    i know the brakes pretty much suck on 2nd gen. tacomas. but are there any other disadvantages of running a heavy tire (61 lbs). im looking to run an m/t. the bfg m/t's weigh 50 lbs vs the firestone m/t's weighing 61 lbs. thanx for all your expert advice

    Just for the record, i dont have a problem with the brakes on the Taco. I've stopped faster in cars but for a truck this size i'm pretty happy with them. Although i probabaly will put performance pads and disks on when its time to change them out. you can never stop too fast (unless you hit a wall....)

    Go to Tirerack.com and then when you select what tire you want to check out, click on "Specs" and they list every possible weight and dimension for every size that particular tire comes in.
