them, could I get any other ideas ,Thanks

    I love the nitto Terra grappler. they ride good on the road(i have load range E) do good in rain, dirt, gravel, snow(1” to even 8” of snow) I have almost 10k on them and not much wear at all.. I have on road and off road driving with them. They are pretty good in mud. now when you start getting in deep (8 or 10”+) of mud just use more skinny peddle.
    back in jan i did a 650 or so mile trip with them pretty much all highway. and had stuff in the bed both on the way and way back. I was kinda surprised at how well they rode on a long trip.

    I've had BFG ATs on my Fords for years, and you can't beat them for an all around tire. Great off road, reasonably quiet on road, & I got 60-80k miles out of each set. If I still did the offroad thing, this would be my tire.
