    Thinking about getting a new paint job.. Purple metallic or pearl, I'm not sure yet.
    I have a 2005 sr5 edition. Right now I have Michelin tires, but they're already starting to dry rot. What's a good brand to go with? I don't go off-roading, but some roads and driveways I drive on are pretty bad anyway. Any advice on what I should get?

    Take a look at the BF Goodrich KO2's. They are a great all terrain tire for any type of surface.

    Cooper Discoverer AT3's. They are an excellent tire for a daily driver, with an emphasis on comfort, noise, but still enough tread to be a decent off roader.

    The cooper's have a 2 ply sidewall so they aren't as strong for off road but they give easy for smoother on road driving. They make a AT/w for winter driving (more sipping ) if you are going off road people like the stronger side walls on some of other at tires. I here they hold the bead better when they lower the air pressure.

    Installed Rago brackets and 4" cube ditch lights. Weather tech mats. Cargo net. Cargo mat. Ordered Gobi rack with ladder.
    Just installed these. Wow, what a tread went with the 275/70/R17's great snow rated tire.
