    I put Bridgestone Dueler AT Revo's on my old Dakota and thought they were a huge improvement over the OEM Wrangler RT's. Then again, I haven't ran into any problems with the BFGoodrich OEM's on my Tacoma.

    You will be happy with A/T Revo's. Alot more agressive looking than stock. And great performance.

    -----------------
    I've tried several different tires on my trucks over the years. Here's my very humble opinion on the ones that stood out:

    - BFG A/T: Great, solid tires. Wear well, work well offroad, and are quiet on the street. I got around 40k-50k miles out of them. Everybody runs them, and there's a reason for it.

    - Mickey Thompson Baja Belted HP: Worst tires ever. No siping, no channels for water to escape, hydroplane like mad, and they go out-of-round after 20k-30k miles. It happened on my F150 and my uncle's Wrangler. They look good, but that's about it.

    - Parnelli Jones Dirt Grip: Awesome performance offroad. Simply unstoppable tires, but they hum like crazy on-road. If you can stand the noise, these are phenomenal tires. Rain, snow, mud, sand, etc. Turns out the initials "PJ" really do make the perfect offroad tread design.

    - Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor: I'm currently running these and am amazed by them. Excellent in the snow and rain, lots of siping, truly silent on-road, and perform well on sand and dirt. I haven't run mud with them yet, but I think their lack of sidewall tread could hinder their performance.
    -----------------

    Right now I've got the BFG A/Ts on the truck and plan on racing with BFG M/Ts.

    I put Yokohamas on mine. I have tried a number of tires over the years (I am 58) and found I like Goodyear or Yokohama.

    But I am sure tires are like music. For all those who like a certain genre, there are a bunch more who don't.

    So, this is my 2¢.

    Are they good for the street or the trail? With your supercharger, I bet you could still lay down some rubber. I can't stand how easy it is to make the stock tires chirp. I like accelerating, but I don't like sounding like I am accelerating!

    These work for me.
    Wear is good and they are great off-road without too much road noise

    Tirerack.com, put in the size you'd like, and read the reviews of potential rubber. Good resource.
