    I have a 2014 Toyota Tacoma TRD sport 4x4. I am currently running kenda klevers RT Lt 265/70r/17 120/117R E

    I like the tires but I’ve noticed my truck has trouble staying aligned and my tires eventually get choppy. Not sure if my tires are effecting everything or what ? I’ve ran Toyo’s open country , BF k02 , discover at3 and now my kenda klevers.

    My truck is also stock height. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Check your alignment tabs see if it's flatten out by whoever did your last alignment

    Don't go cheap on tires, I have been buying tires since the 70s.
    Just get a good quality tire and you'll be glad you spent the extra money.
    Good luck with your truck.

    Have you worn out all those tires over many miles, or just like to change tires? That's a lot of different brands. I like my Geolandars. They are quiet, light, have decent road characteristics and snow/rain grip and wear very well. But I don't abuse them.

    Running 35x10.5r17 Kenda Klever RT
    they work
    cheaper than competitors
    seems quieter and better grip than my old WildPeaks, at least in normal conditions
    might be more oriented towards off road. Haven't compared in snow/ice

    The outside edges of the front tires will wear like that. If you rotate them regularly, no more than 5000 miles, that may help prevent them from getting too bad. The more aggressive the tire, the more important this is. On a street tire or an AT that isn't very aggressive you can go longer between rotations.

    It may be time to replace shocks/struts as well.
