    Anyone know if Goodyear stopped making the MT/Rs with white lettering? Lookin to get some new tires and I can't decide if I want Duratracs again or MT/Rs.

    I spend some time off road (trail/sand), but I also drive 30 miles on the highway each day. Am I making a mistake looking at the Goodyear/Kelly's 'Fierce Attitude M/T' for my new Tacoma. I don't mind the noise as long I just don't want the GM to increase too much. I'm really looking for a tire that performs well in all situations and looks good too.

    You won't regret these tires. I've ran mine for a couple years and I love em. Mud, snow, major rain and street they perform excellent. Drive straight and true, wear really really good and are actually pretty quiet in my book.

    Excellent. I'm new to the site so maybe this is simple and I just need to do the research, but I'm looking for the best place to purchase tire and wheel package. Do you have any suggestions or point me in the right direction? I'm not looking to modify anything right away, just bolt and go.

    What I did was:
    1. find my locals in my area that carried this tire.
    2. Got quotes from all of them (Including Walmart...they carry these believe it or not)
    3. After getting lowest price (Walmart won that one) I called America's Tire and gave them Wally World price and they beat it by ...If I remember correctly...10%. I got my 35" tires for under a grand!!!!

    They have an amazing wheel collection that you can look thru and they will make a great price on those too.

    That's a tough call because of the resolution of the photo.
    Maybe a Firestone Destination MT?

    Edit: I take that back, as best as I can tell thru Google-fu it's a Nitto Trail Grappler MT.

    Nah, I don't think so. I have Duratracs and they look like this:

    Totally different sidewall pattern. Plus the tires in that picture don't have alternating shoulder lugs like the Duratracs do.

    thanks everyone. They are in fact Nitto Trail Grapplers. Wasn't sure if the guy was going to message me back or not. I think Im going to get trail grapplers or the Toyo Open Country MT.

    Don't judge me on this, but idk what KO's are. I'm new to the site , and it's jargon.

    That was the first set I had. Didn't go with them the second time around because the grabber were $500 cheaper than the KO's. They both feel about the same though.
