    After a week and a couple hundred miles on my 255/85/16 ST MAXXs I agree with this.....no noticeable loss of power for acceleration (keep in mind I've got a 6MT) but there is a noticeable loss in breaking power.....takes more push on the pedal to slow the truck. Not a deal breaker, but noticeable. Makes sense, these tires are 15# heavier than my last set.

    I really want to go this route, what are you guys paying per tire and mounting if mail order?

    I’m leaning towards the bfg KM3 and on tire rack they’re $242 each.

    My ST Maxx's were $204 each on Amazon back in January.

    I then paid $130 to mount and balance all 5 tires.

    I got the Mastercraft Courser CXT on Amazon for $167 per tire. Paid $18 per tire for mount/balance/disposal.

    That seems awfully cheap to mount & balance.

    Which state?

    I would have thought places would gouge you to m/b tires they didn’t sell.

    Cool.
    Thanks for all the info!

    I can confirm 255/80/17 st maxx on 4 runner pro wheels rubs on the bottom of the fender flare on stock suspension TRDOR, nothing terrible, little Dremel time fixed it right up. Haven't hit cab mount and have cycled suspension well.

    They combine cheap with a known name. Nobody runs Mastercraft Coursers because they've never heard of them, but Cooper is a well known name.
