    i run normal "p-metric" tires on my truck for daily driving.....and have a set of mud tires and wheels for when i go trail riding. my normal tires are good to go for my hunting and fishing spots........not too good for trails and suck where rocks can eat them like candy.

    When I purchase a truck the passenger tires are the first to go.

    Speaking of people who deserve to be shot, the person who decided carpet should be standard equipment in a truck should be second...

    Well point your cross hairs this way. Not everyone drives their Tacoma exclusively to the mall or a boutique!

    A boutique, from the French word for "shop," is a small shopping outlet, especially one that specializes in elite and fashionable items such as clothing and jewelery.

    AKA: a sissy place to do business...:laugh:

    For most situations p-metric tires are sufficient in a small truck like our Tacoma's. Now if you go offroad alot and need the thicker sidewall then definitely get rid of the "maypops"! I run p-metrics on mine because it's my daily driver. It see's is alot of gravel roads with mudholes, but mostly pavement. I get the best fuel economy and ride quality out of the lighter tire. If I wheeled alot then I would do like Will and buy a dedicated set of offroad wheels and tires and throw them on before I went wheeling.

    Hey...I run e rated tires on my "truck". They might be overkill but I like the way the "truck" handles with them. As long as the pressure is adjusted good the truck rides great and very stable in turns...doesn't feel like it's leaning anymore. The extra plys offer more protection from flats on road and off road. I ran a set on my last Yota and never had a flat in the 70,000 miles or so they were on the truck. Are they for everyone...hell no, some people think a truck should ride like a "car".

    Should it be illegal to sell trucks with P series tires, no.
    Should it be illegal to sell trucks that come factory with a hitch and come with P tires, yes. A lot of people think just because they have a hitch, they can tow whatever they want.
    I have 10plys on my truck, and I don't even tow. I didn't buy the truck and expect it to ride like a Cadillac. Even though they do ride fairly nice. It's a truck, if your going after ride quality, buy a car next time.
    IMO I didn't notice that big of a difference in ride going to a 10 ply. However my gas milage did go down alittle.
