    Well after 55,000 miles i finally got rid of the stock dunlops! Got these 265/75R16 Hankooks now and i love them. Made the truck ride so much better i couldn't believe it. I will post some better pics when the sun comes out.

    My coworker is at 65,000 miles on his stock Dunlops, he's replacing them soon though. My stock Bridgestone's only lasted 25,000:eek:

    My Dunslops lasted 8K miles until I replaced them. They still take up space in my garage for some unknown reason. Worst tires I've ever had on a vehicle.

    I have about 26k on the stock tires. It's taking me every piece of strength in my body to hold off until I really need tires. I'm just trying to stall so I can save up for a lift along with new tires. I think I'm going with the Good Year "Silent Armors"..

    My friend had 91,000 thousand miles on his stock dumlops! I mean you could see the steel belts sticking out of the tire. He got stuck in his yard even with four wheel drive. He got some ATM's for his truck too and loves them.

    Another pic. I really like the way these tires look and for $106 a piece at discount tires its a hard deal to beat.

    Can anyone offer their opinion on how well they perform off road? I'd preferably like to hear about mud and sand since that's all I have to choose from where I'm at.

    Excellent excellent tire! I had bought them for my dodge ram in 285/70's back when they first came out. Excellent treadware lasted 65K miles and still had a bit left! Tought tire too mine were 10ply load tange E. Though I definitely would not recommend a load range E tire on the tacoma way too stiff and heavy duty for anything the taco could do.

    Offroad they do quite well in sand,ice,snow...but not so hot in mud
    They are virtually silent on the highway too.
    Great choice man.
