    Hey

    I'm trying to decide which route im going to take on wheels and need some help. I have an 07 access cab prerunner impulse red. I like the 20" enkei WT4s and 16" moto metals. I drive about 30K mi./yr for work. So I cant run 33's or off road tires. Will 16's look good with highway/all season tires or should I stick with WT4s?Pics would be great if anyone has any.

    Thanks

    I would go with the 16s and Toyo Open Country H/T tires. A lot of our customers get 60,000 miles sometimes more if it's mostly highway driving.

    I've got 20's and toyo open country a/t's. Suppose to get 50,000 miles outta these tires and they are super quiet! Only bad thing i have to say about them is they ride kinda ruff! other than that they are a great option for the enkei wt4's!

    I read many people complaining about the Open Country A/T's rain performance, but the H/T's actually have outstanding traction in the rain. I don't pretend to be the last word in tire knowledge, but I do live, work, and play in the pacific northwest, where it rains 11 months out of the year. I've only had the H/T's installed on my truck for about a week, but already they have impressed me, holding good traction in 12" of powder and packed snow, and performing great in both highway driving in the rain and around town. I attached a few pics so you can see the 2 huge channels, something the A/T's don't really have.

    Edit: sorry for the picture quality, taken with my cameraphone

    There's absolutely no problem with the open country a/t's rain performance. I've had these for two years and no complaints other than they're kinda stiff. But thats to be expected from a 50 series tire.

    Am I right in thinking that I would lose more MPGs with a 265/75/16 A/T or M/T vs a 265/50/20 all season/highway?
