    Hey guys need some help finding tires for my 2016 trd off road want to get rid of the stock tires and keep the same size but all I can find with an aggressive tread in the stock load rating is duratracs which are great but I prefer ko2s all I can find in the right size is e rated for them... I love how this truck rides and don't want to change anything about it thanks!

    KO2s only come in E rating on stock size tire for TRD OR. You will have to go up to a 17 inch rim and go up to a 265/70/17 to get a C rated tire.

    Are you going to actually take it off road? In such a way that you need more grip than OE tires will provide?

    Yes? Look for another tire brand, so you can get the rating you want.

    No? Keep what you got and use them. They're fine for parking lots, minor trails and even some fire / logging roads.

    I have abused the hell out of the OEM tires and they work fine in AZ desert which is very very tough terrain. Only reason I would upgrade to more aggressive is for mud but I seldom deal with much mud. It's usually sharp/jagged rocks here and loose dirt or sand. The OEM tires have done exceptionally well. They are much better than the old Rugged Fails. My suggestion is to keep the OEM tires and wear them down. Then buy something else later if you really feel it is necessary.
