    Have a Toyota 4Runner SR5 2007 it currently has desert duelers 17 is pretty much a touring Tire on it now...btw this is the tire that Toyota recommended...
    Great Tire BFGoodrich desert duelers.. but I'm looking to put something a touch more aggressive on it that'll still give me a good ride on the road I don't do much off-roading at all but I want to switch it up a little bit any suggestions be a great help!!
    My local tire shop here recommended a nice-looking slightly aggressive all season Cooper Tire but I don't know are Cooper tires going to last like the BFGoodrich desert duelers last
    Ty...

    I purchased these Cooper Discovery RTX's because they were a great value at $132 a piece. They look good and they ride very well in all weather.

    Hey thanks for the quick reply. I just added to my post I was questioning about the Coopers I didn't know if they were a good long-term Tire if you take care of them?
    They look great on yours though thanks for the pic I may look into them do you know how many miles Tire their rated?

    Not sure but the wear is normal on all 4 and I rotate them every 6 months. Pretty sure I will purchase these again.

    Mine is a 2007, it snowed about 8 to 10 inches a few years ago and me and my daughter drove around until 9 pm with no issues. They do just as well in the rain.

    I purchased this 4Runner with 193k miles and it was beaten down....Took two weeks on jack stands and the interior carpet getting replaced to get it back on the road. 234k miles now and we take it everywhere.

    Thanks, it has taken me a bit of work but it now turns a few heads at times. I has seen rough times along the way....
