    Replaced the Dueler H/T's on my 09 Double Cab TRD Sport today, went with 265/70R17 Yokohama Geolander AT-S. Love the appearance, fills out the wheelwells and look beefy. Happy so far with them, ride smooth and handle well, maybe a bit louder on the highway. Ripped around snow covered side streets in 4WD just to check them out, make a world of difference in the slick stuff!

    Here are some crappy blackberry pics...

    $250 cheaper a set than the Michelin ATX LT2's I had on my 07, figured I'd give them a try, initial impression is very favorable.

    Was undecided about the white letters, had them out on my '07, decided to go black wall on the new truck, thought it looked better with that color.

    Great looking tire. I also changed out the stock Dunlops on my new TRD Sport to 265-70-17. I wanted the Geolander ATS but no one had in stock locally and i had to return the OEM tires back to the dealer before they had 500 miles on them so i could get my $600 back. So i had to settle for the way expensive Goodyear Fortera, which seem good but almost double the price. I'll probably go with Geo's when these GY's wear out. Keep us posted on your satisfaction with them.

    I really like the tread pattern and the fat profile, more meat on the ground!

    It will be interesting to see how long they last? Looks like those are only good for 40-50k? Someone else on here said he got 110,000 miles on the Michelins. I had a set with 45,000 mile on the Michelins with about half tread before I sold the truck. Not to knock the Yoko's but the Michelins are a great tire.

    I read a lot of great reviews on the Yoko's lasting 50k or more. I'm sure they don't compare to the Michelin's but costed for me at least, half as much. Found them on Amazon for $140 each got Discount Tire Direct to beat them, only by a dollar but felt better buying from them anyway. So far mine ride just as smooth and quiet as the stock Dunlops did, only difference being in the turning and cornering which I like better.
