    Hello everyone,
    I am new here on this forum but, I have owned my current Tacoma for about 12 years. It is a 1996 Tacoma X-tra cab, 4WD, 5spd, 2.7L 4cyl, 110K miles. The truck is stock with the exception of Rancho shocks and BFG 30x9.5x15 AT.
    This truck has seen very little use over the past few years but, I am going to start using it as a daily driver and I would like some advice. I need to get new tires and while I am at it , install new shocks. I am interested in a tires that has more of a street tread pattern(this truck never goes offroading) and shocks that would provide a good ride during highway use. Any advice, tips, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Mike

    Mike-For tires -Tirerack.com will give you great ratings on all sorts of different tires. See what applies to you and away you go. I chose my Bridgestone Dueler revo 2's that way. Helped a lot. Shocks on the other hand- can't help you there. mind you the internet is full of sites that rate everything. Wouldn't be hard to find one on shocks.

    bilstein shocks, no doubt the best bang for your buck.

    Edit: bilstein shocks, no doubt the bang for MY buck. They may or not be for you. Ive tried a few out and so far they are the best for ME. just my 02 cents.
