    OK i know there are tons of tires posts out there because i've read most of them. But most people on here buy tires for offroading (or the appearance of offroading). Here is my question, i drive alot of miles (35k on my 07). I dont offroad much but i'd like the tires to look a little aggressive, so maybe some kind of all terrain. But i mostly do trailoring. i have a boat so i'm trailering the boat (not far) a few times a month.

    So my question is...what is a good tire for the mild offroading, alot of trailoring, and will pull in all the ladies ;)

    btw i have a 07 Dbl Cab/SR5, towing package and 4x4.

    Thanks

    I went with the General Grabber AT2 and love them. They have good road manners, great in the snow, good for off-roading/ trail riding, and have an agressive look. The Grabbers don't get a lot of voice on this forum for some reason, but I love them. They got great reviews on tirerack, and haven't let me down. Good luck.

    Edit: I have pics in my gallery if you want to see how they look.

    ^Those won't get him any cooter.

    As usual, Firestone Destination A/T's would be my recommendation. The Bridgestone Revo's would also be a good choice but more expensive. They are both what I would consider "mild" off road tires but still have good road manners.

    Wow, I've been underestimating my good looks and witty personality. I was sure it was the tires that were getting me laid, but I guess not huh?;)

    these are the tires that I like and have been researching like crazy..
    BFG A/T 265 70 16
    Bridgestone Revo 265 70 16
    Nitto Terra Grappler 265 75 16
    General Grabber At2 265 70 16
    Toyo Open Country A/T 265 70 16

    the michelin and yokohama are good, but does not look rugged enough. Either is the Dunlop.

    the revos are awesome... but the price isn't feasible for them when others make greater or better than them!

    I heard they are good, hard to balance and all.
    but the price ain't cheap either...

    I just want a deal on tires... Maybe I should get the Nitto or Generel.. :)
