    So I just complete the 5100 eibach suspension upgrade and now my little tires look like prius tires on a Tacoma.

    I am going to keep the stock wheels but will need some tires.

    Here is kinda what I am looking for: Good dry pavement, I live in SoCal so that should say something, I will do some light offroad in Mexico but 90% of the time will be on the freeway and regular roads. I would also like them to last a while as money is tight.

    I also need some size recommendations as I would like my 25 mpg to stay pretty close to that so the tire cannot be too heavy.

    First month of ownership... This month I'm removing front air dam, and also Rhino lining the bed.
    I think some 265/75-R16 BFG KO tires would look really good on your truck.

    I've got them on mine with a 2.5" OME lift and they look great! Ride on pavement is smooth. Great handling on and off road. Pretty heavy tire so get one in the lowest load range to keep the weight down. Also, the 265/75-R16 size fits the stock rims really well. Can still get tire chains on without any problem and do without any rubbing or need for wheel offsets.

    I spent a lot of time researching different tires when I got mine. Like you I do about 90% of my driving on pavement and it's my daily driver. Also, like you I like to get a little crazy now and then.. and especially on dirt roads.

    This tire has exceeded my expectations. A well designed/engineered tire with a solid reputation. Only downside is that they'll cost you some cash $$$

    I spent just under $1000 for 5 of them installed.

    Did you ever consider the REVO 2's? What is the weight of the 2 different tires?
