    Man, I'm loving my Duratracs! They totally changed the appearance of my truck! Thanks to everyone on Tacoma World who recommended them.

    I went with 265-70-17. I did have some rubbing on the right side when I was fully locked. So, I put on a set of 5100's at 1.75 and that took care of it.

    Dude, its not the tires - is the color of the truck! :D
    Looking at these as well, its either the BFG AT's or the Dura Tracs. I deal with alot of sand if I go off road and feel the bfg's might be a better option for me. But those dura tracs look beefier, and seem to be a good all around tire, maybe a little more road noise but most guys feel its not that bad. What do you think thus far?

    265-70-17 Goodyear Duratracs. Pro Comp 17x8 8089's. Bilstein 5100's front and rear (front set to 1.75). 1/4 inch spacer--driver side. TSB rear leaf springs. WeatherTech floor liners. EGR in-channel vent visors. RDS tool box.
    The wheels are 17x8 with 4.5 back spacing. Put the billies on front and rear and have the TSB springs. As for the Duratracs and road noise, they do whine a little, but I like it--sounds like a truck! Real trucks don't have car tires on 'em.

    Trail Grapplers were definitely my second choice after the Duratracs. I may try a set of those next after the Duratracs wear out.
