    Awesome job on the thread,

    Just bought a 2013 Tacoma and want to upgrade from the stock tires. Winter is upon us so I would be looking for something good in snow, moderate off road, but will mainly be driven highway as this is my main mode of transport for work. Come the weekend I am heading for the logging access roads though; don't worry I have a radio). Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey guys I am about to buy new tires and I was wanting some suggestions. I have a gen 1 with only 2 wheel drive. I drive on roads mostly so something that will keep my mpg decent but I need them to pull a 16 ft duck boat off wet steep boat ramps. I also go off road on occasion. I am more concerned about pulling the boat out than mpg but if there is a good combo I would like to know.

    Thanks.

    What does anyone think about the looks and gas mileage of the bfgoodrich allterrain ko in 30/9.50R 15 or 31/10.50R 15 on 1998 tacoma 4x4 SR5 V6, getting ready to buy and not sure which size to go to I want the looks but don't want to lose my mileage I get with these 235 75R 15s.

    Hey guys, so I need new tires on my 04 Tacoma PreRunner and always get the B/F Goodrich Rugged Trails. However, the guy at Discount told me that the Long Trail would last longer since I only do city/hwy driving and no off-roading.

    Anybody get the Long Trails?

    I have the Hankook Dynapro,s . They are not the greatest tire in the snow but judging by your profile location , that shouldnt matter much to you . They are great in the summer

    Thinking about the General Grabber AT2s. Right now I'm all on road, but if I was to venture off road, will the P version of the AT2s do the trick? It wouldn't be anything crazy. I think load range E LT version may be a little over kill. I've been searching all over for info. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    The only reason to get LT rated tires for our trucks is if you want more sidewall durability for serious offroading.

    Blue balls, full stereo rewire and upgrade, Bullbar custom painted grill roof rails supercharger and trd intake and exhaust bronze rims new tires. Custom headlights with bi-xenon and projectors
    So being new hear i need help between 4 Tire names. 1) Conti cross contacts 2) General grabber at2 3) Hankook dynapro 4) Falken rocky mountain ats 5) Cooper discoverer a/t3. And any recommendations other then what I came up with. There price range is between $160-$175. Im inclined to stay in that price range unless I undoubtedly find a better tire hands down. 265/65/17 is my size. So if you know anything other than what I've read on retail websites please respond or pm me.

    I've narrowed down my search for tires to these BFG Rugged Terrains for the Hankook DynaPros. The BFG's are hwy all-season and the kooks are on/off road AT. If you've owned either one, can you share/educate with me your experience? Since BFGs are all-hwy, does that mean they get better MPG? I looked at the specs and they weight about the same. Any thoughts/input is appreciated
