    Got a 2018 MGM DCSB Limited. I do little to no off-roading. Mostly small town driving, some highway. The Michelins that came with my 18" rims are totally fine. But fine is not good enough. This is what I want (no lift):
    - 17" TRD Gunmetal rims (4Runner?)
    - More aggressive looking, but still comfortable road-driving tire. I assume the size will be 265/70/17 to be able to keep the mud flaps without the lift. Also prefer good handling during winter. Less worried about actual off-road or mud performance. From my TW research, the common contenders seem to be the Falken Wildpeak At3W, BFG KO2, Nitto Grappler, or Toyo AT2. Of these, which ones would fit my purposes the best? Any other ones I should look into?

    Thanks in advance.

    I would highly recommend not getting M/Ts if snow is a concern. M/T tires typically have less siping which is needed in snow and rain.

    People are also pretty down on the KO2s in the rain and snow. I personally think you should consider Goodyear Duratracs along with your others. Especially if you can get SL or C Load.

    Mine have been spectacular in every thing you're concerned about, have excellent road manners, and after 5k miles still have 16/32nds of their tread which is what they started with. Easily a 50k to 60k mile tire.
