    just my opinion, but i'd skip on those tires. i had them, and i just didnt ike them, and they didnt last too long. i'd go for the toyo tires myself.

    Those tires are ok for that price, mine lasted a while and i got them used just crappy traction in the desert they handled ok but A/T would have been the shit. i would fork more money for different tires go with toyo unless those tires were good to you.

    yea ive always ran a AT tire on my old taco but this time around i kinda wanna stay near stock cuz im loving my gas mileage right now.... the bfg will be 265/65/17 if i get them, but if i get the toyos they will be 265/70/17 and will be a little worried bout rubbing..... also the bfg rugged weighs in at 37lbs and the toyos A/T is 40lbs

    No.

    I have seen them for as low as $84 each brand new. Even at that price I wouldn't want them. They perform terribly and look like ass.

    yea thats what i heard. i just though it was such a great deal, the toyos are around 140 each... but im also lookin at all white letters wall rather than the white outline that toyo only has....

    how bad is the rubbing on a 265/70/17??

    I dont think you will have to worry about rubbing.

    wat?
    definately no rubbing on a 265/70/17. i'm running an LT 255/75/17 and its slightly bigger than the 265/70 and i had no rubbing w/ it at all at stock height

    if u want a 265/70, get the terra grapplers or bfg all terrains

    that is BFG's poorest tire... definately would not put those back on something if the original set wore out.

    there are MUCH better tires out there that come in all price ranges. hell i had some firestone destination AT's... smooth riding, great wet traction and they were CHEAP.

    I said yes and the only reason is because if I needed new tires really bad because the ones I were driving on were unsafe and I was broke...thats the only way cause those tires are poop IMO
