    Hello everyone! I'm excited to be a part of the forum. I'm looking for suggestions on the best offroad tires for my 2019 Tacoma TRD Offroad. I'm looking for something with great mud capability. Stock tires are 265/70R16. Also, what's the largest you would throw on without any rub? Thanks

    I use cooper STT pro. I made the switch after I got out of bfg fanboy rehab. I’ll never look back

    Pretty much any mud tire will work just fine

    Lots of choices and you’ll get quite a few suggestions from the tire gurus here. But, expect to take a sizable hit to your MPG with more aggressive and deeper tread.

    Skinny might not be the best suggestion if he expects to hit deep mud. From my understanding, for mud and snow, you want surface area... unless you think its shallow enough to hit hard pan below.

    True, however the widest he can go while stock is 265 so only 10mm narrower is worth it to gain almost 2" in height.

    This is true. What you pay for in the more expensive off road tires is going to be pavement manners (how long they last, how well they balance, road noise, etc). If you don't care about on road performance, only off road, just about any knobby off road tire will do just fine.

    Thanks everyone for some insight.the truck will mostly be used for camping and hunting in western Colorado. I'll put less than 10,000 miles a year on it. I have found that the skinnier tire does better Offroad if there's a decent wheelbase. Thanks again.

    I've had several brands, including BFGKM2's (on a Dodge truck I owned) At the present time, I'm 110% sold on Cooper STT PRO's. I'm running 285/75r16's now, but would not be opposed to 265/75r16's. Just not THAT much difference in size to effect off road capabilities in a serious way. STT PRO's wear good, balance well, ride great for a mud tire, reasonably quiet for a mud tire, and do incredible in the mud....Good street manners.

    I'm on my second set. There will be a 3rd set some day.

    That’s my plan for my next set. I went with cooper mtp since they’re light, but they’re light because they don’t have the same beefy sidewall as the pro. I can tell too, because my sidewalls are all sliced to Hell.

    There's 10 times as much rock here as there is mud. STT PRO's work equally well in rock as they do in mud. Not one cut or chunked tread so far. Best all around performer I've found to this point.

    If I remember I’ll have to snap some pics later. It’s pretty bad. I just noticed it yesterday while airing down. $270 a tire for 35” pros and I need 5 :bananadead:

    I'm still on 285/75R16's, but will be going to 35's next. And yes.....5 of 'em. I do a 5 tire rotation. Get's another 20% added to wear total thatta way.

    Same here, which is why I bought a matching spare wheel. No sense in letting a spare just sit there dry rotting away.
