    I have a 2006 Tacoma 4X4 with stock suspension, tires and rims. It needs tires and I'm wondering if I can go slightly taller / wider than the P245/75 R16's using the stock aluminum rims. I'm looking for a tread that's good for the road and some wheelin too. Any ideas?

    There are tons of threads on this subject. I would search and see what comes up.

    You can go 265/75/16s... I like the BFG A/Ts.

    You can go to the other stock size of 265/70R16 or, as stated above, go with a slightly taller tire of 265/75R16. Both will fit your wheels and the taller tire "should" clear everything...except maybe your mudflaps if you still have them on. Just beware that some of the tires in that taller size sometimes rub at full turn.

    As far as kinds of tires, you can search and read up on the subject for the next month because there are that many threads. Or you can fill in a little more information to get a more refined response to fit your specific driving circumstances.

    Percentage of highway driving? Drive in the snow? Plowed roads in snow or unplowed? What kind of off-roading? Mud?

    The answers, IMO, make a huge difference. I liked the BFG AT KO when I ran then before, but I just couldn't afford them or the Duratracs this last time around. And since I do a lot of highway driving (and live in snow country), I got the Michelin LTX AT2 to try them out. Don't like the looks per se, but when money is short you go with what works. My off-roading extent is 90 percent forest trails and off the forest roads for firewood cutting, and a little bit of mild true off-roading use (nothing like most of these guys). Just about any AT tire will likely do in my situation. But I would not get an AT tire if your off-roading consists of mud. The BFG AT KO outperforms the AT2 in mud by far...which is saying a lot since they don't do so well in mud either.
