    I just installed XD Rockstar 775 18" black rims w/ 285/60r18 nitto dune grappler tires and a 2& 1/2" front leveling kit on my 09 taco. It looks great, but I have noticed the ride is more bumpy and I have less control on the road. I think this set up is good for off road, but I drive on the highway most of the time. I was thinking of changing out my dune grapplers for some H/T tires...Any Advice?

    The more agressive tires always make the ride a bit more squirrely and bumpy at first but pretty soon they should wear in and be more street friendly; they will never be as smooth as highway tires. Make sure to get them balanced and have an alignment done to get the best ride and tire-life.

    If you really don't need that aggressive of a tire, you will benefit your ride quality and mpg by going to a more highway oriented tire.
