    Where’d you pick up the pro grille from? How well did it fit in, and did they sell the TSS garnish or did you have to get it elsewhere?

    I picked it up from Toyota Pro Shop. It's not OEM but it's really good quality and it fit perfectly. They also sell the version with the TSS garnish included. Currently going for $189 but keep an eye out, they have sales all the time where you can probably pick it up with an additional 10% off or something.

    Anyone have any thoughts on running 265/75r16s on their 2.7L's? Any regrets? Finger is ready to pull the trigger on a set of Falken AT3W's. I expect a drop in MPGs and acceleration of course, I didn't buy the thing to win any races.

    Apologies if this has come up earlier in this thread.

    I just picked up some Toyo Open Country AT3s in that size. I have an SR5 but still a 4banger. I have NO RAGRETS and only wish I’d done it sooner. Highway noise is not noticeable, capability is marginal, confidence is 10x, looks are improved, gas mileage is indistinguishable

    I went from stock steelies and 245s on my 20 sr 4x4 4cyl. It was early in the game (about 1500 miles). I was averaging about 23-24 mpg all stock minus the air dam. I made the jump to scs f5, 265/75/16 atw3 wildpeak 116t. The biggest thing to consider is rotational weight. I go off pavement occasionally but nothing your average stock truck couldn't handle and I'm not towing stuff, so I didn't need e load tires. I basically setup my wheels and tires to weigh close to the same as my stock setup. 44lbs per tire 18 lbs per wheel. Adding interior nick nacks, fog lights bed lights, bed mat, low profile mud flaps and a few other functional mods and I'm running 21-23 mpg on the regular.

    The 4cyl is a turd anyway, but it's no worse or better than stock with the bigger tires. I played with tire pressure for a couple months to get a good balance between a nice ride and good mpg. Initially the tire shop put them at 40 psi. Ride was harsh mpg was good. 29 psi was bouncy and splashy mpg was terrible. I settled on 36-37 up front. 34-35 in the back.

    Not sure if the negative offset is the reason, but after swapping out the 245s the truck felt better especially cornering .

    I guess I should mention I’m coming from Goodyear Wranglers already in a 265. I swapped out my 245s about 2 years ago. Still didn’t notice much of a difference back then but 2k2 is more thorough

    Appreciate the detailed response. I plan on keeping the current wheels on it. How are your Wildpeaks wearing, also any issues with balancing them?

    Adding to this. Road noise on these tires is negligible-- they are quiet, especially for an aggressive AT. I've had plenty of different tires (KO2, duratrac, geloander) and these have road tire mannerisms. They are good in the wet stuff, no experience in the snow yet. Time will tell. All the AT tires I've had were loud, slippery, and rough at 40k. So after 8k miles I have no good long term review of these wildpeak tires. One thing to note -- A LOT of ppl have issues getting these things balanced. I got mine, got it up to 50 and had a bad steering wheel wobble. The shop made it right and I'm good, but dont be surprised if they cant get these balanced. Read up on it.

    Wearing seems normal, but I rotate every 5k. Balancing.. well I was worried when I got them mounted and had a nasty steering wheel shimmy. Took it right back and they did a dual plane balance on all 4 wheels. That fixed me up, but yes. I was regretting getting them at first thinking "that balancing issue wont happen to me ". Seems to be a common problem with the SL tires. E load does better cuz they're 10 lbs heavier20201018_165323.jpg

    Yeah I keep reading about the balance issues people are having. I love the look of the tires, but hearing all the issues has made me hesitant.

    Also that's one sharp looking Taco man!

    Thanks.

    Good research on your part. I was in the same boat man. I just said theres no way all these ppl are having all these issues, it couldn't possibly happen to me. Well -- it did, but not like some people who cant get it right. I mean going from a 245 road tire to a 265 aggressive AT will obviously give you a bit more steering feedback, but I had a BAD shimmy. That was the oh shit moment. It was between 50 and 60. I took it to a reputable shop in town and they apologized for the issue and made it right. They only charged me $40 for the job due to the inconvenience. So that helped. It was in my head for 1500 miles or so that it wasn't 100%, so keep in mind that the road tires just feel different than the ATs and theres a certain amount of steering wheel feedback that will be felt. Bottom line is my truck tracks straight, drives smooth, and handles well. Your reservations are warranted, but at least you know going in. Time to find a good shop. I went to an offroad place that also does big rig tires.
