    would it be a bad idea to run mud tires on the back two wheels, (i have a prerunner), and all terrains in the same size up front? ive seen a couple tacomas in person with that set up but never talked with anyone about it. thanks guys!

    I've run more aggressive tires in the back of a 2wd truck before. I would have thought the reason would be obvious... I've run aggressive snows in the back and a good all-season up front. The downfall is tire rotation as mentioned above.

    didnt think about tire rotation, but i was just thinking since the back tires are the only ones spinning, and i dont want to spend a lot on muds, i could just run muds on the back

    just a thought, wanted to see what you guys thought, thanks for the input

    Though the front isn't spinning you would still benefit from having those cause your turning in the mud would benefit

    this is probably true. as I ran a road tire up front and a knobby in back on my dirtbike, when I hit the sand...I have to work it!

    Traction would be affected ie. Braking and steering. Go fast, but can't stop or turn.

    Actually, I tend to run all my 2wd trucks with traction tires on the back with either all season or all terrains on the front...

    Currently, I have on the 62 Dodge Town Wagon 1/2 ton, "Prospector" rib tires on the front and Cooper Discover ST on the back, the 68 Dodge Uteline, Cooper AST all season on the front and MudStar MT on the back, and the 07 Ram 1500 I just traded on the '11 Taco, Cooper ATR on the front and the Cooper ST on the back...

    The 08 Jeep Sahara (wife's ride) still is on the original Bridgestone AT on all four, the '11 Taco is still on the POS stock Dunlop, while the 62 M37 Dodge Military Power Wagon has Sure Grip 8 ply bias on all corners.

    I live out in the Cherokee National Forest and we have a good bit of wash board gravel before we ever get to a paved road.

    When I had the 94 Toy pickup, 2wd, I had six ply traction tires on back and all season on the front...
