    I don't put many miles on my 2019 DCSB OR. A little bit of local driving. The rest is out in the woods for hunting, fishing, camping trips. I am still running the stock Goodyears. First trip to the Allagash, sliced a tire on the shale roads. I am looking for something a little tougher. May have found it with the Geolander MT003. I want to keep stock wheels and suspension, so am looking at either 235/85R16 or 265/75/R16, both in E rated.

    Anyone with first-hand experience with these tires? Can you talk me into or out of the tire or the sizes? Hopefully I can subsidize the purchase of new tires by selling the stocks(have about 7k miles on them.

    Looking forward to the responses!

    Timely post because I've also been seriously considering these recently. In case you're interested, I've also been considering:
    - Nexen MTX
    - Kenda Klever MT
    - BF Goodrivh KO2
    - Federal Xplora RT (not released yet, but soon supposedly)

    I guess no one has any opinions. Shocked! After all, this is Tacomaworld!

    You need to prime the thread with some pics! Then it’ll get pumping.

    These? Yokos ride great on Yotas. Used Yokos on my other taco in the past but not these specially. I imagine they are exceptional given the brand reputation and that many videos claim these ride quiet for such an aggressive MT.

    If I had the cash I would buy the C-Load 255/75/17’s in a heartbeat.

    I would just question whether or not you need MT’s. Yokohama makes great tires overall, but an MT is going to rougher and be way louder that an A/T or hybrid. BFG KO2’s are a great all around tire and are very popular because of that. Falken Wildpeaks are also very popular. I’m personally running Cooper STMaxx tires that are a bit more aggressive than both of those, somewhere in between an AT and MT. There are lots of great options out there in the 265 size. Anything besides the stock tires are great :rofl:
