    Anyone got some info on nice taco tires to get me some size #1, #2 get around in snow, and occasionally sand down the cape in the summer, #3 doesnt eat away gas haha, #4 with stand a good amount of highway miles. I got a 2009 DBL Cab 4x4 off road, no lifts.

    my number one now is the BF goodrich All terrain KO

    Suggestions, ideas, or even selling some reasonably new tires would be great.

    The best I ever had was Wild Country XTX Sport. I got 65k on them. They had about 16/32s of tread to begin with. The tread pattern looks a lot better than any other I have seen. They ride quiet and smooth.

    They were 31x10.50 r15s. I only run that size on stock. I hate the 225s. So small with less tread depth.

    Oh you have a second gen. So if yours has an optional size (maybe high flotation) that size would be the way to go.

    Go if your going to do snow/ice as well as sand go with the Dura-tracs, then I would say BFG A/T's. Both are good for a DD tire, and will handle both jsut fine, but the DUra-tracs will be better for snow/ice. We are talking roadway snow, not deep offroading snow.

    GO with either a 265/70-16 or a 265/75-16. Both will fit on a stock vehicle with little to no rubbing.

    This ^^. I've run BFG A/T KOs for years, and remain very happy with their performance and durability. Based on more recent buzz about Duratracs, however, I will likely give them a shot when my current tires are spent.

    Iam very happy with my General grabber at2 they are awesome in the snow I use my Tacoma with a plow they have excellent bite and are wearing very well for being a soft compounded tire. At2's look similar to the Bf goodrich all terrain but my BF's did not bite as well and wore very quickly. Price was very reasonable. I would check em out

    Things to look for are tread depth, treadwear rating and the design of the tread as well as the weight. I used to have the XTX Sports on my truck. They were wonderful on the highway. They totally killed during Snowmageddon of winter 2008. They are smooth, and really quiet for being an all terrain.

    Since I am in school, I wanted to upgrade to a highway tire so I went with another type.

    General Grabber AT2's Very deep tread and have the snow rating symbol for severe weather driving not many tires meet that spec. Telling ya check em out. They bite in snow like nothing else. I never thought alot about General till I had these tires.
