    I've got it down to Goodyear MT/R Kevlars and Hankook MT's. I like both and have heard great reviews about both. Cost wise the kooks are about $200 cheaper for 5. Size is 285/75/16.

    I have a friend that's had his kooks on his lifted Tacoma for close to 50k miles and they still look good. But I have also seen quite a few people with the kevlars and they look good but I don't know about tread life.

    I love my hankooks. I have the 265's right now but since the lift I'm contemplating 285 dynapros. They are amazing in the sand and I love them while in rear wheel drive in the snow. Really cant complain. The cheaper price is just a bonus.

    I'd run either but if theres that much of a cost difference, hands down the dynapros.

    Where did you find 5 Hankooks for $1k? I think they will be my next tire.

    discount tire direct ebay. they arent on there right now, i guess the listing ran out and havent re-posted.

    edit: they have 7% off sales (the mtr price included $80 rebate and the 7% off) usually every 4 days or every other week

    I would wait for 4th of July weekend tho. I'm sure there will be some good deals. That's what I'm waiting for.

    3" lift EIBACH coils w/ 5100's front, OME/ Dakar leaf springs w/ toytec adjustable shackles at 1.5" and 5125's out back. 33x10.5x15 KM2's Relentless DIY steel bumper.
    I have stock size Hankooks ATM's. it's a very good tire and would recommend them to anyone. I'm only guessing that the MT would be as good? I've had good luck with dynapro, so that's my vote.

    I put my lift on about a month ago and when I get the $ I'm gonna go up in size. My choices are either dynapro hankook MT or the BFG KM2's. if you end up getting the Hankooks, post back on here and let us know how you like them!
