    I will be putting a 3 1/2 inch lift on my 97 Toyota Tacoma and will be able to but a 33 inch tire on when I am done just wondering what tires people have use that are good both on the trail and the street and the cheaper the better I have limited money for this

    I have a set of BFG Mud Terrain KM2's on my truck and I love them, they ride fine on the street, I had BFG All Terrain's before, those where awesome too, better on the street and still kick ass off road. However, BFG's are pricey, if you're looking to save money but still get an agressive looking tire, look at Toyo's or even cheaper would be Kumho's.

    I have BFG ATs and love them. I've ONLY ever had aggressive mud terrain tires on all my other Toys since I was 15. (Cooper MTs, Kuhmo MTs, and BFG MTs) I lived on a farm, off-roaded a lot, and always swore I would never put all-terrain tires on my 4x4. Once I got older and more sensible, I decided it was time to put some all-terrains on my truck for better mileage, and I use it as more of a daily driver now. Besides the performance of a MT tire I always just loved the look of it. The only AT tire I have ever liked the "look" of is the BFG AT. It's a great highway tire and still has a nice, aggressive look. It also performs great off-road. I've never had this truck stuck with them.

    I just put the Firestone Destination A/T's on and by all accounts they are the Bomb! I live in Oregon and have had the chance to drive them in the snow, rain, sand, and mud. They preformed flawlessley! And they were 200.00 cheaper than the KO's!

    Yeah BFG KO price is out of control!
    Even my Goodyear Wrangler SA's are crazy expensive now. I bought them for $181/each in the summer, had to replace one this week...$265!

    I couldn't be happier with my BFG A/Ts. They are great both on and off road and look badass. Without a doubt the best money I have spent on my truck.
