    i got them for a steal and just in time too. i paid $520 out the door and he got me $20 off an alignment at another tire shop. It was all just in time for my trip to San Antonio for my job this coming up week, and the trip were making to Kansas on the 23rd. There is a big difference in the ride it is alot stiffer then the bfg rt's but i like it anyhow

    I almost went with those kumho's but I found a set of BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO's for 459, out the door, no alignment though and I had to put them on myself. I kept the same size 235/75/15 I kind of wish I went with a little bigger size tire, I just didn't know how much bigger I could go.

    I have a brand new(May 2009) set of 235/75/15 Kumho KR21's on mine right now since I do all road/city driving here in FL. I had these tires on my SAAB a couple years ago, and they were better in the snow than my snow tires. Kick ass in rain. Handling is frickin awesome. So I am looking at buying a set of KL78's for the Taco now. If the 78's are as good as the 21's I know it won't be a bad decision. And they come in 31/10.5/15... Kumho's are great.

    Or it's these http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires..._Qty=4&i1_Qty=4&autoModel=Tacoma+4wd+Xtra+Cab

    Here are the Kumho's. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires...5KL78OWL6&vehicleSearch=true&fromCompare1=yes

    The grabbers have a better rating than the Kumho's. Look a bit heavier duty.

    you guys should check out discounttiredirect.com they have pretty much all the same tires, and they are probably cheaper. not to mention free shipping and replacement certificates if they happen to get a bulging sidewall or other defects. we bought some one time for a mazda6 and ran over something and it blew out. called them up and asked about the repalcement certs and they just asked what happened and said it blew out while driving down the highway and they were still really new so they sent us another one without anymore questions
