    I am having a hard time finding the right tire for my needs and any help would be much appreciated. The criteria is as follows:

    1. Should be 265/70/R17 so I can fit it on my 08 Prerunner with stock suspension.
    2. Not too expensive (but I understand you gotta pay to play).
    3. Aggressive look but this is only for concrete cruising, I don't take it off road.

    I have seen a lot of forums suggesting Revos, Revo 2's, Duratecs, BFG AT KOs, and so on, but I feel like they may be an overkill. If you all have any input that would be great!

    Thank you.

    Look at the hankook dynapro at. Has all the characteristics you are looking for. Several members have them (including me) with no complaints.

    You gotta pay to play....but why pay if you're not going to play with them??? I don't see the point in buying offroad tires for driving on concrete...but its your truck, your decision.

    The revo 2's are more aggressive looking in real life. they aren't real heavy like the bfg's, they have a 50,000 mile treadwear warranty, they have great wet weather traction, and they get great reviews. I would have to recommend these to you. if your driving mostly on pavement and just want a all terrain just incase you wanna go do some light ofroading then these are the tires for you!

    Michelin LTX MS of you want highway only tires. Not very aggressive looking, but great on road. Revo2 are more aggressive all terrain tire that I am going to replace the Michelins with.

    i'm a huge advocate for the revo 2's. check out their reviews, they have way better ratings than the bfg a/t ko's and seem to last longer. they are cheaper too!
