    Hello all, first post for me, so here goes.
    I have an '05 tacoma double cab with 31k miles, and the original BFG tires need to be replaced before winter comes.

    I haul a 5x8 enclosed trailer about 2,000 miles per year maybe. I go about 15 miles each way to work, and live in the northeast.

    I am looking for something that is good in the snow, but yet gives a good ride, and can haul my trailer (which isn't real heavy).

    I was looking at these: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/CompareTires.jsp?removeIndex=67TR6LA

    Hopefully the link works, and I have selected the correct tire. I had no idea what tmps was before today, and I don't have the button under my steering wheel, and I do not have metal valve stems.

    I am hoping to get at leastt 40k out of my next set of tires.

    Thanks in advance!

    05's have no TPMS:)

    If your looking through A/T tires, and want good winter traction as well, some A/Ts now have the RMA 'snowflake' symbol.

    40,000 mi on A/T's is gonna be a tough to reach.

    I have the old Revos, like the tire a lot. 24,000 miles and at least 1/2 the tread left. Buy the LT version instead of the passenger tire rated version if you get the Revos. I believe they are a little bit heavier but have not noticed a change in my gas mileage. I also have ran the BF Goodrich KO's on many vehicles and currently have them on my 2003 Jeep Wrangler they work great as well and I have always liked the looks.

    I have used BFG Rugged Trail T/A's for years. They last long time, load range E, excellent off road reliability, snow worthy. Best of all, they are quiet on interstate pavement. This is my vote.
