    Alright guys so i am tired of my little 31x10.50s. So i am saving up my money to get some new tires and wheels. I am going to be getting 33x12.50 or even maybe 13.50. But i want an aggressive looking tire that will look mean but also do "well" on the road. Def need it to be able to pull through the mud also. I would love some input on this please. Not going to be getting the tires till around May or so(have to save my money up)

    stock, for now
    the new bfg mud terrains are pretty sick. decent on road

    bfg all terrains would be good, but ive seen them pack quick in sand(not good)

    super swampers are good,but noisy.

    I personally had 32 11.5 15" all terrains on my old 4runner. Did well, and it got me throu everything i threw at her. I was kinda dissapointed i couldnt use my winch..lol

    They were quiet on road also, i had it at 65-70ish and they were smooth as butter, and couldnt really tell any noise difference

    once i have some money saved up, im gonna throw some 31 105 15 bfg all terrains on my tacoma for the winter

    I have a freind that runs BFG Mud-terrains on all of his work trucks and they haven't had any trouble with them. They work in the oilfield so they put a lot of highway miles on them. They also off road through the mud and sand with no problem in their trucks. Plus i think they look pretty kick a**

    I'm running the BFG KM2's and have absolutely no complaints. Yes there is some road noise but what do you expect with lugs that big? I think they handle well in the rain and take me pretty much whereever I want to go - sand, mud, rocks. A friend just picked up some Toyo Open Country tires that look nice and they are suppose to get pretty good mileage out of them as well.
