    Anybody running these tires? I'm a little skeptical about the looks of such a skinny tire. Please post pics.

    I'm very interested in toyo m/t in 255/85r16. I wonder how they compare to km2 in the same size.

    Too much to list, but enough to get me in trouble. Repeatedly.

    Yeah. These.

    I'm running the KM2 right now in that size. WONDERFUCKINGFUL tire!!! You get the height of 33's, without the immense rubbing issues and rolling resistance of 285's. IMO, the best choice tire size for our Tacos.
    If you have decided on Mud Terrains, really the only size you should consider is the 255/85/16 (or 255/80/17)......if you're avoiding MT's or considering All Terrains, then you're more limited in size selection.
    Don't worry about traction issues with pizza cutters -- there are none. They perform at least as well as 285's, and often better. Sand dunes? That's another issue......

    I like the looks of a 255, especially with a low offset wheel. I just put 255/75/17s on 17x9 -12 offset (4.5 BS) wheels and they look great. IMO 255/265 width tires look better than 285s on our trucks. Not to mention little to no trimming and better fuel economy due to less weight and less rolling resistance.

    I think these are the perfect size for tacomas. I had a set of 33x9.50's on my 1987 toyota with a 22R and i loved them !!!

    i just wish BFG made the AT in that size for the 16" wheel
