    I know you guys are sick of tire questions and I am sick of looking at them:(. My Ivans should arrive tommorrow I am hung up on Nittos,BFG's,General Grabbers or some Mickey Thompson Atz or radial. I will do very little if any off-roading but I want an aggresive looking tire with good road characteristics, is this possible? Does the weight of the BFG's truly affect mpg. The truck is not a daily driver but will see it fair share of road trips. UGGGHHHH :confused:!! Need some input!! Price doesnt really matter, low road noise and good tread wear do. I believe I am looking for the IMPOSSIBLE!! Thanks!!

    I'm looking at the Nittos too, just hard me to find them here. General is nice too.
    I think pretty much all A/T are good except, like yokohama, and michelin, not too aggressive enough

    Well I know the really popular ones for Tacoma owners, at least on this website, is the Nitto Terra Grapplers. Never heard of one complaint from any of the owners! I roll with the Dune Grapplers. More of an aggressive look at least in my opinion. Heard they wear out faster though. Oh well, I dont drive my truck like crazy anyways.:D

    Yeah, I am leaning towards the nittos but not super crazy about the sidewall design. Love the looks of the Mickeys!!
