    I have no complaints with my Toyo M/Ts...20K miles and still look new! They are a little loud on the road when going above 60.

    And I am pretty happy with the Cooper AT3 I got...and they are still made in the US.

    YMMV, lots of tires, lots of choices and much depends on what is available in your area. Everyone stocks coopers in this part of the world.

    I've had a few of these brand tires in the past. So I'm not totally bias on this vote. I love my Nitto Trail Grapplers. I was looking at the new Toyo Open Country Extreme, I think thats what they are called. The tread is more like the Trail Grapplers, than the original Open Countyr's. I hate seeing the price on the Nitto's being that hi. I didnt pay anywhere close to that when I got mine last year around this time.

    Don't get the Khumo Road Venture MT's. I have the Khumo Road Venture AT's the biggest P.O.S tires I have ever had. I have had them for two years and they are the worst tires I have ever owned.

    Im on my 2nd set of Duratracs on my second 2nd gen Taco. Love them, they do surprisingly good in the rain and are quiter than any other mud tire or all terrain I have run in 15 yrs of wheelin. Side walls arent the toughest like super swampers but the ride is like factory tires IMO.

    i just put on BFG's Rugged Terrain, installed for just under $500. granted they had a $100 rebate and gave me $200 for the stock tires i had. I have a RC with no plans of a lift or serious 4x4ing with mostly commutes to work and some fun off-road drives. Gives it a nice aggressive-ish look but still very pavement friendly
