    Most of my driving is highway and Sand (not too much mud, rock, or mountain). Looking for a quiet tire on the highway, excellent rain/snow and good sand performance.

    It came with the BFG Rugged Trails P265-70-16 but I am not confident with their wet/snow performance. I reviewd a lot of posts here and received feedback.

    I am considering:
    Good Year Silent Armors (The Dura Tracks do not come in my size :mad:)
    BFG AT KO
    Bridgstone Revo

    Thanks for your feedback!

    I just put a set of Yokohama Geolander ATS's on mine. Pretty aggressive AT tread but still very well mannered on the streets.

    Quiet solid truck tire that was great in sand, on my last Tacoma: Toyo Open Country AT & Cooper Discoverer ATR.

    Look into Hankook DynoPro AT, very popular here... and I am considering them if I can't get the General Grabbers.

    NO... it is 1" taller, and fits with no rub. I do not like BFG AT/TA personally but I have friends (and my wife) who all do like them. I just have seen way too many sidewall failures with them. I have had many tires the past 1/4 million miles on 3 Tacomas... and the only tire failures have been on BFGs (Rugged Trails) and a Pep Boys Dakota once (I put a sharp rock right through the tire driving fast to Gonzaga Bay).

    Toyo MT or BFG KM2 - if you're looking for an aggressive mud terrain

    BFG AT or Nitto Terra Grappler - if you're looking for a good all terrain

    I'm not too impressed with my BFG A/T. I have owned them for a year now and they have gotten two rock punctures and I don't even mud or rock crawl. It's just a highway truck. I will be replacing my BFGs with a Goodyear product. Either Duratracs or Wrangler Authority.

    Most tires that size will fit fine. The Duratracs run a little beefier and may rub the front mud flaps at times, mine did so I just removed them.

    I went up to 75's in the DuraTrac's and there was minor rubbing on the mudflap and wheel well but with some minor trimming there's wasn't much issue, unless you are offroad so there was a little rubbing on the frame, got a 2" Lift from Readylift and the problem is all gone! and the truck looks soo much better and with the Readylift the Ride is the same as Stock.
