    I have seen a set on a first gen taco, looked like 31x10.5s. I really like the look of them and I thought about buying a set when my tires wear out. Good reviews on their website and I also see them on alot of the full sized trucks with big wheels. I have run their sport tires on other vehicles and they are a good quality tire co. IMO.

    I have the Kumho Road Venture SAT KL61s and absolutely love them. The difference between what I had and them was night and day, especially in the snow.

    here are some pics. http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/5-lug/120284-official-5-lug-picture-thread-6.html#post2671796

    i plan on getting better ones soon, but after spending two days laying the driveway putting on my lift cellphone pictures were all i was willing to do.

    the KL61s are surprisingly quiet for an AT tire. my bosses yokohamas are louder on his A4...

    I haven't had any trouble out of these tires in the rain. They seem to grab the road well.

    Thank you and Nope [​IMG] lol.

    Just purchased a set of 265/75 R16 Kumho Road Venture's KL78, so far I'm happy with them. I put them on the highway and they handled great, I switched over from BFG Rugged Trails and I can definitely tell the the difference. Only complaint I have the minor rubbing on sharp turns, I'm hoping once I install the 5100's and Eibach coils the rubbing stops

    here's a shot of one of the tires, I'll get better pics tomorrow in the daylight
