    Duratracs are the best cross between mud terrain and road worthy tires out there.

    I can't speak for the off road capability but I just got Yokohama Geolander ATS and love them on the road. Nice and quiet and smooth riding. Got them from DTD after they beat Amazon's price. 139 each with free shipping. But it sounds like you want more of a mud tire.

    Here is a close up.

    If you like mud, stay away from All Terrain TA's (per a friend who has had bad experiences with them packing up and not self cleaning). Grabbers are a desert tire, also not the best for mud.

    The off road magazines tested several mud tires about a year ago and to their surprise the Hankook MT out-performed the others.

    On a personal note, I have the Hankook Dynapro ATMs and they were good in mud and self cleaned well... also QUIET on the highway, and inexpensive!

    overrated tire, outdated design. soft sidewall. expensive. on the plus side, they last looooong time. very loyal following. but imo there are better choices out there for less money. i personally went with hankook dynapro atm's after many on this very site recommended them for the taco. so far very happy, saved a lot of cabbage too.

    you see the reason i am getting new tires is because the lady that had the truck before me put some very cheap sumitomo tires with really hard rubber and really bad traction in wet conditions and today on the way to school i could not stop in time because of the tires and rear ended someone, it was very low speed so damage was minimal ( thank god) i just broke the plastic bumper, hiis truck had a dented rear bumper, well now my dad is making me get new tires asap so thyat is why i say i need a tire that last long and good on road since that is my primary use , but okay off road so i can keep up witih the guys and maybe not get stuck so much :(

    have yet to hear a bad review from anyone who runs them on "this" site...i've run the ta ko on an H2. we got 100K out of them. it's about the only good thing i have to say about them. but like i said, alot of people swear by them, but not me. i have also run dick cepek fc IIs, mickey thompson baja atz's, nitto terra grapplers, goodyear mtr's, kumho ventures, michelin ltx's, that's just off the top of my head. i think i have a decent point of reference when it comes to tires. good luck with your decision, sounds like you really already have your mind made up.

    no not really i was thinking the ta kos but seeing its bad mud reviews is making me rethink it, how many miles you recken you gonna get out of your dynapros? how are they on mud, or rain/ wet conditions?

    Ive had 2 different sets of TA KOs on my truck 285 (33) and 315 (35), Booth were fantastic all around tires. got lots of mileage and worked great off road. I would recommend them anytime.
