    I'm trying to decide on which set of tires to get... i am going to start commuting more on the high way but still will do a good amount of off roading. i want something with good mpg and good tread life.. thanks

    i really like the duratracs i have on my truck now and i know the trail grapplers are a different tire with a different purpose in mind, but i have been seriously considering them this go around. it doesn't hurt that they look completely bad ass either. it's a good looking tire imho and the guy's who run them really seem to like them a lot.

    Had tons on the Taco's.... new truck is pretty stock
    2 totally different tires really... If 90% is highway then I say the Coopers. Plus the Trail grapps are meant to mainly be for full sized trucks... most are 'E' load rated and would ride really stiff on a lightweight Tacoma

    The Nitto's do look really sweet, but you are right about full sized trucks. My buddy has them on a Ford platinum.

    Until I see something out of the ordinary about the Coopers, I am pretty much sold on them.

    my tires a 10 ply e load rated but really did not notice the stiffness eveyones talking about here. they feel better than my c load duratracs and stock suspension thats for sure. i also dropped the sway bar though so i'm sure that helped.

    I have the trail grapplers, there great soo far!!! They're really quiet at first, but i have 20,000 miles on them now, and there louder. But they are a mud tire. Pull really well in every situation that i have put them in.

    Coopers!!! They look real nice, whats the price on them? I would also recommend the Duratracs as they basically look like a MT but so far mine perform like an aggressive AT. Good for highway/street and offroad. If the Coopers are a good price I might get some
