    Please post the reviews of the tires that you have ran. List the vehicle they were on and the tire size with your review.

    Mud Terrain Tires
    Mud Terrain Tires - MUD TIRES or MT (Mud Terrain) are as you might have gathered from the name, designed to perform most specifically in the mud. But when you look at the tread design of many mud tires, they generally perform well in other conditions such as on the rocks, in deeper snow, as well as in loose gravel and in the softer, constantly changing terrain of wooded trails. This is because mud tires are usually designed from a softer compound with wider gaps (voids) between the lugs, which grab onto anything it can hook one of its lug edges around, especially when aired down. Tread designs typically are what make or break a mud tire and vary widely from manufacturer to manufacturer. Drawbacks of the MT Mud Terrain tire are they perform poorly on the highway especially in the rain where the wide lug pattern results in less of a tire footprint on the road. Even worse, the MT can be downright dangerous in icy conditions. Mud tires also tend to wear quicker than an all terrain or a street tire and depending on your perspective, the on-highway noise level can be considerably higher especially after they wear down with highway use.

    All Terrain Tires
    All Terrains - All Terrain tires or AT are a compromise. All Terrains are an attempt to offer good performance both on road as well as offroad. The ALL TERRAIN TREAD is intended to performs well under a variety of conditions found offroad while still offering acceptable on-highway performance. This is accomplished by using a tread pattern design where the lugs are tighter together than a more aggressive mud tire's tread. The result is usually a quieter ride on the street than a mud tire due to its lesser aggressive tread pattern. When compared to a street tire, All Terrain tires usually produce more noise. The payoff of an All Terrain Tire is that they performs well on a variety of terrains: rocks, sand, somewhat in the mud while still offering decent traction on the paved road. One drawback of an all terrain is that the tread design tends to pack with mud however some of the AT designs perform surprisingly well in muddy conditions. The AT All Terrain is typically the tire for the 4-wheeler who drives their 4x4 as a daily driver and will see minimal trail use and more on highway driving.

    3rd Gen for the win.
    This is all 100% by my personal opinion.
    If youre putting MTs on a daily driver just know they'll wear quickly and sing. ATs in my most humble opinion are the way to go on a daily driver, they handle pretty well in the rain and the good ones will do just as well if youre doing some moderate mudding or wheeling, but if you want to hang with the crawlers while offroad then obviously go with a good mudder.

    BF Goodrich is garbage, they ride rough on the road and wear quickly.
    Goodyear is also garbage, they come stock with just about every car on the lot and that's how they make their money.
    Mickeys are a good tire if you have a street racer but a bit over rated as far as MTs go in my opinion and they wear quickly.
    Dicks are also a good tire but youre really just paying for a fancy name.
    Nittos are my favorite out of this list, they last the longest and have the quietest ride on the street. The ATs seem to last forever, they ride like a highway tire and have an awesome warranty.
    Coopers are a good tire if you want to put MTs on a daily driver, theyre cheaper but the quality is there as is the warranty.
    Faulken is, in my opinion, the same thing as a cooper just Pep Boys put a different name on them but they do have a good warranty.
    Hankooks are about level with Cooper and Faulken but they cost more because they seem to last a bit longer.

    Hope I helped, it seems you've been doing some pretty extensive research on the subject.

    Does anybody have an opinion on the pros/cons of getting a "C" rated tire vs "E" rated. I am looking at the KO2's and the C is cheaper and possibly lighter..? Does that equate to better gas mileage? Any longevity advantages?

    An E-rated tire will be heavier, so it'll ride harder and will decrease your gas mileage, though the amount may be negligible. (Not sure of the exact numbers- really depends on the tires in question.) But since an E-rated tire is sturdier, there would be less risk of a blowout/puncturing it on trails, I would think.

    Thanks- on the BFG site it indicates that the C got a better "road noise" rating. Since I will not be doing any serious off road driving i am concerned with on road driveability and comfort.

    I've had my Nitto Terra Grappler G2's (295/70/18; 34.41") for close to a year now.
    To date, they've been pretty good to me. They aren't noisy in normal weather, rain, or snow.
    They've been through our CO bi-polar, severe weather (mud, rain, snow, slush, a combo of all, etc) and have done well. The traction on these are great as is the even tread wear.

    I'll be in the market for some tires for the 4runner project within the next couple months, I reckon. Just want something decent that won't break the bank. I do intend to offroad, but with the limited options around here, it'll be more mud than technical trail riding.

    I currently have Cooper Discovery RTX's on my 4Runner, reasonably priced. They don't get the mileage of a Michelin MS-2 but they work really well in the rain and snow so far. No loud roar and the ride is smooth.

    1995 Tacoma - stock
    31x10.5 R15
    BFG All Terrain T/A KO

    Bought with the truck and had ~50-60% tread on them. I went offroad with them a few times and was impressed with dry traction on rocks, great handling around town on the pavement, didn't really try them on snow. They were not impressive in mud (even shallow mud with a bottom), but they aren't a mud tire.
    Would buy again (in the new KO2 flavor) if winter traction wasn't a concern.

    1995 Tacoma - stock
    31x10.5 R15
    Hankook i'Pike RW11 - studded

    Bought these new for the winters in Alaska and the traction was great. I took them offroad in the middle of winter and with open diffs could keep up well with a rear differential locked Tacoma. Handled great on ice and snow, really good traction all the way around.
    Would buy again.

    1995 Tacoma - 3-inch suspension lift :mudding:
    33x12.5 R15
    Goodyear MTR with Kevlar

    Bought these used ~80% tread and they have great traction in the mud, rocks, fresh snow, sand, and dirt. They suck on ice, ok on dry pavement but since it is a softer compound mud terrain tire stopping distance was not as good as the BFG All Terrain T/A KO's.
    Would buy again.

    1995 Tacoma - Solid axle swapped... :mudding:
    37x12.5 R17
    Goodyear MTR with Kevlar (Radial)

    Bought these brand new from Sam's Club. Had Costco mount and balance them as Sam's Club didn't have a machine big enough. :rolleyes: Traction is amazing on any trail I've ever been on (except ice) dirt, mud, rocks, sand, and even silt. They suck on ice, even worse than the MTRs in the 33" variety did. I am thinking of having them siped to help with this as I want to wheel more in the winter and they are dangerous on ice. Dry pavement traction is meh, stopping distance kinda sucks. This truck is a trail rig and not a daily driver so I don't mind that. I hate driving it in the winter on icy or compacted snow roads, it slides all over when coming to a stop.
    Would buy again, but next time I want to try the Maxxis Trepador in the same size but bias ply construction due to great reviews from friends and fellow wheelers up here in similar terrain.

    Haven't had long enough to comment.
    So far stock tires are pretty good. They work well on ice and wet/dry pavement. Can't wait to upgrade to a larger size and more aggressive AT but my wallet wants to wait until these wear out first.

    I have ATII's on my Tacoma but just bought the TOYO RT's for my 4R......both ride very smooth and quiet. If you want a more aggressive look but with same ride and noise level, go with the RT's!IMG_0403.jpgIMG_2766.jpg

    Put 265/70/17 KO2's on last weekend. I had Michelin Defender 285/70/17 LTMX on prior. I love the change. the runner responds better in acceleration, braking and handling. They are much much quieter than the michelins as well. I cant wait for some nasty weather to report back on.
