    I will look them up thanks. I was looking at Nitto grappler g2 but saw that they shake at 70 mph. Also, looking at the cooper adventure AT.

    I second the Michelin Defenders, they also run $70 rebate deals. So shop smart.

    Another vote for Michelin here. I have the Defenders on my 1998 Toyota T100, but I have the Michelin LTX AT2 on my Tacoma.

    The T100 is only 2WD so it got the Defenders, and the AT2’s look a little more aggressive and they fit with the look of my 4x4 Taco.

    They’re both quiet tires, have good performance in inclement weather, and track well. And tread wear is exceptionally good on both. Can’t go with either. Been a while since I owned a different brand — switched to Michelin’s years ago, liked them, and stuck with them.

    I put Michelin Defenders on my 2013 Access.......never regretted. Look for them at Sams Club, they often run them at $70 off their low price for set of 4, and then do life time rotate and balance free as long as you are a Sams member

    In my experience all the tires are pretty good these days.

    I have some Firestone whatevers, the regular truck ones for road. They're great.

    No they don’t. I ran them for years. They are awesome and I highly recommend them.

    My tire of choice, but they are heavier than the Terra Grapplers which obviously matters if he’s doing mostly hwy miles.

    That’s fair. I did off road in mine, but they aren’t on par with the RGs for that.

    I bought my defenders on tire rack. Shipped to my installer for free. Plus 2 yr road hazard for free.
    Received $70 Visa card. No tax. State or federal. Arrived at installer day after I ordered.

    Installer charged me $90 to mount / balance.
