    I'm looking to get some new tires before winter. I'm looking for all terrains with the severe service or mountain snowflake emblem. So far all I have found are:

    1) Goodyear Duratrac
    2) BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO
    3) Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor
    4) General Grabber AT2

    Anything else I should consider in size 235/85-16 or 265/75-16?

    All I can speak of are the Grabber AT2's...:cool:

    I have had them a year now and they are wearing like iron...PLUS they had miles on them from another TW owner...;)

    I live in NH and they made ALL of last winters SNOW look easy....With my job I can be out during or just after a storm for sno-clean-up /removal and these were flawless..plus "played a lil in the snow"..cleaned out just fine :thumbsup:

    I do have the 265/75/16's and mine are LT's...some say they are "overkill" ratings wise for a Tacoma BUT I never worry about loading the Taco down with 3/8" stone,loam or worn cutting edges ( $$$$ :D ) so they work fine for me...
