    Love my Toyo MT/s. Had my first set for 5 years and sold them with a lot of tread left. Theywere driven on everyday about 10 miles or so(at minimum) and went to Tennessee and back 2 or 3 times. They are pricey and a bit on the heavy side but I love em!

    I love my adventuro's, great mud traction, good ice and snow traction for an m/t and pretty quiet on the road. I noticed you had those on your old rig, how'd you like them? I just voted for them because i have them and like them.
    If not, get thronbirds! :cool: :cheers:

    Sharp looking tire berg. OP I see this tire, like the Duratracs are available in Load C (at least in some sizes). Unlike most MTs this makes for a lighter tire and better MPGs. Albeit not ideal for hardcore offroading.

    I have ProComp Xtreme MT's on my truck now, they are near the end of their life. Worn just past the siping as of now. When they were new, they were awesome. Aired down, they floated on deep snow, aired up, they dug till they found something to bite on. Mud good when new. They throw rocks like a Mo-Fo. They used to be quiet, but now.....I cannot wait till they are gone. Kind of pricey as well.

    I have 265/75R16 Toyo MT's and love em. I've got over 40,000 miles on them and they still have alot of tread left. They are 10ply which makes them heavy but I havent had any problem with them. The main thing is to keep them rotated. Check out my pics, you might can tell a little bit about how much tread is left.

    Mud tires are GREAT for mud, but terrible on almost everything else...what you need is a tire that LOOKS aggressive, but rides and handles well.

    I put some inexpensive MudStar Mud Terrains M/T and while they do GREAT in deep, soft mud, they tear up my gravel roads.

    Why don't you get the Cooper STT, they are still made in the US

    I've got the fierce Attitude M/T's as well. Not too much noise from a big lug tire and the grip anything is a hair short of amazing. Have 15000 miles on them and they look like they barely have any wear!!

    I voted for KM2s. Road noise is there, but imo I think that it's pretty quiet for a MT tire. The only department where it lacks is when it's raining. They do not perform well at all when the road surface is wet. I finally had a chance to test them out this past weekend with a little bit of offroading and I was impressed. There were quite a few trails where the majority of the other Tacomas in the group either struggled or didn't make it through, but I was able to truck on without a hiccup. The lugs didn't chug off like my previous set of Maxxis Buckshot through the loose rock/dirt areas.

    So got my MTRs installed today. So far they look damn good IMO, and they are pretty quiet at highway speeds (60mph) compared to my BFG ATs.....I will post more info after I get some more miles on them :thumbsup:

My favorite tires so far...surprising how quiet they are...down side is weight..
