I put on the Firestone Destination A/T's - ranked very well on Tire Rack. I've only had them about 500 miles - very good in rain and truck handles very well and controlled. Haven't tried them offroad yet. Getting a minor snow storm here tomorrow - will test it in the white stuff then.

Bridgestone Dueler HL Alenza. Awesome tire, very quiet and great in the rain. This is my second truck with these tires and they are by far the best tires. If you do not need an offroad type like the Revo's I would def. advise you to buy these.

In 16" I believe TireRack rates the Pirelli ATR's the best in most all catagories. I have them on our FreeLander and they worked great on a trip to SE Colorado earlier this month. Really good grip on slick ice and snow covered roads.

All I've heard was BFG all terrains are nice. I don't know any other brand tires but I think I would recomend BFG's cause I'm totally happy with the rugged trails that come with the truck. It doesn't rain much in san diego but I think these tires do fine when wet and I like it when I use it to go off roading.

i drive mostly highway miles so i went with the bridgestone revos as well. great tires and they hold extremely well in the rain and snow. i put them through the test in the local mountains during a couple of storms and they worked great. quiet ride too so thats another plus.

i went one size up from 265/65-17 to 265/70-17 with no problems. i highly recommend the revos if you do plenty of highway commuting.

I do mostly onroad driving and occasionally go offroad by working on the farm.

I've had excellent luck with Michelin AT series tires. I've had Pirellis and Bridgestones that were crap, but never bought a Michelin tire that disappointed me. Uniroyal (made by Michelin) have given me good service at a cheaper price also.

Other's mules mileage may vary.

The A/T Revos are amazing and are perfectly suited the Tacoma. They are so sure-footed and sticky that I rarely need to use 4wd, even in heavy rain or snow, and the Tacoma handles as well as my Acura on twisty backroads. The best investment you'll make in your truck!

I have been very pleased with the REVOs on my Grand Cherokee. Haven't had 'em in much snow, but they are excellent wet or dry, including cornering. They are on my short list for when my Taco needs new tires.

The Kumhos are a great deal for such a highly rated tire. I would go with those. My dad has them on his 01 Ranger and loves them. I had to talk him into buying them becuase he was weary about a brand that he had not heard of, but he loves them now. Great tire and at a great price.:thumbup:

+1 I have the Kumho's rated #5 in the link posted above (http://www.tirerack.com/tires/surveyresults/surveydisplay.jsp?type=ORAT)

I forget what I paid, but as of now you'd be saving around $280 going with 4 of those instead of Revo's. I deal with rain, snow and some offroading whenever I can. No problems with them. I had them for about 20,000 miles before the snow even started this month and they work fine in the snow. Still lots of tread left. I do a lot of highway, city and country back road driving as I cross all 3 on my way to work each day. Lots of twisty "mountain" roads too. I use 4wd occasionally, but mainly on those back roads where the snow makes the road and ditch/lawn/field merge seamlessly. Not taking any chances on those roads! :lol:


Edit: I also had to drive home one night during a flood warning with 3" water running across a couple roads and 5-6" standing water on a couple more with no traction problems. Only problem I had was seeing out the windshield with water splashing over the cab! :lol:

I like my Toyo Open Country A/T's. They've been great in all weather conditions. Quiet on the highway. A good, cheaper alternative (by about $30 each tire) to the Revo's. These Toyo's have gotten very good ratings.

I was planning on buying the Michilen LTX A/T, after I got about 100,000 miles off my last pair. Had them on a Isuzu Rodeo and they were rotated and balanced religiuosly.

It will be a toss up now after reading this post. Michilen Vs Revos.

proably will come down to price.

My vote also goes to the Bridgestone AT Revo. I went with them because of the reviews here and tirerack.com. I don't recommend it but I did 80mph in a good rain and they stuck to the road like glue. :thumbsup:

another vote for the Revos. If your requirement is good on-road performance with some off-road capabilities, the Revo is a great choice. BFG AT if you want more/better off-road capabilities.

Nitto Terra Grapplers would be another good choice that would be a bit cheaper than the aforementioned tires.

I have put over 80,000 miles on Michelin tires in the past. Currently I have Michelin cross terrains and I think they are one of the best tires out there. 90% on road 10 off road is what my driving consists of.

I'd strongly suggest Bridgestone A/T Dueller Revos (make sure they are REVOS)

I compared the treads of the Bridgestone A/T Dueller Revos to the BF Goodrich All-Terrain(not rugged trail) and the tread on the BF Goodrich All-Terrain seemed to be more of an offroad tread.

I went with the BF Goodrich All-terrain and extremely happy with them as you would be with the Revos.

After checking prices the REVOS cost about $15 more per tire than the Michilens and the REVOS are only rated for 50K miles.

Why would i pay more for a tire that would not last me as long?

Serisouly....are the REVOS that much better....extra cost for less use.
