    Folks,

    My Tacoma came with 18" wheels and Bridgestone Dueler H/T D840s. So far I like the tires and their size. However, I've noted that 16" and 17" wheels are the more popular. I don't have any plans on putting a lift on the truck, but would like to invest in some good wheels and matching tires in the future. I so like what SCS Performance offers ("coming soon") and the XD Series Revolvers.

    My typical use for the truck will be light off road, heavy winter snow and a combination of city and highway driving. So what do you all recommend in a tire and size to support a 16" or 17" wheel?

    For your needs, I would recommend either Goodyear Wrangler Durtracs OR BFGoodrich All Terrian T/A KO's in a 265/75R16 or a 265/70R17. If you plan on a lift, or different wheel backspacing and or width, you can fit a larger size with little to no trimming.

    Cheers, and good luck. :)
